Originally from Africa, Mari McCabe’s parents were killed by local greed, corruption, and wanton violence. But the orphaned Mari refuses to succumb to the terrors surrounding her.
Inheriting her family’s Tantu Totem, Mari can access the powers of animals – anything from the super-strength of a gorilla to the speed of a cheetah. As Vixen, she fights valiantly to protect the world from threats like those that claimed her family.
A fine attempt at bringing Vixen onto the CW, but until there's a live-action version of her Vixen will always be the bastard child of the Arrowverse. Neglected and barely given enough time to develop exciting episodes, the short episode time will annoy more than excite. The Arrowverse's portrayal of Vixen is beyond interesting. In fact, it's shocking that Vixen hasn't been featured on either Arrow or The Flash.
This is interesting. I would've preferred to see a live action version of this show. Though it will be nice if they decide to introduce her character to either Arrow or The Flash (or Legends of Tomorrow?). That being said, having just finished the first 5 episodes, I do like her character so far.
