Mari McCabe, portrayed by actress Megalyn Echikunwoke (above), was introduced last season on ‘Arrow.’ The¬†Detroit vigilante¬†imbued with the animalistic powers of a sacred totem was well-received on the show and with The CW‘s Berlanti-verse, where all their superhero shows (The Flash, Supergirl, and the previously two mentioned), it is easy for the character to transition to this different series.

“I don’t know who you are. I don’t know what you want. If you’re looking for ransom, I can tell you I don’t have money… My fiance does! But I don’t anymore. What I do have are a very particular set of skills. Skills I have acquired over five years in hell, mostly on a weirdo island in the South China Sea. Skills that make me something else. If you let my son go now, that will be the end of it. Well, not the end of it because you’re still failing this city. But for sure if you don’t, I will look for you, I will find you… and I will kill you. Well not kill you because I don’t do that anymore. You know…” (more…)

Sorry if I’m being intolerant, but with DC Comics being among the top two amazing comic book sellers and the legendary awesomeness of the Justice League Unlimited cartoon, if you don’t know who Vixen is, then you’re just not trying to be a good enough nerd. She has a long history of heroism and deserves a ton of respect for having an original power, being a great female hero, and for representing an underrepresented faction of the world of supers. She’s never been seen live action and she’s only had part-time cartoon love, but now we’re gonna see her in her very own project.
