The first pic of Megalyn E.K. as the DC Comics heroine Vixen has arrived, and aside from the hair, it’s a true representation of the hero in the comics.
For those who are unaware, Megalyn E.K. voiced Vixen in the animated series (called Vixen) on the CW Seed this past fall. It was so popular among fans, and among the team making Arrow, that it was decided to introduce a live-action version of her in the fourth season of Arrow. She will debut in the fifteenth episode of season four, which is actually only five episodes away.
In the comics, Mari McCabe uses a sacred amulet to mimic the powers and natural abilities of the world creatures, making her an incredibly versatile and powerful hero. This was shown in full via her animated series, and, as you can see in the pic above, the amulet and her powers seem to be making the transition.
Not so ironically, the fourth season of Arrow has been dealing more and more with the magical and supernatural aspects of the DC Universe, from lead villain Damien Darhk, to John Constantine, and even the island flashbacks, magic seems to be everywhere. So this won’t be out of place when she arrives.
