The CW’s animated web series featuring African-born superhero Vixen just got renewed for another season.
But that’s not the big news. The producers have decided that the character deserves a role in the main DC TV Universe, and she’s heading for the fifteenth episode of Arrow’s fourth season. Voice actress Megalyn Echikunwoke is reprising her role, and going on this Tweet by Stephen Amell, she’s already getting well and truly immersed in the role:

For the uninitiated, Vixen wears a totem that has the power to draw upon the Earth’s morphogenetic field and give her the abilities of any animal that ever lived. Born in Africa and later based out of New York, she uses the totem’s power to fight crime.
I’m now becoming intrigued as to how many more characters from the extended Justice League are going to show up in Flash, Arrow and even Supergirl. Since there’s around eighty years of continuity to draw from, there’s plenty of choice. But so long as they’re doing it well, keep ’em coming. Anyone for Green Lantern versus Solomon Grundy?
