Why Vixen is Awesome!
- She’s among the small but eclectic number of non-white superheroes. Represent.
- She’s a supermodel. Hawt.
- She’s of native African ancestry. Foreign often translates to exotic.
- Catsuits, baby, catsuits.
- She’s one of the few female capes who’s a heroine in her own right, not just an extension of a male hero. Word, sista.
- Her powers are mystical in origin. It’s maaaaaagic!
- She can channel the powers of animals: strength of a lion, weight of an elephant, speed of a cheetah, night vision of a cat, echo-location of a dolphin, tracking ability of a wolf, etc. The skills of the entire animal kingdom without that annoying zoo smell.
- She once dated John Stewart–not the host of The Daily Show, although that would REALLY be awesome.
- She’s getting her own animated web series online. There’s your plug, DC, now pay us.
