The Vixen and The Phantom




I thought that The Vixen's first live action appearance on Arrow a few weeks back was just about perfect.  The DC TV Universe can make some puzzling alterations to the characters they include from time to time, but this was an example where they got it just right.  From casting to costume to the use and visualization of her powers, it was just as if Mari McCabe stepped right out of the comics.  Out of all the characters introduced so far, I think Vixen has the strongest spin-off potential. Let's get her on her own show or at least as a regular member of Legends of Tomorrow!

I totally agree. Vixen on a season of Legends would be awesome. Pair her with Constantine and we have the start of a mystical based group.

Never heard about Vixen before, but The Phantom, hey, cool!!

Cool cover, but I'm still waiting or that golden age PHANTOM and PHANTOM LADY team-up.

Where did the Phantom artwork come from? I don't recognize the style

At the VERY least, she deserves an STF crossover with the Black Panther. :-)

P.S.---and I mean JUST THE TWO of them!*

*Using the previous foursome is an unworthy cop-out.
