EXCLUSIVE: DC Comics’ Vixen Joins Rebirth’s Justice League of America

She already stars in her own animated series and was a featured guest star on “Arrow’s” fourth season. Now, DC ComicsVixen will see her profile raised even higher as one of the members of the upcoming “Justice League of America” series.

Vixen will make her debut as a member of the team in January, starring in the “Justice League of America: Vixen” one-shot. Steve Orlando and Jody Houser will co-write the issue, with Jamal Campbell illustrating. Ivan Reis, Joe Prado and Marcelo Maiolo will provide the issue’s cover. Orlando is also writing the monthly “JLA” comic debuting in February.

The hero, who received her animal-based powers via a mystical totem worn around her neck, was created in 1978 by Gerry Conway and Bob Oksner, and was intended to be the first African female to star in her own comic. The series was canceled before the first issue was released, and the character made her official DC Universe debut in 1981’s “Action Comics” #521.

For decades, Vixen bounced around the DCU as a member of various incarnations of the Justice League, the Suicide Squad and the super-secret spy organization Checkmate. In 2008, thirty years after she was originally intended to go solo, DC released a “Vixen” miniseries by G. Willow Wilson and CAFU.

Foes of evil! Enemies of injustice! As it began in DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH, for the mighty heroes of the Justice League of America, all wrongdoing is a menace to be stamped out! Whether it comes from outer space, from the watery depths of the seven seas, or springs from the minds of men, the JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA is back—just when we need it most!

In January 2017, kicking off JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA (hitting shelves twice monthly starting February 2017) are four DC Rebirth one-shots. They make four bold statements that form the foundation of a team that will bring justice to places that have given up on hope; places that thought heroism would never find them. The Justice League of America goes there! They explore the Microverse, the Hidden Cities, the worlds within worlds; they go to the other side of the map and explode forward with the new face of Heroism.

This is a Justice League that looks like America, that proves Heroism can look like ANYTHING and ANYONE.

From February 1960 to February 2017. The mission hasn’t changed. It’s just evolved.

Who’s on the roster? VIXEN. She’s one of the country’s most successful businesswomen, an iconic fashion pioneer, a crusader for social justice, and an incredibly powerful member of the Justice League of America. But Mari McCabe life wasn’t always this way. Follow her path to becoming the heroic Vixen in this crucial special!
