WATCH: "Vixen" Premiere Episode Pits Mari against Arrow and the Flash

In the debut episode of CW Seed's "Vixen" webseries, Mari McCabe (Megalyn Echikunwoke) goes toe-to-toe with the law as well as Arrow and the Flash. Opening with the classic classic misunderstanding-on-first-meeting, Mari finds herself darting across rooftops of Motor City in order to avoid the vigilantes, while a flashback finds her in prison after a job interview gone wrong.

The series focuses on Mari, who -- after the death of her parents -- inherits a magical totem that bestows upon her the ability to access the inherent attributes of animals, from the speed of a cheetah to the powerhouse charge of a rhino and more. As the superhero Vixen, McCabe seeks to protect the world from the greed, corruption and violence that took the lives of her parents.

"Vixen" takes place in the same reality as "The Flash" and "Arrow". Along with prominently featuring characters from those shows, "Vixen" also features the voices of the actors themselves, with Grant Gustin as the Flash, Stephen Amell as the Arrow Oliver Queen, Emily Bett Rickards as Felicity Smoak and Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon.

The first episode of "Vixen" is currently streaming on CW Seed's website.
