Back in January it was announced that Marc Guggenheim is working on an animated series based upon the DC character Vixen, which will take place in the same universe as the Arrow and The Flash series and air on The CW’s digital network CW Seed. The CW is set to give fans a sneak peek at the series during its panel at Comic-Con, but before then we’ve got an official synopsis:
Originally from Africa, Mari McCabe’s parents were killed by local greed, corruption, and wanton violence. But the orphaned Mari refuses to succumb to the terrors surrounding her. Inheriting her family’s Tantu Totem, Mari can access the powers of animals-anything from the super-strength of a gorilla to the speed of a cheetah. As Vixen, she fights valiantly to protect the world from threats like those that claimed her family.
Meanwhile, it’s also been announced that the six episode series is set to arrive in the fall and will feature the voices of Stephen Amell (Oliver Queen/Arrow), Grant Gustin (Barry Allen/The Flash), Emily Bett Rickards (Felicity Smoak) and Carlos Valdes (Cisco Ramon).
