"Arrow" and "The Flash" Welcome 'Vixen'

According to The CW, home of the recently renewed TV series "Arrow" and "The Flash",  "Arrow" showrunner Marc Guggenheim will develop another new series, based on DC Comics female superhero character 'Vixen' set in the same shared universe:

Guggenheim will produce the animated superhero series "Vixen", to air on The CW's digital-only network, CW Seed.

'Vixen', aka 'Mari Jiwe McCabe' was created by writer Gerry Conway and illustrator Bob Oksner, debuting in DC's "Action Comics" #521 (July 1981).

'Vixen' possesses the innate ability to make direct contact with the Earth's 'morphogenetic field', aka the 'Red'. By focusing on a specific animal, she can draw its skill and mimic its abilities, thus giving herself a variety of superhuman powers. 

Vixen has used the flight of a hawk, the ability to breathe under water like a fish, the swimming ability and sonar of a dolphin, the speed of a cheetah, the constriction of an anaconda, the strength of a bull elephant, the agility of a spider monkey, etc.

"...the 'CW Seed' is The CW’s digital-only network. It’s where we blur the line between television and the web and experiment with high-quality original series in smaller sizes.

"Basically, it’s where we go digging for what’s next..."
