Vixen Throws Down in New 'Arrow' Clip

Oliver seeks help from Vixen on a new Arrow, tonight at 8/7c!
Wednesday night, Megalyn Echikunwoke makes her long-awaited debut in an all-new episode of Arrow as DC Comics superhero Vixen. After a successful run in the animated shorts that ran on the CW's online channel CW Seed, Echikunwoke moves from voicing the cartoon version to embodying the live-action heroine. 

Ollie calls in some help from Vixen in trying to take down Damian Darhk. This marks the first live-action appearance for Vixen whose previously appeared in comics and animation. Her amulet allows her to harness the powers of the animal kingdom to fight crime. 

More importantly, Echikunwoke as Vixen becomes just the third woman of color to join the CW/DC universe as a superhero. Hopefully, if she doesn't get a solo series then she could join the 'Legends of Tomorrow' team. 

'Arrow' episode "Taken" premieres Wednesday at 8 p.m. on the CW.




Oliver realizes he needs help battling Darhk (guest star Neal McDonough) so he calls in an old friend – Vixen (guest star Megalyn E.K.). Using her magical ability to summon animal powers, Vixen gets a lock on Darhk’s location and the team goes to war. Meanwhile, Thea has a heart-to-heart talk with Malcolm.

WONDER WOMAN OF THE DAY: Fitness Model Gia Macool Embodies the Amazon Princess

The closest we'll ever get, probably, to superheroes in real life is through the great work of cosplayers. You see them at every pop culture convention from the very basic to extremely elaborate costume design. However, you don't have to be a cosplayer to enjoy dressing up as your favorite superhero from time to time. Take fitness model and entrepreneur Gia Macool for example. An accomplished fitness competitor and model, Macool is also a big fan of DC Comics' Wonder Woman. She shows her love of the iconic Amazon Princess in her fitness wear, meal prep accessories and even a full blown photo shoot in a Wonder Woman costume. 

For decades comics have featured very muscular superheroes, male and female, epitomizing the human form at its strongest. So when bodybuilders and fitness pros decide to suit up as these costumed heroes, they are the embodiment of those fictional characters in the flesh. Macool looks like she stepped out of the pages of a Wonder Woman comic with a suit …

PREVIEW: 'Barbarella' #9 by Mike Carey and Kenan Yarar

Barbarella has been lied to. Worse, she’s been weaponized, and someone’s going to answer for that, for sure. (Well, assuming she survives the judgment of the Esseverine sun-giants, and an armada of a thousand ships...)
