Part of Warner Bros. and DC Comic's mega-panel of all their new shows at Comic-Con on Saturday was the digital-only animated series Vixen.

Megalyn Echikunwoke will voice Mari Jiwe McCabe, AKA Vixen, who wears the "Tantu Totem," a necklace with mystical powers that was passed down through her family. Vixen was the first African-American female superhero in DC Comics. She's expected to make cameos on Arrow and The Flash in their upcoming seasons.
