The CW is teasing us with a first look at Megalyn Echikunwoke‘s live-action Vixen ahead of her Arrow cameo in February.

The actress currently voices the DC Comics superheroine in an animated CW Seed series, which has just been renewed for a second season.

In the promo shot above, a longer-haired Vixen aka Mari Jiwe McCabe has changed her wardrobe from the sleeveless catsuit to a longsleeve armored suit with built-in gloves and a pair of black leather mid-calf boots. Tucked inside the suit is her family’s Tantu Totem, the necklace which gives her the powers of any animal.

Originally from the fictional African nation of Zambesi where her parents were killed, Vixen was created by Gerry Conway and Bob Oksner and first appeared in Action Comics #521 in July 1981. She eventually joins the Suicide Squad.

If you’ve missed Vixen you can now see the entire first season in a single 30-minute episode on CW Seed.
