    I can't vote in that poll because I don't feel that DC should have just one premier black superhero. There are plenty that should get more attention. Including Vixen, who grows on me as I get older.
    that's the last option in the poll

    How about her grandmother on DC's Legends of Tomorrow, Willie? I could look at Maise Richardson-Sellers all day long for the rest of my life.

    That's not how I've read it to be honest. In the opening post it states that this poll is about which black DC hero should get the biggest push across all media. The final option on the poll says that there shouldn't actually be just one but that there should be more than one black hero on the JL. They don't exactly equate to me. Having more characters in the JL would improve their profile in a way but not in a way that getting a big multi-format push would.

    I think we know the score here Darknight. If you find an actress attractive then it's pretty nailed on that I'm gonna do as well . Yeah, Maisie Richardson-Sellers is lovely also.

    You ever seen some of the upcoming previews on the CW page on YouTube? On the LOT previews they conclude with Richardson-Sellers plugging further CW stuff. She's got what I think is a delightful English accent. And I am English!

    Sure there are plenty of crazy abilities from the animal kingdom that she could utilize. But I don't think theres any that could go up against Justice League Level threats like doomsday, darkseid, brainiac or such.
    Again she can channel aliens and mythological animals

    Yes, I have noticed in the past you have excellent taste when it comes to that.

    Yes, her voice is angelic, too. IMO, she's walking perfection.

    While I can't speak to the extent of the types of aliens in the DC universe she'd have access too, I don't think a Unicorn would pose much of a threat to Darkseid either it.

    Darkseid can go toe to toe with superman so I don't think theres much a dragon could do, and he lives on a planet that is constantly spewing pillars of fire so he seems pretty comfortable around fire.

    Again, I don't have an issue with Vixen, I just don't think she can compete with the JL. Batman gets a pass because he's Bat God and he's a tactical genius that the team can benefit from.

    She once channeled Superman's powers. Hell she could even use Darkseid's powers on him

    Lol. Sorry, I'm not super versed in Vixen lore. The idea that she could channel superman's powers is hilarious though. So she can basically mimic the powers of an creature, humanoid or otherwise? That's kind of ridiculous.

I like her much better on a toned down team like the JLA roster where she wont be overshadowed.
    But animals are extremely powerful compared to humans in real life, especially considering the fact (someone please correct me if I'm wrong on this next point) that Vixen has the proportionate abilities of whichever animals she decides to mimic, like Spider-Man has the proportionate powers of just ONE animal. I think Vixen could potentially be beyond Spider-Man level in terms of having the proportionate powers and abilities of the entire animal kingdom, which makes her EXTREMELY versatile and dangerous. Plus she can combine the powers and abilities of animals and mimic several animals at once.

    For some reason, DC Entertainment doesn't treat her as one of the Justice League's most powerful members. As literally having the powers of the entire animal kingdom, Vixen SHOULD be standing next to "gods."

    But we're talking about "in-story" reasons why Vixen and Batman are on the Justice League, and although Batman has a genius-level intellect, HE really shouldn't be in the field throwing down with the likes of Doomsday, Darkseid, Braniac or such. In the JL and JLU episodes all I remember seeing him doing physical-wise against these types of threats is throwing exploding batarangs or whatever. The Animal Kingdom is humongous, so I'm sure there are animals Vixen could mimic and combine to go up against Justice League-level threats.

    Now if Batman were to remain in the Watchtower giving battle strategies to his teammates via comlinks or whatever, fine. But for him to actually be out in the field trying to physically throw down with these super-powered villains, I think he is completely out of his "LEAGUE" (smirks and puts pinky to mouth like Dr. Evil.) Vixen, on the other hand, can throw DOWN. She comes at you with a full head of steam, you don't know WHAT animal(s) she's currently mimicking. Not to mention her power levels fluctuate depending on which animal(s) she is mimicking.
