Justice League redesigns, part 3 of 12.
Having asked you all pick your favourite Justice League members from a selective list, Vixen placed last. Out of 90 votes, she only received two.
In reinventing the Justice League and basing them out of New York City, I decided that Mari McCabe would best be suited as a high-powered magazine editor not unlike Anna Wintour (why let all the skinny old white ladies have all the fun?). Of course, she's someone who knows fashion as Mari spent years as a supermodel but has grown up to share that love of style with the world through her tenure as EIC of SHE Magazine. However, Mari also happens to be a superheroine who uses her unique abilities to fight against villains everywhere as the newest member of the Justice League. She continues to find it hard to fit in with an established team but maintains a fairly close friendship with Wonder Woman due to the fact that her sister, Donna Troy, works as a photographer for SHE Magazine.
Vixen's catsuit was largely inspired by ones worn by Janet Jackson and Kelly Rowland. I loved the idea of it having these "V" lines all over it since it references her name. I also liked keeping it full-body. The hairstyle for Vixen is an updated short hairstyle I feel looks fabulous on her. The colour scheme, however, was something I toiled over. I kept going between red and orange for the suit but ultimately settled on this combination. Since her namesake is of a female fox, I decided to have her colour scheme be directly inspired by a fox's. It's never been done before for her so I think it's brilliant.
