After their run in with the Demolition Team last week, Team Arrow is calling in reinforcements to deal with Damien Darhk’s latest scheme. Following her stint in her own CW Seed animated series last year, Megalyn Echikunwoke’s Mari McCabe AKA Vixen is making a transition to the live-action Arrowverse to help out Oliver Queen and his crew on this Wednesday’s episode of ‘Arrow’. And now we have a new look at the heroine as she joins up with Team Arrow.
Before she heads to The CW this week, we have our first look at Vixen on the hit DC Entertainment series. First, Comic Book Movie has a gallery of stills featuring the vigilante from Detroit. Additionally, we’ll see Anna Hopkins return as Samantha Clayton, which isn’t exactly a surprise since *SPOILER ALERT* Darhk has kidnapped her and Ollie’s son, William.
If pictures aren’t enough for you, the latest promo for the fourth season’s fifteenth episode features a glimpse at Vixen in action. There’s also the beginning of a very awkward conversation between the newly-engaged Oliver and Felicity. You can check out the preview below courtesy of Cinema Blend, followed by the official synopsis of the episode:

VIXEN JOINS TEAM ARROW – Oliver (Stephen Amell) 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 (Willa Holland) has a heart-to-heart talk with Malcolm (John Barrowman).
Business is about to pick up in Star City, but luckily a heavy hitter like Vixen is on the way. Are you excited to see if she turns the tide in Team Arrow’s favor? Or do you think that Damien Darhk’s evil plot proves to be too much for our heroes? Sound off in the comments below.
