However, the orphaned Mari refused to succumb to the terrors surrounding her. Inheriting her family's Tantu, Mari can access the powers of such animals as the super-strength of a gorilla to the speed of a cheetah. As Vixen, she fights valiantly to protect the world from evil threats like those that claimed the lives of her family."
