The ''ComicBook/{{New 52}}'' relaunch of the entire DC Universe in September 2011 reintroduced Vixen as part of the ComicBook/JusticeLeagueInternational. Her origin was subsequently tweaked a little with the ''ComicBook/DCRebirth'' relaunch in 2016 - her father gave her the Tantu Totem for safekeeping just before his brother killed him, and she escaped with it, becoming Vixen later in life after getting involved with a kidnapping case.



With the ''ComicBook/{{New 52}}'' relaunch of the entire DC Universe in September 2011, Vixen was reintroduced as part of the ComicBook/JusticeLeagueInternational.

* SuperpowerLottery: Originally she could only mimic a few animals at a time with the Tantu Totem. As of now, not only does she not need the totem for powers, she can mimic the characteristics of absolutely any animal at any time, without losing control. She was also temporarily able to mimic the abilities of other metahumans and superheroes, such as the Kryptonian abilities of Superman, Red Arrow's archery skills, Black Lightning's fulgurkinesis, and could even generate her own copy of Green Lantern's ring. This power was later removed and her original animal mimicry was restored.

* UpgradeArtifact: The Tantu Totem originally, a fox-shaped talisman, which enables her to tap into the "morphogenetic field" of the Earth. This allows Vixen to mimic the abilities of any animal she can think of, by simply focusing on a specific animal abilities and then drawing it directly from the field. Now she actually doesn't need it.

* ClarkKenting: She is a maskless hero, although the rest of her costume [[AbsoluteCleavage may be enough of a distraction]] - or maybe she just has a public ID, since she's a supermodel in her civilian identity.
** While Vixen did wear a mask at the beginning of her career, her identity is definitely public knowledge by now. In Creator/GrantMorrison's ''ComicBook/AnimalMan'' run, she showed up at the title hero's house in-costume, and Animal Man's wife was shown {{Fangirl}}ing over the fact that a popular supermodel was in her living room.
