    No thanks. The last thing I want to see is Batman telling Vixen how to use her own powers, him treating her like one of his operatives and her having to deal with his moodiness and all the other baggage he's got. Not to mention I'd hate for people who aren't that familiar with Vixen to start thinking she is a Batman character.

    No. Even putting aside my own dislike of creators blatantly self-inserting as Batman and hooking him up with various other heroines (Black Canary (Miller), Zatanna & Diana (Dini), Lois (Snyder), etc), Batman already has so many other LIs. Heís got Catwoman and Talia as his main romances, teases with Diana, Mari gets absolutely nothing as a character from being in a relationship. At best itís a fling where sheís just another conquest for his fanboys to boast about, at worst she becomes another Batman hanger-on, used to prop him up when writers want to, unable to really move on because she keeps getting dragged back into his orbit. It canít go anywhere and it just wastes time that could be spent in developing Mari as a character elsewhere.

    If you want that Batman archetype though, Bronze Tiger works just fine (yeah Iím shilling my ship what of it?)

    I just remembered that they paired Vixen with B'wana Beast on Batman: The Brave and the Bold.

    The only thing I see her getting out of it is publicity. Which all those women have benefited from at. One point or another. But that’s fleeting

    The least Vixen needs is to be pushed as another sidekick of Batman so he can look good.

    Its a crown, as befitting a queen.

    Seriously though, what was the inspiration behind her hair?

    High fashion as designed by people chained to a desk?

    I was guessing it was supposed to be evocative of a fox's ears (since a female fox is a vixen, and they pushed that a bit in her earliest appearance). On the other hand, maybe it's just the '80s. Either way, I do not like that hair.
