Vixen Episode 1 – Review

Shares

As reported the first episode of the new Arrow/The Flash spinoff Vixen has made its way online through CW Seed, an online site connected to the The CW Network.

While I was disappointed in the 5 minute run time, that didn’t keep me from being interested more in the character as I have little knowledge of the character before writing about her for DCComicsMovie.com. Before that I had only seen her in stuff like Justice League: Unlimited (voiced by Gina Torres)

Director: James Tucker

Writers: Wendy Mericle, Keto Shimizu, Brian Ford Sullivan, Lauren Certo

Cast: Neil Flynn as Chuck, Kevin Michael Richardson as D.O.C Guard, Fred Tatasciore as Police Sergeant.

NOTE: The credits feature more credits, but I only included who is actually in the episode.

REVIEW {SPOILERS}

The animation is amazing, animation for me lately is on and off in terms of good, usually to get me invested the story has to be good(Batman Vs Robin)otherwise if the animation and story are bad you get something like Son of Batman. The action from what we get is also great, I like the addition of both the Arrow and The Flash theme music when the episode opens. Voice acting is done very well too, thought for a second it was another Andrea Romano voiced production, but it is not. As for story, well we only get less than 5 minutes, which for the short time we get we get to know a bit about the character, but I am guessing this series will be best watched after all the episodes are done for the season. However, we here at DCComicsmovie.com will watch each one as it premieres. The one thing that I wanted to know though is when in the timeline does this take place? It appears that The Flash has the costume he will get in Season 2, but this episode is airing now. All in all not a bad start, 4 out of 5

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me

  • Totally agreed. The only downside for this, is that it’s only 5 minutes. I hope there are enough EPs to make a full length feature, or at least close to it.
