Synopsis for Vixen in "Pantheon, Part 1: Impala"
Charles Mokose, the speedster hero known as Impala, tries to contact Dr. Mist about an emblem causing nearly everyone near a dig site in the Kendisi Province of Lamumba to go crazy. As they finally establish contact, Impala asks if they should call in the Justice League, Mist states they can't and tells him they know a local hero who can help, before warning him to run. In Cape Town, the super-model and hero Vixen expresses dissatisfaction at the shooting crew of the magazine whose cover she is supposed to appear on, berating it's head Elise for designing a fake jungle scene with a stuffed lion when she wanted an authentic location.
Elise tries to state that their "lion" is not stuffed, before Vixen tells her that such things have been tried with her before and she has no interest. An injured Impala suddenly arrives there, shocking the crew, and tells Vixen that she's needed. as she tries to apprise her of the situation, he finds himself struggling to speak. Taking off his Impala totem mask, he tells her that he's with the Global Guardians and they need her from preventing an apocalyptic situation from coming to pass. Mist rejected calling in the League and their only other choice is the former hero Victoria Santini.
Vixen agrees to Impala's request, despite Elise's objections, and changes into her superhero outfit using the Tantu Totem. Impala's wounds meanwhile heal due to his mask and he runs back to Lamumba, with Vixen following in flight. She tries to ask him why Mist doesn't want the League involved, but finds he's running too fast to hear her. Mist suddenly appears in her mind as a vision, despite her dislike of it, and states he can answer her questions. He shows her a memory of a United Nations archaeological dig team under Dr. James Krieg, working with Gorilla City's research council to recover a dangerous artifact. Upon being recovered however, it started possessing Krieg and twisting others.
Mist explains that he doesn't want the League's help, because the artifact might turn them into a threat, but she and Impala are immune to its effects due to their totems. He asks her to neutralize it while Impala rescues the dig workers. As she enters the wind funnel around the artifact's location, she hears a voice telling her to come to them. As Vixen enters the voice where the storm is originating from, she realizes it was Dr. Krieg who was talking to her. Krieg grabs her with his mystical energy and reveals he is actually the god Nyame, stating she belongs to him. She punches Krieg with gorilla strength, but he is unfazed and becomes angry, causing an explosion with his power. Impala, after seeing this, tells Mist they should call in the League.
