Synopsis for Vixen in "Pantheon, Part 2: Yemaya"
As Vandal Savage screams that he has become a god, a team of heroes led by the demigod Gilgamesh arrives. Gilgamesh tells Savage that he could be a god or the artifacts called "Seven God Emblems" have just corrupted him. Gilgamesh then orders his team to attack and Savage tries to fight back, stating he has the power of seven gods. As the goddess Oya binds him in her lasso, while her teammate steals the artifacts from Savage. Doctor Mist, who at that time was simply called Nommo, scatters them across the world to ensure they won't be a threat again. As Savage promises to find them again and crush his enemies, Anasi tells him that he wasn't at fault since the power of the gods had driven him mad.
After putting Savage to sleep and making him forget about the emblems, Anansi asks his "grandchild" if the dream has shown her enough to know what she needs to do. As he questions further, Vixen wakes up and is looked after by Impala as well as a Global Guardian corps officer. She tells them she's fine and asks Impala about Krieg, learning from him that he has already left the place. Mist interrupts her as she suggests going after him, and reveals that her Tantu Totem, the only way to protect her from the influence of the emblems, was destroyed in the fight with Nyame, who's controlling Krieg. This infuriates Vixen, and she lifts Mist into the air after Impala suggests recruiting Flint instead, stating she will settle the score with Krieg.
As Impala questions Vixen how she still has powers, she reveals her totem only allows her to use her powers to her full range. Mist allows her to accompany them and states they must travel to Kenya. While riding a helicopter, Vixen asks Mist how he tracked Krieg down and he starts telling her about the Seven God Emblems, explaining that they were created by gods in past and each of them corrupts one into believing they are a god. Vixen guesses the emblems must be from the older gods and surprises that Anansi showed her how his team defeated Vandal Savage, who had taken possession of the emblems. As she states that's how they will defeat Krieg, Impala informs they've found him and to tell them quickly if she has any plan.
Vixen confirms Impala's suspicions that the two will need to fight Krieg on the ground, but is warned by Mist that the Tantu Totem was the only thing protecting her. She however takes flies off with Impala anyway, not paying heed to the warning, and tells Impala that she'll tell him about the plan while they fly to their destination. Nyame later calls upon his sibling to join him and promises they will have a new host, but Impala steals the emblem that would enable it. As Nyame tries to stop him, Vixen attacks from behind and tells Impala to run. The god however manages to snatch the emblem using his power and puts it around Vixen's neck, enabling the goddess Yemaya to return.
