History: Mari is the daughter of the Reverend Richard Jiwe, crusading African priest and heir to ancient witch doctor known as Tantu. Tantu’s real distinction is that he was given a formidable magic charm by a spider god( actually a race of benevolent aliens)and charged with the mission of protecting the innocents from the evils of mankind. Needless to say, this ‘Tantu Totem’ was passed on within the Jiwe family from generation to generation until it finally reached the humble hands of Mari’s father, an event which caught the eye of Mari’s uncle, General Makasi, who promptly murdered his half-brother and claimed the Totem for himself. Mari somehow managed to get the Tantu Totem and fled to America, where she created the costumed identity of Vixen. To support herself, she began a highly successful career as a fashion model. After a few cases, she was accepted for membership in Aquaman’s newly formed Justice League. Just after Mari joined the JLA, she was once again confronted by her villainous half-uncle, who was still trying to obtain possession of the Tantu Totem, a mission he eventually accomplished. Since Makasi wasn’t prepared to use the Totem in the cause of justice, however, its magic turned him into a raging ox that attacked Vixen. During the ensuing battle, he impaled himself on a sheet of shattered glass, allowing Mari to recover the Totem. Mari went on with the League until it was dissolved after the death of Vibe and Steel. She used this as a cue to retire from heroing. A couple of months later, events forced her to come out of retirement to join the Suicide Squad. With the Squad, Vixen began to rely more on her own abilities and less on those granted her by the Tantu Totem. No longer with the Suicide Squad, Mari was later seen with the group known as the Ultramarines. In recent times, she has mostly operated on her own but has continued to assist the League when asked.
