The character of Vixen has made the jump from the comic book page to her own animated web series to the live-action DC TV universe the CW has built around Arrow, Flash and Legends of Tomorrow. After helping Oliver Queen defeat a magic foe, Vixen is joining Legends of Tomorrow - DC's time-traveling superhero team - as they embark on their season 2 mission.

There's been some behind-the-scenes shake-up, as actress Megalyn Echikunwoke - who both voiced the animated version of vixen and played the live-action version - isn't returning to the role. Instead, she's been replaced by actress Maisie Richardson-Sellers, who will portray a different, younger, incarnation of the character.

Since there's a new actress in the role, playing a different version of the character, it only makes sense that Vixen get a new costume for Legends of Tomorrow; and thanks to a season 2 promo poster, we have our first look at it:

Here is the official storyline for season 2:

After the defeat of the immortal villain Vandal Savage and the corrupt Time Masters who colluded with him, a new threat emerges. Dr. Nate Heywood (Nick Zano), an unconventional and charming historian, is thrust into the action upon making a shocking discovery - the Legends are scattered throughout time.

Nate must find a way to rescue season one's beloved team of heroes and rogues, including billionaire inventor Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), who has created an exo-suit with the power to shrink him to miniscule size, as the Atom; Sara Lance (Caity Lotz), the White Canary, a trained assassin; Professor Martin Stein (Victor Garber) and Jefferson "Jax" Jackson (Franz Drameh), who together form the meta-human Firestorm; and Mick Rory (Dominic Purcell), aka Heat Wave, a career criminal. When the Legends encounter the J.S.A (the Justice Society of America, the precursor to DC's Justice League) in the 1940s, Amaya Jiwe (Maisie RichardsonSellers), aka Vixen, joins the team. While the team reunites, a mystery looms - the fate of former captain Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill).

Once reunited, the Legends continue their new mission to protect the timeline from temporal aberrations - unusual changes to history that spawn potentially catastrophic consequences. When Nate, the grandson of J.S.A. member Commander Steel, unexpectedly finds himself with powers, he must overcome his own insecurities and find the hero within himself. Ultimately, the Legends will clash with foes both past and present, to save the world from a mysterious new threat.

Legends of Tomorrow returns this fall on the CW.
