Reporter Raymond "Ray" Terrill is investigating a group of government scientists who are developing a weapon using light, when he is attacked with a "genetic light bomb" that ends up bestowing him with light-based super powers.
Vixen is based on the DC Character Mari McCabe / Vixen, a costumed superhero crime-fighter with the power to mimic the abilities of any animal that has ever lived on Earth. The series is set in the same fictional universe as Arrow, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow.
Beings with supernatural powers join together to fight against supernatural villains. This team of supernatural beings include John Constantine, Zatanna and Jason Blood also known as the demon Etrigan.
A decade after a tragic mistake, family man Chas and occult investigator John Constantine (voiced by Matt Ryan) set out to cure Chas's daughter Trish from a mysterious supernatural coma. With the help of the mysterious Nightmare Nurse, the influential Queen of Angels, and brutal Aztec God Mictlantecuhtli, the pair just might have a chance at outsmarting the demon Beroul to save Trish's soul. In a world of shadows and dark magic, not everything is what it seems, and there's always a price to pay. The path to redemption is never easy, and if Constantine is to succeed, he must navigate through the dark urban underbelly of Los Angeles, outwit the most cunning spawns of hell, and come face to face with arch-nemesis Nergal - all while battling his own inner demons!
This series is about Constantine, a sorcerer in the DC universe. In this series the main protag accepts a job that results in him delving into the world which our hero Constantine lives in within the world of the DC universe.
This series is different from your typical DC series. there is no "costumed heroes" or "big baddie" but instead demons, angels, and lots of other supernatural stuff. There is also a twist on it, being that you wont find your typical "boo's" and such. Instead you'll see fleshed out characters and an interesting story arc that branches out as each episode unfolds.
Humans are not the focus in this series, instead the focus of the series is on the supernatural aspects of it, like the magic and mythical creatures and such. It's a good series and it's clearly a risk for DC to branch out to such a series that is completely out of the normal formula for them. But it's a risk that was worth taking for them as the quality is superb and the world it's building within the already established universe explains alot more than what the other series did for the supernatural aspect of the DC universe.
If you're a fan of magic and supernatural stuff but still love that DC style, this series is for you. But even if it's not, I'd still suggest watching it. It's pretty good. The biggest fault of this series though is that it's way to short and the episodes end on cliff hangers all the time. It would of been better if they just made this into a movie or even hour long episodes instead of 10 minute long ones.
