BTW, when is someone going to add Vixen to the Supermanica? I know very little about her, I "discovered" her when searching for info on Black Lightning. She also was going to be the 1st black female superhero to get her own book before it was cancelled.  So DC made her part of the world of Superman.

Issues she appeared in:

Action Comics #521, July 1981 "The Deadly Rampage of the Lady Fox!"
Character appearances:
Superman; Clark Kent; Lana Lang; Morgan Edge; The Vixen (intro, guest star); Mule (villain)

DC Comics Presents #68, April 1984 "Destiny's Children!"
Character appearances:
Superman; Vixen; Admiral Cerebrus (intro, villain)

After that she appeared in many Justice League comics until this every day. I belive she also appeared in the Cartoon as well. Sure, she was a stereotype like every other black hero created in those days, but she is still worth nothing.
