I would like to formally invite everyone and anyone to make up supervillains for this series. Since it ran for four years, that presumabley would mean somewhere around 104 episodes. Lots of room for silliness. Zahir 09:53, 30 Sep 2005 (PDT)

based on the style and date, is she supposed to be a batman/wonder woman amalgam ? (just to get the feel straight) --Marc Pasquin 11:18, 30 Sep 2005 (PDT)
She's more like Catwoman as a superhero. But as far as style of t.v. show, Batman plus Wonder Woman would be dead-on (with maybe just a touch of Charlie's Angels). Zahir 12:05, 30 Sep 2005 (PDT)
Sounds almost exactly like Black Canary to me, except with a police officer rather than a bumbling detective. And Catwoman is now an on/off superhero. I propose an villainess called The Black Mocker whose power is mimicry, particularly of Vixen. Did Vixen acquire a Robin/Batgirl/Wonder Girl at any point, perhaps when her ratings were slipping? Does she have one in her own comics who didn't make it to the screen? My proposal: Kit Vixen is Vixen's sometime sidekick in the Vixen comics. A former ballerina, Dorothy Rose witnessed the death of her family and friends at the hands of the diabolical villain [name] and was recruited by Vixen on a mission of revenge. Vixen is less common a companion than OTL's 'birdboy'. On the TV show, Kit Vixen was brought in for the last season as a desperate ploy for ratings.

Hee hee hee. I love it! Shall I add it or do you want to? Zahir 15:56, 2 Oct 2005 (PDT)
Doctor Wax!? Your math is off. If Atlanta Wells turned 21 in 1977, she would have been 16/17 in 1973. If you want to keep her initial appearance at 15, she has to be a guest star at the end the '71-'72 season. Since her costume would be a variant of Vixen's, I propose that the introduction of an underage actress in revealing clothes was not only a bid for ratings, but contributed to the general disapproval.Theophilus88 10:14, 3 Oct 2005 (PDT)
I'm still advocating the idea that the addition of a scantily clad teenager pushed many of the waverers into the anti-Vixen camp. Also, ballerinas tend to be less well-endowed in the chest area, which would make it less likely that Ms. Wells could be successful in soft erotica (unless the standards *there* are different).
Now you can see what she looked like for yourself. Myself, I'm imagining that Louisianne's tastes are more "European" than typically "American." Ms. Wells is a perfect example of a waif, a la Misty Mundae, Lisa Bonet, Winona Ryder etc. *here* (as opposed to the bombshell type a la Raquel Welch, Pamela Anderson, etc.) Zahir 23:45, 3 Oct 2005 (PDT)

Did the Vixen have the PR problems of *here*'s Batman and Robin in terms of homosexual connotations?

I rather think so. Hmmmm. Must do something with that, I think... heh heh heh... Zahir 22:20, 3 Oct 2005 (PDT)

Louisianne Comment

I really don't think that Louisianne has the corner on the Porn industry. I think they might be a little more lax, eg like Six Feet Under, nip/tuck, and others *here*, but yeah, not at all the monopoly of porn. BoArthur 14:41, 4 Oct 2005 (PDT)
