Kimberly Brooks and Jasika Nicole worked as Vixen.

Oh, look. You managed to get all of Vixen's dialogue in Justice League Action within a single clip. :P

I'm still voting Torres, but Megalyn is really good as well.

@D.A.V.E. Yes, I managed to get all of Jasika's lines from one, 10-minute episode into a single clip. That's not at all uncommon for a guest character. :p

I have to agree with Music Meister that there isn't a great performance from Vixen yet.

Cree is probably my favorite here.

I have yet to hear a great performance for Vixen.

Cree is so far the one that stands out the best even if it is just a normal Cree performance.

Megalyn improved in Injustice 2 But is does not stand out much.

The others are even more forgettable.

@Music Meister Speaking of Kimberly Brooks clip, she would actually sound better as Bumblebee instead of Vixen. Infact I'm surprised that hasn't happened sooner.

@Shaun Ince On That Note, Jasika Nicole also sounds like she would be a better fit for Bumblebee.

I like Jasika Nicole the most here. She sounds quite energetic, youthful and feisty in the role. Also, I kinda dig her lisp. Makes her sound even more unique.

Megalyn Echikunwoke sounded good in the Vixen cartoon, but she was better in Injustice. She sounded quite cool and sexy in the role.

Cree Summer also works well in the role. She sounds quite sexy and she has good chemistry with Kevin Michael Richardson's Bwana Beast.

Honestly, Gina Torres doesn't do much for me. Her delivery is kinda flat at times and she doesn't seem all into the role.

Kimberly Brooks is meh.

Kimberly Brooks works well as the younger version of Vixen. Jasika Nicole is alright.

1. Gina Torres got to love her performance in JLU wouldn't mind hearing her reprise the role

2. Megalyn Echikunwoke is good as the character in the cartoon but improves in Injustice 2 also hope we get to see her appear in the Arrowverse again

" I have all the powers of Africa now. From the fox to the elephant, from the spider to the man -- I am the life of Africa -- and I believe in life."

Vixen is An Independent Business Woman with a Magical Talisman and a Kick-Ass Orange Costume.... How can you Not Like her?

Anyway Here are My Top 5 Favourite Vixen Voices:

5. Jasika Nicole
4. Kimberly Brooks
3. Megalyn Echikunwoke ('Injustice 2' Performance Over her Miniseries Performance)
2. Cree Summer
1. Gina Torres

Future VA Suggestions:

Enuka Okuma would be wonderful as Vixen IMO. If She Used a Deeper and More Sultry Version of her Android 18 voice she would work nicely.

Eve Jeffers could also be another Solid fit for Miss McCabe. A Warmer version of Her Major Jones or Talon voices would do the trick in this part

I also Recommend Patina Miller, Ozioma Akagha, Samira Wiley and Mya Harrison.

You can call me crazy. But I find Megalyn soothing. Especially in Injustice 2.

As recognisable as Cree Summer is, she's the only one who I feel, fits the most.

The others don't sound that good. Megalyn sounds inexperienced & Gina Torres doesn't sound all that into it.

JLU has some great castings for the main characters & most of the villains & supporting characters, but this is one of the more questionable castings.

And now I can do a voice compare! :)

Gina Torres. For me, Gina is probably the definitive voice for Mari McCabe as a character. Her suave, sexy tone and jiving attitude really go hand in hand with the dialogue and brings out the character of Mari as both a superhero and a fashion enthusiast.

Cree Summer is, Cree Summer. Not that it's not good or anything, I mean she still pulls off a good performance, but at the same time it is rather obvious a choice, if not straight up typecast, but even if it is typecast, it still works to it's benefit; and as is Cree still does a good job conveying Mari's alluring tone and upbeat attitude.

Megalyn Echikunwoke is... not a bad choice per say, but I feel she doesn't quite have a lot with what's she's given. Mari as she's portrayed in the CW Seed series and even Arrow seems rather cold and brusk to me, why not have her be more enthusiastic and put some real energy to Meg's performance?! I don't know, there's just something about how the character's written in this interpretation that just doesn't click with me.

Over all, Gina is #1 in my book, with Cree in 2nd place and Megalyn in 3rd by default.

BONUS: I know this is another typecast, but I think Rosario Dawson would make an excellent Vixen, perhaps just as good, if not better than Gina Torres; Kimberly Brooks, Danielle Nicolette, Masasa Moyo and Erica Luttrell are also typical first choices that can still be good as well.

For more obscure LA choices, there's always GK Bowes, Cherise Boothe, Denise Boutte, and Yvette Nicole Brown.

As for Vancouver or Dallas actors; there's always Brenda M Crichlow, Evans Johnson or Kenneisha Thompson.

I also think, Estelle could make a good Mari.

@Troodon2 Danielle McRae is another more obscure but also interesting possibility.

@huzaifa_ahmed Or Ayisha Issa. She's another Canadian actress who's done voice over work.

Cree's the only one I thought had the best acting, it might be a little recognizable but I felt she gave a fitting voice.

Gina's okay, some lines don't sound like they were delivered well and a little too soft for my taste.

Megalyn is fine, I'm sure was cast to play her both in voice and live action but she just sounds an average person and clearly is new behind the mic.

Gina is a bit light, but I think the gentle and lighter tone works for what they were going for. She sounds, for lack of a better word, sexy, and I again, I really like the gentle sound she has. Yet at the same time she could sound more aggressive when she needed to be.

I think I prefer Cree a bit more, due to I think her voice is more what I picture when I think of Vixen. She has a good delivery, and I think she sounds very charming and also sounds like she's having a lot of fun here.

I'd say for a future VA, Erica Lutrell

@EPA Deane Average. Really nothing all that standout about it. Her delivery is okay, though a bit bizarre at times.

I think they're both quite well. If I had to choose, I'd pick Gina, but I still think Cree played the character very well.

Ah Vixen, on of my favorite female superheroes. Gina Torres was so awesome in JLU, and Cree was good in BMTBATB. But I think we need a Vixen with a soft African accent. To me, that would complete the character.
