Legendary Order


Vixen is a character with truly wonderful legendary upgrades. Her 4th is a great first upgrade, and makes her more than capable of holding her own at Legendary rank 1. Might of the Rhino is likely the one move that will be used in battle more than others. Giving her increased stamina and speed ups help enable her to survive longer and go more often.


Vixen is a Swiss-army knife character with multiple tools in her kit. This makes it easy to slot her into many teams. She works particularly well with Constantine and other bleed friends.

Constantine, Poison Ivy, Chemo, Ares, Killer Frost

Countered By

Hard hitting Physical characters like Deadshot – Hired Gun can make quick work of Vixen’s beefy health pool. Buff purgers like Wonder Girl can make her own stamina gains turn against her and her team as well.

Deadshot – Hired Gun, Wonder Girl, Red Robin, Huntress


Vixen is a truly phenomenal character to have on your team, and the only reason she isn’t spotted more often is because of the relative rarity of obtaining her shards. She’s perfectly viable at L1, but truly shines once she has multiple legendary upgrades.
