vixen’s powers often involve her taking on the qualities which are most traditionally associated with certain animals, but i was thinking of some other useful abilities that she could pick up:
cheetah: the power to outgrow a ruff of grey hair
hippo: the power to stave off sunburns by sitting in the water for prolonged periods of time
giraffe: the power of exceptional awkwardness when drinking
lion: the power to KS without reparation (video games!!!)
ostrich: PIMPLY SKIN!
Anyone else got any :D?

[ JLA v4 #11]

"Next to me, Mari’s already slowing down. She thinks it’s because she lost contact with the totem. But she’s not on this team for the totem—or for her animal powers—or even for a bow and arrow.

She’s on this team because she’ll fight. Like Bruce taught Dick. Like Dick taught me. We all fight for different things. But we all still fight.

I’m coming Lian.

Everything we need—it’s all within us.”

Confession: I am sitting here laughing so hard at my own fucking nonsense that I am gonna have to compose myself before writing a rambly artist note.
Will you even look at this.
Okay, so: This was a gag gift, you know it was a gag gift, obviously a very well-thought out one that took some planning, but the person who gave it was apparently unaware that while you can take the man out of Iowa, you cannot take the Iowa out of the man.  Even if you manage to surgically excise every trace of Midwest, you’d STILL have someone who used to wear a purple miniskirt to work.
Last statement here is that if you’re new enough to Hawkeye that you don’t recognise the GOSH I LOVE ARROWS thing, I am going to give you the pleasure of Googe-Image-Searching it yourself.  Enjoy!  You’ve picked the right Avenger to love, you really have.
