Cyborg, Vixen, and Zatanna opposed a new villain named Mephitic at a toxic waste site in Detroit. He claimed it was a little trial run with his power so that he could reach his true potential. Zatanna passed out from Mephitic's fumes and Cyborg suddenly lost control of his body and started shooting at Vixen. She flew around and dodged his blasts. Mephitic took out a pen and notepad and wrote down notes about how each of them reacted to his power of suggestion. He speculated Vixen was invulnerable to it. That night, Vixen took part in a fashion show. Elle, her girlfriend, was in the audience. Batman hailed Vixen on comms while she was on the runway. Batman warned her intel led him to believe Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy were heading to Detroit. He speculated they could be partnering with Mephitic in Flint and warned her to be careful. After the show, Elle walked out with Vixen and told her she was amazing as always. After they got in their car, Vixen asked the driver to roll up the partition then she activated the power of the giraffe.

Vixen found Harley and Ivy in an alley across the Cedar Evergreen Inn. She admitted Cyborg was right about where they would be. Harley jumped into Ivy's arms. Ivy claimed they were nobody. Vixen complimented Harley's wig and pulled it off. She refused to let them go even though she thought the CEOs deserved it. Vixen switched to kangaroo and kicked Harley. Ivy summoned vines to catch her then blew hypnotic dust on Vixen and commanded her to go home and forget she saw them. To their surprise, Vixen was immune. She thought it was rude and asked Ivy if she brushed her teeth. Ivy made a bat out of vines and gave it to Harley. She charged Vixen again but got grabbed by the throat. Vixen switched to snake and constricted her. Harley joked no one but Ivy choked her the way she liked it. Ivy attacked but Vixen switched to frog and dodged her strikes. Posed against a wall like a spider, Vixen asked what their plans with Mephitic were. Ivy was confused and stated they didn't know the douche and came to beat him up.

A stampede of zoo animals approached them. Ivy realized her pheromones mixed with Vixen's animal spirits and attracted all animals. Vixen switched to skunk and sprayed the area to disperse them. Ivy grabbed Harley and rose out of the stink bomb with a vine. Harley was horrified. Vixen retorted it was what they deserved. It made the viral clip of the day on the news. The escaped zoo animals began crowding around Vixen. She hailed Cyborg on comms and requested his and Zatanna's help, along with animal rescue. Cyborg informed her Zatanna was finishing up a show and would meet them at the location. Vixen held a sheep on her shoulders and chased after a rabbit. Before she could finish her thoughts, Cyborg suddenly boomed in with animal rescue. Zatanna teleported to them and was disgusted by the smell. Cyborg also wanted to know what it was since it was now permanently embedded in his memory banks.

Vixen admitted it was her and explained what she did and noted it was a little petty. Zatanna thought it was more than a little. She cast a backwards spell to get the smell away but there was still a funk on Vixen. Vixen awkwardly thanked her. Zatanna suggested a bubble bath and a bottle of Merlot. Cyborg shifted the focus to getting the animals back into their cages. Vixen realized she was not going to live this down. Zatanna asked about Harley and Ivy but Cyborg believed it was only a matter of time before they ran into the duo again. Zatanna noted they were still trying to figure out how to deal with Mephitic. Cyborg joked Vixen was running an adoption agency. She took on the powers of a bird and flew off to go freshen up before returning to headquarters. Ivy realized she needed Vixen's help after Harley was kidnapped by Mephitic. Ivy sent out some weeds who found Vixen's place at Love Street and Laurel Drive. Ivy rang the doorbell. Vixen came down in a robe annoyed with an unexpected visitor. Her demeanor didn't change once she found out the visitor was Ivy.

Ivy swore she didn't come to fight and only needed her help to rescue Harley from Mephitic. Vixen didn't see how that was her problem. Ivy figured she would want to save someone and bring down Detroit's newest villain all on her own then offered the antidote to her current dilemma. Vixen was impressed with the manipulation and asked what she wanted her help for but warned if at any point she got uncomfortable with Ivy in her home, she would invoke a hippo and tear her apart like a watermelon. As a sign of good faith, Ivy gave her the antidote first. Elle came down the stairs and asked if everything was okay. Ivy apologized for interrupting. Elle told her to wait and emphasized she really wanted Vixen to have the antidote so animals would stop hassling her. Vixen told her not to start or she would make her tap out again then revealed she already took the antidote. Elle realized she missed getting to see them make out. Ivy broke out in tears and explained how she got in an argument with Harley, Harley went to a strip club, and Mephitic kidnapped her.

Vixen wondered why Mephitic was so fascinated with her in the first place. Ivy had no clue and admitted she came to Detroit with something to prove after he called her out on TV. Vixen deduced she decided to stand up for herself instead of ignoring a newbie villain's callout all because she was struggling with her ex-fiance leaving her at the altar and now her girlfriend was kidnapped and she wanted her help. Elle couldn't imagine life without Vixen just like Ivy couldn't imagine a life without Harley and implored Vixen to help Ivy. They took an elevator to Vixen's walk-in closet. Ivy was amazed. Elle noted accessibility mattered. Vixen knew Ivy was damn lucky she would do anything Elle asked her to do. Ivy was floored by Vixen's footwear alone. She thanked Elle for fighting for her. Elle told her queers had to stick together. Vixen didn't think she had anything in Ivy's side but they'd figure it out. Elle joked that was because Vixen's butt was getting bigger. Ivy was moved by their loving, fun, and non-toxic dynamic and wanted to change her ways and open up more.

Vixen couldn't find any of her her super suits. Elle asked her if she dropped them off at the cleaners the week before like she asked. Vixen didn't remember to do that. Elle had a back up but Vixen was horrified. With no other choice, she donned her first super suit and invoked the elephant on her roof. After 10 minutes, Vixen got a fix on Mephitic's location then informed Ivy after Mephitic was defeated and Harley was saved, she was going to be arrested for what she did to the CEOs. Ivy thought that was fair. Using a vine as a swing, Vixen airlifted Ivy to Mephitic's warehouse. Vixen wanted to come up with a plan but there was less than fifteen minutes left and she just wanted to bust in and fight. Vixen disagreed. Ivy thanked her for the help and decided to go in alone. Vixen asked her to do just one thing. Ivy sent one of the weeds to search for a way in then sent a text asking Livewire for help. Vixen assumed Ivy's plan would go sideways and came up with her own plan.

Vixen soon crashed through the skylight of Mephitic's warehouse and vowed he was heading to A.R.G.U.S. soon enough. Zatanna teleported into the warehouse and advised Livewire to take cover. Vixen invoked snake and constricted Mephitic while Zatanna cast a backwards spell designed to wash and scrub Mephitic clean. Vixen revealed she heard Ivy's apology and she could empathize with letting someone in after being hurt. Since her girlfriend Elle wouldn't forgive her for arresting them, Vixen let them go but they both owed her for it. She invoked cheetah and sped off.
