First Look At 'Legends of Tomorrow's' New Vixen

Legends of Tomorrow showrunners originally wanted Mari McCabe (Megalyn E.K.) for the show's sophomore season but scheduling conflicts prevented E.K. from reprising the role.  

So what was the solution?  A storyline was developed to introduce McCabe's grandmother Amaya Jiwe (Maisie Richardson-Sellers), a Justice Society of America member and previous wielder of the Tantu Totem - the mystical artifact that allows its holder to tap into the abilities of any animal.  

Though she couldn't commit to a full-blown supporting role, Megalyn did state that she'll be returning to voice season 2 of the CW seed animated Vixen series and didn't rule out a guest spot on LoT. Given the time travel angle of the show, what are the odds McCabe and a young-Jiwe meet?
