Mari McCabe was brought up in foster care before finding out she was born in Africa and escaped with her mother after her village was destroyed by a local warlord. Discovering that the necklace she wears the only link to her past grants her mystical abilities she pledges to protect her new village – Detroit from anyone that would threaten it.

This is a pretty big deal it further establishes the Arrow universe by bringing in a new hero with her own show that may have been missed on the digital network and brings a female superhero of colour into the mainstream on one of the CW’s biggest shows.
