Legends of Tomorrow: Here's who's playing new villain Kuasa
Legends of Tomorrow‘s new villain is going to hit very close to home next season.
In a blink-and-you’d-miss-it appearance during the Comic-Con trailer, it was revealed that one of the new villains coming in season 3 is Kuasa, the sister of Mari McCabe, a.k.a. Megalyn E.K.’s version of Vixen. For those keeping track, Kuasa is also the granddaughter of Maisie Richardson Sellers’ version of Vixen, Amaya. EW can confirm that Quantico and The Originals alum Tracy Ifeachor will take on the role.
Kuasa first appeared in the Arrowverse on the CW Seed animated series Vixen, where the character was voiced by Anika Noni Rose. A former guardian of the Anansi Totem that gives Vixen her powers, Kuasa became a villain in trying to get the totem back from Mari. However, she ultimately died fighting alongside Mari — as well as Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), so hopefully that’ll be addressed on Legends.

“We’re really excited about that,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim said of the character at Comic-Con. “We’re looking forward to the inevitable confrontation between Maisie’s character and her granddaughter.”
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow returns Tuesday, Oct. 10 at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
