Vixen doesn’t know Huntress well enough to know she doesn’t answer to anyone and once her mind is made up, there’s no talking her out of something. She believes with Brusaw gone, so is his hold over the children and the others. She can live with that.
Huntress and Vixen face incredible odds against the super-heroes and villains. They are also running out of time to prevent the cult children from commiting mass suicide. Huntress has had enough. She turns her attention to a badly wounded Brusaw. Too bad his God isn’t around to tell him she doesn’t bluff.
Brusaw has shown up with the children and various meta-humans. He’s angry feeling his Lord(Brainiac) has forsaken his experiment because he welcomed Huntress into his home and she’s betrayed him, and Vixen turned on him.
He plans to have all his followers commit suicide on his command forcing Huntress hand.
Huntress tires to stop Vixen from hurting herself and is attacked again. She urgently appeals to Mari’s vanity and insist she channel the most stubborn and least cooperative animal in order to break the hold surrounding her. Vixen is eventually able to release herself from the the negative control of Brusaw and become an ally to Huntress.
Vixen pretends to kill Huntress at Brusaw’s command in order to get some time alone with her and ask questions. She can barely remember who she is. Huntress attempts to explain she’s one of the most disgustingly successful models of the past decade. As Vixen, she was JLA member. Somethings slowly come back to her, like she can channel animals abilities and their senses and wisdom. She’s having difficulty shaking the residual effects of being enthralled by Brusaw and hears voices telling her to cut out the sinful animal voices inside her.
Huntress continues to tell Oracle and Black Canary what she’s found. She looses contact with them unaware that Barbara has been attacked by some malign presence via her own computer. She is completely on her own.
Brusaw comes up on her while she’s snooping. He orders Vixen to attack her.
