Elle is Mari McCabe's current girlfriend, has a fashion line called Hazelle, and wears a prosthetic in place of her right leg. Elle slid into McCabe's DMs to see if she could send her some of her clothing samples. They later met in person when she came fore show in Elle's hometown of Philadelphia and hit it off immediately. Elle asked her out on a date the same night. After a runway show, Elle told her she was amazing as always. After they got in the car, Vixen asked the driver to roll up the partition then she activated the power of the giraffe. Back at Vixen's place, Elle came down the stairs and asked if everything was okay. Poison 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 size 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. In the end, Vixen was too moved by Harley and Ivy's love and let them go as a favor. Plus, Elle would be upset if she arrested them both. After Mephitic's defeat, Detroit saw a surge in new villains. One evening, Elle asked Vixen to be careful in light of recent events. She promised and reassured her she was just performing reconnaissance for Batman and would be incognito the entire time. Elle could not understand why Batman, himself, was not looking into the Wu-San Sisters considering both were adept in martial arts.

Vixen asked her to take a deep breath and again assured her she would be far away from the sisters and they would be unaware of her presence. They kissed. She reminded her she chose to date a super-heroine. Vixen surprised her and revealed she had a last-minute show in Gotham City on the weekend and since she had to debrief Batman anyway, she got them tickets to a live taping of Tawny Talks. Elle called up Poison Ivy with the news and they agreed to hang out. Vixen was surprised she was open to hanging around with them. Elle stated Ivy and Harley Quinn were her friends and she was not going to ignore them because she was dating a hero and pointed out she doesn't approve of Batman but doesn't tell her not to hang around him. Vixen contended that was not the same. Elle countered they were anti-heroes, not villains and asked her to give them a chance. After Vixen left she texted Elle she loved her more. Elle remarked she would never get used to her super moth hearing. She returned home and apologized to Elle for putting her in an awkward position of choosing her friends or her and would be there for Elle. Harley informed them they got a reservation at The Ocelot the next night. The call ended and Vixen reckoned it was time for an "evening swimming lesson."

In Gotham, Elle got curious about a bombed out building. McCabe reminded her anything was possible in Gotham City. Before she left the Rest BnB, McCabe told her she packed her medicated salve just in case of nerve pain. Elle and Ivy talked on the phone. Ivy was concerned about her pain and said it was okay to go out another night. Elle assured her should would go to baseline thanks to her gummies and pain relief cream. McCabe returned with snacks, including Elle's favorite, chocolate pretzels. They watched some Tawny Show then Elle took a nap. McCabe thought it was corny the reservation was under their Harlivy ship name but Elle reminded her about the Vixelle custom shirts and jackets she designed for their ship name. They found Harley and Ivy at the table and made a toast to awkward dates. Elle was happy all heroic and nonheroic ways were put aside and thanked them. Harley declared everything was on her and told them to order whatever they wanted. Elle and McCabe were amused. Harley stopped herself from admitting she stole the money.

Ivy asked Elle how she liked Gotham so far. Elle admitted they hadn't seen much of it yet but asked about a bombed out building a few doors down from the Rest BnB they were renting. Harley and Ivy feigned ignorance about it. Elle teased McCabe for snatching food from her plate. Ivy joked Harley did the same thing but she denied it. After dinner, Ivy presented a gift to Elle, a chronic pain bouquet that would help her with her ails. The date was interrupted by the explosive entrance of White Rabbit. Ivy escorted Elle outside. Outside, a woman also rescued revealed she was the sister of White Rabbit and she was raising funds for a Pakistani charity and her sister meant no harm. To everyone's surprise, the woman and White Rabbit vanished. Elle and McCabe hugged and the latter thanked them for keeping her safe. They went to a Goodielicious for ice cream. Elle thought it was the funnest date she went on and wanted to do it again. A woman was mugged nearby, prompting Harley to emulate Superman. She easily dispatched the mugger. Elle didn't want the night to end. Harley suggested getting some lap dances.

The next day, the first episode of Tawny Talks was taped live. Vixen, Elle, Harley and Ivy were brought out to the stage first. Vixen and Elle's history was discussed first. McCabe stated Elle had an aura that exuded safety, love, compassion, and more. Tawny Young thought that was beautiful but asked her if she hesitated to date someone with one leg and asked when she started dating women in general, bringing up her recent exes B'Wana Beast and Green Lantern John Stewart. McCabe emphasized Elle's disability had no bearing on how much she loved, respected, and supported her and choosing not to date someone disabled kept you from finding love and friendship then she revealed she always liked women but it wasn't anyone's business until she felt ready to disclose. The audience cheered them on. Some time later, Elle returned to Gotham with Vixen to turn over Cassandra Cain to the Bat-Family for two days. Harley Quinn lied to Ivy she was going to a therapy session for Bruce Wayne and went to Vixen's condo instead.

Harley remarked the condo was more than big enough for Giganta to fit inside. Mari McCabe quipped one villain in her house was enough. Elle scolded her. They listened to Harley vent her issues with continuing to lie to Ivy about her heroic exploits and being concerned Ivy was mixing up with dangerous villains. Elle thought that was a lot. Before parting ways, Elle advised Harley to tell Ivy the truth before she finds out on her own. She thanked Vixen for taking Harley. Vixen recalled she could never say no to her.
