Thunder and Lightning

and let it be known

Even Superheroes get Sick Days in a New Thunder and Lightning DC Nation Short

I know lots of folks were excited to see Amethyst (of Gemworld, natch) make her television debut, but Thunder and Lightning, the two super-powered daughters of Black Lightning, also started their own series of shorts at the same time. One particular nod to fans of the characters appeared in their first video (you can just see it in the best quality recording of it I could find on YouTube): Thunder’s using her ever-present cellphone to text “Grace,” in a likely reference to Grace Choi, the half-Amazonian superhero that she grows up to fall in love with.

Thunder and Lightning return this weekend with another short. You can check out the preview above!

Meet Thunder and Lightning: DC Nations’ Newest Sister Superheroes! [VIDEO]

I can understand if some of you aren’t familiar with Thunder and Lightning, the superhero daughters of DC Comics’ Black Lightning. They aren’t the most well-known superheroes and they don’t exist (so far) in the New 52 but they are pretty swell gals. Here’s a clip from an upcoming short on Cartoon Network’s DC Nation programming block with the two acting like sisters do. Interesting tidbit Sue from DC Women Kicking Ass pointed out: this clip includes mention of Grace Choi. Grace was a member of The Outsiders as well as Thunder’s girlfriend in the comics. If you stop the video on Thunder’s cell phone (or click over to see a screenshot at DCWKA) you’ll see the two are at least friends in this animated universe.
