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

and let it be known

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!
