Black Lightning: “The Resurrection” Has Begun

What's good everyone! Last night we witness the resurrection of Black Lightning on the CW. The character is a technically part of the Arrowverse brand, but not a part of the universe that the other characters take place in. Which works for me, no worries about crossovers or anything like that, just a solid self-contained storyline. In the series premiere, we are introduced to Jefferson Pierce, his bad-ass daughters and the gang-infested city of Freedland. Black Lightning is here.

The CW’s Black Lightning Casts Its Hero With Another Network Regular

The journey to a live-action Black Lightning series has been meandering. At first, it was going to be a Fox show, but then Fox passed only to have The CW come to the rescue (the fact that CW Golden Boy Greg Berlanti was already Executive Producing probably made that decision easy).

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

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.
