So glad we have a middle-aged superhero in the CWverse. I've been neglected the other shows due to them pushing romance in it and making character the total opposite of who they were in the comics.

Kiiiiinda hoping Static Shock gets a cameo of some sort in this.

Also, btw people:
Black Lightning. Static Shock.
Two different people.

Surprised a lot of you don't know that.

man for all the people complaining about static shock. you need to realise they could just as easily add him on this show as a guest. maybe even move him to titans. or perhaps they want to save the character for a movie. either way we got Black Lightning a character not well known meaning they can practically build him to what they want. free creative expression.

You know actually glad we are having a show of black lightning rather than static shock. I honestly don't want a show about a guy who fights crime and has to worry about homework and not telling his family.Now we get an adult superhero who tries to retire and has his family who also has powers. Sign me up

At first I was like "Woah nice, a Black Lightning series!" but what's with the shit VFX though? I've seen youtubers done lightning visual effects way better than these crap.
