You must defeat Sheng Long to stand a chance.


Black Lightning is nice because it's a different tone than the rest of the shows, which aim at that weird forever-20s WB demographic. Black Lightning is a grown-rear end man in his 40s with an adult daughter, and he's the principal of the local high school. He's a strong and established character by the time we enter the show, there's very little of the angsty finding-myself drama like the other DC stuff.

Yeah so wait hang on what's the general gist on black lightning? poo poo or ok or what? I only got like 15 or so minutes into the pilot and had to go do things then completely forgot about it

Black Lightning was the best superhero show that aired last year.

Watching you sleep.

Butt first, let's
check the feeds.


The nerd in me that loves these shared universes wants Black Lightning to meet Oliver, Barry, and Kara. But I'm also fine with it being its own thing. I'd like to see the grown rear end hero interact with the angsty new generation but I'm also fine with him not.

But there's absolutely no excuse if they don't do a Legends crossover with Black Lightning's first run as a hero. Its just a shame that that would be the 90s instead of the 70s so they don't have excuse to give him an afro.

They managed to give Luke Cage is classic look in a flashback, I'm sure the BL team can come up with something.

I mean Legends could easily like pick him up in the 90s and then take him back to the 70s for some handwavey reason with his dad or something so yeah...

If Legends doesn't eventually give me Cress Williams in an afro wig in the 70s then I'll be sad.
