“Origin” Trailer for Black Lightning on The CW Jan 16, 2018

A new trailer has been released for “Black Lightning” - a new DC comicbook character set to join The CW family of superhero-shows, premiering Tuesday, January 16 at 9/8c! Pretty interesting to see a new superhero with “powers”, as opposed to “non-super-powered martial-arts combatant”, coming in shortly after the debut of “The Ray” in “Crisis on Earth-X”.

About BLACK LIGHTNING: "Jefferson Pierce is a man wrestling with a secret. Nine years ago, Pierce was gifted with the superhuman power to harness and control electricity, which he used to keep his hometown streets safe as the masked vigilante Black Lightning. However, after too many nights with his life and his family on the line, he left his Super Hero days behind. Almost a decade later, Pierce’s crime-fighting days are long behind him…or so he thought. But with crime and corruption spreading like wildfire, Black Lightning returns — to save not only his family, but also the soul of his community."
