The Black Lightning Trailer is Here!



Click on the Headline for the Trailer.

Quote:
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.

Actually doesn't look half bad even though the poster pic leaves a lot to be desired. I was expecting some variant of the Luke Cage vibe but it surprised me.

Loved the soundtrack; whoever CW has picking their music for their shows deserves a raise; they always do a great job matching music and staying pretty current with the mainstream without going too far over.

Is this a comic book character? Is his power 'Storm' style, or 'Iron Man' style (inner/genetic, or suit-driven?). Seems the latter (a suit), but I've never even heard of the character.

Loved the menacing shot of the police at the car window: "The whole city was ready to explode." SMH at the implications of that...

He's a metahuman in current continuity. Looks like he might've originally been tech based way-back-when, but he's been a meta for as long as I've been familiar with him. Trailer makes it look like a bit of both meta and tech.

Have high hopes for this show. Haven't seen a ton of stuff with the character, but he's generally been cool when he shows up in whatever I'm watching/reading. Hoping it doesn't go too Netflix's Luke Cage with more preaching than action, and really, really hoping it leads into Static showing up at some point.
