[ # ] Black Lightning strikes The CW
January 16th, 2018 under DC Comics

9 years ago, Jefferson Pierce (Cress Williams) ceased being Black Lightning, but tonight at 9p on The CW he is back.

For almost a decade Pierce has lived a quiet life as the principal of Garfield High, where his youngest daughter Jennifer (China Anne McClain) is taking classes. He gave up his vigilante life for Jennifer and her older sister, Anissa (Nafessa Williams); but when one of them gets in trouble with The 100 Gang he comes out of retirement. He tells his ex-wife Lynn (Christine Adams), he is only doing it to get rid of the gang members who are threatening his family. But once he is back, it sets off a spark in him that nothing will be able to extinguish.

Now he is back to doing what he does best and that is making the city safe again. This time, hopefully he will be able to capture his #1 enemy Tobias (Marvin “Krondon” Jones III) before he destroys Black Lightning and their city.

Black Lightning is not like the other DC Comics shows on The CW. It is much darker and more grounded in real life with a little superhero thrown into the mix. It is as intense as a powerful rain storm that keeps you pumped up until you hear that last rain drop hit the window. Something that is perfect to get you through the rest of work week.

I expect this show to hit out of the park in the ratings tonight. It is the best DC Comics show on the network since Arrow debuted. The one that started it all.
