Meet The CW's New Superhero Black Lightning in New Trailers

What did you think about the new trailer for Black Lightning?

As of now, Black Lightning is still set to stand apart from the Arrowverse continuity, and have nothing to do with the shared universe that includes Arrow, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow and The Flash. Pierce, who is lying in what looks like a laboratory bed, can be seen groaning in pain in the 7-second video as the lightning runs through his veins.

The biggest change in the new TV series is that it is essentially starting in the middle of Jefferson's story, years after his initial stint as Black Lightning. The 40-second video sees Pierce, who left his crime-fighting days behind a decade ago, once again donning his suit to save not only his family, but also the soul of his community. The Black Lightning character was created by Tony Isabella with Trevor Von Eeden. "You wanted the evil that's out there to have something to fear", a voice narrates over the promo. While scenes of Williams' Black Lightning being involved in intense fights are taking turn to flicker on the screen, the character continues saying, "You wanted to give the people hope".

A new teaser for The CW's forthcoming adaptation of Black Lightning is in, and this time, we're learning a little bit more about Jefferson Pierce (Cress Williams)'s origins as a superhero. and why he eventually decides to come out of retirement. Once again, Jefferson will use his abilities to control electricity to take on the One Hundred, a powerful gang that is led by his nemesis, Tobias Whale (Marvin "Krondon" Jones III).

Black Lightning debuts on Tuesday, January 16th at 9/8c on the CW.
