BLACK LIGHTNING Trailer Teases the Origin of The CW's Newest Superhero

Next year, Black Lightning is bringing the electricity to The CW as the star of the network's fifth DC superhero series. With his community in danger, Pierce decides it's finally time to resurrect Black Lightning and save his city. One of the trailers, titled "Veins Trailer", sees Cress Williams' Pierce getting struck by lightning through his whole body. 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.

Black Lightning was created by Tony Isabella and artist Trevor Von Eeden, and the new series seems to be keeping a lot of the elements from his early comic book days. "You wanted the evil that's out there to have something to fear", a voice narrates over the promo. You wanted to give the people hope. If Black Lightning gets folded into the Arrow-verse like Supergirl, which first premiered on CBS, then we can look forward to an even greater crossover event than last week's delightful "Crisis on Earth-X".

"Black Lightning" follows Jefferson Pierce, a man wrestling with a secret. Gifted with the superhuman power to harness and control electricity, he used those powers to keep his hometown streets safe as the masked vigilante Black Lightning. Nearly a decade later, Pierce's crime-fighting days are long behind him...or so he thought.

The CW has released another short teaser for its upcoming Black Lightning superhero series in the leadup to its January premiere, and it shows the title character, Jefferson Pierce, suiting up to fight another day after years spent in retirement.
