s1e1 The Resurrection
January 16, 2018
Jefferson Pierce (Cress Williams) is a man wrestling with a secret. As the father of Anissa (Nafessa Williams) and Jennifer (China Ann McClain), and principal of a charter high school that also serves as a safe-haven for young people in a neighborhood overrun by gang violence, he is a hero in his community. Nine years ago, Pierce was a hero of a different sort. 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, but he left the Superhero days behind. Almost a decade later, Pierce's crime-fighting days are long behind him... or so he thought.

Even though they stole my porn name, I'll still watch it.

I watch every, and I mean every superhero show. Even if it is mediocre (like this was in season 1) I still hang on for dear life hoping it will get better and fortunately, this did get much better in season 2. Now here I am in the first episode of season 3 and I found myself wondering if they have gone back to mediocrity. Fingers crossed.
