  1. I saw the first episode last night and it turned out to be pretty good, I only hope he’ll be added into Arrow/Flash- Verse within the mid season. Yet, his daughters on having his powers too, plus adding in Static Shock as a fan favorite for the audience, who saw Statics show on Kids WB.

  2. Ive never heard of Black Lightning, Is he supposed to be a old ass variant of Static Shock..? Is Static Shock, Black Lightnings expanded universe lolol..?
