Black Lightning is heading into develop
The creation of writer Tony Isabella and artist Trevor Von Eeden in 1977, Black Lightning is one of the first black superheroes in the canon. As Jefferson Pierce, his real name, he hails from Metropolis where he works as head teacher of a high school. Appalled at the criminal enterprises at work in his city, he dons the costume of his superhero alter ego to fight for truth, justice and the American way.
According to Deadline, Berlanti has teamed up with The Game and Being Mary Jane's creators Mara Brock Akil and husband Salim Akil to nut out a slightly different storyline. CW’s take, should it come together, will see both his daughter and a star student become embroiled in that shady netherworld. With the stakes high, Pierce is forced to become Black Lightning again.
Expect the influential producer to find a home for this one. He’s also got Archie Comics adaptation Riverdale landing on CW early next year.
