If you watched the trailer and your not interested there isn't much I can tell you. Black lightning doesn't have a strong history in comics as a solo act. I would imagine that they will pull from some of the Superman's family rogues. Like Ameritek which is traditionally a Steel Rogue, or Intergang.

if anything they will use most of the villains from his out siders period since that who he inter acted with most as big bads. and that' is his most popular persiod inthe books and animated with brave inthe bold where bat man iteracted with as street kids slighty older the robin and all the bigest stories came from that period. so him being put with two two creating the out siders is must.


they may use his daughter's for a bit. but if you really want him to be effective both metamorpho and katana need to be apart of his life as they are the closest to him and he works best playing off them and they him and him being scientist pyhsic's professor and a meta huiman. he really needs to be on earth 1 so he can interact with the flash he has more connection there. and just one with metropolis. being born there isn't enough especially which he left often have super hero adventures.

He's practically a C/D-list hero with a lot of leeway when it comes to adapting him. Doesn't really have a rogues gallery. His daughters are the more interesting aspect imo. One daughter went off to join the JSA while the other went off to join The Outsiders.

Yep. I imagine they will borrow some villains from other heroes like Arrow did (mostly Batman villains).

Supergirl is mainly dealing with alien threats and the Superman movies aren't going to be using rogues like Bruno Mannheim and Morgan Edge.

the villain I expect to see are from his out siders period braniac, Dark seid , joker lex and black fire are off the list. they were villain he fough when he was an out sider but it'll be hard to put them in.

the onthe list
Bolt, , Brother Blood << (since Damian darhk is him inthe liveaction verse some time down the road), Brotherhood of Evil, Chang Tzu, Chemo,<<(might not happen) , Deathstroke, Doctor Sivana, Eclipso, Fearsome Five, Felix Faust, Gorilla Grodd <<( possible and more likely ), King Shark, Lady Shiva, Psimon, Sabbac, Saber, Shrapnel, Tattooed Man

Since they seem to be aiming for a "super powered street level" vibe, I imagine they'll steal a double handful of the more "Spider-man rogue" level DC villains. Which works, since most of them get little attention, anyway.
