Discussion in 'Black Lightning' started by Maze, Sep 1, 2016.
Someone mentioned in another thread that he wishes for a Superman show starring Tyler Hoechlin, and I remembered how every CW show of the modern era of Flarrow stuff (save for maybe, the Legends) there is a council of sidekicks.
What does Black Lightning's support group consist of?
He has Gambi who's was there for him since he was a kid after his father was murdered. Gambi helped him learn about his powers and gave him the suits he's had.
Outside of that he has his family. His (ex)wife is a doctor so she helps with his injuries sometimes. His daughters have just now started manifesting their powers with the eldest actually being a superhero. We don't know if they'll allow the younger one to be a superhero.
Sounds like an improvement compared to the other three not team-up shows.
Yeah, it's not like because everyone is in on the secret, they're now part of the team. And it doesn't feel like so many people given that for now it's just BL and Thunder who go out on the streets.
I hope Season 2 gives us a full flashback episode of the younger Black Lightning with the old super-suit.
I quite like a series where people are aware, but never wanna be a part of the team or crusade.
Unlike Buffy; every human wanted to play a part. Even Xander (who could have died in any episode). Though there was Oz. He helped where he could, but was happy simply touring with his band.
