The excitement of meeting the CW’s newest superhero Black Lightning just reached another level. On January 16th, we will meet the titular hero and his family, and while it has been revealed that Jefferson Pierce’s daughters have metahuman abilities as he does, it has now been confirmed that we will meet one of these alter egos in the first season.
The CW has released an image of the eldest daughter Anissa Pierce a.k.a. Thunder for eager fans to get an early glance at her superhero look.
Like her father, her day job is working at the local high school- saving lives through education, but Anissa’s love of her community and her family will call her to use her abilities to fight crime. Though there hasn’t been any information leaked about what powers Thunder will possess, viewers can be sure she will be a force to be reckoned with.
Father-daughter crime fighting duo? Yeah, I’m for it! You?
Black Lightning will premier January 16th on the CW at 8PM CT/9PM ET.
