    Wearing a helmet offers very little protection from bullets to the head.

    Maybe they are the Southern Klingons from the dirty south of Klingon.

    Or Spock bought something else with him from the other universe.

    You had me at Deny Cowans is drawing it.

    And cue the trolls who will scream why? Nobody asked for this. Yeah and despite folks crying about too many Marvel events-that no one asked for-they seem to be selling very well.

    Avery's Hawk was so black he makes Coulter's Luke Cage look like Ribeiro's Carlton from Fresh Prince.

    Man, I didn't realize Black Lighting was that ruthless! Using enemies as human shields, going for head shots, shooting fleeing opponents, and tossing helpless ones off terraces! I haven't flinched that much during a CW show since the first season of Arrow. Don't get me wrong, I like that the trailer shows that BL doesn't take crap, but I do think it would feel weird if he's always in 'Punisher mode' when he's got the costume on.
    I didnít stand a chance. This girl had a grin like a razor,
    and the confidence of a shark in a swimming lane.
    If she said to jump, Iíd ask how high? And how far to fall?
    It wasnít because she was pretty; it was because she was a killer.
    And you just canít say no to a killer.

    The goggles and the possible manipulation of magnetism seems to be drawing from Static. Which reminds me, as that web show still coming out?

    Most superhero battles are pretty sanitized given the amount of damage that would ensue. Even this looks tame compared to what would realistically happen. Him being excessivley brutal will probably be criticised in universe like Ollie.

    At this point, barely. Joke was on us I guess. Maybe now that DC has a working blueprint for a 'Rebirth' type event they can make good on Milestone 2.0? Huh, huh, yea me neither.

    So much yes. Last one I promise. Yea, 'we' probably can't pull this type scene on TV anymore.

    As far as the BL trailer, IDK, loved seeing all the faces of color foremost. Thought it was kind of the CW not to close the trailer with it's logo in graffiti or a shot of a ragtime signing frog. Seems there is a lot of tech in his suit, I wonder will there be a 'Lighting Team' effort, complete with a sassy wise-ass computer expert and a hovering overly cautious bff like the rest of the effing CW capes. Personally I don't even care it's not connected but we know that won't last.

    I do dig the amount of cannon that their seems to be. Hope that the Pierce character does his share of principaling or the legacy of it in the show over just electrocuting young black gang-bangers every week, even though I know Cdub loves it's salaciousness. It's a mid-season due to debut in early 2018. My-my, Black Panther on the big screen and Black Lighting on TV, gonna be some tasty tears from the fanboys in early '18.
    Beefing up the old home security, huh?
    You bet yer ass.
