Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.

No matter how cool they might be, a superhero's really only as good as their most nefarious enemy.

Black Lightning isn't the first television show to prominently feature black superheroes, and it also isn't the first cape series with a predominately black cast. And yet, Black Lightning is telling a very particular story about black lives that's unlike anything else on the CW right now, and it feels very much like it's operating on a different level than most other TV shows based on comic books.

Like all of DC's metahuman superheroes who save the world on the CW every week, Black Lightning has an array of abilities allowing him to fight crime in ways others can't.
