Black Lightning and Jack of Hearts



Geoff Johns has been hinting at a soon to be revealed new DC TV series, and I hope that it will be the recently rumored Black Lightning.  Jefferson Pierce is long overdue for a live action treatment and I think that he would be a great character to build a series around.  I can definitely see him crossing over into established shows like Arrow as well.

Let me guess: Modok knows Jack recently helped Adam Strange save the world. So, Jack was captured because Modok wants to torture the secret of zeta-beam teleportation out of him.

The theft of Rann's technology being the latter's ultimate AIM. ;-)

So now they're saying this series will be kept separate because it'll be on FOX.

I have high hopes for Black Lightning. As DC's first Black super-hero - it's about time! Maybe somebody saw that there was this Black Panther movie coming out and asked - Hey?! Don't we have a character kinda like that, too?! Hopefully Black Lightning will get the same treatment as Gotham...and maybe they'll find a mutually beneficial plan to integrate him into the Arrowverse.

@Air Dave: Maybe they could do another interdimensional crossover! Although, hopefully, with bad guys more riveting than the Dum-inators.

Nice one! Two classic, yet underrated heroes. JACK OF HEARTS is one of the most challenging characters to draw due to his intricate costume.

Hopefully it Black Lightning can look something like this in live action...

Please, no more crossovers. If Jeff is getting his own character give us time to fall in love with it and the world it lives in first instead of making just another face in an alien fighting crowd.

I thought this was Static at first. BL has had a lot of costumes over the years. I hope they give him one of the ones that is distinctively "Black Lightning".

@Simon Dyer: Don't tell us. Tell Fox and CW! The former is the network that mistakenly thought doing a BONES/SLEEPY HOLLOW crossover would be a nice Halloween treat. And the latter has evidently ignored all complaints about over-relying on crossovers with ARROW!
