very cool-- I hope this gets picked up for a full season.  Lots of new opportunities for black actors, and hopefully writers and directors as well.

So does Black Lightning have anything in the way of a rogues' gallery?
Was his original comic series mostly human gangsters and the like?

Is this going to be based in "Southside" of Metropolis ("suicide slum"?)

The branch he fought was led by Tobias Whale:

While waiting for the series to drop, here's the first part of a Black Lightning fan film. I hope DC allows them to finish it.
