10 DC Comics Heroes That Should Appear On ‘Black Lightning’
Black Lightning premieres on the CW this month and fan excitement is high. Since it was announced that Black Lightning would not exist in the Arrowverse, but instead would be part of the multiverse like Supergirl, DC fans have been wondering what that means for other heroes to appear. Arrow started to introduce a larger canvas in season one with the introduction of Huntress and The Flash‘s first season introduced Firestorm so it stands to reason other DC Comics heroes might pop up in Black Lightning sooner rather than later.
This separate universe may open the door for Black Lightning to introduce lesser known DC heroes that don’t quite fit with the Justice League-level of heroes found in the Arrowverse. Black Lightning has a history of this in the comics, being a member of Batman’s the Outsiders, a group of superheroes who don’t quite fit the traditional standards of the superhero community. That should be the standard for what heroes are introduced on Black Lightning.
