Emily Briggs, a.k.a. the Looker, has a long history with the Outsiders. Originally a costumed superhero, Briggs has become a vampire in recent years and that is the incarnation that The CW would be wise to use.
Briggs allows Black Lightning to introduce the concept of magic in its universe. While vampires might not be the hot ticket monster anymore, they still are a staple of genre television. From Buffy the Vampire Slayer to The CW’s long-running The Vampire Diaries and and its spin-off The Originals, these creatures of the night tend to feel right at home on the network.
