For four years Black Lightning graced our screens with a generational story about an older superhero and person of color. The series was notable for its grounded storytelling, depicting street level foes for the titular character and showcasing a realistic family dynamic for a series with so much fantasy in its conception. In this episode we talk about the final season of Black Lightning. We discuss the plot, the changed premises, new characters, and the performances. We also discuss the Painkiller pilot, why we think that it didn’t get picked up, and whether we’d like to see more from the character. We also give our opinions on the series’ end and whether it lived up to four seasons of buildup.
In this week’s five-minute controversy we discuss whether Grant Morrison’s comments about an authoritarian Superman have any merit.
