Black Lightning’s back to protect the people of Freeland, and The 42cast is back to give you your weekly dose of awesome entertainment. This week we talk about the first season of this latest DC CW superhero series. As always we talk about the heroes and the villains, but this time we also talk about what makes this series stand out amongst all of the other DC series. We also give our hopes for a second season and get a little schooling in Black Lightning’s comic roots.

This week Mike, James, and Joe join the cast.
