Remember she was Marvel's first choice for Black Panther. They went after Coogler after she turned them down.

She didn't turn them down... Marvel wouldn't give her full control to implement her hotep, batshit crazy "diversity" ideas into Black Panther, and went with Ryan Coogler instead.

Black Lightning Ep.  1 x 09  Thoughts:

 

I’m glad the Black Lightning crew got RockB to make a cameo in the most recent episode.

DAT ASS DOE! (rofl)

 

I still cant believe they had Anissa reveal the secret to Jennifer in only the 9th episode of a first season. If it was another DC CW shows, they would have waited 4 seasons lol.

 

I like this faster paced storytelling.
Maybe bc its only 13 episodes or maybe the showrunners being different than the other DC CW is the cause.

I like Anissa’s costume better than BL. The gold color is nice.

This is the first episode where the mom had a good role in consoling Jennifer instead of “wet blanket”

That's she turned them down. Don't get it twisted.

In reference to what @Darc_Requiem says about Brainiac... 

I recall that at some point that Brainiac is roughly as strong as any other Kryptonian, but is completely offset by his weaknesses: Sensory overload and his implied germophobic tendencies (the latter is inconsistent).

Yeah I have been checking it out. It's solid so far. Agree with you on the set design. They clearly took the Krypton design language from Man of Steel. Even people that didn't like the movie, liked that interpretation of Krypton.

 

Zod (the mother) is one of the Amazon's from Wonder Woman. Sister is jacked. It's like Gabrielle Union hit the weight room. Seg El's arranged bride looks like a young Charlize Theron. I'm sure @Maxx would be a fan. Poor Barristan Selmy got Merc'd in the pilot. He lasted longer in Game of Thrones. I have no clue who the Voice of Rao is. I was thinking Brainiac at first, but he would not take that long destroy Krypton.

Flash is a damn repeat again so I'm getting caught up on another episode of Black Lightning... unfortunately I'm 2 behind though, and the new one is on at 8!  I'll have to catch that one later then, I guess. (*it's the Iris speedster episode...she does look incredible on that one though)

 

The older daughter Anissa has stepped it up in overall presentation...looking quite tasty on recent episodes.  The booty is serious. :sweat: 

 

Regarding the powers - I mentioned to a co-worker today... one nitpick here is how Lightning uses his powers... it doesn't seem all that creative or fancy, which disappoints me.  He's used them to hover around, slow his fall from great heights, and charge up his punches and kicks..and the very obvious use of just zapping people.  I would've assumed he'd have more tricks up his sleeve considering he's been doing the superhero thing for quite a while.

 

Holy shit the dude just jabbed this guy in the neck with black mamba venom!!!  That was awesome, man... hahah "the poison works fast, you aint got all day.." :lol:  sheeeeit, that's one of the more fascinating animals, imo... it's one I think of whenever envisioning what to do with Vixen or anyone with animal mimicry power.....mimic the black mamba and just like that you have a venomous bite that would kill a person in minutes if they don't receive immediate medical attention.

How Black Lightning uses his powers on the show has been a disappointment to me. I'm going to chalk it to budget restraints. They probably don't want to spend the extra money on wire work and awful green screen to give him his hovering.

Black Lightning continues to be the best show on DCTV right now. I hope they keep the shorter seasons. The  other CW have like a half dozen filler episodes a season. Legends is my number two. Legends does dumb shit but it's usually dumb fun.

I don't know what the hell they are thinking on Arrow. This season had potential but it's getting into Season 3 and 4 territory now. Diggle was completely out of character. Terrible episode.

finally got caught up on the latest Black Lightning....  they resolved the "planted drugs" plot quickly than I expected...that seems like something you might draw out for at least 2 episodes, but whatever... Anissa continues to look better each new time I see her... the smile is gorgeous...and that ass is in desperate need of some thorough spankings.

 

Good to see Ms. Vice Principal again....sometimes she looks like a robot, or some kind of alien...but still cute.

Black Lighting is 13 episodes. They aren't going to draw out plot lines. I hope they stay with shorter seasons. This cuts out the need for filler.

Wha...why is this happening!?

Cast decided to do something goofy on the set of the season finale. Legions is just a weird ass show. The season finale gave no fucks and I could not help but laugh at the climax of the episode.
