Putting his life on the line to help his city eventually took a toll on him and his family, so he left his days as a masked superhero behind.
Now nearly 10 years later, crime and corruption are on the rise in his community thanks to a local gang known as The One Hundred. With things only getting worse, its time for Black Lightning to return for the sake of his family and the soul of his city.
