The CW has been killing it lately with a host of superhero shows based on DC Comics! From their hit series like Arrow and The Flash to acquiring hits like Supergirl. They now are adding a little more diversity to their line up with the Milestone Comics original, Black Lightning. Milestone is known for introducing characters like Static and Icon.

The series follows the titular character played by Cress Williams as a retired superhero who gives back by becoming a teacher and raising two daughters. However, this is short-lived as trouble seems to find it’s way back into his life.

However, Black Lightning will not be a part of the same universe as the other DC comics television shows. But could this leave open opportunity to introduce more Milestone Characters?
