    Because this si exactly what CW needs, another TV show. How about canceling Legends, Supernatural, Grim Dark Archie, The Originals, and giving iZombie a full season again before they sign on another comic book show?

    The shows ratings speck for themselves. If iZombie isn't pulling in the viewers than it's not gonna get a full season or even another season.

    No, iZombie second season got worse ratings than Supernatural season 11. It lost half it's audience in the second season, that's why it went right back to 13 episodes and starting in April.

    The costume itself looks good, but the goggles are a tad ridiculus. As for this show's place in the DC-TV universe... I'm kinda hoping it'll take place on the same Earth as Supergirl.

    So, Arrow but with Oliver wearing the ATOM suit? Pass.

    I don't love the suit (though I appreciate how they added both yellow and blue to the lit-up bolts), but I'm interested...

    gonna give it a try, its cw, so there's gonna be needless drama, but that's expected from these shows, looks better then Arrow, Supergirl and Legends though.

    How did that look anything like Arrow? And BL has the powers not the suit. The shows seems more grounded than Arrow since it's dealing with family, seeming police harassment, and gang violence.

    Looks like we will get a flash back variation of this costume
    [​IMG]
    Wonder if they will have his original look
    [​IMG]

    His daughters in the comics eventually became thunder and lightning
    Thunder was an member of the outsiders under Nightwing
    Lightning was a JSA member

    Black Lightning was a founding member of the original Outsider and severed on most versions of the team.

    Looks interesting, so I'll definitely check out the first season. Should be interesting to see how this fits into the DC-TV multiverse.

    Being grounded, while dealing with family and gang violence was exactly what Arrow season 1 did and I honestly didn't care much for it. Season two is where the show really shone.
