Okay, please tell me you read the first issue of Black Lightning Year One.
It can be a little hard to follow in places; I always get confused when I get thrown lots of relatives and supporting characters and people without easy to identify spandex costumes all at once. That's why I avoid parties. Most parties.
But it's a valiant effort to take pull together all the bits of BL's backstory into a sensible narrative. You know, Peter Gambi, the apparent power internalization, the wife and kids no one ever mentioned, the very aggressive timeline of accomplishment that lets him be a former Olympic athlete/ crusading school reformer/ superhero/ potential Cabinet appointee.
What did you think?
