Legendary comic book artist Jim Lee and Batman writer Tom King embarked on a multi-day USO tour alongside Nafessa Williams (Black Lighting), Candice Patton (The Flash) and Danielle Panabaker (The Flash) to visit some real life super heroes serving our nation overseas.
Jefferson Pierce (Cress Williams) is a man wrestling with a secret. As the father of two daughters and principal of a charter high school that also serves as a safe-haven for young people in a neighborhood overrun by gang violence, he is a hero in his community. Nine years ago, Pierce was a hero of a different sort. Gifted with the superhuman power to harness and control electricity, he used those powers to keep his hometown streets safe as the masked vigilante Black Lightning.
