DC FanDome: Hall of Heroes is coming! Celebrate this EPIC GLOBAL EVENT for all things DC. Free for everyone for 24 hours only at DCFanDome.com on August 22!
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.
