Following a slew of set and minifigure announcements, LEGO has revealed the next San Diego Comic-Con 2018 Exclusive minifigure: DC's Black Lightning!
Black Lightning, born Jefferson Pierce, is one of DC Comics' first African-American superheroes. Originally an accomplished Olympic decathlete, Pierce retired to his home in the Suicide Slum to become a high school principal. After his father's murder and the emergence of the 100 gang, Pierce puts on the superhero mantle, becoming Black Lightning in order to save Suicide Slum from the corruption and crime that threatens to tear it apart. In the live-action series, Black Lightning is played by actor Cress Williams.
This is the first time that the Black Lightning character is adapted in minifigure form. The hair piece and face printing accurately capture the character's goggles and beard, with two eye-catching bolts of lightning lining down the torso and detailed leg printing on the figure.
