Black Lightning Is Coming Out of Retirement In This New Trailer

Black Lightning Is Coming Out of Retirement In This New Trailer
From Gizmodo - December 24, 2017

The Black Lightning TV show premieres in less than a month, and Jefferson Pierce is gearing up for a return to action.

The brief new trailer, courtesy of The CWs YouTube channel, offers a deft impression of the crisis that pushes Black Lightning, who has the power to control electricity, back into the fray after almost a decade out of the vigilante game. His hometown is getting worse, and he wants to help, and even if its dangerous, its worth it. I cant save the world, Pierce tells one character.

But you can save your piece of it, the other character replies. And thats a compelling argument.

Can I just say how much I really dig this premise? The older-hero-coming-out-of-retirement trope is a good one, and Im interested in seeing it play out in a serialized TV format. Plus, it lets the show skip the boring backstory.
