McClain is best known for her role as Jazmine Payne in Tyler Perry’s House of Payne; she recently finished filming the Lionsgate picture Brother’s Blood. The picture shows Anissa Pierce (Nafessa Williams) in costume as Thunder. Nafessa Williams (Code Black) will play the elder Pierce daughter, Anissa Pierce, who is described as a twenty-something daughter who balances medical school with teaching part-time at her father’s school. The CW is set to premiere the new comic book-inspired series Black Lightning on January 16, 2018. The superhero series stars Cress Williams as Jefferson Pierce/Black Lightning, with China Anne McClain playing his youngest daughter, Jennifer, and Nafessa Williams starring as his oldest daughter, Anissa. Cress Williams will play Black Lightning, CW’s next DCTV hero. 0048b.jpg — Pictured (L-R): Nafessa Williams as Thunder, Cress Williams as Black Lightning and China Anne McClain as Lightning — Photo: Bob Mahoney/The CW — © 2020 The CW Network, LLC.

Anissa is the older daughter of Jefferson Pierce a.k.a. His oldest daughter, Anissa is also the super hero known as Thunder who’s able to drastically increase her density, blackbird black lightning giving her invulnerability and super strength. Confirming what most people expected, we now know that the characters Thunder and Lightning will have superpowers on the upcoming CW series, Black Lightning. Black Lightning may have come back to rescue his daughters, but in the process he found a renewed purpose, which is to give the people of Freeland hope, even if some of them are currently trying to drop air conditioners on his head. I do have a question about the stickers – do you still have the website where you found them? In the comics, Black Lightning’s daughters eventually don the cape and cowl themselves, becoming heroes known as Thunder and Lightning; they have battled foes alongside Superman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern. Jennifer became very fond of the members of the Justice Society of America, especially Jakeem Thunder. Jennifer looks amazing! Fans will get to see her take action in the new suit when Black Lightning returns following the midseason hiatus. It’s unclear if we’ll see Black Lightning’s daughters suit up in the series, or if it will focus more on Pierce’s journey back to the streets.
Meanwhile, if you preferred the DPS side of things, you’re going to have a bit more adaptation to do. Meanwhile, Marvin Jones III and Charlbi Dean Kriek are tapped as villains Tobias Whale and Syonide, respectively.

She discovered comics thanks to the plethora of movies and television she grew up with, like Batman: The Animated Series, Spider-Man, the original X-Men film trilogy, X-Men: Evolution and Justice League Unlimited. She got arrested and while Jeff bailed her out, he was more concerened for what could actually happen to her if the wrong officer crossed her path.
Other audience members got a kick out of Mattea Conforti, the super-perky actress who played Anna as a young girl at Saturday night’s performance. The newly-released photo also reveals that Thunder is the alter ego of Anissa Pierce, who is portrayed by Nafessa Williams. Occasionally, the rumble of thunder and bright streaks of white lightning will cut across the sky. If the show is picked up to series, it will already have a one-up costume-wise on some of these other DC superheroes who look nothing like their comic book counterparts. Boomkins should look into a Telekinetic-specced Jedi Sage or a Lightning-specced Sith Sorcerer, which combine Force-based long-range attacks with a healthy smattering of heals and protective spells. Rather than a full cowl, his headpiece leaves the top open to expose his hair, while a set of goggles adds a new functional look. On top of all that is an expanded selection of WiFi connectivity options. Jefferson is trying to exert some control, and show that Malik has options. Malik shows up to the class, of which he’s the only student, and immediately finds something in Jefferson’s mantra. A lot of the other shows have been led through the view of black women, so it’s time to place the black male back and give him a voice at the table.
