As of now, no. According to this io9.Gizmodo article, Black Lightning will not be part of the Arrowverse, at this time. “We do not aim to do a five-way crossover,” Pedowitz said. “Black Lightning, at this time, is not part of the Arrowverse. It is a separate situation.” It is unclear what the reasons for the decision were. One possible reason for the ...

According to Doomsday Clock #5, Markovia is an extremely small country in West/Central Europe: It's about twice the size of Luxembourg, its immediate neighbor to the east. The DC Database shows a similar size, though for some reason refers to it as being in "Eastern" Europe despite showing it nestled between France and Luxembourg: Unfortunately I don't ...

According to an article by Media Village, Black Lightning's suit does indeed have a voice changer but I can't seem to track down a reference other than that so that might just be them making assumptions after watching the episodes. However, it’s appearance and functionality in the actual show is much more solid. Cress Williams (pictured at top and above ...

No, Gotham would not be the capital of the US, at least in the post-Crisis Arrowverse which united Black Lightning, the original Arrowverse shows, and Supergirl on the same world. In The Flash, Arrow, and Supergirl there have been references to Washington as the capital, and on The Flash, when they presented a large map showing some locations where things ...

The primary function of the suit is to regulate Black Lightning's power Jefferson Pierce has the ability to draw in electrical energy from his surroundings and release it through his hands. Although he can do this without using special equipment ("The Resurrection", 1x01; "Black Jesus", 1x04), the process is dangerous for him. As Black Lightning, his suit ...

To be honest, I think TV Tropes may be misstating Tobias Whale's dietary preference. He uses veganism as part of his lie about the source of his longevity (actually due to a serum): Henderson: How is it you never seem to age? Tobias: Well, a vegan lifestyle with a little yoga really does work. I keep saying black folks gotta get off of that fried ...

It's never been stated, so no way to know. However, I would point out that large and highly populated is not necessary for the situation described. Obvious example: North Korea. Economically very weak. Population of 25 million, which isn't bad, putting it between Romania and Poland, but, needless to say, support for that population is minimal, with famine ...

I couldn't find a direct textual support for either of these hypotheses, but I think they are at least textually consistent: 1 Jennifer and Anissa could have developed their powers at the same age, but Anissa didn't notice until later. The default state of Jennifer's powers is very obvious. Without even trying she can glow and when she totally loses control ...

Not very far. The evidence suggests that the invasion at the beginning of the third season is extremely limited in scale, and that military control of the US may not even be the goal. As previously mentioned, the Perdi farm is not under the control of the Markovian forces, in spite of the fact that there were roving Markovian forces around the farm. ...

While @Gaultheria gives a nice in universe answer from an out of universe perspective the director, Salim Akil, didn't want to give him a helmet or mask so that you could read his emotions and see his eyes in the scenes. Why not give Jefferson a helmet to protect him from additional damage and also to keep his loved ones from recognizing him? It’s an ...
