Jefferson Pierce is the superhero Black Lightning, the protector of the city of Freeland. In his civilian life, he is the principal of Garfield High School.

Originally taking up the mantle to avenge the death of his father by ganglord Tobias Whale, he retired from heroing after it ruined his family life. In his nine years of retirement, Whale and his gang, the 100, managed to expand their empire. After they threatened the safety of his school and daughters, Black Lightning returned to the streets.
