Black Lightning was a member of the Justice League and the Outsiders.

Growing up in Metropolis' Suicide Slum, Jefferson Pierce was a firsthand witness to the violence and gangs that controlled his neighborhood. After becoming an Olympic gold medalist and graduating college, he returned to help the community, but ran into trouble with a criminal organization called The 100. When they killed one of his students, Jefferson put his latent electricity powers to use as Black Lightning intent on bringing them to justice.
