DC 2099 #6 "Black Lightning"
Not nearly done, but as far as I think I'm going to get this week ...
In my vision of DC 2099, Black Lightning is a man in as much opposition to himself as the elements of the name he has chosen. A brilliant scientist, he sought to create a renewable energy source for all of human kind to use, but discovered a type of energy capable of destroying whatever it touches on a molecular level. Elated at his discovery and frustrated by his failure, he was driven deep into madness as exposure to his creation began to slowly kill him. Now contained in a special suit to help prolong his life and focus his powers, the man that once wanted to give his creation to the world now seeks to take everything from it he can. A villain of unimaginable power, Black Lightning strikes randomly and violently, his only goal is chaos and death.
I know the coloring isn't good on this, amongst other things; will use better quality paper next time.
That aside, I wanted to convey that Black Lightning is using his powers a bit differently, like Green Lantern to an extent; Black Lightning uses the lightning as constructs in addition to the electrical charges.
This is Shadameyer Pierce, a brilliant biochemist and great great grandson of Jefferson Pierce. Unlucky for him, the original Black Lightning's abilities are only passed on to female members of his family tree. After years of research on how to obtain superpowers for himself, he was able to create a suit that harnessed the power of the Speed force. The suit allowed him to control the momentum of objects, gave him super speed, and limited speed related telekenesis.
And go figure only the ladies get all the genetic fun, bonus points on story creativity :)
