Another loss the result of the cancellation of DC Comics Teen Titans animated show. Shorts about the DC superhero Black Lightning (voiced by Blair Underwood), and his super-powered daughters Thunder (voiced by Cree Summer) and Lightning (voiced by Masasa Moyo). Thunder and Lightning receive their costumes from Peter Gambi (voiced by Jeff Bennett) in order to help their father fight crime.
I can understand if some of you aren’t familiar with Thunder and Lightning, the superhero daughters of DC Comics’ Black Lightning. They aren’t the most well-known superheroes and they don’t exist (so far) in the New 52 but they are pretty swell gals. Here’s a clip from an upcoming short on Cartoon Network’s DC Nation programming block with the two acting like sisters do. Interesting tidbit Sue from DC Women Kicking Ass pointed out: this clip includes mention of Grace Choi. Grace was a member of The Outsiders as well as Thunder’s girlfriend in the comics. If you stop the video on Thunder’s cell phone (or click over to see a screenshot at DCWKA) you’ll see the two are at least friends in this animated universe.
