China Anne McClain Suits Up As Lightning in New Poster for 'Black Lightning'

China Anne McClain is suited up and looking so fierce as Lightning!

As the youngest daughter of Black Lightning (Cress Williams) on the series of the same name, her superhero persona was definitely a long time in the making.

In the first season, Jennifer’s sister Anissa (Nafessa Williams) suited up as Thunder.

“She [Anissa] knows who she is at this point at this point in her life and she’s comfortable with that, but Jennifer is still trying to figure that out,” China recently shared in an interview about Jennifer’s struggles this season. “So to have this happen to her is a huge deal and she feels kind of an alien on Earth.

Nafessa Williams Dishes On How Anissa Embraces The Superhero Life in 'Black Lightning's Season 2

Nafessa Williams Dishes On How Anissa Embraces The Superhero Life in 'Black Lightning's Season 2

Anissa (Nafessa Williams) finds a load of cash in this new still from the season two premiere of Black Lightning.

Speaking with Yahoo, Nafessa opened up about what the new season will bring for Anissa.

“Anissa is definitely taking it to the next level; she now understands her powers, she feels confident navigating the superhero world without her father, and she feels fully confident and able to do it on her own,” she says.

Nafessa adds that “Season 1 was a little more of her development and just trying to understand, ‘OK, as a superhero, how does this work? How do I develop my skills? How do I get the best training?’ So she’s really figured all of that out, and she’s really able to get out and save her people on a whole other level.”

And what about Anissa’s love life?

“I am hoping to see more of her love life this season,” Nafessa says. “We just started filming and I don’t get the scripts too far ahead of time, but before she was really focused on the development of her powers and she really didn’t have much time for a love life.”

Black Lightning premieres TONIGHT, Tuesday, October 9th @ 9PM ET/PT on The CW.
