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. It’s difficult for her to deal with.”

Black Lightning is set to return on The CW on Monday, January 21st, 2019 @ 9:00PM ET/PT.

China Anne McClain's Jennifer Is Struggling A Lot With Her Powers in 'Black Lightning' Season 2

Jefferson (Cress Williams) hugs and comforts daughter Jennifer (China Anne McClain) tight in this first look still from the season two premiere of Black Lightning.

In the season two premiere, Jefferson and his family may have survived Tobias’s (Marvin Jones III) attack, but they’re not out of the woods yet. Concerned for the safety of Garfield’s students, the board considers a motion to shut down the school, forcing Jefferson to go to Napier Frank (Robert Townsend) to sway the vote.

Meanwhile, Jennifer is struggling with her powers and her actions have unforeseen repercussions; all while Anissa (Nafessa Williams) finds a new way to give back to Freeland.

Showrunner Salim Akil spoke about Jennifer’s struggles with her newfound powers and he says, “the simple answer to that, and it’s not very complicated, is that she’s afraid of what it means for her future.”

He adds, “Last season, one of the questions she had is, Can I have kids?’ One of the questions she’ll have this year is, ‘If I have sex, will I hurt somebody because I can’t control my powers?’”

“We’ll also deal with the issue of everyone knowing that these ‘pod kids’ exist. There’s gonna be a negative spin on metas. It will be about, ‘Am I hunted? Am I a monster? What am I? I don’t really know what I am.’ It’s hard enough, just being a young woman, and then being a young black woman. Now, having these powers that everybody’s afraid of, she can’t even go to school. So, we’ll deal with it all.”

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