Every city in a superhero show is run amok with criminals. It must. Otherwise, why does it need a superhero? But Star City in Arrow has never felt really dangerous. In three seasons of Supergirl, I don’t think National City has any kind of character. And none of the other cities that map the Arrowverse have felt as alive or dangerous as the still-nameless city (is it Garfield?) in Black Lightning.

In “Lawanda: The Book of Hope,” the second episode to the acclaimed newbie superhero series, Black Lightning dazzles with just one action sequence, allowing the rest of the 44-minute run time to make sure viewers know how dangerous Black Lighting’s city is — as well as the man who runs it. While superhero fans may crave more action than Black Lightning is willing to give, hopefully, it’ll be worth it when Jefferson Pierce is finally able to fight waves of One Hundred goons.

Recovering from using his powers for the first time in years, Jefferson Pierce (Cress Williams) insists to his ex-wife Lynn (Christine Adams) that Black Lighting isn’t back. But the ruthless murder of a former student, a mother to a girl enslaved by the One Hundred’s sex trafficking operation, compels Pierce to again suit up and take out Lala, a One Hundred general he presumes to sit at the top. Little does Pierce know is that the true mastermind, Tobias Whale, is getting irritated by his comeback.

One can already wager Black Lightning and Tobias Whale will throw down in the season finale climax. Because rogue metahumans and the League of Assassins are nowhere near Black Lightning, Tobias Whale (Krondon) is truly the only real threat to Black Lightning and anyone else. So far.

But Black Lightning will need to make Tobias Whale feel more like an imminent danger than just an immoral criminal. In the comics, Tobias Whale was a 400-plus pound gang boss, not unlike the Kingpin. But the average-shaped Krondon doesn’t fill the camera’s frame the way Vincent D’Onofrio does in Daredevil. It feels like an uneven fight, Black Lightning against Tobias: One can shoot electricity out of his hands, the other has a harpoon. Either Black Lightning will have to give Tobias something extra to make him a real monster, or the show must bank on Krondon’s intense, scary performances and allow that to define Tobias the way Mahershala Ali with Cottonmouth in Luke Cage.

At the end of this week’s episode, viewers witnessed the full extent of Tobias Whale’s grip on the city: He murders Lala while Lala is in police custody. That just shows how a whole city is at the mercy to one gang and their gang boss. It’s almost too real for a superhero whose costume looks like it runs on AA batteries, and for that, Tobias feels out of place. But Black Lightning, in a city as dangerous as we’ve seen it, is right where he needs to be.

Black Lightning airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. Eastern on The CW.

One of the latest challenges to hit Fortnite: Battle Royale requires a steady aim and lightning fast reflexes if you want to succeed at the shooting galleries in this Week 4 challenge, though you’ll have to find them first. Less serious dancing is reserved for a totally different challenge this week.

The Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 6 Hunting Party Challenge continues, and much like Week 3, the focus of the new secret loading screen is Fable, the character that looks like a badass Little Red Riding Hood. We’ve got all the details on how to solve this new loading screen puzzle and the secret this week, but just like in Week 2, there’s a secret banner instead of a battle star.

Gone are the days of “search between” and “treasure maps,” because Fortnite: Battle Royale’s location-based challenges these days involve multiple steps and dancing on top of random landmarks. So where can players dance on top of a Clock Tower, a Pink Tree, and a Porcelain Throne?

Fortnite Season 6, Week 4 kicked off Thursday morning, and with it came the typical seven new challenges. This week, however, they’re all fairly difficult, or otherwise just involve a lot of work. The fifth challenge initially just reads “Dance on top of a Clock Towers,” but it’s essentially one of the multi-stage challenges that we’ve seen before. This time around, however, it’s a bit misleading because it doesn’t actually say “Stage 1” in the title.

With less than two weeks before Halloween, Epic Games is starting to get a little bit more festive with a new Fortnite: Battle Royale Challenge in Week 4. “Ring the doorbell of a house with an opponent inside in different matches” is a very wordy way of telling players to go trick-or-treating.

Rumor has it Nintendo is teaming up with Square Enix to bring another new character to the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate roster. Leaks have been few and far between (possibly because the Final Fantasy developer is doing its best to keep the secret), but new information may have finally confirmed exactly which new Square Enix character is coming to Smash Bros. Ultimate.
