Black Lightning may have its titular character leading the charge at the moment, but viewers should keep an eye out for Anissa Pierce (Nafessa Williams) because Thunder is coming.

On Tuesday, Entertainment Weekly published an interview with Williams about playing Anissa and the road to Thunder in which Williams said “She loves going into the community and actually trying to stop crime and fight social injustice. In being a superhero, this is Anissa’s way of saving the world and helping people. I love her strength and the power that she walks in.”

At the end of the pilot episode, Anissa discovers she has powers of her own on the heels of Black Lightning’s return to the city of Freeland. With Anissa, Black Lightning has put the first black lesbian superhero on television, which could create a template for future similar LGBTQ heroes. Anissa is an activist and who aims to be a doctor, so her powers just provide her a new way to help her community. In addition, to being a lesbian and superhero Anissa is a fully realized person, which is not always the case for LGBTQ characters. Take Arrow’s Mister Terrific for example, a character who was introduced alongside his husband. His hero life sent that husband away and now the character has essentially very little life outside of the team, which is a glaring omission during a season that has incorporated Wild Dog’s daughter and the Black Canary’s romantic life.

It looks like Black Lightning will show her journey to understand her powers after being surprised by her strength in the early episodes. “There’s a bit of a struggle she’s going through with understanding [her powers], but once she realizes what’s happening and how they work and where they came from, she’s super excited and ready to go [in] head first. She believes it’s her passion and calling from god, and she walks in it boldly,” she told EW.

Fans of the character can look forward to Anissa suiting up as Thunder and meeting DC hero Grace Choi, who comic book fans will know is part of DC superhero team The Outsiders with Thunder.

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

The Fortnite Season 6 Hunting Party Challenge continues, and much like Week 2, this one’s all bout the new wolf character that’s stalking everyone else. Here’s how to solve the new loading screen puzzle and find that secret star.

Fortnite Season 6, Week 3 began Thursday morning at 9 a.m., and even though hardly anybody has had the time to blaze through all seven of the new challenges, the Hunting Party loading screen leaked days ago. Whenever a player completes all seven challenges in a given week, it unlocks a unique Hunting Party loading screen. In each, there’s a clue hinting at an in-game location where players can them claim a secret, usually either a Banner or Battle Star.

Get your running shoes on because Timed Trials have returned to Fortnite for this Season 6 Week 3 challenge.

Week 3 of Fortnite: Battle Royale’s Season 6 began at 9 a.m. on Thursday, and Timed Trials are included as a Premium Battle Pass Challenge. The specific locations have changed completely from the Timed Trials from Season 5, so, unfortunately, previous maps won’t be worth anything these days.

The latest in the endless string of Avengers 4 fan theories could plug one of the most glaring MCU plot holes since Captain America: The Winter Soldier debuted in 2014.

In case you forgot, the big twist of Winter Soldier is that Hydra hijacked the entire system, and one of the names that’s deemed a threat to the evil organization is Stephen Strange — before he even becomes a sorcerer. So what gives and how does it connect to Avengers 4?

The bad guys are teaming up in the new trailer for Glass. The third movie in M. Night Shyamalan’s original superhero series will culminate as “The Horde” (James McAvoy) and “Mr. Glass” (Samuel L. Jackson) team up to break out of their confinement inside a mental institution.

On Thursday, Universal released the second trailer for Glass, set for release in theaters in January. Aside from the return of McAvoy, Jackson, and Bruce Willis as retired security guard David Dunn, the film introduces Sarah Paulson as Dr. Ellie Staple, a psychiatrist who treats patients who believe they are superhumans (and they’re kind of right).
