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.

Thor’s electrifying arrival to Infinity War’s climactic battle in Wakanda might’ve just been the most thrilling moment in a movie full of thrilling moments, but it left some fans puzzled. How did Thor, Groot, and Rocket know where to go? Over the weekend, Infinity War’s directors revealed the answer, tying up a small plot hole that, to be honest, didn’t really need to be tied up.

Pretty much every hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe rallied to fight Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War (they lost, but that’s not the point). One hero, though, was totally MIA after a brief bout with the Mad Titan at the start of the movie: the Hulk. Fans assumed the Hulk wouldn’t emerge when Bruce Banner tried to transform because the big green guy was scared of Thanos, but one of the film’s directors says that, actually, the Hulk isn’t a giant baby scaredy cat, thank you very much.

It’s not fair to blame the mustache Henry Cavill had for Mission: Impossible — Fallout for ruining Justice League, mostly because Superman’s weird CGI lip honestly didn’t even crack the top ten of that movie’s problems. But, it turns out that Fallout’s director Chris McQuarrie tried to help Justice League out.

If Nick Fury had the pager needed to contact Captain Marvel this whole time, then why did he wait until the post-credits scene of Avengers: Infinity War to call her? She could’ve been a big help in the Battle of New York or some other catastrophe, so why wait? One new Avengers 4 fan theory posits that Fury knew exactly when he was supposed to call Captain Marvel, and it’s because the Ancient One told him his future.
