Just two week before Black Lightning graces our screen, we have gotten an official look at  Nafessa Williams as Anissa Pierce in full costume as the the heroic Thunder.

Williams also confirmed on Twitter than Thunder would be a lesbian like her comic book counterpart.

We will be curious to see the costume of Jefferson Pierce’s other daughter and if the kids will team up with their dad to fight crime this season.

Black Lightening premieres Jan 16 after The Flash Premiere.
