* FountainOfExpies: Ever noticed how it seems like there are an awful lot of African-American superheroes with electricity powers? That's because most of them are either directly related to Black Lightning (his daughter Lightning) or are CaptainErsatz versions of him ([[WesternAnimation/SuperFriends Black Vulcan]], [[WesternAnimation/StaticShock Soul Power]]) or deliberate [[ShoutOut Shout Outs]] (ComicBook/{{Static}}, [[{{ComicBook/Irredeemable}} Volt]]). An episode of ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' even featured [[{{Expy}} Expies]] of the Superfriends, making the character Juice (the Black Vulcan equivalent) an Expy of an Expy.

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: The reason why the upcoming show isn't part of the Franchise/ArrowVerse despite having Creator/GregBerlanti as Executive Producer and airing on the CW. It's filmed in Atlanta while the other shows are filmed in Vancouver -- it's not feasible to do a crossover at the moment.

* ExecutiveMeddling: Apparently, this is why he didn't appear outside of comics for a long time (and why there was a FountainOfExpies). However, when the makers of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' looked into it, they couldn't find out ''why'' exactly it was that way, so he was finally allowed to appear in outside media. He's since cameoed as a member of the Justice League in ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'', and is set to get his own live-action show on the CW.
