* {{Asspull}}: Creator/JuddWinick's first issue of ''[[ComicBook/BatmanAndTheOutsiders The Outsiders]]'' introduces us to Black Lightning's daughter Anissa, who ends up becoming the heroine Thunder. [[RememberTheNewGuy His 20-something year old daughter whom had never been seen or mentioned in any prior series featuring Black Lightning, despite his wife being a fairly prominent figure in many stories]]. GeoffJohns then took this even further in his [[ComicBook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica JSA]] run by introducing us to ''another'' previously-unseen daughter, Jennifer.

* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Before even debuting. DC originally tried to make their first headlining black superhero a character named Black Bomber, who was a white racist and described as "an insult to practically everybody with any point of view at all" by comics historian Don Markstein. After his character was [[AWorldwidePunomenon scrapped]], Tony Isabella (who also wrote for ComicBook/{{Luke Cage|HeroForHire}}, the resident black superhero at MarvelComics) was asked to salvage the design.

** Jennifer had been foreshadowed in BadFuture story ''ComicBook/KingdomCome''. This still qualifies as an Ass Pull by virtue of Black Lightning having no references to children just a short time before this, and his age in TheOutsiders comics previously being about Batman's age at the oldest. [[ComicBookTime He'd have already had to father these women by the time of his introduction.]]
