Dude, Not Funny!: During Winick's run on the series, there was a running joke about Thunder possibly being the product of an extramarital affair. This did not go over well with Black Lightning fans, who did not appreciate the notion of Jefferson Pierce being cuckolded.
Follow the Leader: Owlman was added to the team around the time that DC's parent company released a movie adaptation of Watchmen, and his costume bears a strong resemblance to Dan Dreiberg's Nite-Owl costume in the film.
