Ed's Notes: One of the two original Outsiders to have never been written up in 2nd or 3rd Edition. And of, course, in the 1970's and 1980's if you were a Superhero who happened to be black, you were contractually obligated to include the word "Black" in your name. (Because DIVERSITY, but also TOKENISM!) At least the costume has improved since back them. I gave him "Secret Identity," because, if he's a teacher, his student's lives would be at risk if it was widely known that he was also Black Lightning.  I can't verify this in game terms, however, as the "Secret Identity" Drawback didn't exist in the 1st Edition. (Even Batman, the most famous "Secret Identity" in all of comics doesn't have it!) But it makes sense for this character, so I've added it. (Please feel free to let me know if you don't think it applies, based on the comics - or the TV show!)
