Anissa’s character in Black Lightning Season 2
The second season of the American television series Black Lightning, based on the DC Comics character Jefferson Pierce / Black Lightning, premiered on The CW on October 9, 2018. The season continues to follow Jefferson, a high school principal who recently re-emerged from retirement as the superhero Black Lighting, as he fights against the rising crime and corruption propagated by the local gang called The 100 in his community of Freeland. Anissa Pierce is shown to be like her father. She is an intelligent, open-minded young woman. She is not afraid in standing up for what she believes. Anissa is also brave as she has stated she’s not afraid of the 100, but this tends to get her in trouble with both the gang and the police as a result of her hotheadedness. She is also very protective of people, as Lynn mentioned that even when Anissa was little she would always try to protect people, whether if it was Jennifer or someone else on the playground. Her character is portrayed by Nafessa Williams.
