Super talented artist/illustrator Marcus Williams is non stop with his creative pieces. In the middle of his busy schedule he managed to craft this awesome illustration of a young Black Lightning for his Young Heroes Unlimited series. He did this one in celebration of the new Black Lightning TV series which recently premiered on the CW Network

Young Heroes Unlimited was created by Marcus as a way to showcase “strong young melanated heroes” In a world where representation of them is non-existent. This particular Young Hero is one of those rare occasions where they actually are showcasing one of the few older existing melanated hero 😉 .

Marcus’s work on this Young Heroes: Unlimited “Black Lightning” is ridiculously awesome and we can’t wait to see more from this series.
