I spotted this review of a new comic book series called Painkiller on WorldOfBlackheroes.com and had to repost it here! Tony Isabella created Painkiller for DC comics and below is a quick bio on the character:
Meta Human villain who was hired o kill Black Lightning. In their first meeting he most managed the task but the police intervened. When they tussled next a young boy ended up dyeing after Painkiller had taken down the entire police force. During the fight he tried to stab Black Lightning with an energy bade which caused an explosive backlash which knocked him out.
