  • The character of Black Vulcan was created by Hanna-Barbera Productions and is unique to the continuity of the Super Friends television series.
  • Black Vulcan made his first DC Comics appearance in DC One Million 80 Page Giant # 1,000,000 (August 1999).[1]

Other Versions

Black Lightning

Black Lightning


Black Vulcan was a take off on Black Lightning, a character who already existed in the DC Comics Universe. Apparently there were challenges with the creator of Black Lightning, so Black Vulcan was invented.

When Black Lightning wasn't generating electricity through his body, he was a high school teacher and former Olympic decathlete. Jefferson Pierce returned to his old neighborhood in the Southside (Suicide Slum) of the city of Metropolis, with his wife Lynn Stewart and his daughter Anissa to become the principal of Garfield High School. Black Lightning debuted in Black Lightning vol.1, #1[2] (April 1977), and was created by Tony Isabella and Trevor Von Eeden.
