- As originally depicted, Black Vulcan's costume had the super-hero equivalent of pants, but in later episodes his legs are bare.
- Black Vulcan was created to replace an already existing hero named Black Lightning when legal reasons with Black Lightning's creator, Tony Isabella and DC, prevented the character from being used.
- 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).
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 (April 1977), and was created by Tony Isabella and Trevor Von Eeden.
