Obscurity of DC Presents: Obscure Book Club, Week 112 (June 2-June 8) --- WHITE THUNDER!

Why hello there, @ObscurityofDCClub and other members of the DC Community! Welcome to Week 112 of Obscurity of DC’s Obscure Book Club! This week, we’ll be focusing on…


WHITE THUNDER!!!
AGE SUGGESTION: 12+

Number of Issues: 6

Description from… me, @Jurisdiction: White Thunder is Sssearr, an alien employed by Tobias Whale. His goal is to kill Black Lightning.

Now that that’s over with, here are some discussion questions:

  1. When introduced in issue 4, what was the significance of White Thunder’s gang that made them different from common gangs and dangerous foes for Black Lightning?
  2. Being considered his polar opposite, why does White Thunder annoy Black Lightning so much? Particularly with his name.
  3. Does the reveal that White Thunder is a alien come off as surprise in the story? Does it change your perspective on him?
  4. Working for Tobias Whale, why does it appear Sssearr want to prove his worth to him, and how does it relate to Black Lightning?
  5. Despite lacking moral qualms about allowing people, even children, to be collateral, does Sssearr’s later actions in helping the police stop Tobias make him a somewhat sympathetic character? Why or why not?
