“A “ruggedly handsome with long raven hair, ink art on his body, and one born from a strong Chinese lineage.” The character has had a rough history, who was once a homeless alcoholic from Gotham but now works as an inconspicuous bartender and an exceptionally gifted tech wiz helping Khalil.”
Hodge will star alongside Sibongile Mlambo and James Roch. “Painkiller” will be a planted pilot spinoff which will air on season 4 of CW’s “Black Lightning” as episode 7.
Exciting times ahead for Hodge, and let’s support him and checkout the spinoff if and when we can!~~
