Erica Moran (born October 24, 2002) is a meta-human formerly contained in an A.S.A. research facility who joined Black Lightning's team.


Original multiverse

Erica was apprehended by the ASA on October 8th, and her file would be examined and shredded afterwards by Lynn Stewart.

New multiverse

Erica Moran is seen training in the A.S.A. facility when Sara Grey demands that a kill order be placed for Lynn Stewart after choosing her as a member of Black Lightning's team.[1] A deal was then made to return the meta-humans Black Lightning chose back to their families after the mission. Following the success of the mission to Markovia, the A.S.A. kept their end of the deal, allowing Erica to return to her family with her profile erased from the A.S.A.'s database.[2]


Erica Moran is shown to be resilient, quiet and even hostile at times. Rarely talking to others and mostly keeping to herself, she has often refused to engage in conversion with some of her teammates, most notably Geoffrey Baron. This could also be due to her lack of interest in him. Despite these qualities, however, Erica displays a willingness to help others when it counts most.
