"Justice League member Black Vulcan™ wields control over electricity in all its forms. He can use lightning as a weapon or blast it from his hands, transform his legs into a lightning bolt to fly, travel super-fast across large distances, and even fluctuate his body’s energy to let him travel through time. He’s also really great to have around when The Flash™ dances too hard and blows out the Fortress of Solitude’s power generator!" —LEGO.com
Unlike most of the Super Friends, Black Vulcan was not a pre-existing DC Comics character. This is particularly notable since DC Comics' roster did include an African American superhero with electricity-based powers, Black Lightning, who could not be used on the show due to disputes between DC and Black Lightning's creator Tony Isabella. His powers include the ability to emit electricity from his hands. He can also fly by charging his lower body with energy. On a few occasions, he has exhibited powers he had not shown before, such as the ability to assume a form of pure energy and travel at the speed of light (in an unsuccessful attempt to escape a black hole.) He was able to travel back in time by fluctuating his body's energy to open a rift in space-time. Black Vulcan is able to spot-weld microelectronics.
Black Vulcan is also memorable for his appearance in the TV show Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law.
