It just that recently they revealed he had children with her before they divorced. Seeing as how Jefferson was only superheroly active in the shortlived 70s and 90s Black Lightning series and 80s Outsider series, (and not in numerous titles like Batman and Superman) its not unreasonable to think he helped his ex-wife Lynn raise his daughters off panel.

> How did Johns miss the fact Thunder's childhood and relationship with Black Lightning pre-her first appearance are blank slates? How did he miss that (to my knowledge) BL's ex-wife has never made an appearance in print? She appears as if we are supposed to be as familiar with her and her backstory as we are with Lois Kent's and it's frustrating. Johns is usually the guy who makes a story out of continuity gaffes. How odd he's perpetuating one of his own...

I only have a slight problem with the sudden introductions of his daughters. I can let that go considering so much could have happened off panel. My big problem with all of this is that he was originally a hero who relied on a weapon (his belt generated the lightning). It's too much of a stretch for me to accept that Jeff had internalized his power and then had children, all within the last 10-12 years of DC's rolling time line. Even extending it to 20 years is not enough considering all that would have had to happen before he had his children.
