Yes. Lightning is back!
If you got lucky with the Snow, Vanille, and Sazh's increased drop rate during the last banner, complete the your FFXIII party with Lightning, Hope, and Fang.

Should you pull in FFBE for Hope?
Hope has decent magic for a 5* unit. We like the fact that he has access to heavy-hitting magical attacks like Firaga and Thundaga - fitting for a Black Mage. With his magical arsenal - he can hit many elemental weaknesses.
However, because he doesn't have a 6*, we cannot really recommend him at this point. We want a mage that can hit more than the elementals. For example, someone like Kefka with Heartless Angel, or Arc's Dual Black Magic.
Ability: Aero Blitz

Base: Physical damage (2.1x) and reduce ATK (10%) for 3 turns to one enemy
Max: Physical damage (2.55x) and reduce ATK (19%) for 3 turns to one enemy

Should you pull for Fang?
Fang is pretty interesting with Area Blast. This means that, in that thing alone, she can outmatched Kain, the best Dragoon currently in the global version of Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius.
However, if this is your first time or you are very early into the game, and you got Fang, then she will be useful. However, many of us probably have multiple Kains already.
Hope and Fang, atleast for this Final Fantasy XIII event in FFBE will not be a good pull at this point, even if Lightning is on the fray. Lightning, technically, is one of the best units and everyone's Waifu. However, it will be better to wait for a better Banner out there to get her.
But if you really love Lightning, then now is your chance! She is one of those units who can be with you up to the current end-game, and that's a good thing.
