You can import lightning stock footage, or you can create lightning by drawing it freehand with the neon engine and animating it.

Nifty. There are a few presets, to get you started:

http://fxhome.com/presets/view/311/blue-lightning
http://fxhome.com/presets/view/845/force-lightning

There are a few others as well, that are more designed to enhance the lightning, like glow, flares for impact, sparks and such, if you search for Lighting in the preset library.
