  • Episode Description
  • After Kangor suddenly loses his powers, Ebon and his crew find out that it's from inhaling Dr. Todd's cure. Soon, every bang baby in Dakota (even Static and Gear) begin to revert back, but Ebon tries to stop this from happening. Ebon and his crew plan to steal what's left of the bang baby gas that was used in making the cure to stage another Big Bang before everyone's cured.

  • Quotes (10)

    • Hotstreak: What's the problem, sparky? Running out of juice?
      Static: Hah, look who's talking! I've seen birthday candles hotter than you!

    • Kangorr: You're supposed to grab the cash, mon. What you doing with all that food?
      Ferret: I was hungry. Is that a crime?
      Static: No, but everything else you do is!

    • Virgil: I tell you Rich, Sharon is not gonna let up. If pops hadn't come in with that razor...
      Richie: So, maybe it's not that bad that he found out about your secret identity.
      Virgil: Yeah: He saves me from Sharon, and I save him a fortune in appliance repairs!

    • Virgil: (to the highly annoyed Daisy and Frieda) Wait! We can explain! Richie: We can?

    • Frieda: Look! It's Static and Gear. Daisy: And as usual, Virgil and Richie are missing out. Frieda: You don't think...? Daisy: Nah! Both: Couldn't be.

    Notes (10)

    • Ebon's true appearance is seen in this episode.

    • This can be debated on whether this episode was a cliffhanger, since there was evidence that there were supposed to be later episodes. But then it can be argued that there was a happy ending, and there wasn't necessarily a need for new episodes. There is a similar debate on this for the last episode of Gargoyles: The Goliath Chronicles.

    • This was not meant to be the end of the series. Warner Brothers wanted a fifth season (65 episodes works better for syndication purposes). McDuffie stated on his website that they could not do a fifth season without a toy line deal and no toy company wanted to do Static Shock figures. Fans have responded by making reruns of Static Shock among the highest rated on Cartoon Network.

    • In the end, Gear says that they don't know how many Bang Babies were made by the new explosion. If they had made a new series, Talon would have definitely returned, as she was the first person to breathe any of the gas.

    • Gear will make an antidote for the antidote of the bang baby gas. So, if someone tries to cure the metahumans again, him and Static will be the only ones with powers.

    Trivia (10)

    • Goof: When Virgil and Richie are outside of school between classes, the latter's backpack is colored green. However, towards the end of the scene after they speak to Frieda and Daisy, his bag is colored black.

    • Goof: Gear says he'll make a "cure for the cure." Isn't that the gas itself?

    • Reply to first one: Ebon did have the power of shadow control, but when he had his powers, he could stretch like that, and he still could because his powers were't completely gone.

    • Ebon didn't have the power of elasticity, but instead the power of shadow control. After he lost the shadow-skin, he shouldn't have been able to grab Teresa from across the room.

    • When Tamara first appeared, she hated being a Bang Baby. So, why was she trying to get her powers back?

    Allusions (2)

    • Lord of the Rings: The creature that Ebon and Hotstreak fuse into is similar to the Balrog from 'Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring'.

    • Gear: Highly illogical, Captain.
      Gear does an impression of the ever-thinking Spock from Star Trek after Static asks if Ebon and Hotstreak could still be around.
