Show Summary

Quick-witted Virgil Hawkins finds himself imbued with electromagnetic superpowers after being exposed to a mutanic gas and takes on the guise of Static, an urban hero of his own creation. He confronts real problems and issues faced by today's kids, such as peer pressure, gangs and growing up in an ethnically diverse urban neighborhood. Learning to control his powers, figuring out how to patrol the skies at night and still make it home in time to study for his chemistry class, Virgil's greatest discovery becomes the real "charge" he gets in helping people and making a positive difference in his community - Dakota City. First Telecast: September 23, 2000 Last Telecast: May 22, 2004 Episodes: 52 Color episodes (52 half-hour episodes, 1 two-part episodes) Production: Warner Bros. Animation Distributors: Kids' WB For updates on Static, go to the creator's homepage at: http://www.dwaynemcduffie.com/ Character Guide Virgil Hawkins / Static Shock - Can control electricity and manipulate metal objects. He's been living with his sister and father. His father works for the city. His mother was a paramedic until one day she died in the Dakota Riots. Richie Foley/Gear - Virgil's best friend and is a genius. Richie mutates in the third season and gains superpowers. He's still Static's sidekick, but he has a more active role creating the tools they need to stop crime. Hotstreak - Francis Stone Aka F-Stop. A gang leader who bullied Virgil around. Mutated so he could control fire. Ebon - Aka Ivan Evans. Petty thief, who has a gang of three. He turned into a living shadow. He can go under doors, through cracks and even take others with him. Rubberband Man - Aka Adam Evans. Disgruntled music writer. He used his powers for revenge when a famous rap star stole his lyrics. His body is like a rubber band that can stretch or become anything. Now, he's using his powers for good. He is Ebon's brother. Talon - Real name revealed to be Teresa. Mutated into a bird. She's one of the members of the meta-breed. She can fly and screech at high levels, which is deafening to anything around her. Shiv - Also part of the meta-breed, along with Ebon and Talon. He can create light energy weapons at his disposal. Puff - A meta-human bounty hunter. She can breathe any kind of gas (acid or knock-out) from her mouth and also turn her legs into steam to fly. Onyx - Puff's sidekick in the show. He's a rock monster with super strength. Carmen Dillo - A humanoid armadillo who could roll up into a ball and launch himself as a projectile. Kangor - The leader of the Ruffpack with feet big enough to deliver powerful kicks and shake the ground. Sometimes works with Ebon. Ferret - Member of the Ruffpack who has a snout that can smell anything. He can also scale buildings. Omnifarious - Edwin Alva Jr. can use his meta gas and control it to have any power he wants. He probably could have found a cure if things hadn't been ruined with his dad.

    Even after all these years I still love this show. I rewatched the entire series only a couple of years ago and it still holds up. The story lies are hilarious, thoughtful and interesting. I adore the fact that I always accept Virgil and Richie as being teenage boys with good hearts. I always wish the show had gone on longer because I wanted to see where they would go after Bang Babies where cured.



    Man... now I want to watch it all over again.moreless
