  • Trivia

    • After Shenice breaks out of the harness, she jumps at the guy with the gun. When she does, she's wearing the fire-proof gloves she used against Hotstreak, although she lost one of them earlier. To make it worse, they vanish after that shot.

    • When Shebang throws Hotstreak into the fountain, he lands head-first with his chest pointed towards the ground. When we see him after the splash finishes, he's turned over onto his back.

    • Every single showing at the theater was Space Battles.

    • How did Shebang kiss Gear through his faceplate? This isn't the first time this has happened, either. He's inhaled a feather and eaten through that faceplate. How does he do it?

    • Static's gloves are missing when he and Gear approach the rocking chair float. They're back on when he uses his powers to keep it from flying away. Static's gloves are missing again just as he and Gear arrive at the airfield to see the plane taking off. The gloves are back on when they begin pursuing it.

    • When Gear tells Hotstreak the metal is fire proof, he isn't wearing his gloves. But when Hotstreak blows him back, he is.

  • Quotes

    • Static: Alright, you've got two cranky super-powered teenagers back here. We've run out of peanuts and there's no in-flight movie. Any thoughts?
      Pilot: (looking horrified) I'm already heading back.
      Static: Good thinking.

    • Shebang: What? Afraid I'm gonna show you up again, shock jockey? Well, you can relax.
      Static: I am relaxed. You're the one jumpin' around like a demented cheerleader.

    • Daisy: We're all in the same P.E. class.
      Frieda: In fact, we were talking at the soccer tryouts when your names came up.
      Virgil: Oh, ok, you twisted my arm. I will coach girls' soccer.
      Richie: And I'll hand out the towels.

    • Static: You can't destroy a theater just because you're not feeling a movie!
      Hotstreak: Have you seen it? Somebody's gotta pay!

    • (After Shenice kisses Static)
      Static: (to Gear) Maybe having a girl on the team won't be so bad.

  • Notes

    • Shebang is the only one on Static's team that's not a bang baby.

    • Shebang is a reference to Static's sidekick Dusk from the comics. There were several differences in the two characters, such as the fact that Dusk was a murderer on the run, as well as the fact that Dusk was white.

  • Allusions

    • n/a: Shebang
      Shebang's name sounds like a reference to a Ricky Martin song with the title, "She Bangs".

    • Gear: Static has left the building. Thank you very much.
      An obvious reference to the late Elvis Presley.

    • n/a: "Space Battles: Episode 9"
      The billboard Hotstreak was attacking looked a lot like Star Wars. The title was the first tip-off, but the picture on the board confirms it.
