Storyline

In Dakota City, Virgil Hawkins is an ordinary kid who gets into big trouble, which gets him pressured into joining a street gang. That night, Virgil's gang has a major rumble at a chemical storage yard that the police interrupt by tear gassing the lot. That gassing accidentally detonates a series of chemical explosions that creates the infamous "Bang Baby Incident" that affects all the gangs and more. For instance, Virgil gains the powerful ability to project and control electricity at will. With the help of his inventive friend, Richie (who would much later get his own powers to become Gear), Virgil decides to become the superhero, Static. As it happens, this new career is well timed considering many of the surviving rumblers also become superpowered themselves and become dangerous supervillians. Against this new and growing threat, Static is determined to fight for justice, even while his personal life gets a major shock to its system. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Trivia

When Ritchie gains superpowers in season three, he considers Hardware as his hero name. Virgil says it's already in use. This is a reference to the comic book "Hardware," published by the same company (Milestone Media/DC Comics) that published the original "Static" comics. Series producer Denys Cowan created both comics. See more »

Static Got Screwed....
13 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In my opinion of the show's fate, I think that warner brothers officials were wrong to cancel this show, although it lasted 4 seasons it could've been at least 3 more seasons until the did what they did...

As for this whole comic book movie battle between DC and MARVEL, I think that DC/WARNER BROS. should make a live action version of static shock and bring it to the big screen. Not that many people knew who Blade was until Wesley Snipes played the role

So in the end, if DC wants to introduce new product to the big screen, why not give Static his time in the spotlight...I mean c'mon, they gave Jonah Hex his own film later this year.
