Great First Episode
22 February 2013 | by See all my reviews

this is one of the best pilots i've seen but not as good as other DCAU Series.i used to watch this all the time i still do on the internet. This episode sets up a lot of build up for later episodes about the big recap.Virgil Hawkens (Static)explains how a bully called F-Stop kept picking on him but this guy named Wade protected Virgil from him.Wade tells him to come to this gang war to settle things with F-Stop.Virgil goes but decides to leave.The cops show up and they fire tear gas but they set of chemicals near by that in fact a lot of people.The next day Virgil discovers he has electrical powers.Virgil and Richie decide he should be a super hero.Virgil's adventures as Static begin.A great first episode
