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)

Quotes

Static: Gear, you okay, bro?
Gear: No! My one chance to tag team with Superman and I miss it because I bust my ankle!
[Superman looks at Gear's ankle with his x-ray vision]
Superman: Nothing's broken. Looks like just a bad sprain. You'll probably have to keep off it for a few days.
Gear: Wow, I just had my ankle x-rayed by Superman! I'm never gonna wash it again!

About Time
17 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

This show is very good. I have never seen any cartoon that feature African Americans as the main character. It is about time cartoons started being "real". As far as trying to be too black, I think that most teenagers act that way. Name two no one show similar to this, HA you can't. I like this show, it is real nice, now it only they had a girl version. Very good I hope they keep it on for a while.
