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

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 »

Back off! Mess with me, you have to mess with my posse.
Do you really think I'm afraid of some street gang?
Street gang? Dawg, I'm talkin' about my lawyers.

African American super heroes are virtually non-existent. I'm glad that there's another black hero to add color to the fold. Static is urban, REAL and black- not a show trying to suit "mainstream" tastes by neglecting cultural references and themes.
