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 »
This is not the way to go about it Static.
I've got to find Puff! She's the reason why Daisy got hurt.
She got hurt because you were busy showing off and you know it.

I think this is one of the best Cartoon shows KidsWB has! It's really cool! I think it's neat because it talks about current issues, like bigots, homeless folk, gangs, guns...... each eppie they try something new! And the fact that Static has LIMITS is rather cool! I mean, he can actually get knocked out, feel tired, and has social obligations! Plus he's a normal kid in a abnormal situation! 2 Thumbs Up for this series!!
