First appearance of Static, aka Virgil Ovid Hawkins (not including previews)
Static’s first solo series.
Static’s physiology was altered by a mutant-genetic explosion which caused him to adapt unusual powers. Static’s body can generate raw electromagnetic energy, which he has learned to manipulate, control and enhance.
Static is also a gifted student that applies his scientific knowledge in combat and real life situations and does so almost intuitively. This allows him a certain advantage over less clever opponents. Static Shock is the first black superhero to star in his own cartoon series.
Milestone is the creator of the Dakotaverse, which includes Static Shock, Blood Syndicate, Icon, Hardware and many others.
Milestone’s properties were published and distributed by DC comics.
