Based on the Milestone/DC Comics character, Static Shock follows the adventures of the first African-American teenage superhero, quick-witted Virgil Hawkins, who is imbued with electromagnetic superpowers. After being exposed to a mutagenetic gas, Virgil became "Static," an urban hero of his own creation.
In the third season Virgil continues to patrol the streets and the skies of Dakota for any signs of danger - but he's now joined in that task by his best-friend Richie, who has assumed the guise of "Gear," a techno-whiz superhero of his own design, who is loaded with high-tech crime-stopping tools - which the two of them will need as they confront some of their most challenging adventures yet! Joined by guest stars including Lil' Romeo, Billy Dee Williams and Alfre Woodard, Static and Gear will be faced with adventures near and far - including an episode in South Africa where Static encounters an ancient African superhero, and adventures closer to home with villains and superhero's both old and new including Batman, Superman, Poison Ivy and a special two-part episode with the Justice League. Being a superhero is not easy-Virgil must keep up his grades in school, deal with an annoying older sister and be sure his father doesn't discover his super secret - all while learning to master his electromagnetic energies in new and better ways.
Virgil's greatest discovery is the real "charge" he gets out of helping people and making a positive difference within his community. Giving this animated series a distinct style and flavor, music will play a more creative role in story development. The series breaks new ground in children's television as Static Shock confronts real problems and issues faced by today's kids, including homelessness, peer pressure, gun violence and growing up in an ethnically diverse urban neighborhood.
Static Shock is produced and animated by Warner Bros. Animation, under the creative supervision of supervising producer Alan Burnett and producers Denys Cowan and Swinton Scott.
STATIC / VIRGIL HAWKINS
A school kid from Dakota, Virgil Hawkins is a quick-witted thinker with electromagnetic capabilities resulting from exposure to mutagenetic gas. Charged with super powers, he can fire bolts from his fists and propel objects in the air. As Virgil masters these powers, he learns to work with a new partner -best friend Richie, a.k.a. Gear, who recently discovered his own super powers. It's not easy being a hero, and Virgil must protect his secret from his sister and father, creating comedic moments as he hides the truth. With each new adventure, Static gains confidence in himself and his abilities, discovering inner meaning while learning to fuse power with purpose.
GEAR / RICHIE FOLEY
Richie Foley, Virgil's best friend - and Static's new crime-fighting partner - experiences a delayed reaction to the Big Bang incident, discovering meta-human powers...in his brain. With an advanced understanding of physics and computer technology, Richie can create effective high-tech tools to confront the villains of Dakota, becoming Gear, a new defender of truth and justice. Quirky and confident, Richie is the real comic book guru in this duo - forever trying out new super hero inventions for Static and himself.
Robert Hawkins is Virgil's dad, a single parent raising two children to become the best people possible. Director of the local community center, Robert is intelligent and caring, maintaining a strong, loving father-son relationship with Virgil. Robert's protective instincts emerge when Virgil disappears, stirring fears that street life may impact his family. If only he knew, his son's the town super hero!
Sharon Hawkins is Virgil's protective, wise-cracking sister, giving as good as she gets in the ongoing verbal feud she has with Virgil. A sassy, smart young woman, Sharon attends Dakota University - juggling a full course load, a budding social life and a little brother who always seems to be getting into some sort of mischief.
Dakota Union High student Daisy Watkins is blessed with a poetic soul and a genius mind. Attractive and eclectic, her friendship with Virgil began at a prestigious private school for gifted science students. Inquisitive by nature, Daisy's clear, calm attitude keeps her out of dangerous situations. As these two kindred spirits become closer, Virgil has difficulty keeping his 'super' secret from Daisy.
Frieda Goren's ardent and passionate nature and striking red hair make her one of Dakota Union High School's most popular students. With 70's radicals for parents, Frieda is an activist-in-the-making. She is a reporter for the school newspaper, which she finds an excellent place to voice her opinions - and to investigate the strange happenings in Dakota.
Possessing an ability to manipulate fire, Hotstreak is one of Static's early foes his alter ego, F-Stop, is the high school bully who beat Virgil up when Virgil tried to prevent F-Stop's harassment of Frieda. Like Virgil, F-Stop acquired his powers from exposure to mutagenic gas - his biggest problem is an uncontrollable temper, which causes him to go on frequent rampages.
Led by Ebon, this group of formerly warring street thugs transformed by the Big Bang has united with one goal: to rule Dakota by any means necessary. Members include Talon, a deadly bird-like woman, and Shiv, a fun-loving but maniacal guy with an ability to fashion light-energy weapons from his hands. The Meta-Breed - not down with them? Then you're their target.
Leader of the Meta-Breed, Ebon is a control freak and a most elusive villain. He is in fact a living shadow, able to flatten against any surface and move silently and speedily wherever he wants. He also possesses inter-dimensional powers - allowing him to disappear in one spot and re-appear in another - and has been known to use these powers to kidnap his victims. His one great weakness: Static's intense electric light powers, which can paralyze and temporarily obliterate his shadowy form.
Test tube baby Shebang, genetically engineered to be a prototype super strong athlete, was brought home from the lab by her parents, who chose to raise her as their daughter. Alter ego Shenice Vale is timid and demure, in direct opposition to Shebang's personality: a ball of limitless energy, she bounces from rooftop to rooftop performing incredible feats of strength, making her one of Static's closets allies.
