Static Shock is an American, two-dimensional, action-adventure, animated series that aired on Saturday mornings and weekday afternoons in the early 2000s. The show is based on the superhero Static from Milestone Comics, a division of DC Comics. All 14-year-old Virgil Hawkins wants to do is survive his days in high school, hook up with his crush, Frieda, and avoid a bully named F-Stop. However, things change when a gang member named Wade saves Virgil from F-Stop. When Wade brings Virgil along to a secluded area where his gang is about to fight F-Stop's crew, a stray shot is fired and strikes a gas canister. The released gas causes mutations to those in the vicinity. One of those affected is Virgil, who gains the ability to create, control, and manipulate electricity and magnetism. After seeing how destructive gang violence can be, especially after his mother is killed in the crossfire between two rival crews, Virgil decides to use his powers for good as the superhero Static. He's joined by his best friend Richie Foley, who obtains superhuman intelligence through contact with Virgil and becomes the hero Gear. Together, the pair battle various villains around the city. This includes Bang Babies - a number of gang members that gained special abilities after being exposed to the gas. Created by comic book writer Dwayne McDuffie, Static Shock premiered on the Kids' WB! block of animated programs in September 2000 and ran for four seasons, ending in May of 2004. Actor and voiceover artist Phil LaMarr provided the voice for Virgil/Static. Other voice actors included Jason Marsden as Richie, Kevin Michael Richardson as Virgil's father Robert, Dan Lauria and Jean Smart as Richie's parents, and Danica McKellar as Frieda.
