This Week’s Theme:
Black History Month Spotlight - Static Shock!
Although our Black History Month MTM Spotlight is winding down, our celebration’s just as turbo-charged as it’s always been as we end the month with a week devoted to the electrifying Static Shock!
After suddenly finding himself equipped with the ability to control, generate, and absorb electricity, Static’s journey is one that’s both profound and inspiring. Having overcome a number of obstacles to eventually reclaim his life’s purpose, he uses his powers to protect his family, friends, and neighborhood with a style and finesse that’s magnetic, bold, and truly all his own!

Static Shock: A History
Created by Dwayne McDuffie, Static Shock began as a Milestone Comics character, eventually evolving to become a Milestone Media/DC Comics animated series that premiered in 2000.
Electromagnetism isn’t your everyday superpower. But the ability to manipulate electrically charged particles is exactly what powers Virgil Hawkins. In between his studies and his after-school internship at S.T.A.R. Labs in New York, this brilliant but at times awkward high school student finds his extracurricular time taken up with rescuing his friends and saving the city as the DC Super Hero Static. Armed with sick burns to equal his high voltage, this dynamo uses humor to keep his cool even while hurling electrified smackdowns at anyone threatening his turf.
A well-known fan favorite, Static Shock’s undeniable magnetism continues to reverberate through the DC Universe, both onscreen, and in comic books, alike!
