i love the idea of cass being friends with everyone in the league like,,, she’s friends with everyone in clark’s family cuz he brings them over to the manor so often, but also??? she’s friends with roy and ollie and dinah and she doesn’t piss them off??? ever??? like put the three of them in a room together and a fight will break out, but add cass and then everything’s just peachy keen
she’s friends with the lesser known heroes too, like elastic man and the guardian and others and while she may not always talk to them she always sends them postcards??? like if she goes to their cities or even their country for some reason se’ll just write up a mini-letter and drop it off to them,,,,, they’re no longer surprised by it and send her postcards back
Dear mansplaining morons who think "Batman could totally win a fight with Wonder Woman"
Are y'all high?
- an average human dude - has no superpowers to speak of - trained fighting for like, 10, 20 years tops - uses fancy but breakable human-made gadgets
- literally a deity - “only a god can kill another god” - trained fighting for 500 to 2,000 years (depending on who you ask) under Antiope, the greatest general in the history of a legendary warrior race - can fly - can literally level a building with a single punch - can control lightning - able to take punches by someone capable of crumbling a gun with their bare hands - can toss a tank with her bare hands like it’s nbd - has magical weapons originally made for & owned by gods
Being a man doesn’t give you the ability to defeat a deity who’s trained forcenturies under the best of the best, has magic powers, and magic weapons, you twats.
Look at how the other heroes smile at him, they are genuinely happy to meet him. When Superman saves him, he isn’t upset. He’s happy. He asked to be saved and he was
And it’s not the last time either. You see it here
he works well with the justice league members even though his interactions with them are rare and in between.
He’s literally never afraid to ask them for help
I mean, look at that. He made the bat signal, he was outright asking for help as publicly as he ever could.
and in “Fallen hero” when he thought Green Lantern really had become evil…
Just look at his face. He is shocked. He can’t believe one of his heroes would do this, he tried to figure out why, tried to come up with a reason to explain it, so it would make sense.
And the moment Sinestro, disguised as Green Lantern, hurt Gear. He knew it was true, and he’s horrified that the person he looked up to did this and he’s angry, angry that he didn’t see this.
Static knows when to fight
but he also knows when someone just needs a helping hand
and sure, he jokes around
but he also knows how important the work he does is
and he also knows what happens if he messes up
His family knows what it is he does and they all support him in whatever way they can.
and that’s why I love Static shock. Yes, they touched upon some serious issues
they didn’t dumb it down for the audience, or treat the issues with kiddie gloves, they addressed the issues and those were also the same episodes that they broke the fourth wall. Dyslexia, gun control, gang violence, racism. They didn’t pull their punches on this show.
They showed us a still very much grieving teenager who almost joins a gang in the first episode, who gets powers that he uses to protect other people without a moment of hesitation, not even thinking of getting revenge on his bullies. Even as a superhero, he still volunteers at the community center his dad runs.
Yes, Virgil makes mistakes, he’s still a kid after all, but he’s so genuinely kind and sincere that we can’t help but love him.
I don’t know if it actually is Static shock appreciation week officially, but it is for me
