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
i have this theory that every time we dream, we see an alternate reality. after all, in string theory, all universes exist. i have died many times there. i get déjà vu a lot. i wonder if i am in someone else’s dream, and she has just woken up. maybe she’s screaming at me to stop, to move a little to the left, to watch out. when i wake up i always wonder if i’m the same me or i’ve been replaced by the girl in my dream. if i died there to get a second chance here. or maybe here is where i’m learning how not to die so violently. i don’t know. i don’t get much sleep.
The Lazy Dance takes place on Stephanie’s half-birthday, and when asked how she wants to celebrate, she says that she wants to have a dance party. So everyone gets together in town square and starts to practice their dance moves, when Sportacus shows up. He gets invited to Stephanie’s half-birthday party, but when she tells him that it’s a dance party, he gets really nervous because he doesn’t know how to dance. He tells the kids this, but they don’t believe him because he’s a superhero, and there’s nothing that a superhero can’t do. When the kids leave, he does a little out loud exposition to himself that Robbie overhears. Then Robbie dresses up as a dance instructor who offers to teach Sportacus how to dance. But he teaches him these really, really awful dance moves so that he looks stupid at the party so everyone will lose respect for him. The song is We’re Dancing. When Sportacus gets to the party, he performs the dumb dance moves, but the kids teach him some their own dance moves so that he doesn’t look like a complete fool, and their innocence once again trumps Robbie’s evil plans.
