Ok everyone Jack is back, Ben 10′s reboot is getting closer, and Boomerang’s streaming service is launching this summer. There’s a lot to be excited about in the world of cartoons, I get it. But let’s not gloss over the fact that Static Shock is getting it’s first ever full season release this Tuesday (March 28th)!
Honestly everyone I’ve talked to about it just gives the standard, “that’s cool,” response when I mention this and it’s heresy. Static shock, the coolest electric based super-hero, is coming to home video? You bet your butt I’m excited for that. Let’s hope he ends up in a few episodes of Justice League Action!
Your regular, friendly reminder that one of the most popular comic book creations of the late 20th century, not to mention one of the few “Modern Age” characters to truly break out in the mainstream, is still Virgil Ovid Hawkins, known by most as Static, yet to this day called Static Shock.
Over 20 years later, he’s still putting a shock to the system.
