Static Shock #1

September 11, 2011 11:38 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

This was a bit of a surprise. Static comes from an animated series than ran for a few years in the early 2000’s, and for whatever reason had frequent crossovers with Batman, Superman, and the Justice League on their respective animated series. I never watched the show, but I thought he was pretty cool in the episode of JL he appears in, although that took place in the future, so that version of him was about half a century older.

Unfortunately, since I don’t know much else about the character, it was hard to tell what was new and what was returning from the cartoon. I can tell that the setting has changed to New York rather than wherever it was, and Static looks a bit older now. I don’t know what’s up with his weird Iron Man-style mentor, or if he has any history with the villains (a bunch of teenagers riding Tron light-cycles).

I can definitely tell that this is meant for teens and adults rather than kids, since there’s some mild swearing and some killing.

Verdict: Eh, we’ll see.
