Static (Milestone)
Real Name: Virgil Ovid Hawkins
Search for 'Static (Milestone)' on Amazon


Powers:
Primarily the Generation and Manipulation, of electromagnetic energy. The wide variety of powers this gives him are limited only by Virgil's imagination.

A short list of abilities Static is capable of using his power:

Leviatating metallic objects.
Forcing objects to cling to one another.
Charging electronic items, draining them of energy, and magnetising/unmagnetising metals.
A Taser Punch, a physical attack accompanied by an electromagnetic burst of energy.

Weaknesses:
Primarily water, as his powers are focused around Electromagnetic energy, water has a habit of 'shorting out' his attacks, and his ability to do anything at all.
Static's powers are also impotent against anyone or anything that is completely insulated from electrical energy.

Bio:
A 15 year-old teenager, Virgil Hawkins was being tormented by a bully when he finally decided to get some payback. Aquiring a gun from his friend, he went to the biggest gang showdown in Dakota City.
This event ultimately came to be known as the so-called "Big Bang". Virgil was exposed to a form of experimental tear gas, and when the agency behind the experiment tried to capture him, he fought back, discovering that he had gained the ability to generate, manipulate, and control electromagnetism.

It was at this point he decided to use his new-found powers to fight crime, under the guise of 'Static'.

During the day, Virgil attends Hemmingway High, along with his friends Frieda Goren, Richard 'Rick' Stone, Larry Wade, Chuck, Felix and Daisy Whatkins.
Despite having a life-long crush on Frieda, their relationship remains plutonic, and Static ends up becoming romantically involved with Daisy.
Static then suffers all the tribulations of attempting to fit his crime-fighting career, his homework, and his girlfriend, all into his life.

Notes:
Static was created by Dwayne McDuffie, Denys Cowan, Derek T. Dingel, and Michael Davis. Originally, Static was written as a character exclusive to the so-called "Milestone Universe", which was not narratively linked to the DC Universe. However, just as the television series eventually showed Static to be a part of the same universe as the Justice League, the comic Static is now a fixture of the DCU. According to a Dan DiDio announcement at the 2008 San Diego Comic Con, Static is to beome a part of the Teen Titans in 2009. His first appearance as a feature of the DCU was supposed to have been Terror Titans #1, according to Sean McKeever. The character had occasionally guest-starred in Milestone/DCU crossovers in the 1990s, but Terror Titans #3 marked the start of Static's residency in the DCU.

First Appearance: Static (1993) #1
