More about “Static Shock”
The story revolves around a teen who transforms into a superhero with electromagnetic powers. The character of Static/ Virgil Hawkins first appeared in 1993’s Static Vol. 1 comic for Milestone Comics. Static achieves his superpowers after his accident with a radioactive substance. Earlier WB released an animated version of the same comic. The now-defunct Milestone label was, at the time, an outlet founded by Black writers and artists that had distribution through DC. The writer of the comic, Reginald Hudlin, will also help in re-launching Milestone with DC’s help.
Jordon has always been a lover of comic books and anime. Static Shock is his third superhero movie project. The current project offers the comic-book fanboy an affection and experience to create a magical on-screen experience for the DC fans.
