I enjoyed the episode but I did have a couple of problems. Like GMahler says the villian was an obvious rip-off of Flash (espescially the costume.) This wouldn't have been a big deal if Virgil or Richie had made a snarky comment on it. ("Do you and Flash go to the same tailor? Or are you just unimaginative?")
I also had a few problems with some loose ends. Static wrecks half the mall with no consequenses. Did Daisy keep the stolen necklace? It seems she was friendly with the lady at the store and I can't imagine her just keeping it but it really needed to be tied up. Can Dwayne McDuffie assure me that our hero's girlfriend did the right thing in the end?
One last problem. B2K's lipsynching did not match up with the singing at all.
Things I liked:
-Daisy. We haven't really seen her this year except in non-speaking cameos. I always thought she was a sweet girl who brought out the best in Static.
-I like how Speedwarp found out Static's identity through no fault of Richie or Virgil. Static and Gear have been sloppy in the past but there was no way they could've prevented this. Character growth? Yay!
-B2K's appearance wasn't jarring and they didn't hijack the episode (like certain musical and basketball stars have in the past.)
-I was really curious how Static was actually going to defeat Speedwarp. I was sweating for a minute there. Bonus: The resolution made a lot of sense. The Doc giving Static timewarp powers was logical and Speedwarp freezing time for himself was poetic justice.
-Oh and the CGI animation was mad cool. In fact all of the animation in this ep was stellar.
All in all, a very good episode. ***1/2
