    The long-awaited home video release of the first season of Static Shock is here in a new two-disc DVD collection from Warner Archive!

    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Static Shock: The Complete First Season
    Studio:
    Warner Archive
    Available to Order: March 28th, 2017

    Synopsis: Based on characters from the DC Comics series, superhero Virgil Hawkins and his classmates confront real problems and issues faced by today's teens: peer pressure, gangs and growing up in an ethnically diverse, urban neighborhood.

    Meet Virgil Hawkins, a mild-mannered teen in the wrong place at the wrong time when a chemical explosion rocks the streets of Dakota City- changing him from supergeek to super-hero. Based on the Milestone/DC Comics property, this animated series about the adventures of the first African-American teenage superhero follows quick-witted Virgil, who finds himself imbued with electromagnetic superpowers after being exposed to a mutagenic gas. Taking on the guise of Static, an urban hero of his own creation, he must learn to control his powers, figure out how to patrol the skies at night and still make it home in time to study for school. Virgil's greatest discovery becomes the real "charge" he gets out of helping people and making a positive difference as a super-hero in his community. The series confronts real problems and issues faced by today's kids, including peer pressure, gangs and growing up in an ethnically diverse urban neighborhood.

    I hope I get mine today. I ordered from Amazon just like Zeta Project Season 2, but that took days to arrive. I even have Prime free 2 day shipping. Do you think it could be because this is a MOD release?

    Perhaps they had a larger order than expected for this? I have to say this show holds up way better than I remember. Not every episode is a home run but the character work on the show is really great. Virgil and his family have a great dynamic and Virgil's friendship with Richie is adorable. It's a great show that I wish I gave a closer look at when I was younger. I caught all the episodes I could especially the crossover ones, but if I missed one I didn't mind. I'm glad I get to see these again.

    It was great to sit down and rewatch these first episodes of the series. Like Splinter said, not all were great but still the characters! Though I admit, the one thing that bugged me a little was the direction they took with Edwin Alva and taking his edge away with Junior. It was also nice to see both discs had subtitles whereas the TZP season 2 set didn't have any at all. Can't wait for them to announce the season 2 release officially. :D

    Here's hoping seasons 3-4 get released within the year!
