First Look: Static in the DC Universe
Terror Titans #3, page 22The rollout of the Milestone characters in the DC Universe begins this week in Terror Titans #3, and DC has provided Newsarama with a first look at the issue’s last page – the DCU debut of Static. The solicitation for the issue reads: Written by Sean McKeever; Art and Cover by Joe Bennett and Jack Jadson Dreadbolt faces a terrible decision, and his choice could elevate him in the Clock King's eyes – but at an unthinkable cost. Meanwhile, the tournament between teen metas continues, and the fate of the winners and losers becomes clearer as the Clock King's ultimate plan comes to light. Ravager's role in the plan also becomes clearer, and she is beginning to openly rebel. So, to sweeten the deal, she is granted the honor of fighting the Dark Side Club's hidden and true champion – one she could never have expected! Static was one of the most popular characters in the original Milestone lineup, and went on to his own animated series Static Shock on Kids WB after the Milestone comic line ceased publication. At Warner Bros. animation, and under the guidance of his co-creator, Dwayne McDuffie, Static was able to interact with the animated DC Universe, meeting the Terry McGinniss Batman (Batman Beyond) as well as members of the Justice League. Static’s appearance in Terror Titans will be followed up in issue #4 before the character moves to the Teen Titans series, where he will join to the team. The bulk of the remaining Milestone characters will make their DCU debut in this month’s Justice League of America #27, written by McDuffie.
