** When Richie brings up the thought of Virgil being a Super Hero, It's clear that Virgil didn't even think of that and immediately jumped to the idea. Most of the people who were involved of the Big Bang either decide to use them for selfish reasons or downright villainy, but Virgil must have been the first one to think "I can be a Super Hero!"

* Virgil's mom in "Flashback". Despite now knowing that she'll die on that fateful day five years ago thanks to a time-traveling Static revealing her fate, she still decides to risk her life to help the injured. One thing that does change the timeline is Virgil's mom talking about Virgil makes her proud to have a son. Her actions finally help Virgil find peace with her mom's death.

* Rubberband Man vs Ebon. When Ebon tries to get Rubberband Man to let him off from his crimes. Trying to use the excuse that their family-and because of such, RBM should let him go free to do as he pleases. Rubberband Man in a moment of awesomeness-saying that doing what's right and following the law, is more important.

** Another awesome moment for Rubberband Man: Near the end of "Where the Rubber Meets the Road", a fusion reactor is on the verge of going critical, and the only one close enough to attempt to disarm it is Rubberband Man. He normally wouldn't be able to read the directions due to having dyslexia, except that he's developed a neat trick (involving stretching part of his arm to match the writing and reading it in a fashion similar to Braille) to get around it. The trick works right up to the last step, when he hits a word that he can't make sense of... at which point, good old fashion deductive logic kicks in: he knows from the rest of that step that the last word is either "clockwise" or "counter-clockwise" and it's too long for the former. By the time Static and Gear arrive to help, he tosses them the now-disarmed core. Overcomes his biggest personal issue ''and'' saves the city... not too shabby.

* Sinestro in ''Fallen Hero'': Right after Green Lantern tells him that he'll never get the power of his ring, Sinestro whips out a keychain with 12 Lantern rings attached, making it clear that [[EvilIsPetty he's ruining Stewart's life for nothing but a souvenir]].

* It almost goes without saying, but Virgil when he first becomes Static. He quickly gets a feel for his new powers and decides to become a superhero with them. He really deserved being a part of the DCAU and becoming one of Earth's mightiest heroes.

--> '''Shiv''': (Sneaking up on what he assumes is Richie in hiding) You're not Kangorr... GOT YA! ...Huh?\\
'''Richie''': (Suddenly appearing behind Shiv) Nope. Got YOU.
* Another Richie/Gear CMOA is when he defeated Brainiac with POP MUSIC. Brainiac then epicly one-upped him by declaring he would be back to "lay the funk DOOOOWN."
* Static turning SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker's own joke against him. (Joker pretended he was injured so he could attack Franchise/{{Batman}} with his joybuzzer.) A hand grabs the Joker's, setting off the electricity from the buzzer..Joker laughs, thinking he pulled one over on Batman ("Hahahahehehe, got you!")... But, much to his surprise, it wasn't Batman. It was [[EpicFail Static that he]] [[ShootingSuperman tried to electrocute.]] He then goes: "That was fun. Now let me try!" and sends a big shock into the Joker, who passes out. Even better, this impressed BATMAN! (''"Not bad."'') Virgil appropriately grins at the compliment given to him by the Goddamn Dark Knight!

** And then he does it again in the {{WesternAnimation/Batman Beyond}} episode with one of the Jokerz. Very nonchalantly, at that.

* Virgil when he first becomes Static!

Trying to use the excuse that their family-and because of such, RBM should let him go free to do as he pleases.

'''Rubberband-Man''': And what's ''right and wrong'' is thicker than blood!
** Not only does he beat Ebon, but Rubberband-Man has a throwaway line, "Always could take him" implying that not only is he genuinely stronger than Ebon, he was stronger before the big bang too. Nice shot for the little brother.
* Another crossover episode with Batman. They're trying to find a "bang baby" who got caught up with the wrong crowd, the wrong crowd being Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy. So they're fighting on a ship in the harbor and Harley is dodging everything Static throws at her, taunting him all the while. What does Static do? He charges up and ''zaps the entire ship in one shot''. Harley gets lit up like a neon sign in Vegas. "Wait for it," indeed.
** In the same episode, Static having the guts to actually [[WhatTheHellHero call Batman out]] on his modus operandi. Batman wanted to track down and arrest the innocent Bang Baby because "she left us for dead". Static knows that she is a teenager going through a rough time and flat out tells Batman he's wrong about something.

-->'''Batman:''' The kid's got style.
* In "Blast From The Past" when Sparky bails Static and Soul Power out after Professor Menace drains their electricity. With a cry of "Soul Power!" the three superheroes recharge in a blast of ShockAndAwe that ''blows the roof off of the building they're standing in''. Also when they track down Menace and stomp his giant KillerRobot as Soul Power faces down Menace.

* In Sheback, Shebang is captured by the villains, largely because of her carelessness. She manipulates Ebon (who is angry at being usurped) into attacking the new leader; the end result? Ebon is out cold and the new leader is in a weakened enough state for Static and Richie to take her down.
* The episode with Guest-star Romeo has him outsmarting Leech--who is capable of absorbing meta-human powers ''including Static's''--by remembering a very [[ChekhovsSkill important thing about electricity]]. Having dressed as Static (which gives him some electrical powers but not to Static's extent) uses it to activate the sprinklers and short circuits the villain.

** Double awesome moment for Richie when you think about the kind of environment he must've been raised in, [[IAmNotMyFather being as open minded as he wound up]] was an achievement in itself. [[TurnOutLikeHisFather especially considering how a lot of people take after the mindsets they're exposed to as children]]
