* GreenThumb, The Botanist, who, similar to Poison Ivy, controls plants.



* PowerParasite: Prometheus, a villain who is especially dangerous because he drains Static's electricity, meaning he can't just blast him into submission.
* PsychicBlockDefense: He has a resistance toward mental intrusion. The Swarm was quickly forced out of his head after it attempted to invade his mind. And even the ''Anti Life Equation'' failed to permanently enslave him.



* SuperHero

to:

* SuperHeroSuperHero: Arguably the Milestone poster boy.


Added DiffLines:

* ThePowerOfBlood: Doctor Kilgore, an immoral hospital physician injects himself with Virgil's metahuman blood, and gains the power to project energy blasts. He obviously wants more of Virgil's blood.


Added DiffLines:

* VillainTeamUp: Again mimicking Spider Man, the Villains Prometheus, Dr Kilgore, the Botanist, the Swarm, Rubberband Man, and Jump team up to take out their collective grudge on Static in a very Sinister Six type fashion.

*AbhorrentAdmirer: The Swarm, a hivemind of insects is in love with Virgil.



* HeroesWantRedHeads: Frieda
* ILetGwenStacyDie: [[spoiler: Larry and Dusk]]

to:

* HeroesWantRedHeads: Frieda
Virgil is initially very attracted to Frieda. However she mostly views him as a friend.
* ILetGwenStacyDie: [[spoiler: Larry Larry, Virgil's close friend and Dusk]] Dusk, who was often his partner.]]



* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Gave one to the group of tbugs who killed Larry. This was one of the very rare times that Virgil got legitimately angry at someone in a fight.



* PlayingWithFire: Two villains of Static's have this power. [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain Hotstreak]], who also uses the friction generated from his movement to gain SuperSpeed. And Holocaust who also has super strength and invulnerability. Both cause Static a ''lot'' of grief.
* ShockAndAwe

to:

grief. Burn, is a one shot villain, however.
* ShockAndAweOneOfUs: Again, Virgil, and many of his friends are huge nerds. He often plays tabletop games in a hobby shop, and bonded with BlueBeetle and Kid Devil over their shared nerdiness.
* ShockAndAwe: Though rather than simply electricity, Static manipulates electromagnetism. He commonly dips into LightningCanDoAnything, which makes sense, considering it is one of the four fundamental forces. With enough control and creativity, there isn't much the electromagnetic force can't do.

Not to be confused with either of the two Marvel Comics characters of the same name, both part of different Franchise/{{X-Men}} continuities.

Added DiffLines:

* TheSocialDarwinist: Holocaust has elements of this. His motto in life is "If you ain't taking, you're getting took," basically saying that if you don't abuse other people, then you will be abused.

* ComicBooksAreReal: An odd case. Static wasn't originally part of the DC Universe, and at one point reads some Superman comics. The obvious consequences appear when he meets the PostCrisis ComicBook/{{Superboy}} in the CrisisCrossover ''Worlds Collide.'' This is later {{Retcon}}ned so he can be included in the DCU.

** [[spoiler:Interestingly enough, the animated version doesn't retire and is still an active superhero at age 65 (which he says is the new 30). Static is mentioned to have a son, but he doesn't appear.]]

The comic was later adapted to the TV series ''WesternAnimation/StaticShock'', with some [[{{Bowdlerise}} bowdlerisation]], and revived as a Creator/DCComics series in 2011's ComicBook/{{New 52}} event, also under the name ''Static Shock'', which was canceled after eight issues. Crossing over from his own show, Static guested on ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited''. He also was a recurring character in the second season of ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice''.
