* 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.

* OneOfUs: 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.

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''. A [[http://deadline.com/2014/10/warner-bros-digital-slate-mortal-combat-static-shock-akiva-goldsman-856922/ live action series]], directed by Creator/ReginaldHudlin, is currently in the works.

Added DiffLines:

* RoguesGalleryTransplant: Holocaust was chiefly a ''ComicBook/BloodSyndicate'' villain, but Dakotaverse characters freely intermingled.

* TheObiWan:
** ComicBook/BlackLightning becomes this to Static, since he no longer is an active superhero, working in Washington.
** Hardware is this in the new 52, providing Static his suit and flying discs, acting as MissionControl sometimes, and joining the fight occasionally.

* 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

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.
