* BroadStrokes: The show is different of its source material in many respects.was originally supposed to be a separate continuity from the Franchise/{{DCAU}}, as evidenced by having Superman and others mentioned as if they were fictional within the show's universe. However, later episodes featured crossovers with ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'', ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', and ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'', which would indicate that the older episodes happened, but without the references to the DC heroes being fictional.

** In "Aftershock", Virgil goes to the doctor to tell him about the changes his body is going through. The doctor tells him the changes are normal and asks if there is another person involved. Virgil replies with "lots of 'em", which then causes the doctor to ask if Virgil's father is aware of this. It is clear that the doctor initially thought that Virgil was describing puberty and had been sleeping around.

However, after Daisy is introduced, she quickly becomes superfluous to both the plot of the show and the relationships between the characters (only becoming best friends with Daisy herself).

* IronicNickname: Static, ostensibly, refers to static electricity. It can also mean something fixed or stationary, lacking movement or vitality, or showing little change. Virgil is none of those things, in either the comics or TV series. In fact, the only time this was actually the case was when his powers first manifest, resulting in a severe case of static cling with his bed sheets.

* TheJailer: Leech, who kidnaps and holds captive other "Banged" super-humans, the reason being his Bang-induced powers is the ability to assimilate those of others - temporarily. (Kind of like Superman's foe Parasite, but it only works on Bang Babies). Victims include the criminals Ebon, Talon, and Hotstreak, but he seriously messes up when he tried to go after Static himself, grabbing rapper and SpecialGuest Lil' Romeo instead, who is wearing a Static costume.
