There were a few {{crossover}}s between ''Static Shock'' and other [[Franchise/{{DCAU}} DC Animated Universe]] series, despite the fact that the original Milestone comics weren't set in [[Franchise/TheDCU the DCU]]. Early episodes seemed to portray characters like Comicbook/{{Superman}} to be fictional; in the second season, however, they had the two-parter "The Big Leagues", a crossover with ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' where the Joker comes to Dakota, with the Dark Knight soon on his heels. Later episodes also featured [[WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries Superman]], the WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague, a separate appearance by GreenLantern John Stewart, an episode based around a Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy team-up and even a trip to the future of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'', where Static meets his future self (now considered one of the most powerful heroes on the planet). Going the other way, Static himself (his future self, anyway) makes an appearance in the ''[[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Justice League Unlimited]]'' first season finale.

* BroadStrokes: The show 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.

''Static Shock'' is an animated series based on the Creator/MilestoneComics series ''ComicBook/{{Static}}''. Created by [[Creator/DwayneMcDuffie Dwayne McDuffie]], it is one of the rare instances where a comic book's creator was also the main creative force behind the animated adaptation. The main character, Virgil Hawkins, is the son of a man who runs a youth center. When a bunch of [[SuperSerum experimental gas]] explodes, it [[MassSuperEmpoweringEvent grants him and some other teenagers a wide variety of offbeat superpowers]] (it also mutates various animals and at least one fungus). This event is later referred to as "the Big Bang" and the mutant [[DifferentlyPoweredIndividual metahumans]] are known as "Bang Babies," as the Big Bang was the start of their new lives.

* AnAesop: One episode, "Jimmy", focuses around the title character, who's being bullied and brings a gun to school to defend himself, though Richie ends up being accidentally shot and wounded in the leg. After the episode ends, Virgil narrates a PSA about gun safety, especially with regards to not bringing them to school. The kicker? It begins with the aforementioned bullied kid being led out of the school gym (where the climactic scene took place) in handcuffs by police. Much of the first season had these. The troubles and realities of runaways and the homeless, the dangers of gang activities, and dealing with the loss of loved ones among other things. Unfortunately, these didn't exactly get a lot of views, [[TeamUpSeries so the producers shifted to teaming with famous DC icons]] [[PanderingToTheBase in order to salvage ratings.]] Sadly, it didn't work.
