!!For [[ComicBook/{{Static}} the comic book]]:
* ExecutiveMeddling: The 2011 series was unfortunately rifled with this, with much of John Rozum's ideas being shot down in favor of Scott [=McDaniel=]'s. What resulted was the series getting cancelled after 8 issues, and effectively forcing Static and the rest of Milestone into comic book limbo.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Geoff Johns wanted to include Static during his 2003 relaunch of ''[[ComicBook/TeenTitans Teen Titans]]'' but was denied due to legal reasons.
** Static was also set to appear in ''VideoGame/{{Injustice 2}}'', but [[http://variety.com/2017/biz/news/dwayne-mcduffie-reginald-hudlin-milestone-media-1202512743/ lawsuits]] and other legal red tape over Milestone's [=IP=]s killed that plan. One of the game's designers [[http://www.cbr.com/injustice-2-static-concept-art/ revealed what his new costume would have looked like]] had he made it into the game.

!!For [[Film/{{Static}} the film]]:
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Rescued. WordOfGod from creator Mark Romanek was that he considered the film an "immature, sophomore effort" that is unrepresentative of his directorial abilities. VHS and Lasercdisc releases existed; but became increasingly difficult to find. Romanek eventually relented; and the film was released on DVD in 2007, and is still available.
