For the comic book:
- Executive Meddling: 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.
- What Could Have Been: Geoff Johns wanted to include Static during his 2003 relaunch of Teen Titans but was denied due to legal reasons.
For the film:
- Keep Circulating the Tapes: Rescued. Word of God 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.
