Static Shock Is A School Teacher On A Mission In This Heartfelt Fan Film

Electrogenesis may not have the slick production values of some of the fan films we’ve seen, but what it lacks in budget, it makes up for with its story of Virgil Hawkins as a teacher who has left Static behind. But when a student comes to him for help, Virgil realizes the world may still need Static.

Harjus Singh directed this Static Shock fan film, which we enjoyed (even if we’re left wondering if Static Shock’s letter of recommendation has more weight than Virgil Hawkins’). Here’s the official description:

Our film follows Virgil Hawkins at a time where he is not Static. A time between being just a normal teenager and a leader within the Justice League. It’s a journey of a man who has forgotten his destiny, to his revival as the hero he was always meant to be.

It leaves us even more excited for the Static Shock webseries that’s on the horizon.

Edit: Originally this post referred to the character as Static Shock rather than just Static. The title up top still refers to him as Static Shock to make it clear precisely who we’re talking about.

That was great! Give me characters and story over production values every damn time.

But it just serves to remind me that pretty much all of my favorite characters are owned by DC/WB, and their cinematic creative team just, well...

So many great characters, from the 40s to present day. So many great story-telling oportunies. And we get, well, 70% crap (your mileage may vary). Maybe the TV guys will take a turn at dear ol’ Static? Man, that would be so awesome...

EDIT- I’m an olde, but I wasn’t a Stan Lee/Jack Kirby kid. It was Neal Adams/Denny O’Neil all the way for me. And I’ve always considered Wildstorm the rightful heir to that throne. Just sayin’.
