Virgil Ovid Hawkins was born to Robert and Jean Hawkins, their second child
and only son, in the city of Dakota in the midwestern United States. A
precocious child, when Virgil was nine, he lost his mother to gang violence.
As a teenager, his father founded a community center where Virgil spent most
of his time, becoming an honor roll student at school.

Plagued by bullies, Virgil made friends with one of the gangs briefly, who
tried to convince him to get rid of his gangmember bully at the Big Bang, a
huge encounter between all of Dakota's gangs, at a chemical shipping area at
the docks. During the confrontation, the police raided, and damaged the
chemicals, exposing everyone involved to a mysterious purple smoke.

Many of the people were mutated, some dying, but several surviving with
superpowers, becoming criminals. Virgil gained powers over electromagnetism,
becoming a superhero named Static with the help of his mundane friends. He
spent a few years as a teenager fighting crime, until he reached 18, and
people had grown up, moved on, and so did he.

Heading in search of newfound freedom, a need for schooling, and a search to
find out where exactly the 'Q-Juice' chemicals that transformed him came from,
he travelled over to New Jersey, attending Gotham University and frequently
taking the train to New York.

Recent Events


Virgil Hawkins is a headstrong, wisecracking young man. While he has plenty of
teenaged insecurities, such as 'am I actually funny' or 'am I really doing
well with my friends', he makes up for them by having way too much of a mouth,
constantly quipping both in mask and out, partially genuine and partially for
self-security. He's got a drive to help those in need, but he wants to look
cool while doing it, be well-liked, and be a little bit popular. He's strong
and confident, but sometimes bullish and sometimes overconfident. At his core,
though, Virgil is a guy who wants to make a difference, who feels like he has
the world on his shoulders and wants to lift it up as high as he can. That
mouth might genuinely get him hurt, though, as it has before, as will his
recklessness - charging into things he doesn't understand because he has to do
right and make a change.

Character Sheet


Static can create electrical barriers that can assist in blocking and propelling projectiles (whether metal, energy, etc), though enough force and strain can punch through them.


While he can't fly personally, Static can turn metal objects into personal hoverboards, such as trashcan lids, manholes, and metal discs, and ride them at a maximum speed of 200MPH.


Static has an innate control of electromagnetism, able to fire high-voltage static bolts and manipulate ferrous metals via generating electricity from his body. He can lift extremely heavy metal objects such as automobiles or small helicopters, reverse magnetic polarities, drain and charge electricity from objects, repel or attract metal objects, and magnetize (or demagnetize) objects. His bolts can be anywhere from 'tazer voltage' to extremely lethal bursts, and he can generate huge bursts of electricity around him when he has enough juice to run off, either forming cages or simply attacking with them. These abilities also make him generally electricity-resistant, though the abilities of fellow metahumans bypass this defense.


Static has a weak ability to manipulate electronic devices solely through touch, whether or not they are plugged in.


Static's signature ability allows him to stick people or objects to surfaces, whether floor, wall, or ceiling, via powerful static. This makes a very handy trap, and lasts for a decent while even when he's not there, though eventualy it'll wear off on its own and drop them.
