Static Shock’s third season zaps its way onto DVD
Fans are finally going to get the opportunity to own the third season of KidsWB’s Static Shock animated series next week. Released as part of Warner Archive’s line of manufacture-to-order DVDs, the set will launch on January 30th at a $24.99 MSRP. It’ll include the show’s complete 13 episode third season.
Static Shock’s third season arrives dynamically double-charged as a new hero joins Static in his fight to protect Dakota, while the rookie hero demonstrates big-league-level experience.
Virgil’s journey to the hero elites begins with a Bat-bang as Static travels to Gotham City in pursuit of a Bang Baby that’s fallen in with some seductively sinister “big sisters” – the Gotham City sirens Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn. But a Batman (and Alfred) assist is waiting in the wings. Then, Richie’s knack for invention is revealed to be a Bang Baby by-product, and Richie becomes the high-tech hero Gear. But that’s just the start to a season that sees Static in Africa alongside African super hero Anansi, plus our hero battling Brainiac alongside the Justice League and tackling Toyman with Big Blue himself, Superman. The season’s end sees Static shaken to the core as he travels to the recent past to revisit the night he lost his mother.
Adapted from the Milestone Media/DC Comics superhero Static, the Static Shock animated series ran for four seasons and 52 episodes on the KidsWB between September 2000 and May 2004. The show was produced by DC Comics and Warner Bros. Animation.
Warner Archive previously released season one on March 28, 2017. The second season followed on May 23rd. A release for the fourth season has yet to be announced.
