    The Bang Babies were created by Dwayne McDuffie, for his Milestone Comics and first appeared in Blood Syndicate #1 and Static #1.


    Bang Babies are the survivors of Dakota’s Big Bang who received superhuman powers and abilities. The Big Bang was originally suppose to be a event where each gang leaders would settle their differences on Paris Island. When Mayor Jefferson got news of this event, she ordered the police to spray a special type of tear gas that would track down the criminals. However, the tear gas contained a substance called quantum juice (or Q-juice). When exposed, most people died on the spot. Some mutated and gain superpowers. Those who survived the event were called Bang Babies.

    Team Evolution

    Because of the Big Bang, some former gang members who acquired superpowers combined into a team called the Blood Syndicate, while some gang members became supervillains. Some civilians, such as Virgil Hawkins, became a superhero.

    Milestone Returns

    The origin of Bang Babies has been retcon in 2020. Instead of survivors of a gang turf war, Bang Babies are now survivors of a Black Lives Matter protest. Other than Static, Hotstreak, and Holocaust, new Bang Babies now include some from the Static Shock animated TV series (Talon, Shiv, D-Struct, Puff, Onyx, a Serpenteen)
