Is Static Shock underrated as a cartoon?

I don't know, I always felt like it was up there with the likes of JLA, The Batman, Teen Titans and the other great animations from DC, but never received enough praise. I used to watch all episodes along with my brother and cousin. What are your thoughts?

It's great but I wouldn't say it's up there with those classics.

Maybe like a tier below them.

I watched it everyday when I got back from school. It would be talked about far more if it didn't have the bad luck of airing alongside some of the genre's best ( B:TAS, S:TAS, JL/JLU, BB, etc ).

It was hugely popular here in Brazil. I grew up watching it and loving it for most of my life!

I watched every episode. Liked the villains. Gear was a good addition.

Underrated, but not top tier. Especially for the time it came out in. Late 90s/early 2000s had some of the best cartoons. Not surprising that it gets overlooked, even with the crossovers it had.

Underrated and top tier... I was just watching clips from the show earlier and couldn't believe how much recognition it doesn't get.

If you disagree, just go look up the episode with permafrost in it...

Yep. Static Shock and X-Men: Evolution were pretty good shows that are normally ignored.

Same! Good to see the Bom Dia & Companhia gang around here.

It was a decent show not on the level of Teen Titans or Justice League Unlimited

I remember absolutely loving it

but not too long ago tried rewatching as an adult, and I didnt realize how heavy handed it was with it's after school special messages

but I'd have to watch more to really judge, since I also forgot how goofy early Teen Titans episodes were
