    Harsh Truths last edited by lordhater1 on 09/30/22 08:50AM View full history

    Static has faced some of the most merciless and deadly villains that both New York City and Dakota City have to offer, but now he finds himself face-to-face with a woman who holds his future in her hands and has the power to destroy it: the school psychologist! In one conversation that covers his new life in NYC and the life he left behind, we'll get new insights into what makes Virgil Hawkins tick. And maybe Virgil hasn't been as careful at hiding his secret identity as he thought.
    Note: Apart from Static, all characters tagged appear in flashback only.

    Static; a Memorial 0

    A way to end a series killed by bad writers, this comic really should have been earlier on, it would have taken care of the problem of how the old writers did not go and explain Static's past for new fans.However, the use of various old Static looks, his original and the one that made him famous in the Cartoon series (And should have been used in the series), is good, as well as using images of old Milestone faves Icon, Holocaust, and even Dusk.....the last one in particular was unexpected.Liste...
