Static ends the first season with a metahuman battle royale

0

The first season of Static’s new DC Comics title is coming to an end, and the publisher has released the first look at the inside pages that tease a metahuman battle royale. Static: Season 1 was the first book to come out of Milestone’s new line of comics. Join Static: Season 1 are Material: Season 1 and Icon & Rocket: Season 1. All three series take a seasonal approach to their broadcast schedules, similar to how a TV show is divided into multiple seasons. Writer Vita Ayala and artist Nikolas Draper-Ivey form the creative team of Static, which gave Virgil Hawkins an updated origin story.

Preview pages for Static: Season 1 #6 by Nikolas Draper-Ivey shows Virgil and his friends getting into it with other teenage metahumans. DC is also teasing Static’s costume displaying “final form,” so that’s something fans will want to keep an eye out for when the issue drops on Tuesday, February 22.

As for Static finally meeting the other heroes of the Dakotaverse, Icon and rocket co-writer Reginald Hudlin teased the possibility of a Milestone crossover event.

“Well, it really started with me, Denys [Cowan] and Derek [Dingle], when we decided to relaunch Milestone Media as a company,” Hudlin explained. “One of the first things we said was that we’re not going to be a nostalgic company, stuck in the past, talking about the good old days. Milestone succeeded because it was state of the art. So if we were going to replicate the successful formula of why Milestone works, we had to be at the forefront of this generation, which meant finding new voices, like Leon [Chills]; like Vita and Nikolas who write and draw Static shock; like Brandon [Thomas], who is writing Equipment. Having these new voices in there feels like Denys and I had a pretty strong vision of what we wanted these characters to do and how to reintroduce them into the world. Corn [we’re] so happy to see these writers take those initial ideas and really run with them and take them to exciting new places and extraordinary executions. So, it’s just a great team of people, all working. And there is an overview we have in mind for all the storylines and the characters will cross paths at certain times, at the same time, you can read it every series of books and enjoy it, and not feel like, ‘Oh, I don’t know what’s going on. You’ll know what’s going on by reading Icon and rocket, but we think you are reading Icon and rocket, you’ll want to see these other books.”

There are already Season 2 plans for Static, Icon & Rocket, and Hardware. Additionally, a brand new Blood Syndicate a comic book series is currently in the works, and a Milestone anthology, titled Milestone Compendium 1, will be released in February.

Static: Season 1 #6 goes on sale February 22. The covers and inside pages can be found below.
