Miss watching the Static Shock cartoon? Back in the day, Static Shock was a dope cartoon in the early 2000s ( damn, I’m old!) that lasted a few years on-air. It disappeared and fans have been trying to get the series available again. My homie, Bobby over at the GNP Project is one of the biggest fans of the Static cartoon I’ve ever met. I’m sure he’ll be happy to see this.
Static Shock’s second season comes supercharged with new, dangerous metahuman menaces, an array of special guest stars, and more of its unique mix of high adventure and social drama. The stakes are higher as Static gets drafted into “The Big Leagues” when the dynamic duo – Batman and Robin – travel to Dakota in search of The Joker (Mark Hamill). “Uncle J” to the metahumans, The Joker is wreaking his own special brand of “hilarious” havoc on the citizens of Dakota, giving Static (Phil LaMarr) the opportunity of a lifetime – to team up with his favorite superhero! Other superstar surprises this season include Static stints from none other than hoop hall-of-famer Shaquille O’Neal (Steel, 1997) and the Backstreet Boys’ A.J. McLean, on hand to lend some music career advice to Rubberband Man. Things get a little more serious in the special episode entitled “Jimmy,” which addresses the issue of gun violence in school.
The two-disc Static Shock: The Complete Second Season will arrive on DVD in North America on May 23rd.
