Static fights his first super villain Hotstreak.
At the end of this episode we see a character sketch of what Hotstreak would have originally looked like.He would have had flaming hair.
In the comics, Hotstreak had the name "Hotstreak" because he ran at superspeed, which made him gain heat. He then threw the heat to get rid of it. Hence the name, Hotstreak.
The same sequence of Virgil choking when fighting Hotstreak happened in the comics, except after Static was beating, Frieda went to his aid, and pulled off his mask, learning that he was Virgil.
Static keeps using his powers to throw metallic objects against Hotstreak.Did Static forget he can just shock Hotstreak.
How dumb is Hotstreak?Static calls him by his new name but Hotstreak hasn't told anyone his new name yet but Virgil,Richie,and Frieda.Yet he doesn't even think Virgil can be Static.Also Hotstreak saw Virgil at the docks the night of the big bang.
