Metahumans are everywhere and most of them are doing crimes. Virgil begins to fight crime as Static, but when the bully “”F-Stop”” comes back as a metahuman himself, able to control fire, Virgil tries to beat him once and for all. “”F-Stop”” renames himself Hotstreak. Virgil also learns that Alva and the Mayor were responsible for the gas that caused the mutations, but needs to prove it. He sneaks into Alva’s office to get proof, but has to fight off one of Alva’s henchmen to get it. Later, as he fights Hotstreak again, the disk gets destroyed with all of Alva’s information on it. Static powers up and finally beats Hotstreak.
