10 Superheroes Who Need Their Own TV Shows Now


Virgil Hawkins is an African-American teenager who, by way of radioactive gas, obtained the ability to create, absorb and manipulate electricity and magnetism, thus becoming his super alter ego, Static. Watching a teenager juggle school work, relationships, gangs and drugs, all while trying to use his powers for good? Sign us up! Whether it be a live-action portrayal set in today’s social and cultural climate or a revival of the awesome animated series Static Shock, this guy would be a welcome member of the TV superhero fraternity, especially in adding some much needed diversity. Now who would play Virgil/Static? A$AP Rocky, anyone? One can only wish. –Juan Cadavid
