Hotstreak was the reason Virgil got his powers in the first place and played a role in him becoming Static. But sadly, I feel he was never used to his full potential, anyone agree? If Static got a new book, how would you want to see Hotstreak portrayed? As a legit gangbanger in the cartoon with flame patterned hair, or the racist wigger gang leader from the comics who threw his flames and his weight around whenever he got the chance. How would you like to see him as a bigger threat to Static, save from just showing up, blasting a building and causing havok until he is eventually stopped?
@blackwind: I think that would be cool since he also had super speed in the Dakotaverse. However the downside was that he needed friction in order for his powers to work, therefore once he's immobilized, he's powerless. In the cartoon, the need for friction was ditched, therefore he was a lot more dangerous.
