Besides Static..and Tye becoming "Apache Chief" who are the others?The way the last episode ended I almost want to call them the Outsiders.
Virgil = Black Vulcan
Tye = Apache Chief
Eduardo = El Dorado
Asami = Samurai
They were trying to make them a less stereotypical version of those characters.
Virgil is just Static, no?
I really liked them. Seriously, the writers know how to handle these unknown underused characters so much better than DC comics.
Agreed. They've had such little screen time yet I feel like I'm more acquainted with them than I am a lot of the team members introduced at the start of season 2.
@SupBatz: Yes, but Virgil is meant to be a stand in for Black Vulcan. But he is indeed his own character.
Those characters were meant to add ethnic diversity to the show, but they ended up looking stereotypical.
I don't think I agree with you about Virgil being Black Vulcan. Black Vulcan himself was just a stand-in for Black Lightning on the Super Friends show (Black Lightning couldn't be used due to a legal dispute I believe.) Black Lightning and Static Shock are both different characters altogether. Virgil has the same name, color scheme, and powers as Static Shock. I realize that the other characters are teammates of Black Vulcan, but I think that's where the evidence of Virgil being a stand-in for Black Vulcan end. The only similarities the characters share are that they are both black, and have electricity or lightning based powers. But then again, Young Justice takes place in a continuity completely stand-alone and separate from the mainstream. Hell, they split up Red Arrow and Arsenal into 2 different characters! So maybe Virgil is more of an amalgamation of Black Vulcan and Static Shock.
@Fallen_Crippled: Are you kidding, when he went over the ledge on his skateboard and then teleported behind that group of guards and tossed them over was brilliant!
I actually enjoyed that scene. However, I am just not a very big fan of him. I feel like everyone else has a power that can stand out, or is just unique with their personalities. Eduardo (I believe is the name of the teleporting guy) doesn't stand out as much as the others to me. I do like him, just not as much as the others.
