You’ve been waiting for his comeback for nearly a decade-and at long last, the most famous face of the Milestone Universe has made his shocking return! Bullied nerd Virgil Hawkins wasn’t the kind of kid you’d normally find on the streets at a protest-but like everyone else in the city of Dakota, he was fed up. Unfortunately, the first time he stood up to raise his voice, the world turned upside down. The experimental tear gas released that day left some of his classmates maimed or dead…but it left Virgil, and others, with stunning new abilities. Virgil has power inside him now-real power, the ability to channel and manipulate electromagnetic fields-but there’s anger burning inside him, too. What is he supposed to do about all of this?

A dynamic creative team of new comics voices and Milestone Media veterans have joined forces to open up a fresh chapter in the story of the most iconic Black teen superhero in comics history! Collects Milestone Returns: Infinite Edition #0 and Static: Season One #1-6.
