[ Back to Episode Reviews ]
Static goes up against a speedy villain who can warp time called, uh,
Daisy is being followed by a guy from her and Virgil's science camp
called Weird Eddie. It turns out that he is working for a scientist and
has stolen his time warping machine making himself superfast which he
thinks will impress Daisy. While in a tussle with Static and Gear "Speedwarp"
messes up time so he can peek under Gear's mask, finding out his and
Static's secret identities; after losing that encounter Static and Gear
rush of to the scientist who created the time warper who tells him that
Eddie must have stolen it and that he has incriminating evidence of
this. Gear uses his data to creat a timewarp device for Static so he can
fight Speedwarp on his terms but warns that the time-belts should never
come in contact with each other. While stalking Daisy at a B2K concert
Speedwarp is confronted by Static. Speedwarp tries to takes Static's
belt and is frozen in a different time stream, moving extremely slowly.
This episode is pretty boring. Speedwarp isn't a very interesting
villain and seems like a rip-off of the Flash especially with his red
costume. I suppose it wouldn't have been so bad if Static had made a
snarky comment on their similarities but as is it seems like a cheap
The animation was okay this episode as I didn't notice any mistakes but
the time warps themselves were kind of uninteresting. I just couldn't
get into this episode and thought that it was underwhelming.
