"Future Shock" is an episode of Static Shock from season 4 episode 40, which crosses over with Batman Beyond, a show which had ended two years earlier. It first aired on January 17, 2004.


Batman, Robin and Static stop a criminal named Timecode. In the Batcave, Batman tries to secure Timecode's time machine and is caught in a time field. Static tries to save him but is caught in the field instead and sent 40 years into the future. Still in the Batcave he meets the Future Batman, Terry McGinnis, who at first thinks he's an enemy. The older Bruce Wayne appears and tells both of them to calm down and that he's been expecting Virgil since the accident. Bruce wants Static to help them with Kobra (A major criminal organization bent on ruling the world in Batman Beyond.) Kobra has kidnapped the Static of that era and they want to trade him for their Kobra Leader.

Terry is reluctant to work with the younger version of Static, but goes along with it. They go undercover to meet a contact of Bruce Wayne who might have information on Kobra's current hideout.On the way Terry tells Virgil he has a son. The person doesn't show up, but Virgil thinks he's found another contact instead. The false contact is a Jokerz member and leads them into an ambush and Virgil uses his powers to defeat them. Meanwhile, the Kobra Leader escapes from the police and returns to his headquarters to kill the older Static. The young Static is tired of arguing with Terry and goes back to Dakota to the Gas Station of Solitude. Batman goes with him and they discover a secret underground entrance.

Static finds a message from an older (and fatter) Gear, telling him to meet him. Batman tells Static it couldn't be the real Gear, because Wayne sent him on a secret mission that only he knew about. They trace the call to the Kobra headquarters and find the older Static locked in a stasis field. The Kobra Leader is about to kill Static when his younger self stops him. Batman battles with the Leader while Static tries to free his older self from stasis. After fighting the Leader and his followers he manages to free himself and the older Static stops Kobra easily. After that, the younger Static begins to fade from the future and back to his real time.
