During the NYCC panel, Ivey brought up how Static Shock cartoons from the early 2000s never crossed over Batman Beyond. The creators are referring to the Season 4 premiere of Static Shock, an episode entitled “Future Surprises”. In the episode, young Static is launched in time to Neo-Gotham, where he meets Terry and old Bruce Wayne. “Future Shock” features the voices of Phil LaMarr as Static and Will Friedle as Terry McGinnis, and marks one of many vocal performances provided by the late Kevin Conroy as Batman Bruce Wayne.

Draper-Ivey previously released the character designs on Twitter for Static Beyond and Batman Beyond over the weekend at NYCC. While Terry’s civilian and superhero designs were nearly identical to his animated appearance, the designs for Static Beyond gave Virgil Hawkins a suit that was white, black and gold, and gave the aging hero himself a new beard and hairstyle. Variant cover for Milestone 30th Anniversary Special will feature Terry and Virgil, with Bruce Wayne also included.
