Of the beings in the Timm-verse DCAU, Static always had a special place in my heart. It may be abhorrent nostalgia, but I love the guy. When I heard he was getting his own place in the relaunch, I immediately found myself phoning my local comic shop and adding it to my pull list.
I always thought it was neat that they added Static to the DCAU even though at the time he'd only ever appeard in mainstream DCU during the Milestone/DC crossover event (at least that's all I can recall of Static actually being in the DCU before they merged him in not too long ago). I even still watched repeats of the toon up until it disappeared from Disney XD earlier this year.
I'm intrigued a bit by the new series despite never having been a huge fan of the older comics (although I did pick up the occasional odd issue when the grocery store actually got one). I won't say it's on my "Must Buy" list, but I might pick it up if I have a few extra bucks to spare when I do get to the comic shop to grab the others.
