Dwayne McDuffle was born and raised in Detroit Michigan on February 20, 1962 but sadly past away on February 21, 2011 due to his heart. Dwayne graduated from the University of Michigan in 1983 with his bachelor's and would later to work with Milestone comics where he could express a multicultural sensibility that he felt was missing in comics.
after he mad static shock DC brought the rights to Milestone comics and all it's characters so static was in a weird position where he people didn't know if he was apart of DC but he would make a cameo in the TV shows and DC characters would also come into his show.
static can be compared to Kamila as such they both are trapped to live this double life because of their cultural beliefs and how people react to them on a daily bases. For example Kamila has to be a obedient girl but still has to be a super hero where as static has to deal with racism and inequality and have to not let that effect his super hero work
