Up All Night
VIRGIL (aka STATIC) can do amazing things with his vast array of electrical abilities, but instantly mending a broken heart isn't in his skill set.
Virgil Hawkins has just gone through a bad break up. He can't get over his ex, so his best friend Richie has an idea for how to distract him: attend a music festival in their city of Dakota. But wouldn't you know it--his ex is in attendance. And that's just the beginning of his troubles.
A series of encounters and events leads to an all-night adventure involving super villains, a diner, a reluctant rapper, and a size-changing kleptomaniac, as well as Virgil's frequent bad decision making. But in the end, with the help of his friends, Virgil will find he can move on from a broken heart.
