"Fallen Hero" is the fourth episode of the fourth season of Static Shock. It first aired on February 7, 2004. It is a crossover with Justice League, though only John Stewart appears in it.

Plot

Static is distraught at the news of his hero, Green Lantern, going on a rampaging crime spree. When Green Lantern comes to Dakota, Static confronts him. Despite Lantern insisting it's a misunderstanding, Static dutifully helps put Green Lantern in jail, though it discourages him on a personal level, as he so looked up to the Emerald Knight. Static later discovers Green Lantern's power ring in his own pocket and goes to talk to the disgraced hero. Static realizes that the one on a rampage is actually Sinestro disguised as Green Lantern, using power absorbed from his stolen power battery. After Sinestro masqueraded as Green Lantern and fought Static, he left the powerless real Green Lantern behind to take the fall. Static teams up with his fallen hero and provides a power source for Green Lantern to recharge his ring. Together, the heroes take down Sinestro and expose him as the culprit. With Green Lantern's reputation preserved and Static's own faith restored in his hero, Static and Green Lantern salute each other as respected comrades and bid one another farewell.

Quotes

Robert Hawkins: Virgil, he's not perfect, he's only human. But it never hurts to keep an open mind.


Gear: Who knew he could turn so evil? We should have been able to tell somehow!
Static: Hey, what chance did we have if he could fool Batman?


John Stewart: In brightest day, in blackest night,
No evil shall escape my sight.
Let those who worship evil's might
Beware my power, Green Lantern's light!
Gear: Whoa. We really need an oath.
