Jean Hawkins was the mother of Virgil Hawkins and Sharon Hawkins and the wife of Robert Hawkins.


Jean Hawkins was a paramedic in Dakota. She was killed during the Dakota riots from a stray bullet.

With the help from Timezone, Static traveled back in time in an attempt change the event. He spotted her just before she was about to be crushed by a collapsing wall. He rescued her and carried her to safety and revealed his identity to her as her son Virgil. After telling her he developed superpowers from the Big Bang incident and spent much of his time protecting innocent people she told him how proud she was of him. Virgil tried to tell her to stay at a rooftop to keep her safe but she disobeyed him and returned to save more lives. Still excited from learning Virgil's fate to become Static, Jean kept talking about how proud she was of him and calling him "her superhero". She did, however, not survive: she was killed by a stray bullet after all.

Given that she would have been killed by a collapsing wall if not for Virgil instead of a stray bullet, it was likely Virgil's attempt to change history was actually part of a predestination paradox.
