Following the Big Bang, Jefferson tried hard to keep the attention off Alva Industries. She did it as a personal favor for Alva, whose company had meant much to Dakota, and a scandal would mean massive layoffs.

The depicted subject bears the likeness of Thomasina Jefferson from the DC Comics; however, the DCAU character was never named on-screen, or otherwise. The title of this article is conjecture based on the character's likeness. In the Milestone comics, Thomasina Jefferson was a mayor struggling with gang violence. Unlike her portrayal in Static Shock, where the Big Bang is portrayed as an accident, in the comics, Jefferson was directly responsible for spiking tear gas with Quantum Juice to "solve" gang problems. Despite this becoming known, she remained mayor.
