STATIC SHOCK UPDATE
Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy will be villains in the upcoming third season of Kids' WB!'s Static Shock.
The pair will be featured in what will likely be the season opener as Static teams up with Batman. It will mark the second animated meeting of the characters; Batman and Robin were featured in the second season of the show.
Unlike last season, this season's Batman episode will be focused in Gotham City.
Kids' WB! has not announced when the third season will begin - it is expected next month - or what time period Static Shock will occupy.
Look for more Static Shock news next week here in The Continuum.
