Other Versions


From the DC Animated Universe, Daisy Watkins was a brilliant kid who attended the Vanmoor Institute, a school for gifted youth.

She shared a class with some friends, and was taught by the seniors. After a rousing adventure involving her hero Static, Daisy's seniors were revealed as criminals arrested. After that incident, Daisy's parents had her transferred to a safer public school, where Virgil Hawkins also attended who was Static in secret. Daisy went on to become best friends with Frieda Goren, and Shenice Vale; Daisy also became friends with Virgil Hawkins and Richie Foley too. Even though Virgil and Daisy would go on to flirt with each other, they remained friends, until later on when they decided to start dating (not knowing Virgil was actually Static).

Her admiration for Static also got her into trouble and danger on several occasions from then on. One time, her eagerness to see Static in action saving the day almost became fatal.

Static's, excessive showboating in fights with Supervillains, once caused near by debris of a building to fall on her. While she lay in a coma, Static went out to find the villains known as Puff and Onyx, who he blamed for Daisy's current state; They were eventually caught with the help of a super criminal named Rubberband Man, who also blamed Static for the accident. Static managed to overcome all of them while Daisy eventually recovered from the accident.

On another occasion during a crossover between Static and Superman; she was kidnapped by a teacher, 'Ms. Moore' who was actually an Android who called herself Darcy Mason, she was created by Toyman; one of Superman's enemies, so her body could be used as a template to create an artificial copy for 'Moore' to put her mind in for a better body, and try to escape from Toyman.

Daisy never found out that her boyfriend Virgil Hawkins was actually her hero Static, and his partner Gear was actually Richie Foley.
