They say there are only two certain things in life - death, and taxes. And taxes are boring - so on this episode of Static, we talk about death. Join us as we lament the death of our favourite characters, explore donating your body to science, respawning IRL and extinct tech that just didn't deserve to die.

Heroes and villains from all over the DC Comics multiverse are part of the roster in Injustice 2 but, for the most part, they come from the well-known core of characters clustered around the Justice League. It would have been nice to get a playable fighter with roots from another fictional landscape entirely, which is what almost happened with Static.
