"Child's Play" is the seventh episode of Static Shock. It first aired on December 3, 2000.
Dwayne looked up to his step brother, Aron, who just got out of juvenile hall and moved back in with them. Virgil knows Aron hadn't changed his thieving ways, and wished Dwayne didn't admire him so much.
When a water fountain suddenly gave cherry soda, and a video game character came to life, Aron and Virgil figured out that Dwayne was a bang baby. Aron tricked Dwayne into stealing things for him.
After fighting off Dwayne's bad guys as Static, Virgil tricked Aron into saying how he really felt about his little brother, and Dwayne stopped using his powers for his brother's pleasure.

Aron: We're not tight. And he's not my brother. He's just a stepbrother.
Aron: (grins) Frieda? She's gonna be there?
Aron: These stores keep the prices so high, nobody can afford to buy anything. What we don't keep, we'll give to the poor.
