Hotstreak was the leader of one of the gangs at the Dakota docks when the Big Bang occurred, and one of Static's arch-enemies along with Ebon.


Hotstreak's status as one of Static's earliest enemies began before the Big Bang even occurred. Francis Stone, also known as F-Stop, was a vicious bully gang leader, who targeted Virgil Hawkins, leading to his brief involvement with a rival gang.

After the Big Bang, Hotstreak was arrested and then taken to the hospital. He escaped from the hospital shortly thereafter in a fiery scene, and took off to take advantage of his new powers.

When Dr. Todd’s Bang Baby cure was threatening to remove their powers, Hotstreak teamed up with Ebon to steal the last of the Bang Baby gas.

Ebon and Hotstreak fought over the final vial of gas and became merged into one giant Bang Baby—throwing shadows and fire all over Dakota’s docks. With Static and Gear being the only two remaining Bang Babies, they were able to take down Ebon and Hotstreak—but whether they’re still lurking somewhere in Dakota’s waters is unknown.

Powers and abilities

After his exposure to the Quantum Vapor and complimenting his fiery temper, Francis Stone became a pyrokinetic: he gained the ability to create and project fire from his body. He could also absorb a seemingly infinite amount of fire into his body.

By projecting a stream of fire behind him, he could boost his jumps. Hotstreak could also fly short distances.

Personality and Traits

Although Hotstreak was a criminal, his desires were seldom power or wealth; most often, he just did what he felt as it befit his fiery personality. What made him dangerous was his wanton disregard for anything, or anyone else. Ironically, he could be considered a "hot head" way before he even gained his powers, as he is quick to anger.

He had a fear of hospitals since he had spent over two years in one when he was a kid.[2]
