DC Animated Universe

Hotstreak was the leader of one of the gangs at the Dakota docks when the Big Bang occurred, and one of Static's archenemies 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 and a gang leader, who often targeted Virgil Hawkins, leading to his brief involvement with a rival gang to get revenge.

When tensions boiled, an all-out Gang war broke out at the docks. Francis was exposed to the Quantum Vapor. After the Big Bang, Francis 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.

Adopting a new alias as Hotstreak. He plagued Dakota and came into frequent tussles with Static.

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, who were later lost at the bottom of the harbor.

It was presumed by Static and Gear that, although not seen after the battle, Hotstreak and Ebon were still alive.

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 via projecting fire streams from his hands.

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 befitted 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.[4]
