Not sure how I missed this. I’m a huge fan of this style, and feel that every tv series spun out of Batman TAS deserves to be available on DVD. I’ve been waiting for news of Static Shock for so long, apparently Zeta had completely slipped off and under my radar.
Zeta Project tells the story of a hunter/killer robot who gains a sense of self and morality, on the run from those who built it, while looking for his creator to find his purpose. As the box says, the character first appeared in Batman Beyond (episode: Zeta). Fans know that there was a cross-over later, between the two shows, with Batman Beyond guest starring on Zeta Project. Later, the Justice League shows used "Zeta Trainer" robots for training, as shown in two episodes which both featured Supergirl (Fearful Symmetry, Far From Home).

This week, Season 1 of Zeta Project arrives on DVD. As a fan, I couldn’t be happier. And it makes me more encouraged that Static Shock will eventually find its way to DVD as well.

The Zeta Project: Season 1
Oh yeah. Toys. I’d like to see Mattel sneak Zeta – taken right from the cover of the DVD set – into their JLU line. Along with this guy, IU7. The IU7 was sent after Zeta to capture/destroy him.
