Marvin Roper, better known Replikon, is a Bang Baby and a villain in Static Shock.
He is voiced by rapper Coolio.
He and his friend Adam Evans once worked as stock clerks in a music store called Stone Gas Records. However, Marvin’s music was not on the same level as Adam’s, as per Adam’s remark of “We just jammed sometimes after work, until I figured out he was all talk and no walk.” This prevented the two from working together.
After the Big Bang, Marvin gained the ability to shape-shift, and called himself Replikon, while Adam gained the power to stretch his body (while calling himself Rubberband Man).
Using his powers, he tries to get a record deal with Lester Biggs and ruin Adam’s record deal, but was initially unsuccessful.
Marvin kidnapped AJ McLean (of the Backstreet Boys) and posed as him to succeed in his scheme. Static noticed that Marvin was posing AJ when he saw that AJ’s tattoos were on the wrong side. Static arrived at the old music store that Marvin and Adam once worked at. There, Static defeated Replikon with the help of AJ. Marvin was later arrested.
