Note from Omnifarious webpage on DC Animated Universe Wiki website:

In Milestone Media, Alva's children did not appear until after a reformed Edwin Sr. died a heroic death. Sabrina, the eldest, was not content with her father's will -- everything went to Curt Metcalf -- but Edwin Jr. was. He became an ally of Hardware. Like many characters in Static Shock, there are no similarities beyond the name.
