Doom Patrol

DC Comic’s original Doom Patrol first appeared in My Greatest Adventure #80 (June 1963), and was created by writers Arnold Drake and Bob Haney, and artist Bruno Premiani. Doom Patrol are a group of super-powered misfits whose “gifts” caused them alienation and trauma. Dubbed the “World’s Strangest Heroes”, the original team included the Chief (Niles Caulder), Robotman (Cliff Steele), Elasti-Girl (Rita Farr), and Negative Man (Larry Trainor) with additional members Beast Boy (Garfield Logan) and Mento (Steve Dayton) joining soon after. The original series was canceled in 1968 with the team killed off. Since then, there have been six Doom Patrol series, with Robotman as the only character to appear in all of them.
