The Chief

The Chief (Dr. Niles Caulder) is a fictional character appearing in material from DC Comics, usually as the leader of the superhero team Doom Patrol. Created by Arnold Drake and Bruno Premiani, he made his debut alongside the other original members of the Doom Patrol in My Greatest Adventure #80 (June 1963). Caulder uses his scientific knowledge to develop numerous inventions and innovations that have made him wealthy. Caulder founded and organized the team called Doom Patrol to protect the innocent and fight crime. It is Caulder’s genius that allowed the team members to survive (e.g., designing Robotman’s body, devising Negative Man’s medicated bandages), and helped grant their freakishness and amazing abilities.
