Doom Patrol will reimagine the Doom Patrol of DC Comics fame, comprised of Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Girl, and Crazy Jane. On the show, the team is led by a 21st century mad scientist named Dr. Niles Caulder, a.k.a. The Chief. These characters possess a variety of superpowers as we’d expect of most comic superheroes, but they didn’t get their powers without suffering big losses. They are scarred, disfigured, and traumatized after suffering through horrible incidents that resulted in their superpowers. Understandably unhappy after having their lives changed so radically against their wills, the characters weren’t the most upbeat… until The Chief brought them together to investigate bizarre phenomenon, giving them a purpose and a reason to use their powers for good.
