If there was any series coming out on DC Universe’s streaming service that actually warranted a mature rating, its the new series, “The Doom Patrol.” Despite sharing many similarities with Marvel’s X-Men, Doom Patrol actually predates those characters by nearly three months!
Unlike DC Universe’s other original show, Titans, these characters in Doom Patrol actually have a reason to be moody and self loathing. Their gifts are less of a curse and more of a haunting reminder of the lives they used to have. Each character shares a dark aspect of their former lives that could have easily sent them over the edge to villainy had it not been for their mentor Dr. Niles Caulder aka “The Chief.”
The new extended season one trailer (as seen above) gives us new looks at Cyborg and more of the crazy action we can expect from the upcoming 15 episode season. New episodes debut each Friday on the DC Universe streaming service,
Set after the events of Titans, the Doom Patrol – consisting of Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Woman, Crazy Jane and new recruit Cyborg led by Dr. Niles Caulder – receive a mission to stop the supernatural supervillain known as Mr. Nobody from taking over the world.
