Greg Berlanti is bringing ‘Doom Patrol’ to the DC Digital Platform, now called DC Universe. It is joining a growing stable of shows that include a live-action ‘Titans’ show, a revival of fan favorite animated series Young Justice called ‘Young Justice: Outsiders‘, an animated ‘Harley Quinn‘ series, a live-action ‘Swamp Thing‘ show, and ‘Metropolis‘, a live-action series a la Fox’s ‘Gotham‘.
Doom Patrol’s cast of characters included Elasti-Girl, Negative Man, Robotman and The Chief . In comic books, Doom Patrol has also included Beast Boy, Karma, Crazy Jane, Doctor Light, Bumblebee, Ambush Man, Elongated Man and many others as the roster has changed and evolved over its’ multiple evolutions.
This is exciting news, indeed, for Doom Patrol fans. The subscription cost (unannounced at this point) for DC Universe is increasingly becoming favorable.
Doom Patrol Official Synopsis:
“Doom Patrol is a re-imagining of one of DC’s most beloved group of outcast Super Heroes: Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Girl and Crazy Jane, led by modern-day mad scientist Dr. Niles Caulder (The Chief). The Doom Patrol’s members each suffered horrible accidents that gave them superhuman abilities — but also left them scarred and disfigured. Traumatized and downtrodden, the team found purpose through The Chief, who brought them together to investigate the weirdest phenomena in existence — and to protect Earth from what they find. Part support group, part Super Hero team, the Doom Patrol is a band of super-powered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them. Picking up after the events of Titans, Doom Patrol will find these reluctant heroes in a place they never expected to be, called to action by none other than Cyborg, who comes to them with a mission hard to refuse, but with a warning that is hard to ignore: their lives will never, ever be the same.”
