The The Doom Patrol wiki last edited by DoomDoomDoom on 09/18/13 12:47PM View full history

In the first chapter of the issue, The Chief brings together a trio of reluctant heroes who all have their own traumatic history. After explaining that he is familiar with each of the three's history and why they have hidden away from the world he shows them that by working together they are able to do heroic things and rise above their feeling of self pity. It is also revealed that The Chief was in fact the mysterious surgeon who operated on Robotman. The trio of Robotman, Elasti-Girl, and Negative Man then, under the coaxing of The Chief, find and disarm a plastic bomb. Each of the three show their willingness to participate; Negative Man locates the bomb, Elasti-Girl shrinks down to enter inside the bomb to disarm it, and Robotman holds the bomb close to shield the blast in case it were to go detonate.

On the second chapter the newly formed team races against Chiefs old arch enemy, General Immortus in securing atomic energy source from alien ship. General Immortus is seemingly killed after he is trapped on the alien ship and it crashes into nearby mountains. In the end of this story team is named Doom Patrol by the newspapers.

The Team That I Know Is Constantly Doomed 0

I took the time to track down this special issue to commemorate my next milestone, Review #400! Long time readers will likely know, especially with my latest kick, that the Doom Patrol is my favorite superhero team. They've had a wide variety of styles in their 5 series' and are almost always far outside the norm. (Except maybe Vol. 4.... or maybe it was outside the norm of being good? Because its ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE?.... Moving on.) So what better comic to celebrate a milestone than their first...
