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.
