The Doom Patrol is a superhero team appearing in publications from DC Comics. The first Doom Patrol consisted of super-powered misfits, whose „gifts“ caused them alienation and trauma. The Doom Patrol first appeared in 1963, when the DC title My Greatest Adventure, an adventure anthology title, was being converted to a superhero format. The task assigned to writer Arnold Drake was to create a team that fit both of these formats. With fellow writer Bob Haney and artist Bruno Premiani, he created the Doom Patrol, a team of super-powered misfits regarded as freaks by the world at large. The members of the Doom Patrol often quarreled and suffered personal problems, something that was already common among superhero teams published by Marvel Comics but was novel among the DC lineup. The Doom Patrol’s rogues gallery matched the strange, weird tone of the series.
The popularity of the book waned and the publisher canceled it. Some similarities exist between the original Doom Patrol and Marvel Comics‘ original X-Men. Both include misfit superheroes shunned by society and both are led by men of preternatural intelligence who use wheelchairs. These similarities ultimately led series writer Arnold Drake to argue that the concept of the X-Men must have been based on the Doom Patrol. I’ve become more and more convinced that knowingly stole The X-Men from The Doom Patrol. Over the years I learned that an awful lot of writers and artists were working surreptitiously between .

In an interview shortly before his death in 2007, Drake took a more moderate position, stating that while it is possible Lee took his ideas from Doom Patrol, he could also have arrived at a similar concept independently: „Since we were working in the same vineyards, and if you do enough of that stuff, sooner or later, you will kind of look like you are imitating each other. The new team is led by Celsius, the Chief’s previously unseen wife, who recreates the Doom Patrol to protect herself from General Immortus. Robotman is the only survivor of the original Doom Patrol, and his ruined body is replaced by a new, futuristic one built by Dr.
This new version of the team did not receive its own series following its three-issue tryout. Kupperberg said this was most likely due to poor sales, as even in the months prior to the DC Implosion he heard no word of a new Doom Patrol series. Eclipse Comics published Doom Patrol: The Official Index with covers drawn by John Byrne in 1984. 80 to their final appearance before their 1980s return. Kupperberg’s enthusiasm for the Doom Patrol remained, and in addition to writing some of the team’s post-Showcase appearances, he eventually wrote a proposal for a new Doom Patrol series. This incarnation was a more conventional superhero series than the original volume. 18—Celsius was killed in an explosion in DC Comics‘ „Invasion!
