The Doom Patrol is DC’s weirdest team of all. They’re part Fantastic Four super-science, part X-Men misfits assembled by a brainy benefactor, but still something entirely their own.
Despite being a Silver Age creation, this title will always be associated with Grant Morrison, who had one of their many early star-making turns with the Patrol as they pivoted from the fringes of DC’s superhero universe into the realm of their Vertigo line in the early 90s. Morrison’s run was followed by much-beloved run by Rachel Pollack.
