"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 be same.

One of the lamest comic book super groups ever. Brought back from the dead after having a huge bomb go off with the team standing around it. When can we have the Legion of Super pets series.

My favorite comic series, but they all died (except for Robotman, if you accept the 2nd edition series) at the end of the original series.

And I would not refer to Elasti-Girl as "scarred and disfigured".

Who in the world is Crazy Jane?

She's the Beast dude from Glass. But female. And based loosely on a real person. And not a serial killer.

I only ever read Grant Morrison's Doom Patrol (and not nearly all of that either, maybe I should try to do so one day) so I'm familiar with Crazy Jane but not with Beast Boy, Elasti-Girl/Elastiwoman or, mostly, Negative Man (who was supplanted by a different entity in that run, tho one assumes with the same powers). If the series were based on that it could give Legion a run for its money.

Beast Boy wasn't quite a member of the Doom Patrol, he was still a teenager with a bizarre guardian.

Another not-quite-member was Mento, who was dating Elasti-Girl.
