The official synopsis of Doom Patrol
Doom Patrol reimagines one of DC’s most beloved supergroups: Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Girl and Crazy Jane are led by mad scientist Dr. Niles Caulder (the Chief). Each member of the Doom Patrol has been the victim of an accident that has given them superhuman abilities, leaving them disfigured. Traumatized and downtrodden, the team finds purpose through the Chief, who brings them together to investigate Earth’s most bizarre phenomena, and protect it from what they find. Part support group, part superhero team, the Doom Patrol are a band of super-powered freaks willing to fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them.
The series picks up after the events of Titans – also in the works at DC Universe and executive produced by Greg Berlanti – putting these reluctant heroes in an unexpected situation. In fact, the team is called to action by Cyborg, who offers them a mission that is difficult to refuse, but with an equally impossible to ignore warning: their lives will never be the same again.
