- Full Description
The origin and first stories of the one-and-only team, considered by some as DC's answer to The X-Men. A very different comic book team, featuring a new breed of superheroes. Cast out of society due to their deformities, the Doom Patrol were a group of misfit loners not blessed, but cursed, with unnatural powers. These human oddities--Elasti-Girl, Negative Man, Robotman and the Chief--save the world one strange case at a time. Plus equally bizarre villains like the undying criminal mastermind General Immortus, shape-shifting Animal-Vegetable-Mineral Man, the Brotherhood of Evil and more!
Sixteen complete, stand-alone issues from very early in the Golden Age. The Fantastic Four was said to be Marvel's reaction to the success of DC's Justice League. So DC just may have returned the favor, when they created this team with a LOT in common with Professor X and the X-Men.
Beautifully drawn by Bruno Premiani and Bob Brown. This was unlike just about any other DC title of the time and is a lot of fun. I highly recommend it.
