Scientific genius Dr. Niles Caulder gathered together the
victims of horrific accidents and taught them to help humanity rather
than hide from it, using their new-found powers to become the World’s
Strangest Super Heroes: the Doom Patrol! Perhaps not as well-known as
the Justice League, the Doom Patrol stands ready to defend the world
from those who would destroy it, and now, for the first time ever, it’s
offered in the fan-favorite JLU style! This 4-pack includes the
Negative Man: Victim of a radioactive field mishap, the bandage-swathed Larry Trainor is capable of generating a separate, externalized version of himself, manifesting in the form of a radioactive silhouette capable of flight, intangibility, and the manufacture of localized explosions. Along with Elasti-Girl and Robotman, Negative Man was a founding member of the Doom Patrol, and has participated in all subsequent incarnations of the superhero team.
Robot Man: Robotman is sheathed in a simplified, subtly sculptured copper chassis, complete with chest-borne blue communicator. Housing the mind of Cliff Steele, Robotman’s durable mechanical form provides him heightened strength, endurance and speed, and enables him to scale walls and melt various metals. Along with Elasti-Girl and Negative Man, Robotman was a founding member of the Doom Patrol, and has participated in all subsequent incarnations of the superhero team.
Elasti-Girl: Originally an actress, Rita Farr is exposed to volcanic vapors during a film shoot in Africa, in the aftermath of which she gained the ability to expand and shrink her height; unable to control her new power, Rita was driven into despair and obscurity before being approached and recruited by Dr. Niles Caulder. Along with Robotman and Negative Man, Elasti-Girl was a founding member of the Doom Patrol, and has participated in all subsequent incarnations of the superhero team.
Mento: In an effort to impress Elasti-Girl, the wealthy Steve Dayton constructed a mentally aggrandizing helmet which provided him with the abilities of telepathy, flight, intangibility and psychokinesis, while simultaneously heightening paranoia and gradually causing an addiction to the Helmet’s properties. Establishing his alter ego, Mento, and becoming a member of the Doom Patrol, Dayton successfully courted and wed Elasti-Girl.
