[ # ] What do you think of Doom Patrol’s newest member?
June 10th, 2020 under Brendan Fraser, DC Comics, HBO Max, Matt Bomer


We are just 15 days away from the season two premiere of Doom Patrol on HBO Max. Today, the streaming service released the first look at the DC Universe show that is unlike all of the other ones. It is nice to see that nothing has changed for bumbling superheroes. That is why we love them and the things they do.

What can we expect from the new season? Cliff Steele aka Robotman (Brendan Fraser), Larry Trainor aka Negative Man (Matt Bomer), Rita Farr aka Elasti-Woman (April Bowlby), Jane aka Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero), and Victor Stone aka Cyborg (Joivan Wade) — are back again to save the world. That is, if they can find a way to grow up…both figuratively and literally. Following the defeat of Mr. Nobody, the members of the Doom Patrol now find themselves mini-sized and stranded on Cliff’s toy race car track. Here they begin to deal with their feelings of betrayal by Niles Caulder aka The Chief (Timothy Dalton), while confronting their own personal baggage. And as each member faces the challenge of growing beyond their own past traumatic experiences, they must come together to embrace and protect the newest member of the family: Dorothy Spinner (Abigail Shapiro), Niles’ daughter, whose powers remain a mysterious but real threat to bringing on the end of the world.

If you have been on the fence on whether or not to subscribe to HBO Max, this show will make it easy for you to decide to do it. Doom Patrol is not my normal genre, but it is unlike all of the other ones. It is so ingenious and funny that you cannot help but root for them, even though they are massive screw ups. Not only that, but this is also a superhero show you cannot watch with the kids because there is sex and cursing. See we can have nice things.
