Good lord. The impossible has happened. I'm intrigued. This looks fun.

They've done a bunch of character posters.  Here are a couple that worked for me.

It's trying too hard to be Morrison "weird".  And I agree, WHY is Cyborg there???

I'm expecting Brendan Fraser to not get along with Negative Man in this show... I've heard that he REALLY hates mummies...

This show is sort of tickling at the 'so bad its good' bit in the back of my brain.  But not enough for me to pay for DCU to watch it.  I hope it eventually gets a second life on some other service I already pay for.

The show looks to be a take on Grant Morrison's DP for the most part. In that, the Negative Spirit inhabits both Larry Trainor and his doctor, Eleanor Poole, fusing the two together into a hermaphrodite being called Rebis. That complicated set-up appears to have been sidelined while still offering Negative Man as an LGBTQ+ character.

While this is clearly Morrison's version filtered through the showrunners' approach to the material, I'm still curious. I read somewhere that the DP has had seven or so hard reboots, with each version being somehow incompatible with the others. So, here's one more...

If the show follows the characterization in TITANS (which apparently is a separate continuity despite using mostly the same actors), it’s drawing a lot from the post-ONE YEAR LATER DOOM PATROL of Geoff Johns (the Chief is an abusive, manipulative asshole) and Keith Giffen (Rita is a bit damaged psychologically and reverts to a shapeless blob when she’s not concentrating. I’m betting they’ll reveal Grant Morrison’s twist on the Chief by the end of the season.

I mostly enjoyed the Doom Patrol in TITANS. Rita could be better, but I’m assuming her character arc will involve regaining her sense of self.

+++++++++++++

still offering Negative Man as an LGBTQ+ character.

Well Matt Bomer is gay, so it's not too surprising to me that they're allowing him to play a gay (bi?) character.
