I've never had much interest in Doom Patrol. The 80's Erik Larsen books were fun to look at seeing his early style. Like Steve De Young I'll wait to see if it pops up on another service.

I'm still enjoying the show. Mostly for Brendan Fraser's Robotman. The second episode really ramped up the Morrison weirdness, complete with fourth wall breaking. The third episode was a bit more conventional, but still had some of the quirkiness. 

Cyborg still seems out of place. He seems to be mostly there to remind both the characters and the audience that they are not a conventional superhero team like the Justice League.

Also, live-action Animal-Vegetable-Mineral Man!

I see the IMDb is claiming DOOM PATROL “inspired” X-MEN, apparently based on the former having a June 1964 cover date, the latter September.

DC keeps pushing Cyborg -- in JUSTICE LEAGUE, both the comic and the movie -- and now in this DOOM PATROL series.

I don't think it makes Vic any more popular. His solo series got canceled pretty quickly.

I guess he just doesn't really work outside of the (New Teen) Titans.

I've never really understood the obsession with the relationship between Doom Patrol and X-Men.  Especially since, reading those original Doom Patrol issues, it was so clearly a knockoff of the Fantastic Four in terms of the character dynamics.

I'm sure George doesn't mind the free money!

When I started on WONDER WOMAN, many complained, sight unseen, that it would be all the SHE-HULK stories I hadn't used. Both strong women, after all, right?
