Note: this is a partly spoiler-free of the first episode of Doom Patrol. I’ll focus first on basic story details and save spoilers for the marked section at the end. And Doom Patrol isn’t the only streaming series about a bunch of misfit heroes debuting today – check out our spoiler-free review of Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy.
Perhaps neither Titans nor Young Justice: Outsiders were enough incentive to convince you to subscribe to the DC Universe streaming app. Understandable. Titans got off on the wrong foot with a lot of DC fans thanks to that infamous “F*** Batman!!!” clip. And as great as Outsiders has been in the first half of the season, it’s also a show geared more toward existing fans of the animated series.
