This series makes a significant leap in Doom Patrolness when Erik Larson takes over the artwork. His style just feels a littler weirder and enhances the “otherness” that the DP has always been about. This new look for Cliff is one example. The exaggerated jawline, longer limbs and added “muscle” while in some ways being more human actually make him more alien looking. And, why did Cliff get a body with a six-pack? He’s a robotman.

Oh, bought the new parts from Lexcorp. That’s not a problem at all.

I would like to see Negative Woman on the show. Some power as Larry, but she handles it differently (plus she turns into Neg Woman vs it coming out of her). I just really feel for her.

One of my few complaints about this arc is the reveal that Josh’s powers are innate. I like the idea of DPer’s almost having their power inflicted on them

Whoa, Gargamele whatever your name is. You really let yourself go since the Silver Age.

Remember when the Doom Patrol was the toast of the town. Now these kids show up and this is how people react.

Love the thoughts on and yea, if they do a season 3 then would be great to have her in the show to play off the dynamic between her and Larry. Thanks @msgtv :robotman_dp:
