Superheroes interest us all because who doesn’t like a powerful character. But what about a superhero made out of his tragic past and traumatic experience in the past. To introduce you to a series, Doom Patrol is that one series that talks just about all of these concepts. The series is inspired by DC Comics written by Bob Haney, Arnold Drake, and Bruno Premiani.
The series has received a high IMDb rating of 7.9. The series has received many nominations, and the series also won ReFrame Stamp in the IMDb Pro Top 200 Most Popular TV Titles 2020-2021.

The plot of the series is about superheroes. But these aren’t your normal superheroes. These superheroes got their powers because they suffered in the past, the traumatized past is what triggered their powers. These superheroes were separated from society and used to live with Chief.
