Cyborg is the only hero here that actually wants to be a hero but he’s not without guilt or trauma from the loss of his mother and strained relationship with his father.

    Season One

    Season one introduced us to the main characters and their respective backstories and traumas that brought them to Doom Manor. The Villian of the season, Mr. Nobody, narrated the journey and took part in four wall breaks and commentary of the TV show. Alan Tudyk was brilliant in the role of Mr. Nobody.

    After The Chief mysteriously disappears, the reluctant heroes of Doom Manor find themselves forced into to action by Cyborg to attempt to track down the Chief (Niles Caulder) and bring him back. However, they are often distracted from this primary mission to Cyborg’s frustration.

    Season Two

    Doom Patrol’s Dorthy Spinner & Chief’s Niles Caulder. Abigail Shapiro DC Universe/ HBO Max

    With Season two, Mr. Nobody was not the focus here; he was left out of this season. However, the show follows Dorothy Spinner (Abigail Shapiro), daughter of Niles Caulder. This season delves into the conflict of their newly discovered cause for all their accidents. The ‘team’ must put aside their feelings to protect the Chief’s daughter who wields an extraordinary power that she does not fully understand.

    What set this story apart from season one was Dorothy’s power to bring the imaginary into the real world. The trapped villian by the name of Candlemaker lives inside Dorothy and threatens release upon sucessful three wishes but her wishes have violent and disasterous consequences. Other notable characters from this season include the Sex Men and a disco-loving time traveler with a clock for a head.

    Season Three

    Season three introduces us to Dead Boy Detective Agency and the supervillain group, Sisterhood of Dada which are both led by Mr. Nobody. It isn’t clear at this time if, Alan Tudyk wil be brought back to reprise his role of Mr. Nobody but if he does, we’re in for a hell of a ride. Season three does not currenly have a release date.
