Description

In 1963, a group of misfit super-heroes entered the comics scene. They were feared by normal people, possessed unusual powers and abilities, and were led by a genius confined to a wheelchair.

No, we're not talking about Marvel's X-Men, but rather a super-group that debuted three months prior to them in the pages of DC Comics' MY GREATEST ADVENTURE. DOOM PATROL ARCHIVES Volume 1 is a 224-page hardcover collecting the ten earliest truly bizarre adventures of the appropriately named team consisting of Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Girl, and the Chief!

Written by Arnold Drake (who provides an introduction to this volume) & Bob Haney, with art by Bruno Premiani, Volume 1 reprints the Doom Patrol stories from MY GREATEST ADVENTURE #80-85 and DOOM PATROL #86-89 and features the Doom Patrol's very first appearance and origin (in their original green costumes); the secret origin of the Chief; the introduction of one of their greatest adversaries, General Immortus; the introduction of the Brotherhood of Evil (the Brain, Monsieur Mallah, Madam Rouge); the prehistoric monster menace of Dr. Janus; the Green-Headed League; the revolt of Negative Man; the Atomic Furies from beneath the Earth; and the mutant Animal-Vegetable-Mineral Man!
