there is always a lot to potentially explore psychologically, they are people who dress in tights and fight crime for free...
Plus I thought Doom Patrol was supposed to be a crazy shit book. There was no crazy shit, although the cliffhanger at the end had a lot of potential.
I am tired of emo team books in general though, so I don't know... Metal Men was good enough for me to follow through on the cliffhanger, but this is getting dropped and MM may end up being a trade wait.
And what was up with not naming the girl who gets killed in the beginning until way after she dies. I had to go back and read the panel where she died again, because a. I didn't really get what happened in the panel and b. she was a red shirt, who cares that she died?
That's how desensitized readers are... oh, nameless chick died, who the fuck cares?
