*DC: Almost simultaneously with the debut of the X-Men at Marvel, DC made their moribund title My Greatest Adventure the home of the ‘Doom Patrol’, created by Arnold Drake and Bruno Premiani, another assembly of misfits with strange powers, hated and feared by the world they protect, led by a paraplegic genius in a wheelchair. Believe it or not, this appears to have been purely coincidental, and in many people’s eyes, the Doom Patrol was the more mature and enjoyable title. After a brief period, the team took over the series in name as well as in effect, and My Greatest Adventure, while keeping its numbering, was officially rechristened the Doom Patrol. We have a classic selection of the DP’s adventures against some of the world’s wildest villains – the Brotherhood of Evil (no, not Evil Mutants – that was the other lot), Dr. Tyme, Mr. 103, and the Animal-Vegetable-Mineral Man, as well as guest-appearances by Mento and the Challengers of the Unknown. From #87 to #107, a cavalcade of superheroics and soap-opera, soon to be reimagined as a live-action TV show.
