Doom Patrol origins

Believe it or not, Doom Patrol first appeared in My Greatest Adventure #80 in 1963, created by Arnold Drake, Bob Haney, and Bruno Premiani. Dubbed the World's Strangest Heroes, this team consisted of misfits that faced alienation and trauma from those in the world who misunderstood them.

While people considered them "freaks" and outcasts, The Chief gathered them together and had them fight to save the world that hated them from villains of all shapes and sizes. The team was seen as DC Comics way of creating something similar to what Marvel Comics was doing at the time with more grounded heroes, and six issues later DC Comics re-titled the book Doom Patrol.
