Doom Patrol is a superheroes team from DC Comics.

A TV series based on the comic books premiered in February 2019. The series was renewed for a third time, with the fourth season aired in December 2022 being its final season.


The team first appeared in My Greatest Adventure #80 (June 1963), and they remained the featured characters of My Greatest Adventure, which was re-titled Doom Patrol as of issue #86 (March 1964). The comics focus on a group of super-powered misfits whose "gifts" caused them alienation and trauma.



The fandom arose in response to the airing of the TV show, and as a result, most fanworks are based on TV canon rather than comics canon. On AO3 as of February 2023, there are 457 works in the Doom Patrol (TV) tag. Meanwhile, there are only 62 works for the Doom Patrol (comics) tag.
