They were outcast heroes, bound together by fate, led by their mysterious, wheelchair-bound Chief: Robotman, Elasti-Girl, Negative Man and Beast Boy, whose strange powers made them the objects of fear instead of hero worship. In the 1960s, they were the most unusual super-team comics readers had ever seen.

In this fourth volume of their Archive series, the Doom Patrol faces such bizarre menaces as Mr. 103, Ultimax, and the Brotherhood of Evil, including the duo of the Brain -- a disembodied, super-intelligent brain -- and Monsieur Mallah, an evil, talking ape who speaks with a French accent.

From Booklist:

DC’s Doom Patrol first appeared in 1963, simultaneously with Marvel’s X-Men and sporting a strikingly similar premise: misfit superheroes led by a wheelchair-bound genius. But while a relaunched X-Men achieved phenomenal success in the 1970s, various efforts to revive Doom Patrol never took off; Grant Morrison’s eccentric 1990s version came closest. In these stories from late in the original run, breezily scripted by Drake and with appealingly subdued art by Premiani, the heroes face foes that match them for outlandishness, including a disembodied brain, prosaically named The Brain, and Monsieur Mallah, a talking ape with a French accent. --Gordon Flagg
