When Doom Patrol returns later this month, Crazy Jane, Cyborg, Robotman, Elasti-Woman, and Niles Caulder won’t just be going up against enormous rats, they’ll be fighting the one of the most powerful beings to ever exist within DC’s sprawling universe of characters: a young girl named Dorothy who has the power to turn her thoughts into reality.


In the first trailer for Doom Patrol season two, the gang’s all back and growing closer and more fond of each other. But the newest addition to their family, Niles’ long-lost daughter Dorothy Spinner (Abigail Shapiro), presents a new and unique challenge for the team that none of them are exactly prepared to deal with. Her powers are near godlike, and theirs are...rather garden-variety by metahuman standards.

But playing at a disadvantage has always been the Doom Patrol’s strength, and even if Dorothy can conjure anthropomorphic rabbit monsters from her mind, that’s not going to be enough to stop them from suiting up (colloquially speaking) and rolling out to do what they do best (“best,” in this case, referring to saving the world).

Doom Patrol’s second season hits DC Universe and HBO Max on June 25.

Based entirely on the trailer and that the show is a great show:
I do believe this is gonna be a great season with a lot of philosophy.
