"The choice is yours my Doom Patrol"



The Chief aka Dr. Niles Caulder grew up with a desire to make the world a better place. From a young age, he proved to be a genius. Caulder was given funding to create a chemical to prolong life. However, he discovered the benefactor was General Immortus. During the confrontation, Caulder was shot and paralyzed. Professor Caulder was committed to preserving mankind and came to a belief that he would gather those who were marked by tragedy. These outcasts would have nothing to lose and be willing to take the risk to save the world. The Doom Patrol was born. Caulder kept his true identity a secret from the public and the team until Immortus forced him to. Although, he appears as a fragile man in a wheelchair, Caulder rides an Action Chair, capable of flight and offense.

After the Paris battle against General Zahl, the Doom Patrol was tainted and they went their separate ways. For years, Caulder loathed in self-pity. One day, the Brain and Monsieur Mallah arrived to help reunite the Doom Patrol for their final mission. Batman also appeared and helped defeat the villains. Both concluded it was critical to warn the former Doom Patrol. After everyone was found, they were captured by General Zahl. Rather than let more innocents die, the Doom Patrol sacrificed their lives and were killed in an explosion.
