the Doom Patrol is such a great concept but one that has never really sold well. a group of people who have been scared by tragedy and are considered 'freaks' by society band together to show that they still have a purpose and can make a difference.
this team of misfits has never really been a huge seller but there is definitely potential. how would you relaunch the DP?
i would personally stick with the core members. i would include Beast Boy since he's the most well known. there are a few writers who i think would be ideal for the job like Joshua Hale Fialkov, but i dont think his name alone would sell many comics. i really disliked the Robotman that appeared recently in My Greatest Adventure. he was flying around and shooting rockets and lasers like he was Ironman. to me Cliff Steele is a great character because he doesnt have a lot of powers. sure he has some super strength and durability, but besides that he's not overly powerful. he's an average joe thrown into incredibly strange situations (see Grant's Doom Patrol run). he gets torn apart but manages to survive.
maybe Lemire? though he couldnt help Frankenstein stave off cancellation.
