List RulesVote up your favorite 'Doom Patrol' characters - regardless of whether they're good or bad.

Get ready to feel the pain as we rank the greatest characters from the superhero web series Doom Patrol. Based on the venerable DC Comics superhero group, Doom Patrol centers on a group of mismatched heroes as they come together to rescue their mentor (Dr. Niles Caulder) after he’s kidnaped by none other than Mr. Nobody.

Now in its second season, this list of Doom Patrol characters includes their real names and powers (when available) from both seasons. With such an eclectic cast - which includes former Bond actor Timothy Dalton as Dr. Caulder, Brendan Fraser as Cliff Steele, and Alan Tudyk as Mr. Nobody - it’s difficult to predict the best Doom Patrol character. Fortunately for you, you don’t have to pick only one.

Vote up your favorite characters from Doom Patrol, and vote down all the heroes and villains you don’t like.
