Doom Patrol Season 1 Premiere Review

Note: this is a partly spoiler-free of the first episode of Doom Patrol, focusing first on basic story details and saving spoilers for the marked section at the end. And Doom Patrol isn’t the only streaming series about a bunch of misfit heroes that’s now streaming – check out our spoiler-free review of Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy.
Perhaps neither Titans nor Young Justice: Outsiders were enough incentive to convince you to subscribe to the DC Universe streaming app. Understandable. Titans got off on the wrong foot with a lot of DC fans thanks to that infamous “F*** Batman!!!” clip.

Umbrella Academy Proves Netflix Doesn't Need Marvel

This is a spoiler-free review of Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy, which is now streaming globally on Netflix. Check out our video review above, and for more superhero shenanigans, read our review of DC Universe’s Doom Patrol.
Move over, Marvel – Netflix has a new superhero franchise, and if anything, it’s even more twisted, bloody, and unpredictable than the street-level adventures of The Defenders.
Despite Netflix’s decision to jettison many of its Marvel properties, it’s somewhat unfair to compare The Umbrella Academy to the likes of Daredevil and Iron Fist – aside from their comic book origins, the shows are attempting to do very different things; The Umbrella Academy focuses on a dysfunctional family of heroes, who are drawn together by an eccentric and emotionally distant billionaire and tasked with saving the world from annihilation (with a healthy dose of time travel, dancing, and a talking chimpanzee thrown in).
