I mean could have had him in the first episode especially during the scene in Robotman's room, or mentioned.
When they collab tho. When they collab tho!
It was pretty clear until showrunner Jeremy Carver said this :
There are elements that were present in the Titans‘Doom Patrol’,” showrunner Jeremy Carver said, “but I think everyone is best suited coming into this Doom Patrol understanding that we have our own continuity and our own story. And if you come in with a fresh perspective, I think that’s the best way to view this Doom Patrol,” he said.
To be clear, Kipp is literally not-Constantine.
Lol. Yeah I looked at a wiki article about Kipp and that was brought up. I like him though just how I like Constantine in Legends. I think every team needs somebody like Constantine and Kipp every once in a while to fuck shit up
That is kind of a misconception. It is true that Constantine was part of the Vertigo line and the order was not to use him outside of that line (since Vertigo titles and characters are “suggested for adult readers”), while Doom Patrol was still part of the regular DC line, which is “for all ages”. But Morrison run was quite adult (starting with DP volume 2 number 19) and a shift of tone which ultimately lead to the series to move to Vertigo imprint from number 64. Morrison run ended at number 63, but the series continues as a Vertigo title until number 87.
While that is true, the plot that Chief was kidnaped is just to cover the fact Dalton is a guest actor that would not participate much in the series, Dalton brought some much gravitas to the character that is 100 times better. The original actor just looked like a mad scientist stereotype. Dalton added some many layers to that.
Wasn't there a scene with Cyborg seeing the news on the TV about the town disappearing and talking with his father about going to investigate it?
Yeah then he goes there; but nobody else is there..no news..no police...nothing? Just seemed weird..i'm sure i am missing something
Yeah, there's another scene later on when the town appears again after they get saved and they blame the Doom Patrol
Remember when Cyborg was listening in on two FBI Agents who did go there but decided to NOPE the fuck out? They're ignoring it on purpose and because it's bigger than what they were led to believe is my head canon.
