This series continues to impress, never a dull moment here. Robots punching things, alternate dimensions, and time travel what else could you want in a comic!? With so many questions being answered in the last issue, they were left to focus much more on the raw action here. So warning spoilers are ahead, as I will break down what happens in this issue.
So Danny is no longer a street, Danny is now a shit talking ambulance, yea I said it. Dannyland is in ruins, then we get word that Flex Montella is dead oh and The Vectra is just wreaking havoc. Casey Brink, Captain trainer and Robot Man all travel back in time and are confronted by Torminox. Along with another slightly evil Casey. Man oh man does Torminox rock Robotman, he really takes a beating in this issue, it got me right in the feels, damn tin man.
Flashback to Dannyland and Flex Montella is, in fact, alive! They travel to the past so they can travel to the future to put a stop to current events. Traveling back to Dannyland to burn it to the ground eliminating all the current events, including Terminox this new evil Casey and Casey’s mom!? There was so much going on in this issue I had to read it twice. Oh and I am sure you have at least gone back and read some of this review, it sounds crazy writing it, but that’s half of the fun.
Doom Patrol is bat shit crazy and I like it, there I said it.
