Is there some sort of trend where the superhero fails to do anything in his own comic book? This issue of Doom Patrol has the team facing death on a mass scale with whole buildings full of people dropping dead. And to stop this menace-- !!Spoiler Alert!!-- they do virtually nothing. The world's strangest heroes end up looking like the world's most incompetent heroes, having failed to save a single life. Perhaps this is suppose to be a dramatic point about how even heroes are sometimes helpless to prevent a tragedy. The problem is there is no sense of drama or tragedy in this tale. People die and the world simply moves on. There is some progress made on the Nudge and Vortex sub-plot and the art is crisp, clear and tells the story well but the whole story itself leaves hardly any impression.
