*** Which causes continuity problems of its' own, given that the story in question dealt with the Flash going to the Doom Patrol for help with his children's powers- who didn't show up in continuity until after Byrne's run on Doom Patrol was over.

''"Doom Patrol''" vol. 2 was launched in October, 1987, still written by Kupperberg. Eventually, most of original team was revealed to have been resurrected in some way or alive all along, and the new book added a number of other characters which colored within the superhero lines and didn't quite set the world on fire. Then came Creator/GrantMorrison, who dedicated them more specifically to fighting "weird" crime and disasters. His first StoryArc, "Crawling from the Wreckage", built up the weirdness of the comic to extremes and delved into some adult subject matter. There were scissormen from imaginary worlds, the Brotherhood of [[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible Dada]], the Men from N.O.W.H.E.R.E and a friendly "[[GeniusLoci transvestite street]]" named, well... Danny the Street. Just in case you were wondering, [[spoiler: he dresses like a boulevard]]. No, really. And then it got even weirder. He left and, with the switchover of the book to VertigoComics, Rachel Pollack, more well known as a tarot expert and prose fiction writer, took over. She had much the same approach, but the book did not retain its popularity and it got cancelled. The title ended with issue #87 (February, 1995).

* FollowTheLeader: At one time the Patrol acted as a school... [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} for young mutants]]. The two groups debuted within months of each other, however, not nearly long enough for one to be based on the other. That being said, there are also some very clear parallels between the original Doom Patrol and the ComicBook/FantasticFour, who came first by a much wider margin. They have also shared writers; Arnold Drake, Creator/GrantMorrison and Creator/JohnByrne have all written for both teams.

* TakeThat: Towards the end of his run, Morrison put out a one-shot Doom Patrol special entitled "Doom Force." It highlighted every trope of the [[Creator/RobLiefeld Liefeldian]] [[UsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks Dark Age]] had to offer, from the artistic failings to the horrible characters. It ended with one member of [[strike:YoungBlood]] Doom Force dead, and the remaining members declaring him a creep, walking away in an EverybodyLaughsEnding.

* TheAntiGod: Decreator, also known as Anti-God, the first shadow cast by God's light. Once awakened, it will unmake all existence. However, Crazy Jane points out that it's a reflection, a vibration...and therefore, can be interfered with like any other wave-form. With the help of Rebis and an occultist they manage to set up a counter-vibration that almost completely cancels out the Unmaker so that it's now only unmaking the universe very, ''very'' slowly.

* {{Transvestite}}: Danny the Street (his male-geared stores, like gun shops, are covered in pink lace and the like), and a number of people who live on him.

** Roughly played with in the Giffen series, which reveals Larry ''has'' been dead since the accident that turned him into Negative Man. Since then, it's been the N-Man entity in a variety of clones. But the N-Man isn't sure he's not Larry sometimes. Or something. The whole thing is sorta fuzzy for now.
