     "Subject 13" / Conner / Superboy 

"Subject 13" / Conner / Superboy

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/conner.jpg

Species: Kryptonian/Human Hybrid

Played By: Brooker Muir (season 1), Joshua Orpin (season 2)

Appearances: Titans (2018)

Subject 13, also known as Conner, is a clone of Superman and Lex Luthor that was created in Cadmus Laboratories. He was created by Eve Watson, who eventually became his handler and mother figure. He has a genetically enhanced canine companion named Krypto.
  • 13 Is Unlucky: Averted. As Conner is actually the luckiest of the attempted Superman clones as 01 through 12 were failed cloning attempts.
  • Accidental Murder: A news report from Doom Patrol episode Donkey Patrol, implies that he and Krypto caused a car crash which killed five innocent people.
  • Adaptational Badass: Where his original comic book power-set was a form of telekinesis that allowed him to simulate the characteristics of a Flying Brick, this Conner has much if not all of Superman's trademark abilities. Such as his Eye Beams, X-Ray Vision, Super Breath, and Super Hearing.
  • Artificial Human: Is a cloning attempt of Superman and Lex Luthor.
  • Blue and Orange Morality: Conner sometimes has trouble understanding moral issues, as he hasn't really had much time to learn about it. He saw nothing wrong with robbing a woman right after he saved her from being mugged at gun point.
  • Born as an Adult: Conner was cloned and "born" as a teenager with some knowledge and memories implanted inside his head.
  • Chest Insignia: After escaping Cadmus Laboratories, Conner wears a shirt with the Superman 's "S" shield on it.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Easily defeats the soldiers Cadmus sends after him.
  • Destructive Saviour:
    • When rescuing Krypto from being experimented on, Conner is quite destructive to the scientists.
    • While saving Lionel Luthor from Cadmus soldiers, Conner causes a lot of damage to the farmhouse.
    • Conner’s attempt to save “good guys” results in police car doors being ripped off and bodies flying.
  • The Dog Bites Back: Played with. The first thing we see him doing is attacking scientists who were experimenting on him, but it later turns out that he attacked them because they were hurting Krypto.
  • Eye Beams
  • The Faceless: His face isn't shown in The Stinger of Season 1.
  • Genetic Memory: He has residual memories of both Superman and Lex Luthor, which provide some guidance to the world but also messes him up.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Is half Kryptonian, half human.
  • Homosexual Reproduction: Pretty much how Conner came into existence.
  • Innocent Fanservice Guy: In his first scene at least, he wanders around completely naked despite there being lab coats he could use to cover up. Presumably, the scientists that grew him never bothered to teach him nudity taboos.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Since he's fresh out into the world, he has very little idea how it works or how to communicate, with Eve comparing him to a two-year-old. He accidentally robs a woman when he tries to ask for money and scares her instead, cheerfully thanking her when she hands her purse over.
  • Kryptonite Factor: Like Superman he is as vulnerable to Kryptonite.
  • Last Episode, New Character: Debuted during The Stinger of the Season 1 finale, Dick Grayson.
  • Like Father, Like Son: Conner inherited more than just Superman's abilities or Lex's scientific potential. As his titular episode shows he has Lex's anger issues, and just as if not more importantly, much like his namesake Superman, Conner/Superboy's natural inclination in any situation is to help others with his powers. To protect people.
  • Line-of-Sight Name: He adopts the name Conner from the nametag of a Cadmus uniform.
  • Mix-and-Match Man: Conner is a clone made of DNA from both Superman and Lex Luthor.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: He misinterprets the police arresting someone as an attack, "saving" them and exposing himself to the world.
  • Nigh Invulnerable
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: Despite Eve urging him to not use his powers and lay low to avoid alerting Cadmus, Conner cannot sit idly by while Jason Todd falls to his death and chooses to jump in and save his life. Cue Mercy Graves showing up just a few moments later to shoot Conner with Kryptonite bullets the second he let his guard down.
  • Pet the Dog: Almost literally with his rescue of a fellow test subject who happens to be a dog.
  • The Power of the Sun: Like Superman, derives his Kryptonian powers from the absorption of solar energy from the Earth's yellow sun.
  • Really Was Born Yesterday: Looks like a teenager, but was created only recently.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Just before he uses his heat vision.
  • Running Gag: Has a habit of ending up naked
    • Conner is seen wandering around naked in Cadmus before he finds a guard's uniform.
    • Is naked when Kory and Rachel use their combined powers to heal him from his kryptonite poisoning.
    • When he finally wakes up in Titans Tower, he leaves the medbay and greets Gar naked.
  • Shoo the Dog: He tells Krypto to leave before he goes back to Cadmus, even yelling at him and calling him a stupid mutt when he won't go.
  • The Stinger: In Dick Grayson, he escapes from captivity from Project CADMUS, but before he goes, he rescues a dog from a green glowing cage.
  • Super Intelligence
  • Superpower Lottery: Has all of the powers of Superman
  • Super Speed
  • Super Strength
  • Super Toughness: Can take a punch from Wonder Girl and keep going.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: Conner is barely several weeks old, has no training, but he has most of Superman's power set.
  • The Villain Knows Where You Live: After reveal himself and his powers to the public, Mercy Graves is able to track him down to Titans Tower.
  • X-Ray Vision
  • You Are Number 6: At Cadmus he was known as Subject 13.
  • Younger Than They Look: Looks like a teenager, but is really only a few weeks old.

     Jericho Wilson 

Jericho Wilson

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jericho.jpeg

Species: Metahuman

Played By: Chella Man | Alan Ritchson (in Hank's body) | Esai Morales (in Slade's body) | Chelsea Zhang (in Rose's body)

Appearances: Titans (2018)

Jericho is the son of Slade Wilson and Adeline, and the brother of Rose Wilson. He was seemingly murdered after being lured into a complicated situation involving the Titans and his father, causing repercussions.
  • Adaptational Dye Job: A green-eyed blond in the comics, brunet with brown eyes in the show.
  • Adaptational Name Change: It appears Jericho is his actual name in this series, when in the comics, his name was Joseph "Joey" Wilson and "Jericho" was his superhero alias. This may have been done to avoid confusion with Kane Wolfman from Arrow.
    • Observant viewers noticed that Slade's password in the season 2 premiere reads "JOEY", but this is the only implication of it being his real name.
  • Ambiguously Bi: When his mother asks about having a girlfriend or boyfriend, Jericho simply nods, giving no answer.
  • And I Must Scream: Slade traps Jericho in his mind for 5 years, even if the later jumped in it willingly.
  • Bishōnen: Courtesy of his Race Lift.
  • Body Surf: What his power amounts to. When eye contact is made, Jericho is able to enter another's body and control their motor functions.
  • Composite Character: The Jericho in-universe has the name and characteristics of Joseph Wilson yet the circumstances of his death and the ripple effect that it has had on the rest of the cast is more akin to his late brother Grant in the comics.
  • Cute Mute: Jericho is mute and almost awkwardly innocent to a fault.
  • Disney Death: When Slade accidentally stabbed him, Jericho projected his soul into Slade's body. Though his body was left for dead, he lived on in Slade's mind fighting for control, and only able to communicate through sign language.
  • Hand Signals: These are a necessity, due to the mute factor.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Jericho lunges himself in front of Dick, taking his father's blade to the torso. Somewhat subverted: E.L._.O reveals he is inside Deathstroke's body (as Dick recalls his last meeting with Slade and notices he was making the sign language gesture for "Help me").
  • Keet: Jericho has a child-like enthusiasm.
  • Lineage Comes from the Father: Jericho’s powers are a result of the experimental bio-enhancements his father went through.
  • Parental Favoritism: Seems to have been Slade's favourite child.
  • Posthumous Character: He's been allegedly dead since before the series started. Not quite, see above spoiler tag.
  • Race Lift: In the comics, Joey is white and blond. In this series, he's portrayed by Chinese-American actor Chella Man.
  • Shown Their Work: The sign language he uses is accurate, as the actor is deaf.
  • The Speechless: Jericho's throat was slit by some old enemies of his father during a home invasion. Now he's unable to talk and is only able to communicate through sign language.
  • Starting a New Life: After his assault, Jericho and his mother were forced to move away from the suburbs and carefully maintain a low profile.
  • Superpowerful Genetics: He inherited his father's activated metagene, which left him with the ability to Body Surf in contrast to his sister's Healing Factor.

Joshua Clay

Species: Metahuman

Played By: Alimi Ballard

Appearances: Doom Patrol

Joshua "Josh" Clay is a Metahuman physician who looks after the Doom Patrol at their headquarters after they retired. Despite having powers, he refuses to use them.
  • The Atoner: He took on his current role at the "Academy" to repent for some horrible actions he committed while working for the US Government in the Bureau of Normalcy.
  • Broken Pedestal: Averted. He knows a very different Niles than the team does from their time in the Bureau of Normalcy together and is all too aware of the darkness Niles walks in but still has faith in him and encourages the team not to give up on him after they start discovering some of his less pleasant traits.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: A seemingly ordinary man just trying to keep the original Doom Patrol safe. He turns out to be the one responsible for Larry's fusion with the Negative Spirit and likely aided the creation of Rita Farr's condition.
    Flex Mentallo 

"Flex Mentallo"

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/flex.jpg

Species: Metahuman

Played by: Devan Long

Appearances: Doom Patrol

Flex Mentallo is a comic book superhero brought to life, having powers of altering reality by flexing. He is kidnapped by the Bureau of Normalcy, but rescued by the Doom Patrol.
  • Adaptational Nice Guy: When he first got his powers in the comics, he not only beat up his childhood tormentors but cast aside his girlfriend because he felt she was crimping his style. Here, he's about as nice as he was when he joined the team.
  • Break the Cutie: His imprisonment in the Ant Farm has destroyed most of his mind by the time the Doom Patrol encounters him.
  • Bruiser with a Soft Center: May seem like a big muscular guy, but he's very sweet and gentle, beloved in his hometown and was in a loving and happy relationship with his wife.
  • Happily Married: To his wife Dolores, with her being the reason why he allowed himself to be experimented on by the Bureau of Normalcy as they held her hostage. Unfortunately, their reunion doesn't last long.
  • Mr. Fanservice: His regular clothes are just boxers and combat boots, leaving his chiseled features out in the open
  • Nice Guy: Can easily befriend anyone.
  • Older Than They Look: Doesn't look a day older today than he did in 1964.
  • Pec Flex: His Muscle Mystery power activates when he flexs, so expect him to go into body-builder poses during a fight.
  • Pre-Climax Climax: Causes one in Penultimate Patrol when he accidentally flexes the wrong muscle and as a result the entire Doom Patrol (except Cliff) and all the Dannyzens orgasm.
  • Reality Warper: He seems to be able to do just about anything with his "Muscle Mystery powers" so long as he is able to use his muscles. Moving his chin is sufficient for telekinesis while a full body flex blacks out a city.
  • Stripperiffic: A rare male example of this trope.
  • Superpower Lottery: Just about anything can happen when he flexes. As stated above, while warping reality is one of his main abilities, as long as he can use his muscles, he has multiple powers that are a mystery even to him.
  • Super Senses: He can hear things that normal humans are flat out unable to, like the Negative Spirit or Grid inside Vic's software.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: He's mostly clad in his bracelets, boots and Underwear of Power.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: His powers require him to be able to flex to do anything, so no flex means no go. The Bureau was able to hold him by using a device that kept him mostly immobile and even then what little movement he did have let him use his powers at a very low level. Certain effects require certain flexes so it is possible to get a misfire if he flexes incorrectly.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: After sending the others to the White Space, he is only mentioned in Ezekiel Patrol by Danny, but otherwise does not appear. As Danny says he got the Dannizens to safety it's possible he went with them.

    Danny the Street 

Danny the Street

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dannythestreet.png

Species: Sentient Street

Appearances: Doom Patrol

A sentient street who travels between cities, causing citizens to feel different emotions.
  • Camp: Though it might be a tad unnecessary debating whether a sentient street is gay or straight, they're definitely camp, like in the comics, where their effeminate mannerisms influence others.
  • Composite Character:
    • Word is that this version is inspired by both the Grant Morrison and Gerard Way versions of the character, as a sentient street with a vibrant personality that causes happy emotions for the residents regarding the former, and will let their personality seep into others regarding the latter.
    • Their fate at the end of the first season reduced to a single brick is straight out of the Keith Giffen version of the Doom Patrol that Morrison's and Way's versions bracket.
  • Deadpan Snarker: When Larry asks why the Bureau of Normalcy was after them, Danny responds with this:
    Danny: You know a lot of sentient, teleporting, genderqueer streets, Larry?
  • Drag Queen: Danny influences one named Morris.
  • Emotion Eater: A heroic version. According to Maura Lee, Danny gains sustenance from the happiness and wellbeing of the residents, without draining them of it. They are either unwilling or unable to go full on Lotus-Eater Machine to achieve that.
  • Genius Loci: Danny is a very warm, friendly, welcoming...place.
  • Nice Guy: They happily chat up and accommodate anyone, as long as they do not harbor clearly hostile intent.
  • Shapeshifter: Danny can change their shape and generate matter.
  • Talking with Signs: How Danny communicates with everyone.
  • Teleportation: Their main power, and how they move around.
  • Transgender: Danny is nonbinary and genderqueer, as stated by themselves and by Maura Lee.
  • Where Everybody Knows Your Flame: Danny is home to Peeping Tom's Perpetual Cabaret, a thoroughly fabulous 24-hour club with drag shows and karaoke.
