Matt Bomer is one of the traumatized misfit superheroes who ban together on DC Universe’s “Doom Patrol.”

“Doom Patrol” is a spin-off from “Titans,” set soon after the events of that web series. Robotman (Brendan Fraser), Negative Man (Matt Bomer), Elasti-Woman (April Bowlby), Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero) and Cyborg (Joivan Wade) all received their powers through a tramautic event. The Chief (Timothy Dalton) is a doctor who joins them together as the Doom Patrol to fight Mr. Nobody (Alan Tudyk), a living shadow whose power is to suck the sanity out of people.

Bomer plays Negative Man whose past life was as Larry Trainor. Larry was a married former pilot who was having a secret affair with a man. He crashes his plane into negative energy and is now wrapped head-to-toe in bandages.

“Doom Patrol” begins streaming on the DC Universe streaming platform on Feb. 15 with new episodes released every Friday.
