Sign in. From his most memorable scene to his worst audition, Lance Reddick rolls out the truth about his career. Watch now.
The exact origins of Robot Man remain unrevealed in the animated series. At some point, his human brain was transplanted into a large and powerful robotic body due to a past accident; in this respect, he shares much in common with Cyborg of the Teen Titans. During one of the Doom Patrol's latest expeditions against the Brotherhood of Evil in the Amazon jungle, Robot Man and his teammates were ambushed and defeated.
He is best known as a member of the Doom Patrolbeing the only character to appear in every version of the team since he, and the team, were introduced together in June Robotman has appeared in numerous cartoon television shows and films. Robotman made his first live adaptation as a guest star on the Titans television series for the new DC streaming service played by Jake Michaels.
Doom Patrol will, in fact, be the second live-action series from DC Universe, set to begin sometime next year. Doing Titans first makes a lot of sense, since there have already been two different Teen Titans cartoons for successive generations of superhero fans to grow up with. This is everything we know about Doom Patrol.
Cyborg sometimes "Cy" is the half-cybernetic half-man, chief technological expert and one of the five founding members of the Teen Titans. Cyborg was a promising strong teenage athlete named Victor Stone before an accident that killed his mother and injured him so severely that his father replaced the damaged body parts with cybernetics to keep his son alive. But since these mechanical parts were not inconspicuous, he was shunned by his home environment and his friends, which frustrated him greatly.
The Doom Patrol is a superhero group dedicated to stopping the evil organization, Brotherhood of Evil. Since the day it was formed, the Doom Patrol dedicated themselves to stopping the Brotherhood of Evil from taking over the world. Their continuous efforts made them well known throughout the world, and this eventually attracted the attention of a young super powered orphan named Beast Boy who sought to join them in order to make a name for himself.
The Mummy actor Brendan Fraser will voice the superhero, otherwise known as Cliff Steele, and appear as him in flashback scenes, Deadline reports. Riley Shanahan will play the physical performance of Robotman on stage in costume. Here's the official character description: "A former race car driver, Cliff Steele was in a horrific accident that left his body uninhabitable.
While excitement was already high for a live-action TV show, based upon the Teen Titans comics, a lot of recent press has surrounded another superhero team coming to TV. From there on, it's possible the misfits heroes could return, but if nothing else, their first appearance looks to feature a number of classic characters. Though his means are unorthodox, he's helped each of the team's members come to grips with their unusual abilities, and his group should provide an interesting contrast to the Titans. With such an esteemed actor in the role, it's likely Bichir will return as The Chief after his debut, meaning it's also possible to see more of his creation Robotman.
Putting the pedal to the metal, DC's upcoming live-action Titans has cast its version of Robotman. Under the alias of Robotman, Cliff Steele was a founding member of the Doom Patrol, so it wasn't much of a stretch to guess that he would play a part somewhere in an upcoming storyline. Geoff Johns previously confirmed that the fan-favourite team would make an appearance in Titansand ComicBook.
Cyborg is finally making his grand debut on DC Universe, but not where fans initially expected to see him. Instead of joining the team on Titanshe's actually showing up in this week's episode of Doom Patrol. According to series star Joivan Wade, that's because fans are going to meet a younger version of the iconic superhero than ever before.
