The trailer also introduces classic Doom Patrol baddies like the Candlemaker and Red Jack, but the most fascinating characters making their way to the show are…well, the SeX-Men. Make of their names what you will.

Doom Patrol hits DC Universe and HBO Max on June 27. It will likely air on Foxtel at a later date in Australia.
