During the Forever Evil storyline, the Doom Patrol attempted to stop the Crime Syndicate. However while attempting to stop them Scorch, Karma, Negative Woman, were killed during a confrontation with Johnny Quick and Atomica of the Crime Syndicate, while Tempest, Celsius were believed to be killed. After learning of the demise of his team the "Chief" decided to assemble a new Doom Patrol.
New Doom Patrol
Shortly after the defeat of the Crime Syndicate, the new Doom Patrol debuted. This second incarnation of the team consisted of Robotman, Elasti-Girl, Negative Man, and the former Justice League member Element Woman, whom the Chief recruited by convincing her that she was abandoned and left for dead by the League.
The team attempt to capture Jessica Cruz, the new Power Ring, to force her to join the team. During their attempt to capture her, Caulder demands the team refuse to save civilians in a collapsing building to allow him to lobotomize Cruz and force her to serve him. The Justice League save the people in the building and Lex Luthor manages to hold Caulder back so Batman can convince Cruz to go with the League instead. During their fight, Luthor reveals that Caulder was responsible for causing the "accidents" that gave the Doom Patrol their powers and that both Celsius and Joshua Clay used the chaos of the events of Forever Evil to fake their deaths and escape from Caulder. It is also revealed that Caulder poisoned an entire fishing village as part of an experiment, and cured the residents only after Luthor had discovered the truth and threatened to expose him.
