DOOM PATROL #10 picks up just moments after Casey and Terry share a kiss before tumbling out of their apartment window. Finally, Terry None reveals her true role as a potential villain in this issue! Putting on her tap dancing shoes with a new black and white striped outfit, she dances away as the population becomes mutated and inflated. All the $#!+ people ate is finally catching up with them, and it’s up to the Doom Patrol to stop this madness! First, we bounce to Haxxalon the Star Archer in his domain. The plain white figure now seeks a bride for himself. The rest of the team begins investigating Lucious’s room since he’s presumed to be missing by the Renolds family. It’s there that they stumble across the madness going on downtown.

Mr. Nobody continues causing his chaos with a new powered up gang: the Brotherhood of Nada. Also, fans may remember Mr. Nobody from Grant Morrison’s run, as he led the similarly named group: the Brotherhood of Dada. Lucius, the boy magician now fluttering his newly gained powers, fights alongside Mr. Nobody. His frustration with being pushed aside by his parents fuels his wrath, until they talk him down and reform their family. Following that, a squirrel demon reaches out to Lucius to demand the boy reclaim his throne, adding another mystery to the series.
