Do other super-teams lose members like the Doom Patrol? No. Of course not. If they did, nobody would get into the "hero" business.
~ Robot Man on the group.

Robot Man (also known as Clifford "Cliff" Steele) is a member of the Doom Patrol. He is the only superhero to appear in every version of the team since he, and the team, were introduced together in June 1963.
