Decades ago, Cliff Steele was on top of the world. He is a successful race car driver, a family man, and has earned a moderate reputation and fortune. However, his picture-perfect life begins to fall apart as his marriage falls apart, his relationship with his daughter, Clara (Bethany Anne Lind), deteriorates and his temper… become bad. While on top of a sad cherry tree, he and his family were involved in a horrific car accident in 1988 that left his wife, Kate (Katie Gunderson), and nearly killed him, if it weren’t for Niles’ intervention. Caulder.
Caulder quickly transferred Steele – then 32 years old since he was born in 1956 – into a cyborg body shortly after his accident. That means by the time “Doom Patrol” Season 3 came out, he was already in his 60s. While one might guess that makes him a senior member of the Doom Patrol, most of his teammates beat him by a margin. Larry Trainor and Rita Farr are both in their 90s, and Chief and his adopted daughter, Dorothy Spinner (Abigail Monterey), both in three-digit territory (via Rant screen).
If Cliff Steele and the rest of the Doom Patrol team have proven anything, you don’t have to be a youngster to be a superhero.
