'Doom Patrol': Crazy Jane's powers are even more explosive than we expected; here's what's she's done so far!
Most of the 'Doom Patrol' characters have some really strange and unique powers, but none come close to Crazy Jane's capability.
DC's 'Doom Patrol' may just be the most popular superhero series to air this year. While DC may not make a killing in the box office anymore, their live-action series tend to be more intricate and well thought out compared to their live-action movies. Though 'Doom Patrol' may be one of the hardest comics to convert to live-action because of the complexity of characters, storylines, and for just being outright demented, this series has been translated on screen flawlessly!
Crazy Jane is one of the five zany team members who inhabit the 'Doom Patrol' team and her powers lie in her 64 different personalities, with each power corresponding to a different personality, thereby giving Jane 64 different powers. Talk about complex! We're now three episodes into the series, and we've seen a surprising amount of personalities appear so early on in the show, and we've covered the personalities and their powers that we've seen so far - from her most dominant to her most passive.
Crazy Jane: This appears as Jane's dominant personality. She has no powers other than being sane and reasonable, which may just be her power.
Sylvia: She's described by Mr. Nobody (The Villain) as having a spooky voice and a moody personality, and bears Jane's feelings of claustrophobia.
Hammerhead: This personality seems to take over when Jane's in trouble, and she was able to punch Robotman up a flight of stairs in their mansion without hurting herself, which shows some level of invulnerability and super strength.
The Hangman's Daughter: We see Hangman's Daughter as the quiet one who just loves getting lost in her paintings. We have yet to see whether she can interact with the paintings like she did in the comics. Her full name is the Hangman's Beautiful Daughter, which is taken from an album title by 'The Incredible String Band'.
Sun Daddy: This personality comes out in order to protect those around her, and we see Jane now sporting a giant sun for a head and a body like the Flaming Torch in 'Fantastic Four', which is also able to fly and throw fireballs at unsuspecting villains.
Baby Doll: One of Jane's more innocent personalities, Baby Doll views the world through rose-colored glasses, and is a big fan of Cyborg, but scared of Robotman.
Scarlet Harlot: While not identified by name in the series, we see a personality of Jane's creep out in the first episode who says "Please touch me" immediately after another personality tells Robotman not to touch her while she's having a seizure.
Flit: We see Flit appear in the interrogation room with Dr. Caulder, teleporting around the room while ignoring the doctor's questions. We also see her use this power in episode 3, where she teleports part of the team to Paraguay in search of Dr. Caulder.
The Wall-Crawler: In the same interrogation room, we see Jane sticking to the wall, and though this power doesn't correspond to any of her personalities in the book, we're sure to see more of her in future episodes.
Flaming Katy: Flaming Katy or Katy, is one of Jane's more anti-social personalities. Katy is pyrokinetic in the comics, but on the show, Katy seems to be a woman made of living fire. She doesn't like being interrogated, and Cyborg gets the brunt of her wrath when he keeps asking Baby Doll to bring Katy out.
Lucy Fugue: Lucy is able to manipulate and generate electricity, and on the show, she actually shocks Cyborg into unconsciousness.
Silver Tongue: One of the more quirky but deadly personas to inhabit Jane, Silver Tongue is able to speak words which become a physical reality, and is able to harness these words into useable weapons. She sports silver lipstick and silver makeup on her chin while having her hair done up into small dirty braids. This personality never shies away from a fight and has taken down numerous foes without breaking a sweat.
As mentioned before, Jane has 64 different personalities, and with the show adapting almost all strange elements from the book, we'll definitely get to see some more of her strange personalities in the near future.
'Doom Patrol' will air weekly on Friday, exclusively on www.dcuniverse.com
