Usually when you hear about a band of superheroes you immediately assume X-Men or the Fantastic Four. Warner Bros is hoping to add another group of the strangest superheroes to the list with Doom Patrol.

Warner Bros to Adapt Doom Patrol

According to Variety, Warner Bros. Pictures and Akiva Goldsman are working to create a big-screen adaptation of the DC Comic Doom Patrol under Akiva's Weed Road Pictures.

Scribe Adam Turner has also been picked up to pen the screenplay.

News is sure to set off buzz at Comic-Con. Debuting in 1963, Doom Patrol was often compared to Marvel's X-Men. Both comics follow the exploits of a band of super-powered social misfits ostracized by the rest of the world.

As with X-Men, the Doom Patrol is guided by a wheelchair-bound mentor in fighting evil. Characters include Elasti-Girl, Negative Man and Robotman.

"These are some of the most original, offbeat comicbook characters we have ever come across, and Adam Turner's unique sensibility makes him a perfect fit for the material," Goldsman told Daily Variety.

The only question that remains is the fans response on the return of the "World's Strangest Heroes."

Stay tuned for updates.
