Ed's Notes: A one time friend and associate of Niles Caulder. When his wife dies in a battle between Green Lantern and Major Disaster he developed a hatred of superheroes. Using am, old, Top-Secret paper Caulder had written about the public perception of superheroes, Goodman sought to use this information to turn the public against them, using artificially powered (and mentally unstable) patients of his to do this by posing as them. (Yeah, so he's basically Syndrome, only with Psychiatry and mental patients rather than engineering, tech and robots.)

I cannot find ANY reference to this character ANYWHERE. I don't believe he was created by Mayfair, as he was in the DP Sourcebook, rather than the Moonshot module, but... nothing. Not a picture, not a first appearance. No idea. if anyone can help me out with this, please let me know, because I'm coming up blank. Thanks!

  1. Dr. Goodman appeared in Doom Patrol issues 5 & 6, February & March 1988, and was a dead ringer for Niles Caulder, except that he was fully able-bodied. His "heroes" were called Thunder, Hellringer, and Goldstar. His entire history was told by Robotman when he was defeated.
