Doom Patrol Season 3: Who is Madame Rouge?

Screen Rant

Madame Rouge was bought in light in the pages of DC Comics back in 1964 in Doom Patrol #86. She was a French actress, who, after a car crash suffered from a split personality.

Doom Patrol villain, the Brain, and his partner, Monsieur Mallah, executed surgery on her that kept her devilish personality as the dominant one and has gone on to be a major villain for the Doom Patrol as a member of the Brotherhood of Evil. She posses elasticity that allows her to stretch her body parts to any size & allows herself to shapeshift into any looks she chooses.

Madame Rouge’s history suggests that she will be positioned as a foil for Rita Farr (April Bowlby) this season. Both are heroines who possess elasticity as a power. Rita can morph her body but has not quite read how to control her shapeshifting abilities.

Rita is currently on the path to master her abilities & wanting to become a superhero, so a villain with similar powers could help Rita grow as a role. Madame Rouge having a split personality also would put her as a foil to Jane (Diane Guerrero) this season.

Madame Rouge’s looks also suggest that season 3 might see the intro of the Brain & the Brotherhood of Evil. The Brotherhood of Evil was referenced by Mr. Nobody in the first season of Doom Patrol & also before he gained his powers, he was fired from the Brotherhood of Evil by the Brain & substituted with an intelligent french gorilla, a reference to Monsieur Mollah. Madame Rouge’s intro looks forward to hinting that the team’s biggest enemy might be coming for them in the third season.
