Start flexing those Muscle Mystery powers readers because we just learned who will play The Hero Of The Beach in Doom Patrols forthcoming episode 12.
Playing Flex Mentallo will be Devan Long, known recently for his roles in Bosch, The Magicians, and Marvels: Runaways.
Flex Mentallo was created by Grant Morrison and Richard Case debuting in Doom Patrol #35 who would stick around with Doom Patrol to help them defeat the Ant Farm and others. In later issues we would learn of his origins, that of being a scrawny bullied kid on the beach having answered a gain muscle ad giving him the powers of altering reality by flexing.
This is his first outing in live action so it’ll be interesting how they adapt him. So far Doom Patrol has done fairly well in that regard.
