Kranus is a powerful enemy of the Doom Patrol. The Brain attempted to ambush the Doom Patrol with a giant robot named Kranus, operating under the cover story he was an alien robot emperor. Brain sent out a strange signal from a small island to lure the Patrol into battle. It is armed with an energy scepter that fires deadly bolts of electricity. Even if parts of the robot are separated, they can still operate independent of the main body.
Television HistoryHe makes a cameo in the show Batman the Brave and the Bold in the episode "The Last Patrol". In a montage of the patrol's past battles he is shown as one of them. In fact a small part of the clip is homage to a comic where he fought them (see picture above).
