Biography

Laura De Mille was originally a French stage actress. After an automobile accident, she developed a dual good/evil split personality. At this point, she attracted the notice of The Brain and his associate, Monsieur Mallah. With Mallah's help, the Brain performed surgery on De Mille that was, from his perspective, successful, sublimating her good personality and allowing her evil personality to remain dominant. As Madame Rouge, De Mille became the only female member of the Brotherhood of Evil, and assisted the Brotherhood in its continuing conflicts against the Doom Patrol. At first, Madame Rouge was simply a master of disguise; subsequent surgery by the Brain eventually gave her the ability to alter her appearance and stretch her limbs.

Later, Rouge's split personality manifested again, with her good personality occasionally appearing.

The Chief (Dr. Niles Caulder) is a fictional character from DC Comics and starred in the Doom Patrol comic. ...


Ultimately, Rouge's mind reverted back to its evil state, causing her to seek vengeance against both the Brotherhood of Evil and the Doom Patrol for their previous interference. She was apparently successful in murdering both groups. Years later, Robotman and the Teen Titans tracked down Rouge and her ally, General Zahl. Beast Boy (then Changeling) killed Rouge, although at the moment of her death, her good side apparently manifested, she forgave Changeling and called to Niles, her apparent true love.

Powers and abilities

Originally, Madame Rouge was a master of disguise. Later, she gained the ability to alter her appearance to disguise herself as any person, and to stretch her limbs.


In the Teen Titans animated series, Rouge retains her abilities of disguise and stretching, but her powers appear to be closer to complete body control. She can reform her body, repairing any damage yet seen, can "flow" through fences similarly to the Terminator T-1000, and has sufficient strength to throw people around like dolls with her stretched limbs. She can mimic voices and use her body to surround and smother her opponents. She can be hurt by flame or frozen by cold, and has trouble maintaining a disguise in high temperatures, but appears to be able to repair damage simply by shape-shifting into an undamaged form.

One of the horrible advantages of Rouge's powers is that they appear to have no limit-- or, if there is a limit, Rouge has never reached it. In the animated series she could extend her limbs to ridiculous lengths for surprise attacks such as seizing an enemy in her arms-- without limit to how far she outstretched them.

As the most conventionally superpowered of the core Brotherhood, the Brain appears to view Rouge as one of his most valuable agents as he sent her to take out Wildebeest, Hotspot, Kid Flash and Robin. She also sees potential in Jinx as becoming a full Brotherhood member. She does not think much of her at first, as she bullies and demeans Jinx, the other HIVE members, and their base; however, this changes once Jinx attacks her and this impresses her, as Rouge was Jinx's idol. Along with the rest of the brotherhood, she was flash-frozen into an ice sculpture at the end of "Titans Together", ironically by Wildebeest, Hotspot, and Jinx; all of whom she had antagonized.
