The Umbrella Academy is part of a ten-episode Netflix series spanning multiple timelines and various genres: episode broken family drama, part Y or z-Men-inspired adventure, part suspense heist, part dark comedy deadpan.
Based on an ensemble cast consisting of Ellen Page, Robert Sheehan, and Mary J. Blige, this series follows a strange, reticent superheroes’ family, who will join forces to avoid the apocalypse.
The seven children were born in 1989 to mothers who had not been previously pregnant and were then adopted by the enigmatic millionaire Reginald Hargreeves (Colm Feore), who demonstrated little interest in raising them, but then taught them to use their abilities in becoming world-famous superheroes. After the death of Hargreeves, the siblings unwillingly come together for a meeting of the family that quickly becomes a task.
Take a stroll through the characters that lie at the core of the story before you dive into the fascinating world of The Umbrella Academy.
The only sibling raised in Hargreeves who had no superpowers, Vanya, was radically transformed before the coming disaster. Vanya is guarded and profoundly depressed, with a lot of hostility to her late father and her odd parents, and a deep feeling of insignificance because of their lack of influence. She has her one outlet, but she explores her untapped ability as a violinist, as the season continues.
A former worldwide renowned actress who traded for a peaceful life, after her dependency on it, she has controlled several of her ties, including marriage. She even swore off using her superpower. She has a complicated relationship with Luther that is being investigated all over the show.
Klaus is in the process of rehabilitation, as the series starts, but quickly recovers. A lovely rogue and a drug addict who stumbles in the life of any party, until he’s drawn to the world to save. His hard-going ways believe in a tragic history and a deep loss, which he rarely mentions but begins to overtake him as the series continues.
At the age of ten, The Boy was missing as he spent 50 years living in the future where he lived 50 years and then finding a way back in time. As he returned today, given the emotional condition of his 60s, he was forever imprinted in his 10-year-old body. His powers have made him a mortal murderer and a key information source for the imminent apocalypse.
In comparison to his more cautious brothers, Diego, a rough insurgent with a chip on his shoulder, has taken life as an aggressive policeman. He rivals Luther intensely and believes that he must instead become the leader of his family.
Hazel and Cha-Cha
The police agency, Temps Aeternalis, it was an off-kilter pair of violent assassinations who operate towards preserving the dignity of the time by removing anomalies. Cha-cha is one of Netflix’s most-changed characters; the two are men in the comics.
The cast is augmented by the cruel and negligent father of the siblings Colm Feore, regarded as the Monocle of Sir Reginald Hargreeves; Ethan Hwang as Ben, another of his super-siblings from Hargreeves, who was killed in mysterious circumstances before the series.
