The Umbrella Academy: Fans are seen rejecting the new season 3 on Netflix.

The Umbrella Academy Season 2

The Umbrella Academy is a comic book series created by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá, published by Dark Horse Comics. The story follows a group of superpowered children adopted by Sir Reginald Hargreeves, who trains them to save the world. The Umbrella Academy was scheduled to be adapted into a television series for Netflix by Universal Cable Productions, with Way and Bá listed as executive producers.

What is the plot of the story ?

The first book opens with a brief introduction to the Hargreeves family, who live in a large farmhouse in England. Sir Reginald Hargreeves is an industrialist and the head of Hargreeve Industries. He has four children: Pogo and Allison, who are twins; Klaus, who was not adopted and lives somewhere else in England; and Lillith, whom he had many years ago at an unknown date. They all have powers, though not all are known as of yet.

Who is in the cast ? What role did each character portray ?

The cast include Aidan Gallagher , Elliot Page , Ellen Page , Ellen Sandweiss , Genesis Rodriguez , Jake Cusack , Jasmin Savoy Brown , Kiernan Shipka , Lucy Liu and Neil Patrick Harris . In the first volume, Reginald Hargreeves is a wealthy industrialist who apparently does not care about his children’s well-being. The twins are referred to mostly by their first names, with only their last names showing up in dialog. Klaus and Lillith are less important characters, appearing only in the beginning of the story and never being verbally referred to again. They have been trained by Hargreeves since they were young, but are not as well-versed in their powers as the rest of the siblings.

What are the difficulties they face ?

The first obstruction is that all of the children are adopted by Sir Hargreeves, who raises them with little regard for their individuality. They must learn to coexist and function as a team, while maintaining the pretense that they have been raised in an ordinary home. Once they begin receiving media attention, all individuals hired to represent them are instructed to adopt the persona of “normal children”, which results in many inconsistencies in character history. In the first volume, it is hinted that these inconsistencies will be resolved as the story progresses; however, this plot device is not utilized until volume two. The second obstacle is that all of the siblings except Lillith retain their powers when outside of Hargreeves’ care.

Who is the antagonist ? What are its motives ?

Reggie, as he is affectionately called, is the main antagonist of the story. He is a wealthy industrialist and the father of seven superpowered children who have been adopted by him. In their teens, he takes them on a field trip to Paris. However, an attack from a group of terrorists causes the Eiffel Tower to collapse upon them .  And kill all but three of Reginald’s children (Allison, Klaus and Pogo). Reginald survives but does not appear to have any grief over the death of his children until  . After his brother is killed by an assassin named Cha-Cha, causing him to go into seclusion for nearly fifteen years until his last child Lillith arrives at his home.

What are the epic scenes ?

The first epic scene is when the babies’ mother, who is a drug addict, is run over by a car and killed. The second epic scene is when Cha-Cha kills Reginald’s brother. The third epic scene is when the Umbrella Academy fights the Kraken.

Would you recommend watching this ?

I would recommend The Umbrella Academy to someone that enjoys action-filled stories but wants something a little different than the normal superheroes. I loved the first volume and can’t wait to read more!
