Stop me if you’ve heard this one: a group of kids with extraordinary powers are raised together to save the world. No, no, it’s not the X-Men. It’s The Umbrella Academy, Netflix’s new series based on the Gerard Way and Gabriel Ba comic book.

They learn to use their powers for good, but when they reunite as adults after Hargreaves’ funeral, they have some lingering trauma to work out. Then Number Five (Aidan Gallagher) reappears with some bad news about the end of the world.
