What I loved about this series was its ability to represent different people. From the bad guys (even as we wonder just how bad they really are) to the superhero family, this series is not shy about representing many different people.

In fact, there is something very beautiful about this adopted family of superheroes all being unique and even the people they deal with outside of the family. From an epic female villain to a female black assassin to a gay superhero — it feels as if the entire purpose of this story and the cast is to represent the real world.

Even as the story looks to represent many different people, it doesn’t try to make it overtly obvious. Instead, it is all about telling the best story possible, and they do exactly that. Every character is able to tell a story that has nothing to do with race or sexuality, and it makes The Umbrella Academy that much more impressive, because it is all about the acting and storyline.
