Download The Umbrella Academy : The Umbrella Academy is an American web television series developed by Steve Blackman for Netflix. It is an adaptation of the comic book series of the same name, created by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá, and published by Dark Horse Comics. The plot revolves around a dysfunctional family of superheroes who reunite to solve the mystery of their father’s death, the threat of the apocalypse, and more. The series is produced by Borderline Entertainment, Dark Horse Entertainment and Universal Cable Productions.
In Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy, a bunch of women get pregnant within a day (no, Zeus is not involved) and give birth to children who are endowed with special powers. The babies are adopted by an eccentric entrepreneur. But wait, all this is prelude. The actual drama is set in the present, several years in the future, wherein the children all have grown up and have gone their separate ways.
The said entrepreneur is dead due to seemingly natural causes. And it is this incident that brings the superheroes together. The death seems natural to the coroner, but one of them, Luther Hargreeves (Black Sails and Game of Thrones alum Tom Hopper) senses foul play. The others are not as interested, not because his theory is not compelling, but they simply do not care.
