The Umbrella Academy is a success also critical that the audience for Netflix. However, it has left a few storylines from the comic from which it is inspired and it is a shame !
The Umbrella Academy is the latest big success in the date for Netflix, far exceeding the hearings of the other series super-heroic, they also learned of comics famous. However, some adaptations television sometimes suffer from comparison with the books that have inspired ; plots exciting being left aside for the sake of consistency, or simply by choice of the writers. The adventures of the extraordinary siblings Hargreeves have not escaped this pitfall. Though excellent, some of the stories of The Umbrella Academy, the series – including the filming of season 2 is preparing would have been able to incorporate ingredients of the comic made in Dark Horse.
The power of Klaus
Klaus is in reality a super-hero very powerful !
It is during the final confrontation between Vanya and his brothers and sister that we realized how Klaus used only one small part of his powers. In the comics, this achievement is much earlier. Killed by Hazel and Cha-Cha, the young man manages to return to life, stop the Moon that threatens to destroy the Earth and to tele-transport her soul into a television in order to wake up Luther, which has been removed !
The origin of Reginald Hargreeves
The mysterious Reginald Hargreeves
If the season 1 of The Umbrella Academy flew over the plot concerning the origins of Sir Reginald Hargreeves, it is without a doubt to come back in the next few episodes (at least hopefully !). In the comics, on the other hand, the roots for extra-terrestrial of the adoptive father of Luther, Diego, Allison, Klaus, Number Five, Ben, and Vanya are clearly established, and it is his intelligence on human-to-human, which has allowed him to understand our expectations, create the right inventions and to become extremely rich.
The corrections made on Number Five
The truth comes from the mouth of Number Five
In the series of Netflix, we see, thanks to a mounting, Number Five is little by little transformed into a killer, but keep behind his sarcasm some humanity. However, in the books, “The Commission” went further in its corrections on the boy to him and injecting it in the blood the DNA of the greatest assassins in history, detaching the passage of his emotions and his empathy.
