What is The Umbrella Academy about?

The Umbrella Academy is about a family of superheroes who join forces to investigate the mysterious death of their father, and overcome the threat of the apocalypse.

One day in 1989, forty-three babies are born unexpectedly to women who previously showed no signs of pregnancy.

All fort-three of them develop supernatural powers and six of them are adopted by Sir Reginald Hargreeves.
