The greatest superheroes have more flaws than strengths. Just look at Superman. He’s virtually invulnerable, and DC has no idea what to do with him. Of course, any hero whose talents are limited enough to create dramatic potential isn’t too difficult to take down by a well-equipped villain, which is why nothing beats a solid team of superheroes with complementary abilities. Fortunately, the Umbrella Academy is one of the best teams in the world, and the Netflix series based on their exploits has returned for a new season. But, given that Season One launched more than a year ago, here’s a refresher on the Hargreeves, their superpowers, and where they were at the start of Season Two, in numerical order, of course. Thus, this list is a guide to all the characters and their powers that are in the Umbrella Academy. Sounds Interesting? If yes, then grab onto the list as this is going to be the most amazing one.

7. Luther Hargeeves/Number One (Tom Hopper):


Reginald Hargeeves’ loyalist son/science experiment, like his other siblings, crashed landed in early 1960s Dallas after his brother, Number Five, sent the clan back in time when they failed to stop the apocalypse. He was able to get work as a bodyguard for an infamous local club owner, as well as make money by competing in underground bare-knuckle boxing contests, thanks to his incredible strength and simian DNA enhanced body. I’m not sure why even the toughest Dallas tough think they have a chance against a guy with the upper body of a silverback gorilla.

6. Diego Hargreeves/Number Two (David Castañeda):


Diego isn’t one for subterfuge, so the moment he gets to Dallas, he chooses to try to save John F. Kennedy’s life—and to tell the entire world about it. As a result, he was admitted to a mental institution. He has the capacity to control the trajectory of moving items, which is why throwing knives are his primary weapon of choice. Unfortunately, that doesn’t help a guy in a straitjacket.

5. Allison Hargreeves/Number Three (Emmy Raver-Lampman):


Allison has a terrible time in 1960s Dallas after crash-landing and walking into a diner only to be welcomed by a “Whites Only” sign. Fortunately, she is taken in by a community of black civil rights warriors and meets a fairly cool guy. Even after regaining her voice, which she had lost at the end of the previous season due to a throat-slashing incident, she is still hesitant to use her authority to force others to heed her demands. That makes sense—the ability to dominate others should be used cautiously. And the season would be done in about five minutes if Allison went around “rumoring” others to her will to fix the family’s problems.

4. Klaus Hargreeves/Number Four (Robert Sheehan):


Klaus has always had the ability to communicate with the dead, but he’s recently found the ability to make ghosts physical, which came in handy when he was able to channel Ben’s powers during the last struggle against the Commission at the end of Season One. When Klaus lands in Texas, he uses his abilities to establish a cult, convincing his adoring followers that he is a mystically endowed guru.

3. Number Five (Aidan Gallagher):


Five’s gift is the reason everyone is in Dallas in the first place: he has the ability to travel between time and space, making micro jumps to leap across a room or even decades. At the start of Season Two, he crashes lands in the middle of another apocalypse, only to be rescued by his old foe Hazel, who sets Five on the path to averting the end of the world. Oh, and although everyone else is 31, Five is trapped in the body of a 14-year-old due to a time-travel incident.

2. Ben Hargreeves/Number Six (Justin H. Min):


Ben is the most considerate and sensible member of the family. Unfortunately, he’s also no longer alive, having been slain years ago in an as-yet-unrevealed superhero mishap. But Klaus can see and communicate with him, making the Hargreeves’ late brother a significant presence on the show. Ben’s power when he was on our plane of existence was the capacity to summon Lovecraftian tentacles from his chest.

1. Vanya Hargreeves/Number Seven (Ellen Page):


Vanya had spent her entire childhood believing that she was the only one of her siblings who lacked supernatural abilities—that she was a dud. However, it was revealed at the end of Season One that she was the most powerful of them, and that their father had drugged Vanya in order to keep her out-of-control abilities dormant. Vanya went off her medicine and reawakened her power to change sound waves into energy, which she subsequently used to break off a chunk of the moon and precipitate the extinction of all life on Earth, thanks to the late and lamented Leonard Peabody. She crashes lands in Dallas, unable to recall anything other than her own identity and entirely unaware that she is one of the most powerful beings on the planet.
