Shows Like The Umbrella Academy
Marvel’s The Runaways started out as a comic, just like the Umbrella Academy, way back in 2003. It wasn’t until 2017 when Hulu picked it up and adapted the comics into a live-action series. The show follows a group of troubled teenagers (each with their own special abilities) and their parents who are all part of an organization known as The Pride.
During one organization meeting, they discover that their parents are actually supervillains who sacrifice teenagers. In an upscaled act of teenage rebellion, the group flees from their home and band together to put an end to their parent’s evil schemes.
Like the Umbrella Academy, The Runaways is packed with some snazzy action scenes as well as that familial bond that ties these characters together. These teens have a lot of growing up to do, and it’s really more about them learning their way around the world without their parents.
