Okay but I really like how TUA (the show at least, I haven’t read the comics yet) is that they didn’t try to redeem Reginald’s abuse. They didn’t try and say that Reginald loved them in his own way (that was said by Pogo, but it was shown that he didn’t actually love them) or give him a sob back story that was meant to give him justification for his actions. They said that what he did was bad and that there are no excuses. They also did that for Leonard. They showed why he was abusive, but they didn’t say he was justified for it. And I really appreciate that they didn’t try to use past abuse or “love” as a scapegoat.
Literally any of the Hargreeves kids: I’m scared, dad
Reginald: Do you trust me?
*insert Hargreeves kid*: Yes
*Reginald lets them fall*
Reginald: Rule number one, never trust anybody
Hot take but Ben stans who haven’t read the comics have literally created their own fanon character off of like 6 lines and I’m afraid they’re gonna get pissed when season 2 comes around and he gets more development and he doesn’t perfectly fit the character they have created
im bored and its Saturday night so I plan on reviewing characters from the best show: the umbrella academy
TUA SPOILERS OFC!!!!!!!
Luther is a character that’s really hated on, but personally I don’t hate him all that much. Sure, he makes a lot of mistakes throughout the season but he really doesn’t know what it’s like to live without his everyday actions being approved by Sir Reginald. He’s got a lot of issues, and is a dick sometimes, but overall 5/10.
I love Diego and he’s such a good character with great development. In the beginning of episode one, I immediately thought he was a douchebag but I ended up loving his character. He’s so nice… in his own way, of course. But you can see as the series goes on how much he cares about his family and Eudora… :(!! Overall, 10/10. Kind of a dick, but I’m letting it slide because he loves his mom and his knives which makes up for it.
I love Allison so much, even though her “big-sister skills” are questionable. Her character is so *mwah* and I can’t help but love her. She has a big, big heart but sometimes she focuses more on herself than others in the heat of the moment. She made a lot of mistakes with Vanya in the season, which put me on edge, but I thought the scene at the concert with her, Vanya, and the gun <3, really made me SOB. Her character really portrays how nothing can stand in-between sibling bonds, especially when she chooses to save Vanya instead of the world. 8/10.
I love Klaus and he’s one of my favorites, (him, Diego, and Ben). I truly LOVE how much he progressed through the season. I relate to him most out of all character’s by far. When Dave died it was so amazing how Klaus pulled through his addiction just to see him again, which I think is so wonderful. I can’t wait for next season when we get to see more of his powers!! 11/10.
Five’s a real dickhead, but I honestly love how he risked everything to save his family from impending doom. His cocky and ambitious character lowkey annoyed me throughout the series but I was also soft for the other side of him which was trying so hard to save the world. He may not show it, but he loves his family a lot. And he loves Delores which adds 0.5 points. 7.5/10.
I love Ben so much. I feel so utterly bad for him and I’m dying (lmao) to find out how he died. His character is so wonderful and just improves the show by 100% anytime he’s on screen. I love and think it’s so amazing how much he’s trying to help his brother be the amazing person he sees him as. Ben is so wonderful and he needs 800 more minutes, at least, of screen time next season. Ben is one of the best characters in the show for his heartfelt nature. 11/10.
I’m in love with
Ellen Page Vanya. Her beautifully portrayed character makes me SCREAM. Yes, she tried to end the world and had already once killed everyone in a different timeline but that doesn’t matter. She is so kickass and awesome. I feel horrible for how she was treated by her father and her siblings, which Allison tried to make up for during the season. Her powers are so cool, too. I love Vanya, but I feel as though ending the world because of your childhood trauma is a bit much. But we also should remember she didn’t have much control over her powers and her anger must’ve taken the best of her. Her sibling, Luther, also put her in the one place of her childhood that was most traumatic which was so horrible. I’m going have to take away 0.5 points, though. She kinda slit Allison’s throat :/. 9.5/10.
8. Hazel and Cha-Cha
The two most badass characters of the show. I love them so much even though their relationship is a little toxic. But that’s not completely their fault.
9. Leonard Peabody/Harold Jenkins
I hate him, I don’t even know why I included him in this. -1/10.
I love Grace so much! She is the best robot mom in history and I feel so bad for how Reginald treated her. Grace gets a 200/10 from me, chief.
11. Sir Reginald Hargreeves
Who hurt this man to make him such a monster? Reginald is the worst character by far, he hurt and traumatized all of his “children”. Sure, they’re superheroes and need training to save people or whatever but they were just kids. They didn’t deserve to be hurt so badly by the man they deemed their father. 0/10.
12. The Handler
“Wow, what a bitch,” I said ten seconds before falling in love with her. So, whatever. She’s kind of the bad guy but she’s so funny, idk why. I love her. 4/10, just because she did a lot of messed up shit but she just gave me vibes whenever she was onscreen.
Pogo was an enabler to Sir Reginald’s abuse which makes me give him a 2/10. Yes, he cared for the kids but he was an enabler to his abuse and could’ve told them the secrets Reginald kept hidden instead of forcing them all to slowly suffer as they uncover more and more.
14. Agnes Rofa
I LOVE HER SO MUCH SHE IS SUCH A SWEETIE. 1000/10.
ok that’s pretty much it of all the characters I wanted to review/that’s pretty much all there were other than side characters. I love this show so much so :) enjoy my dumbass review

Hmmm I wonder who the lucky lady is 👀
Klaus: Hey, do you know anyone who can teach me how to play the trumpet?
Klaus: I wanna wonder around the academy and annoy the others.
Ben: Technically you don’t actually need to know how to play it for that.
Klaus: You have opened my eyes.

Okay so Justin posted this picture of his decapitated statue on Twitter today:
Notice how the statue prop is dirty, standing on a kinda muddy surface.
