Umbrella Academy writes Elliot Page's transition into plot

The superhero series recently wrapped its third season where a major change was made in the storyline.

Elliot Pages' character came out as a transgender man, adopting the moniker Victor.

The character was previously known as Vanya and his transition on the series was well-received among fans.

This is just one of the many aspects that made the original series a hit, so it really isn't much of a surprise that the fanbase are devastated by its impending end.

But don't fret, The Umbrella Academy still has one more exciting chapter in store!
