These days there are more superhero shows on the air than you can count on both hands. So perhaps it comes as no surprise that on shows where differences (i.e. superpowers!) are celebrated, so are LGBT characters. Whether they're superheroes, allies, or villains, there's a growing list of queer characters on your favorite superhero series.

Now one 'Umbrella Academy' character is joining the list. Elliot Page shared the first photo of his character sitting at a diner counter on Twitter March 29 and wrote, "Meet Viktor Hargreeves." Page previously played Vanya Hargreeves, whose superpowers are channeled through music, in the first two seasons.

Netflix shared the tweet and wrote, "Welcome to the family, Viktor — we're so happy you're here." Page's character will come out as transgender in season 3, Entertainment Weekly confirmed.
