As the first transgender superhero in a major science fiction/fantasy series, Viktor from The Umbrella Academy paved the way for more diverse and inclusive representation in mainstream media. It's not often that a character's gender transitions along with the actor's, and I think this show nailed it. You can see that Elliot Page's involvement in developing the character's storyline adds an extra layer of authenticity to Viktor's journey.

I also read Page's memoir, Pageboy, which includes his experiences as a trans man and his struggles with mental health and relationships. I resonate with the gender dysphoria described in the book, and it makes me appreciate Elliot Page's portrayal of Viktor even more.
