If you thought raising kids would be easier if only you were a superhero, think again. Jupiter's Legacy, Netflix's newest No. 1 streaming show, embarks on the ambitious journey of unraveling the origin story of the world's first superheroes—and their relationships with their kids. Based on the comics by Scottish writer Mark Millar (Kick-Ass), the show stars Josh Duhamel as the Utopian, a powerful Superman-like figure, as he tries to prepare his children and their contemporaries to take up the mantle of fighting bad guys and keeping his strict moral code. The goal? Save the world, but keep your tactics fair, just, and polite.

The story flashes back between present day and the 1920s, telling the origin story of how the Utopian and the first group of superheroes got their powers in the first place. The show stars a number of emerging actors and faces you may have seen before, but can't quite place. Here's our guide to the cast of Jupiter's Legacy, so you can keep all the heroes straight as you enter what Netflix hopes to be its own big comic book franchise.
