Umbrella Academy Wiki
This article is about the Umbrella Academy from the Netflix series. You may be looking for the Umbrella Academy from the Dark Horse comics.

The Umbrella Academy was a group formed by Sir Reginald Hargreeves. It is comprised of seven of the babies born to forty-three women who gave birth simultaneously without explanation in 1989. The group frequently uses time travel to stop the impending apocalypse, and fights the time moderation organization known as the Temps Commission. Their last attempt to save humanity by altering the timeline resulted in the wiping of their formation and the creation of the Sparrow Academy, with Lila Pitts later joining the group as they face the danger of the recently created Kugelblitz, which threatens to wipe out all of reality.

43 children around the world are born by mysterious circumstances, as their mothers did not show any signs of pregnancy at all until labor began. 7 of these children are subsequently adopted by Sir Reginald Hargreeves, with the intention to raise them as a superhero team.[1]

After an argument with his father, Number Five leaves The Umbrella Academy and time travels for the first time, jumping to April 1, 2019, the day of the apocalypse.

Ben Hargreeves is killed on a mission, but remains with his brother Klaus as a ghost.

Number Five makes a deal with The Handler to join the Commission and escape the apocalypse.

The apocalypse is brought on by Viktor Hargreeves and the entire human race is wiped out. Number Five arrives shortly after via time travel, and is stuck there for 45 years.
