Today we will be taking a look inside the story of The Umbrella Academy in this blog. We will also go through each character in our Umbrella Academy characters guide. We will discuss the outfits that they wore in the show in this guide that can help you dress like them, so let’s get straight into it.
The Storyline of The Umbrella Academy
The story of The Umbrella Academy revolves around seven children that were adopted by eccentric billionaire Sir Reginal Hargreeves. He intended to train his children so that they could save the world. These children were among the forty-three children that were given birth by forty-three women on the 12th hour of October 1, 1989. Strangely the women that gave birth were not even pregnant before the day started. However, Sir Reginal Hargreeves raised those seven children as a superhero team and named his home “The Umbrella Academy.” Hargreeves did not name his children as he preferred to call them by numbers instead of names. All the children except one were named later on by their mother, who is a robot. The names of all the seven children names are Luther, Diego, Allison, Klaus, Number Five, Ben, and Vanya. All the children except Vanya have unique superpowers of their own.
Sir Reginald is preparing his children so that they can make good use of their superpowers and save the world. However, things did not go as smoothly as Sir Reginald had planned. Sir Reginald’s ambitions were cut short when things took a drastic turn. The children started quarreling with each other, and often fights broke out due to the differences in their divergent personalities and abilities. All of this made the children go in different directions causing the family to split apart. The ones that were left were Sir Reginald, his robotic wife Grace, and his chimp butler Pogo. It has been thirty years since the family split, and a global apocalypse is on the verge of coming, which Sir Reginald sees. He dies after, and it is unclear whether he died of natural cause or committed suicide. The children come together to solve the mystery surrounding their father’s death.
