The characters of Umbrella Academy have seen numerous things in their lives, from being wiped out by an apocalypse to a moon mission. The seven siblings were adopted by Sir Reginald after their inexplicable birth to build a superhero team that will save the world from upcoming desolation. However, no kid could completely reach the expectation of Sir Reginald as most of them were out of hand. Some didn’t realize they had powers or knew how to control them. He always called them “a big failure” so they eventually moved out of the academy.
Meanwhile, the most untamed kid of Hargreeves Number 5 left home at the age of 13 only. Subsequently, growing up, the siblings became more and more disorganized. Have you ever thought about how their lives would have turned out if they weren’t a part of the academy? Let’s see what fans are bantering on Reddit about this idea presented by a fan.
What if The Umbrella Academy was reversed and there is no Hargreeves sibling?
We have seen several theories and speculations created by fans of the series till now. But this is one of the most curious questions that a fan asked people on Reddit. The post stated:
“What do you think their lives would’ve been like had they not been adopted by Reginald (and their moms not killed by Harlan)? We see clips of their moms, so how do you imagine their lives?”
He added his opinion to the question saying that Five would be living with his mom and both of these geniuses might have great chemistry. Also, he might be named after a famous scientist seeing his intelligence and mathematical calculations. Whereas Diego would still be his mama’s boy, becoming a great chef. Seeing the idea, fans jumped with their craziest imaginations they could possibly think of. Although it’s still unpredictable that they would have been better because chaos is kinda part of their lives. Wherever they go, or whatever they do, it follows the Hargreeves siblings.
