What is the Umbrella Academy plot?
To begin with, the Umbrella Academy follows the storyline of a twisted family in a world full of the chances of apocalypse at any time soon.
In the backstory of the show, seven women in different parts of the world got pregnant out of nowhere. After nine months, these 7 women gave birth to 7 children with a strange vibe to them. Of course, these children were born out of wedlock and other circumstances, so, Sir Reginald Hargreeves adopts all seven children and allows them to study under the Umbrella Academy.
Although, with time, six of seven children develop their superpowers. But, Vanya didn’t show signs of having any supernatural vibe to her.
In the present time, all seven children are grown ups and have their own way of living. For example, Luther is living on the Moon as part human and part Ape. Klaus is a drug addict, Vanya is a simple violinist, and others are also busy in exploring their powers beyond words.
However, one day all seven siblings reunited in order to find out what happened to dead Sir Reginald Hargreeves. On one hand where siblings were troubling to deal with the death of their stepfather, “Number Five” returns from the future and informs his siblings about an apocalypse impending. This leads to the urges of protection and suspicions among the siblings and they start their journey to find out their motive in life and also, learn about their distinct families.
