Category: Entertainment,Gossip

The Umbrella Academy has built up quite the following since it dropped on Netflix on February 15. There are a total of 10 episodes in the first season which will released all at once. The Umbrella Acadmey takes its cue from the comic books by My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way. The Umbrella Academy concentrates on a family of dysfunctional superheroes trying to halt the end of the world.

WARNING: This article contains spoilers from The Umbrella Academy

Seven of the children were taken in by the mysterious Sir Reginald Hargreeves (played by Colm Feore) as part of his school named The Umbrella Academy.

During their time in The Umbrella Academy, the children were educated and became a superhero team under the tutelage of Sir Reginald.

Vanya Hargreeves (Ellen Page) - also known as Number 7 and The White Violin - was kept apart from the other children by the eccentric billionaire after she didn’t seem to display any superhuman abilities.

However, as the series went on it emerged Vanya was perhaps the most powerful one out of her superhero siblings and could bring about the apocalypse.

Sir Reginald had been suppressing Vanya’s powers through medication for most of her life and consequently, she felt like a misfit.

During the course of the series, Vanya formed a relationship with a character called Leonard Peabody who turned out to be Harold Jenkins, a super fan of The Umbrella Academy rather than being genuinely interested in her.  

The pair formed a close but destructive bond as the truth about his past came spilling out.

What are Number 7's powers?

Vanya was outraged when she found out that she had superpowers surpassing those of her brother and sisters, leading her to trigger the apocalypse.

The superhero always thought her gifts were her musical ability on the violin hence her alter-ego name.

Number 7 actually has the power to create destructive waves of force by playing the violin, which can fling people through the air and impale them on objects.

She can also destroy buildings through the force of her violin playing. Vanya also triggers the end of the world after she seeks revenge on those who have hidden the truth about her powers from her.

Towards the end of season one, Vanya uses her powers to cut her sister Allison's throat after learning she's helped to suppress her abilities. 

Vanya launched a violin bow at Allison to stop her from being able to talk and so unable to use her powers. 

Many fans have since been wondering whether Allison is dead and if she survived the attack.

Some of the other powers among the members of The Umbrella Academy include Luther Hargreeves (Tom Hopper) - also known as Number 1 and Spaceboy - who has superhuman strength.

There is also Allison Hargreeves (Emmy Raver-Lampman) or Number 3 or The Rumor who can alter reality.

Another key member is Klaus Hargreeves (Robert Sheehan) - better known as Number 4 and The Séance - who has telekinesis, the ability to contact the dead and levitate.

Speaking about playing Vanya, Hollywood actress Page said her character had an “interesting” story arc through the course of the series.

She explained to USA Today: "When you're folding in on yourself and you're numb to the world and you don't know how to relate to it, it's needless to say hard to blossom in any way at all, whether it's personal life, professional life, what have you.

HOW DID BEN DIE IN THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY?

“Obviously this is Vanya going on an awakening of some sort."

Page revealed she had a violin double to stand in for her in the scenes where Vanya was performing but had taken lessons for the role.

She remarked it was “really hard”, going on to say: “Really, the goal was to just try and make me look as comfortable as humanly possible.”

The Juno and Inception star went on to admit: “For me on a personal level, I have to say this is one of my favorite [sic] characters I've ever gotten to play."

Will there be another series of The Umbrella Academy?

There's been no official word yet from Netflix but it's also probably too early to say at this stage as well.

Netflix will be looking at how well the show performs before making a decision either way. 

However, the story was left open for a follow-up and there are several volumes of the comics by Way.   

There have also been questions over whether we could see other numbers in a potential season two.

Some fans have speculated about a relationship between Number Five and Vanya after she admitted leaving the porch light on for him in the hopes he would come home.

There has been some speculation that season two could see Nimber Eighr making an appearance.
