The Umbrella Academy: 4 Theories About Ben's Mysterious Death
The Umbrella Academy's siblings are as dysfunctional as any superhero family can get, especially when one of the brothers, Ben, is a ghost living vicariously through his brother Klaus. Ben, played by Justin Min, was the sixth member of The Umbrella Academy, a coalition of superpowered children all born on the same day and later adopted by the rich and eccentric Sir Reginald Hargreeves. In season one, it is revealed that Ben's death during one of the academy's missions was one reason for the group's disbandment, leading each child to deal with their trauma of childhood stardom and abusive upbringing on their own. Although Ben remains a vital character as a moral compass and occasional fighting partner for Klaus, the details around his death are still obscured, but these theories could provide the answers we've all been looking for.
