Fan Theories on How Ben aka Number 6 Died in 'The Umbrella Academy' (SPOILERS)

By

The first breakout hit from Netflix in 2019 is the comic book-inspired series The Umbrella Academy. The show, which premiered on Feb. 15, follows a group of estranged siblings with superhuman powers who are forced to come together after the death of their father, Sir Reginald Hargreeve. 

However, there is one sibling missing from the reunion and that is Ben, aka Number Six. Since the series kicks off following the events surrounding his death, viewers of The Umbrella Academy — who have not read the original comics by My Chemical Romance singer Gerard Way — are left wondering what happened to Ben.
