25 Umbrella Academy Season Two Fan Theories
Monocle Is Their *Biological* Father
This theory, shockingly, does not come from Reddit. Screen Rant author Alexandra August points out that in the comics, the insemination of the biological mothers of the powerful children is explained by an interspecies, intergalactic boxing match. It didn’t make a lot of sense, but it definitely set the tone for the series. She sees that leaving this particular bit of lore out of the Netflix show might have been to set a slightly less random tone for the television adaptation, but that also leaves the children’s parentage up for debate. Reginald’s fireflies could have been the way alien Reginald (another theory) and his wife procreate, making him the sibling’s biological father.
