25 Umbrella Academy Season Two Fan Theories
Ben Was Ripped Apart By Monsters He Unleashed
The official story so far is that Ben died during a particularly gruesome mission. While the “Ben’s in an alternate dimension” theory seems to be the most popular, some Reddit users like thatonedudeguyman that using his powers (aka summoning a terrifying tentacle monster) is what led to his demise, with the monster no longer being within his control and destroying him in its path of violence. With this theory, his ghost would still be aging and look unharmed when talking to Klaus because Klaus accidentally resurrected Ben as a living ghost with his powers while trying to bring Ben back to life.
