Beginner’s guide to ‘The Umbrella Academy.’

Jumping timelines can have its consequences, and no one knows it better than the seven Hargreeves siblings from The Umbrella Academy.

Based on a comic book series by Gerard Way, Netflix’s science fiction show has it all—aforementioned time jumping, relatable sibling rivalry, action, thrill, love, and comedy.

Its third season will land on Wednesday. Before that, here’s a detailed introduction to the series.

Who are the seven siblings?

Firstly, the seven siblings—Luther, Diego, Allison, Klaus, Five, Ben, and Victor (earlier Vanya)—aren’t biological siblings.

As the inaugural episode narrates, 43 unrelated women across the world gave birth to children on October 1, 1989.

Weirdly enough, none of these women were pregnant before the day of parturition.

Knowing about this, an uber-rich industrialist Sir Reginald Hargreeves managed to adopt seven of these kids.

What is The Umbrella Academy?

So, what does the title mean?

As Hargreeves expected, all the children (except Vanya/Victor) turned out to have superpowers.

Banking on it, the billionaire formed The Umbrella Academy aka a group of crime-fighting teenager superheroes.

However, the ruthless training and dispassionate upbringing left the seven siblings utterly broken and troubled as adults.

So much so that nearly every one of them loathes their father.

Siblings’ self-destructive natures aside, apocalypse is main villain here

No matter how interesting the relationship dynamics between the siblings and their father are, the Hargreeves have bigger problems going on.

Five—who can travel in time and space—finds out the world is going to get destroyed in an apocalypse in Season 1.

Thus, the seven are forced to put aside their feelings and cooperate.

However, they land in more apocalypse-caused troubles in Season 2.

This is how Season 2 ended

Coming to Season 2 finale, the siblings stopped the apocalypse and returned back home but in an alternate timeline.

Unfortunately, their father was still alive here and he adopted a different bunch of kids who are part of The Sparrow Academy.

We’ll get to see what awaits the siblings shortly.

Both previous seasons have 10 episodes, so don’t wait, go and binge them all!

Before going into Season 3, let us tell you about the members of The Sparrow Academy. Comprising seven siblings, the members are Marcus, Ben (yes, same Ben but different personality), Fei, Alphonso, Sloane, Jayme, and Christopher aka Cube. Let the siblings’ battle begin!

The Umbrella Academy Season 3 finally premieres this week, continuing the superpowered, time-hopping adventures of the dysfunctional Hargreeves siblings. As such, here’s a quick Season 2 refresher to jog your memory and get you ready for the new episodes.

If you’re about to hit play on The Umbrella Academy‘s new season and are itching to get started, all you really need to know is that the disaster convoy known as the Hargreeves family accidentally created an alternate timeline, in which they have just landed. Here the Umbrella Academy doesn’t exist, replaced instead with the Sparrow Academy. Also, the Hargreeves’ ghost brother Ben (Justin H. Min) finally moved on during the last season, leaving the new timeline’s very-much-alive Ben as the only Ben around, while Diego (David Castañeda) left his previously Temps Commission-aligned super ex-girlfriend Lila (Ritu Arya) in the literal past.

While it isn’t explicitly stated, it’s strongly implied that this new timeline was caused by the Hargreeves siblings meeting a past version of their dad Reginald Hargreeves (Colm Feore) during their time-travelling adventures in the ’60s. His disappointment in the group appears to have influenced his decision to adopt and raise them, with the only one of the original seven who is now a member of the Sparrow Academy being the aforementioned Ben — the one child Reginald didn’t meet.

That should be enough to stave off most of your confusion. But if you want to be extra up to date on exactly what the Hargreeves did in Season 2 and where they ended up, we also have you covered.

Here’s everything you need to know before diving into The Umbrella Academy‘s third season.

Number 1: Luther Hargreeves became a boxer and continued pining after his sister

I regret to inform you that the Umbrella Academy’s resident giant incest space ape man still has the hots for his sister. 

After Five’s time travel at the end of Season 1 went awry, the Hargreeves were scattered across the early ’60s and forced to fend for themselves. Luther (Tom Hopper) landed in 1962, where he lived a quiet life fighting in underground boxing rings and working security for his new mentor Jack Ruby (John Kapelos). Yes, this is the same Jack Ruby who later killed John F. Kennedy’s killer Lee Harvey Oswald, like a messed up historical murder nesting doll.

This was probably the psychologically healthiest situation Luther had ever been in, but it was not to last. He eventually ran into his sister Allison (Emmy Raver-Lampman), which reignited his inappropriate incestuous desire for her and prompted him to reunite with his siblings, attempt to avert the apocalypse (again), and return to their original time.

Number 2: Diego Hargreeves got institutionalised and a girlfriend

The last time Gary Stam took gymnasts from Victory Gymnastics Academy to the National Gymnastics Affiliation championships, they arrived away with an unique national title.

That was 2018, when Emily Moore, who would go on to win a higher faculty point out all-all-around title for Columbus North, won the bars and finished 3rd in the all-all over in Level 9. The 2020 nationals was canceled mainly because of COVID, and Victory opted not to go in 2019 or previous year.

This 7 days, 7 gymnasts from Victory are headed to Orlando, Florida, for the countrywide levels of competition which begins Wednesday and carries on by Saturday.

“We’re really excited to go and get nationals,” claimed Advhika Dhanya, a seventh-grader at Northside Middle Faculty. “I want to get on podium and strike all of our routines and get all 9s or increased.”

Dhanya completed second in the all-all-around competitors at the regional and will be competing in Degree 8 on Saturday.

Chelsea Jones, a senior at Elwood, is the only one of the 7 gymnasts who has been to nationals. She concluded eighth on the floor last calendar year while competing for Wright’s Gymnastics in Noblesville and aided the Area 5 workforce tie for very first in the Amount 9 crew standings.

Jones, who makes the hour-and-a-fifty percent vacation to Columbus five times a 7 days to practice, is heading to acquire a gap 12 months and be a gymnastics choose, then potentially go into acro and tumbling in faculty. She gained the Level 9 all-all-around in the regional and will compete at nationals on Saturday.

Victory also will have two gymnasts competing in the Xcel Sliver division on Wednesday. Meghan

Kaitlin Phenix couldn’t help but think back to last season.

In the second round of the Class 4A-5A playoffs at UMS-Wright, Montgomery Academy girls soccer’s leading scorer tore her right ACL. On Tuesday, Phenix took the field in the second round once again.

But she wasn’t worried about what would happen if history repeated itself.

“We prepared ourselves pretty well,” Phenix said. “I know my teammates. … If anything were to go down, they’d have my back.”

Everything went accordingly this time. Phenix scored a goal and assisted on another in a 3-0 win over St. Michael Catholic, sending the four-time defending state champion Eagles (15-2-1) through to the state quarterfinals, where they’ll take on St. James this weekend (date and time TBD).

When Phenix injured her knee, her first thought, right away, was: “I got to get back.”

After a 10-month recovery, she’s done just that. With 12 goals and 12 assists, the senior is second on the team in total points.

“She’s been a very good team player, linking up players, doing everything I ask of her,” Montgomery Academy coach Tate Dean said. “… She’s come up in big moments, scored goals, gotten assists and led the team.”

Phenix didn’t play club soccer during the fall, and, according to Dean, started slow this season as a result. She took her time getting back to peak fitness and wore a knee brace until recently.

But that struggle helped Phenix round out her game. After scoring 28 goals in 18 games last season, she’s adjusted toward being a facilitator from the forward position. On the Eagles’ first goal Tuesday, she held up the ball with her back to the defense before playing a through ball to Hayes Jenkins.

Montgomery Academy’s Kaitlin Phenix (13) scores a goal during the second round of the AHSAA soccer playoffs at Montgomery Academy in Montgomery, Ala., on Tuesday, May 3, 2022. Montgomery Academy defeated St. Michael 3-0.

If Phenix was disappointed to not be playing as Montgomery Academy finished off its eighth title in 10 seasons, she hardly let it show. She pushed her surgery back so she could travel with the Eagles to Huntsville for the Final Four, cheering them on as they defeated St. John Paul II, 6-1, in the championship game.

“It felt like I was out there with them,” Phenix said. “Every goal they scored felt like I’d scored myself. Just being with my team made me feel like I wasn’t injured.”

In rating her own performance this season, Phenix credited her teammates. Throughout her recovery, they constantly checked on her progress and gave her encouragement. Players like Jenkins (13 goals), Sophia Cho (17 goals, 18 assists) and Virginia Meacham (10 goals, 11 assists) have made it so Phenix hasn’t had to pressure herself to be at 100%.

Anayeli Guzman is tagged out at second base as ECS lost to The First Academy 3-0 in a Class 2A state semifinal in Clermont on Tuesday, May 24.

CLERMONT — MacKenzie Thompson stole a bunt single to start Evangelical Christian’s night at the plate, but The First Academy senior Hannah Harper stole the show with a dominant outing in the circle in Tuesday’s FHSAA Class 2A State Semifinal.

Harper, a West Florida signee, allowed just two hits and struck out 13 Sentinels as the Royals shutout ECS, 3-0, at Legends Way Ballfields.

“She did a super job,” said ECS head coach Johnny Manetta. “Hats off to her.”

Coming in, Manetta thought Harper could give his lefty-heavy lineup trouble. The memory of a two-hit shutout from Sickles left-hander Robyn Herron at the Longshore Memorial Tournament in Naples last month didn’t help.

“She gave us fits and we lost to them 1-0,” he said. “I had an idea that we may struggle. We’ve struggled all year against lefties. It’s something we can improve on next year. I love having all the left-handed bats in the lineup, but sometimes you just run into the wrong opponent.”

ECS sophomore Zoe Yzaguirre dueled with Harper for two scoreless frames. In The First Academy’s third, the Royals got a one-out double from Harper, who advanced to third on Morgan Duling’s base hit. Four pitches later, Camille Mackendon hit a triple just inches inside the third-base bag that rolled into left, scoring Harper and Duling. Molly Sheridan, the Royals’ cleanup batter, bunted into a suicide squeeze that brought Mackendon in.

The First Academy’s three spot in the third was all the run support Harper needed.

“Just one bad inning,” Manetta said. “Couple pitches that maybe weren’t where they were supposed to [be]. That’s just the way the cookie crumbles sometimes.”

Yzaguirre bounced back with a 1-2-3 fourth, then she worked around a leadoff single in the fifth. The right-hander retired 12 of the final 14 batters she saw to give the Sentinels offense a chance to come back.

“She’s another underclassman. Just a sophomore. We’re going to bring her back for two more years and she’s just going to get better and better,” said Manetta, who doubles as Yzaguirre’s travel ball coach. “Her velocity has gone up 2-3 mph every year, we expect another jump this summer. She’s just a warrior out there.”

Yzaguirre finished with 11 strikeouts, her third consecutive game in double figures. Even after allowing three earned runs in the state semifinal, the sophomore posted a career-low ERA at 1.06 to lead ECS. At the plate, Thompson added a second bunt single in the sixth to finish her sophomore campaign with a career-high 49

SEWICKLEY — At this point in the 2022 season in WPIAL baseball, it’s very rare that a team has one player hitting over .600 at the plate, let alone two. Yet that’s exactly what the red-hot Sewickley Academy Panthers’ baseball team has at its disposal this spring with junior Adin Zorn and sophomore Jordan Smith.

Zorn, a Penn State commit, is hitting .676 — up from .571 a year ago — along with a .733 on-base percentage and a 1.162 slugging percentage on the year, increasing his numbers across the board after a dominant sophomore season that put the Panthers’ star on the WPIAL map. Not to be outdone, Smith is enjoying a massive breakout sophomore season for the Panthers, hitting .600 on the year with a .689 on-base percentage and a .628 slugging percentage.

The two standouts — along with junior Nicholas Straka (.412 batting average, 14 runs batted in) – have the Panthers eyeing a WPIAL Class 1A championship under coaches Andrew Petruska and Anthony Garofalo.

‘Not trying to do too much’

As a Penn State commit ahead of his junior season, all eyes have been on Zorn the last two years. Even with all the pressure on him externally, Zorn — to his credit – has stayed within himself as a hitter, leading to a career year through 11 games for the Panthers.

Fresh off of a dominant sophomore season for the black and red, Zorn has one-upped his game with the bat in his hands, staying within himself with a sound approach without trying to do too much, all while seeing a majority of off-speed and breaking ball pitches as teams have tried to stay away from feeding one of the top hitters in the WPIAL fastballs.

Sewickley Academy's Adin Zorn bats during the second inning against St. Joseph Thursday evening at Nichols Field in Sewickley, PA.

For young hitters, staying patient and learning to hit off-speed and breaking ball pitches at a high clip can be rather difficult, leading to some bad habits in the box. Zorn has used the change in philosophy from opposing pitchers to make himself that much more of a complete hitter in the box, which will only benefit him at the next level.

“It’s just my approach, just going up there not trying to do too much,” Zorn said. “Staying within myself, hitting whatever the pitcher gives me, whether that be off-speed, fastballs, you know, just really staying within my own approach, reading off of what the pitcher does, and attacking.

“It’s teaching me how to hit in different situations, different counts,” Zorn added. “It’s definitely preparing me for the next level where I may see that stuff earlier in counts. I think seeing this now is making me a better hitter in general, and really rounding me out as a hitter. I definitely feel like I have the fastball down, but just seeing more and more off-speed, I’ve just become a better hitter in general.”

Even while seeing a healthy dose of changeups, curveballs and sliders throughout his junior season, Zorn has been able to still hit for power,

Heritage Jr High flag football champs

A Maricopa school has brought home a state championship on the gridiron.

Heritage Academy recently won the Canyon Athletic Association middle school Division 2 flag football title, defeating Heritage Mesa, 22-20, in overtime to complete a 13-1 season.

“This is a big thing for Heritage,” said head coach Jason Schalow. “It’s their first championship of any kind in football.”

When the season started, Schalow and his assistant coach, Kevin Doscher, did not have visions of a state championship. In fact, the volunteer coaches wondered if they could be competitive.

The Heroes’ season began in December with just three players, including Doscher’s son Brennan.

“We were down and out at that point,” Schalow said. “We were seriously worried we wouldn’t have enough players to play the season. We didn’t have a final roster until after winter break.”

Schalow and Doscher took a creative approach to recruiting players. Since this was the first year of tackle football at Heritage, several players switched to the flag team after a two-week clinic on tackle football. They also dipped into another sport to generate recruits – baseball.

“We sold the baseball coach on the benefits of playing football,” Doscher said. “We told him it would be good for them to do something different and avoid getting burned out on baseball. So, in the end we got three of our best kids from the baseball team.”

Flag football for 6th, 7th and 8th graders is played with six players and no linemen, so speed and quickness are far more advantageous than size. The Heritage coaches, who knew what they were looking for after coaching a 10-12 age group for several years, evaluated their roster and brought in players who fit that mold. They also recruited from the flag football class offered at Heritage. The team included one girl, backup center Hailey Mattson.

“We had to evaluate their speed because it’s all about speed and quickness,” said Schalow. “We started with simple drills because a lot of the kids hadn’t played football before. We ran the (passing) route tree and did basic drills like backpedal, pass rush, agility and speed drills.”

From the group that came out for the team, the coaches cut the roster to 14, the size determined by the capacity of the school’s travel van.

Going into the first game, the coaches were not sure exactly what they had. They found out quickly, as the Heroes demolished Imagine Prep from Coolidge, 47-0.

“I jumped for joy after winning that first game,” Schalow said.

“We had an idea after the first game that it would be a good season,” Doscher added.

They were right. The Heroes stormed through the regular season with 10 wins and just one loss, outscoring their opponents by a margin of 457-125 for the regular season. The only loss came against

Seth Anderson knew there was something special about the Columbia Academy softball program when he was named the head coach in 2018.

His wife Emily had been the coach of the Lady Bulldogs the three prior seasons and Seth, a Columbia Academy alum, knew it wouldn’t take much to elevate the program to the next level.

In his first year, the Lady Bulldogs won 14 games. The next year they brought home the program’s first-ever gold ball. COVID-19 took away a repeat bid, but the Lady Bulldogs rebounded last season by winning more than 40 games and another state title.

Now with another talented group, Anderson and the Lady Bulldogs are looking for their third consecutive straight title.

“I think the biggest thing is that we have a lot of really talented players who have bought in to what we’ve been trying to build,” Anderson said. “It’s hard work, and these girls work in the weight room and in the cages as soon as we get back to school up until the start of the season. They’ve bought in, and they’re just extremely talented players.

“Southern Middle Tennessee is a hotbed for softball. Where we’re at, softball is the dominant sport, and that really helps us.”

While there was plenty of young talent already on the roster that would continue to grow and get better after that first state title run, a few new additions helped take the Lady Bulldogs get even better.

Senior Averi Slaughter came to Columbia Academy after her freshman season at Santa Fe. Slaughter knew several of the girls on the team already from travel ball and wanted to play with them.

“The girls really talked me into coming here after my freshman year, and I’m really glad that they did,” Slaughter said. “I knew a bunch of the girls already, and when we played them in the state tournament my freshman year, I knew it was going to be a challenge.”

A COVID-shortened season only allowed Slaughter to play four games with the Lady Bulldogs in 2020, but she made the most out of her first full-season last year going 24-0.

A tougher schedule this season has seen Slaughter lose a couple of games, but she’s found success more often than not with a 14-4 record a few no-hitters through the first month of the season.

Myleah Hardy also added a new dimension to an already-loaded roster: power.

The Dickson County transfer joined the Lady Bulldogs last season and immediately made an impact, setting a new school record with 20 home runs.

Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, and Justin H. Min are all confirmed to reprise their roles as the Hargreeves siblings, while Ritu Arya will return as Lila. Colm Feore is back as Reginald Hargreeves, too.

The Umbrella Academy season 2 ending also introduced the “Sparrow Academy”, a new group of superheroes formed by a still-alive Reginald in an alternative universe in which our heroes now live. Justin H. Min will play an alternate-universe version of his character Ben, alongside a host of new faces. 

Justin Cornwell will play Marcus, the leader of the Sparrows who keeps the family in check, while Britne Oldford is Fei, a lonely misanthrope who’s usually the smartest person in the room.

Christopher is loyal, trustworthy, and can turn a room freezing cold and induce paralyzing fear – and, crucially, a large, telekinetic cube. While this may create more questions than it answers, at least we know why there was a giant cube at the end of season 2 now. 

Character posters of the Sparrows have also been unveiled, and you can check them out below. 

Euphoria star Javon Walton also revealed to Complex (opens in new tab) that he has a part in The Umbrella Academy season 3, but gave away no further details.
