The Umbrella Academy Season 2: 10 Shocking Comic Moments That Must Happen

10. Hotel Oblivion Appears - The Umbrella Academy: Hotel Oblivion

Dark Horse

Though the current Netflix series has taken considerable portions of its plot from the pages of the third volume of the Umbrella Academy series, named Hotel Oblivion, it leaves out one crucial detail from this section of the plot; namely, that of the actual Hotel Oblivion itself.

Because the hotel is a hugely important feature of the world of the Umbrella Academy, as it exists in an alternate universe where the team's mentor and surrogate father, Sir Reginald Hargreeves, traps the villains that his superhero proteges have caught - and where he leaves them for eternity.

It's a huge reminder in terms of both how absolutely remorseless Hargreeves is, and how unnervingly powerful he is, as the man has somehow managed to turn a universe into his own personal prison.
