While perusing my daily sites, I came upon a post that linked to the article below.  I can’t figure out if this is recent or very old.  The photo with it was back in the Revenge era so that is what I am thinking.  Don’t know though.  Ok so pay close attention to what is in bold.  It SERIOUSLY made me laugh.

Gerard Way On TUA Series 2!

By Emmett Furey

Before Gerard Way became lead singer for My Chemical Romance, the musician was an aspiring comics artist. Last year, he finally got the opportunity to realize that dream by writing “Umbrella Academy,” published by Dark Horse and featuring artwork by Gabriel Ba and covers by “Fables'” James Jean. “The Umbrella Academy” series 1 told the story of a dysfunctional family of superheroes, brought together by Sir Reginald Hargreeves, aka The Monocle, a space alien posing as a wealthy entrepreneur. In an event that has yet to be explained, 43 extraordinary children were born to 43 unsuspecting mothers. Those who did not die in childbirth were abandoned or given up for adoption. The Monocle adopted seven of these superpowered children with the express purpose of training them to save the world, and called the team the Umbrella Academy. CBR News caught up with Way to talk about what’s in store for the characters in “Umbrella Academy” series 2, the possibility of a big-screen adaptation of the franchise, and Way’s upcoming panel discussion with Grant Morrison at this year’s Comic-Con International.
