Umbrella Academy – Umbrella Academy, Inc. – MK Stangeland Jr.


(5 Panels)

Panel 1: REGINALD HARGREEVES is in a meeting room with the members of the UMBRELLA ACADEMY.

REGINALD: Children, I have an important announcement for you today.

Panel 2: View of the children of the UMBRELLA ACADEMY with their pre-announcement reactions. Generally, they’re not favorable ones.

REGINALD: I have brought a new partner onboard to assist here at the Umbrella Academy.

Panel 3: Back to REGINALD, who is oblivious to how the children are reacting.

REGINALD (1): He is a researcher I believe I can hold in the highest regard, and with his background in biology, I believe he will be able to help us gain a greater understanding of your powers.

REGINALD (2): If I may introduce…

Panel 4: View of a doorway, where ALBERT WESKER is standing. The lighting and panel angle should make him look particularly malevolent.

REGINALD: (Off-Panel) Mr. ALBERT WESKER.

WESKER: Hmm…Hell-o, child-ren.

Panel 5: LUTHER HARGREEVES leans aside and whispers to one of the children next to him.

LUTHER: I think he might be evil.

(Funny story - while I'd HEARD of Umbrella Academy before it became the pick for this week, that was about all I knew of it, so before having to actually read up on it, every time I heard the name my mind instinctively connected it to the Resident Evil series. So, yeah, that's pretty much the origin of this particular script.)
