Named number six by his father, who adopted him, Sir Reginald Hargreeves (Colm Feore), Ben’s death remains a mystery throughout the Netflix and Gerard Way comics. However, an Umbrella Academy fan suggested who might have killed Ben.

Umbrella Academy viewers saw Ben on-screen as a vision that Brother Klaus made available to interact with the dead.

Number Six has also appeared as his young self in flashbacks as Young Ben (Ethan Hwang).

Ben had passed away before the start of The Umbrella Academy series, although his exact cause of death was not revealed in either the comics or on the Netflix show.

A TUA fan has suggested that Ben’s death may have been due to suicide due to raising Reginald Hargreeves.

On the Reddit online forum, the Umbrella Academy fan explained how Ben could have committed suicide.

The fan theory begins: “Ben suffered the worst abuse from one of the UA kids. They forced him to murder some people with the powers he got.

“Whether you believe in the death penalty or not, I think we should all agree that a 12-year-old should not be the one to kill bad guys, especially in such bloody and brutal ways.

“His victims were publicly executed. You have been torn apart limb by limb. The blood painted the walls of the buildings where they were killed. Ben was forced to appear on national television covered in the blood of the people he had killed. They called him “The Horror,” and he became a monster and a bogeyman.

“Reginald was the judge, and the jury and a boy were his executioners.
