Added DiffLines:

** In the comics it’s established that every Commission agents underwent extensive surgical enhancements and augmentations as to make their bodies more resilient and enhance their fighting skills.


** In the first episode, Ben is only shown in a hoodie, and doesn’t talk. It’s possible Klaus could only really communicate with Ben sober, so that could be a major factor.

** Klaus says he once dated a man because he was tired of finding a new place to sleep, so he probably just liked staying in one place for a while.


** Not only does he throw grown men around, he throws them an absurd distance. The serum has nothing to do with Luther's strength, and just changed his looks.

* Why did Klaus go to rehabs in that flashback and in the beginning of the series? He clearly never had any intention of getting clean, ever, and yet he goes to rehabs enough that he has become very accustomed with the rehab workers.

** Luther absolutely had super strength before his injection. In the first episode he is shown throwing fully grown men effortlessly at thirteen. And with all Vanya’s angst about being the ordinary one, of course he had actual powers as a child. Especially to be Number One.

Added DiffLines:

** Presumably he somehow "cheated" rehab enough to never be entirely sober.


* Why was Luther allowed to be a member of the Umbrella Academy if he had no powers prior to receiving his injection (which took place after all other members had quit/moved on)? While Hargreeves' treatment of Vanya's supposed powerlessness is shown to be due to other circumstances, it's explicitly stated in an Episode 9 flashback with Vanya speaking to her siblings that only kids with powers were allowed to go on missions. Did he have super strength before the injection and it just enhanced it?

** [[spoiler: He's an alien in the Netflix series too, the Season 1 finale shows him in a flashback talking to a female member of his species on a planet with spacecraft taking off across an alien landscape. Possibly HumanAliens, since they look exactly the same on their own world as they do on earth.]]



** It's weird. Two of the messages Hazel & Cha Cha got would have stopped the Apocalyps. If they had protected Harold like they were told, those drunks he'd hired to attack him would have been killed a lot sooner, and Vanya's powers wouldn't have triggered. And if they'd protected Vanya like they had been ordered, the Umbrella academy wouldn't have been able to attack her, and Allison would probably have calmed her down.

* Klaus is shown in rehab twice. And yes, he obviously relapses, he still. But in the show, he’s sober a mere few days, and suddenly he gets all these new powers. How come he never activated these powers in rehab? I’m pretty sure you have to stay more than a few days.

** By the end of the series, it's pretty clear that Hazel and Cha Cha are MadeOfIron at the very least, as Cha Cha is able to walk off being launched from a speeding car and crashing into the pavement face-first twenty or thirty feet away, something which ''should'' kill most people, or at least leave them in no shape to immediately walk off and get into a round of GoodOldFisticuffs with a vigilante superhero.



*** Thats still very misleading and doesn’t fit the theme of the moment, which is cheating to get ahead in life, not a dangerous mission.

** It's pretty clear by the end of the season that Hazel and Cha-Cha are *not* normal humans. They recover from numerous life-threatening injuries in hours or even minutes, so it's very possible that their strength is enhanced as well.

At one point Cha-Cha is ejected from a speeding car and hits the pavement face first. [[MadeOfIron She walks it off]], with [[{{Determinator}} more than enough gas left in her tank for a hand-to-hand fight with Diego.]]

Added DiffLines:

** She wouldn't even have to wait. If she'd already hired a realtor, they could sell the business for her while she was on vacation.


* During The “Don’t Stop Me Now” fight in the second episode, Five takes a garden knife and slashes Cha Cha. There’s a blood splatter and she falls. And yet, in the next cut she’s in, she’s totally fine! It had dark lightning so maybe I’m confused but how did she get back up so quick, (on first viewing, I thought it was a neck slice) or at least, what was that splatter?

* While Allison was thinking about all the way she cheated in life using her rumors, the first thing you hear is her child self forcing her way onto a soccer team. Which raises the question, when would she have the opportunity to even just be on a soccer team? Did Dad send them to school? Was Luther a mathlete? Was Klaus Queen Bee? I feel as though that wouldn’t exactly fit what their father tried to do for their childhood. And even if that was the case, I doubt Reginald would let them have extracurriculars. That’s too far.
** A mission maybe?

Added DiffLines:

** That's how they knew Hazel and Cha-Cha's briefcase had jumped to the '60s.


** Klaus and Diego might have had a similar idea: sincr Luther is unyielding in his position and they cannot force him to move, they might have intended to feign giving up and come back later.
