How Lila’s Powers Work In The Umbrella Academy
How do Lila Pitts' powers work in The Umbrella Academy and what rules does her gift abide by? Ritu Arya's Lila Pitts debuted in the second season of The Umbrella Academy.
Lila, one of the 43 super children created by Sir Reginald Hargreeves, was lucky enough to avoid adoption.
Less luckily, Number Five killed his parents at the behest of Handler while working for the Commission.
The young man was adopted by the goldfish swallower Handler herself, before becoming a formidable agent.
Lila's superpower is essentially the mimicry of power. Only in season 3 of The Umbrella Academy, she copies Fei's power to steal a Commission briefcase from the Hargreeves mansion.
Viktor's sonic explosions to break down a door, Five's time travel to power a broken briefcase, and Diego's knife throwing to fight a Guardian into Oblivion.
Lila's The Umbrella Academy superpower has only two drawbacks, but only one could seriously be considered an Achilles heel.
While all the other siblings can always rely on their gifts, Lila needs another sibling to draw leeches from, the only significant downside to her camouflage.
