The Umbrella Academy fans want Five named after My Chemical Romance’s Frank Iero (Picture: FilmMagic / WireImage)Gerard Way’s Umbrella Academy has taken the world by storm after being released on Netflix just over a week ago.
And it seems the team behind the series are keen to have their fans involved as they recently asked their Twitter followers to name the character Five.
Despite being one of the lead roles, Five who is one of the seven Hargreeves siblings is currently nameless.
Even in the comic books that the TV series is based on, the character played by 15-year-old Aidan Gallagher, is yet to be given a name.
But it looks as though the people have spoken, and have revealed they want the much loved youngster to be called after My Chemical Romance’s Frank Iero.
Replying to The Umbrella Academy’s tweet: ‘ok do it. give Five a (new) name. Go!’ fans came to the general consensus that Five should be named Frank.
And it appears the guitarist agrees, as he has since responded to the fandom revealing he’d be honoured.
In a savvy reply, the 37-year-old mixed pleasure and business as he wrote: ‘I would be honored! …I would also require 15% (sic)’
Followers teased the star over his request: ‘with that 15% you could do a UK tour,’ while others demanded The Umbrella Academy: ‘GIVE THIS MAN HIS 15%.’
Frank’s former bandmate and writer of the show Gerard Way recently revealed his favourite line from the entire series was from Five.
He said he would be honoured if it happened (Picture: WireImage)Writing on Twitter, the 41-year-old told his fans: ‘“What part of ‘the future’ do you not understand?” Is my favorite line in the series.’
He later added: ‘I laugh every time I hear @aidanrgallagher say it.’
Way has spoken out about why he decided to take a career change after My Chemical Romance to write the popular show.

He told Newsweek: ‘Yeah, it’s a big change. I was overloaded from years of on-camera interviews and being on stage and music videos. I kind of got tired of myself. There was just too much me happening, you know?
‘So I withdrew a good deal. I also realised I had a lot to learn, I had a lot of listening to do.’
The Umbrella Academy is available to stream on Netflix.
