The Umbrella Academy Series by Gerard Way
Seven of these surprise tots are purchased by the mysterious Sir Reginald Hargreeves, who turns them into the famous crime-fighting team known as the Umbrella Academy. A major theme of the Netflix series deals with Reginald's detached method of parenting - an upbringing that led to some deep-seated mental issues for the adopted children. As part of his hands-off approach to being a father, Reginald would refer to his children by number only, with their regular names eventually given after the creation of a robot to handle the motherly duties of the house. Related: No MCU? The Umbrella Academy makes no real reference to these numbers having any meaning and, for the most part, they appear to be have been assigned at random. But very little is random about Sir Reginald Hargreeves, who meticulously kept detailed notes on all of his children and their abilities. Additionally, the children were all born at the same time, so the numbers can't denote age, which might usually be the obvious ordering method.
