Synopsis for "The Day the Eiffel Tower Went Berserk"

At 9:38 p.m., the same year "Tusslin Tom Gurney defeated the space squid from Rigel X-9, after he had landed an atomic flying elbow, forty-three special children were born to women who had shown no prior signs of pregnancy and the ones who survived were either abandoned or put up for adoption. Sir Reginald Hargreeves found and adopted seven of the forty-three babies and wiped their identities and hid them from the world. Hargreeves and the seven children would disappear from the public until the Eiffel Tower had gone insane ten years later. Five of the six children attempted to stop the Eiffel Tower, while Number Seven stayed in a plane with her father, who claimed that there was "nothing special" about her. The other six defeated the Eiffel Tower and learned that a zombie-robot Gustave Eiffel had been operating it. Number Two threw a knife at Eiffel's head, causing him to bump into a button that set off a launch sequence in the tower. Afterwards, the six children received the key to the city and each a scoop of ice cream. Twenty years later, Number One, now also known as Spaceboy, was on a mission on the Moon, before before being summoned by Dr. Pogo to the Umbrella Academy. He returned to the academy to learn that Sir Reginald Hargreeves was dead.
