His best friend is scientist Emmett Brown, who Marty (and Jennifer) calls "Doc."

Marty is an easygoing adolescent most of the time. He is not the best student academically, but his grades are good, although he does have a tendency to be late for school.

Although often accident prone, when faced with danger, Marty is always brave and can be very resourceful and clever. His only major character flaw is his persistent desire to show others that he isn't a coward, which causes him to take unnecessary risks. He can't abide to being called 'chicken', a trait he shares with James Dean's character Jim Stark from Rebel Without a Cause (coincidentally made in 1955). However, by the end of Back to the Future Part III, Marty has realized he doesn't need to constantly prove his bravery and avoids one of the greatest tragedies in his life, a collision with a Rolls-Royce limo.

Pre-Back to the Future

Little is known about Marty's life prior to the first Back to the Future film, except for the fact that he set the living room rug on fire when he was 8. How exactly Marty and Doc met has never been explained, although a draft script for the first film states that a couple of years ago Doc turned up at Marty's garage one day and offered him $50 a week, plus free beer and use of his record collection, to clean his garage. This explanation is not accepted by most fans, however, as it contradicts the characterizations of Marty and Doc seen in the finished film. Writers Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale say they once considered expanding on their relationship, but decided against it, reasoning that children and adolescents are often attracted to eccentric or mysterious neighbors.

Back to the Future

Main article: Back to the Future

By the time of the first film, it is 1985. Marty is 17 years old. On the early morning of October 26, 1985, at the request of Doc, Marty meets him at the Twin Pines Mall parking lot where Doc demonstrates his new invention; a time machine built from a DeLorean. The demonstration is interrupted by the arrival of a group of angry Libyan terrorists. The Libyans had provided Doc with the plutonium to build a nuclear weapon for them, but Doc instead used it to provide the DeLorean with the 1.21 gigawatts of electricity needed for time travel. This results in Doc being shot before the experiment can be finished. This article is about the first film in the Back to the Future trilogy. ...

Marty attempts to escape from the Libyans in the DeLorean, only to find himself transported back to November 5, 1955 after accidentally activating the time circuits, where he interferes with the first meeting between his future parents. He uses the alias "Calvin Klein" after his teenage future mother Lorraine sees the name printed on his underwear and assumes it is Marty's name. Marty later meets up with the 1955 version of Doc and enlists his help. Marty must try to get his parents (Lorraine and George) to fall in love, so that Marty is born and lives. This is complicated by Lorraine's own concern for Marty's welfare, mistranslated into infatuation, and George's shyness. is the 309th day of the year (310th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

On the night of November 12, 1955, Marty takes Lorraine to the 'Enchantment Under The Sea' dance (or "a rhythmic ceremonial ritual," as Doc amusingly titles it). He and his father have agreed to a plan that will allow George to win Lorraine's heart by "saving" her from Marty's staged aggressive behavior. Unfortunately, Marty has made an enemy of high school bully Biff Tannen, and Biff shows up at the dance looking for revenge. When George comes to rescue Lorraine, he finds that instead of having to pretend to save her from Marty, he must save her from Biff. George punches Biff, standing up to a bully for the first time in his life. As a result, George and Lorraine fall in love. is the 316th day of the year (317th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Wilson. ...


His future existence assured, Marty joins the dance band onstage and plays Johnny B. Goode, deterorating into 1980s stageplay such as kicking the speaker in the form of The Who, laying on the ground kicking his legs playing his guitar in context of Angus Young of AC/DC, plus including his own Jimi Hendrix/Eddie Van Halen-like guitar solo, which in 1955 leaves the audience speechless. Given the year he plays the song, it is mistaken for his own work, although the guitarist of the onstage band, named "Marvin Berry", phones his cousin, Chuck Berry (the real-life artist who released Johnny B. Goode in 1958), who at the time is said to be looking for a "new sound". Marvin holds the phone out for Chuck to hear his future hit being performed. Arriving back in 1985, Marty discovers that his family's lives have turned out very differently because George learned to assert himself by standing up to Biff. They are more confident and richer.

Back to the Future II

Marty, aged 47, in 2015

In the second film, Marty and Doc head to 2015 to save Marty's future son Marty, Jr., from going to prison. Marty pretends to be Marty, Jr. in order to stand up to Griff Tannen, grandson of Biff. In this film we are introduced to Marty's strong aversion to being called a "chicken" (coward) and his reckless insistence on being thought otherwise. Marty succeeds in preventing his son from going to prison, and acquires a Hoverboard, which is used several times later. File links The following pages link to this file: Marty McFly ...

It is revealed that in on the day after he arrived from 1955, Marty was involved in a car accident after auto racing a classmate, Douglas J Needles, on a "chicken" dare. Marty broke his hand and was sued by the driver of the Rolls-Royce with whom he collided. He had to give up a career in music and spent many years feeling sorry for himself. He married Jennifer Parker in the 1990s in the "Chapel O' Love", to which his parents were the only witnesses. The couple had 2 kids - daughter Marlene, and son, Marty Jr (born 1998). By 2015, Marty and Jennifer are living in Hilldale, a planned community established in 1985 which had deteriorated over the last 30 years in similar fashion as Lyon Estates had between 1955 and 1985. They are having marriage difficulties, and Marty is stuck in a sterile job at Cosco Enterprises, with Needles as his supervisor.

The 1985 version of Marty, visiting 2015, does not discover any of this, whereas the 1985 Jennifer does. The future version of Marty falls victim to another "chicken" dare from Needles, who convinces Marty to go along with an illegal in-company deal. However, the supervisor above Needles listens in on the pair and fires Marty for cooperating with Needles. The 1985 Jennifer does not witness all of this exchange, but does acquire a copy of a printout sheet with the words "YOU'RE FIRED!' on it, produced when the higher supervisor commanded every printing medium in the 2015 McFlys' home to print out the phrase.


Doc and Marty, having re-obtained Jennifer, return to 1985, only to find that an elderly Biff Tannen, in 2015, had stolen the time machine, and unknown to them gone back to 1955 with a sports almanac, which he had given to his younger self. As a result, Biff of 1955 learned the results of all future sports events for the rest of the century. Using this knowledge, Biff was able to bet on the winner every time, becoming a multi-millionaire. Hill Valley has become a corrupt, crime-ridden city ruled by Biff. Additionally, Marty that learns his father is dead, that Biff is now his stepfather, and that he "has been attending" a boarding school in Switzerland. Marty had apparently attended, and been thrown out of, other boarding schools in the past. An almanac (also spelled almanack, especially in Commonwealth English) is an annual publication containing tabular information in a particular field or fields often arranged according to the calendar. ... A boarding school is a usually fee-charging school where some or all pupils not only study, but also live during term time, with their fellow students and possibly teachers. ...


When Marty confronts Biff regarding the almanac, Biff reveals how he obtained it and admits to murdering Marty's father. He then attempts to kill Marty. Marty must now return to 1955 to steal back the almanac from Biff, so he and Doc can put history back on track, all while avoiding their younger selves from the first film. They eventually succeed; but a lightning bolt strikes the DeLorean in mid-air while Doc is inside, scrambling the time circuits and sending him to the year 1885. At that very moment, a letter from Doc in 1885, which has been in Western Union's possession for 70 years, arrives for Marty, explaining everything that has just transpired. With no one else on whom to rely, Marty rushes to find the 1955 Doc, who has just finished sending the Marty of the first movie back to 1985.

Back to the Future Part III

Marty McFly under the alias of Clint Eastwood

Marty finds 1955 Doc Brown celebrating his success in sending his counterpart back to 1985 the first time. He shows Doc the message his counterpart sent him, and they find the DeLorean buried in a mine. After the DeLorean is fixed, the two realize that Biff's ancestor murders Doc in 1885. Marty heads back to September 2, 1885, intending to find Doc and bring him home. Marty, now using the name "Clint Eastwood", finds Doc, only to discover that the time machine again needs repairing. When Doc starts romancing Clara Clayton, Marty tries to distract Doc from Clara so he can fix the time machine and they can go home.

Once Marty reaches town (Hill Valley in its infancy), he encounters Biff's great-grandfather Buford 'Mad Dog' Tannen. Marty makes an enemy of Buford. Later, Marty's great-great-grandfather Seamus McFly tells Marty the story of his brother, also named Martin, who was stabbed in Virginia City while trying to prove he was not a coward. Marty manages to overcome his insecurity and tells Buford that he does not care what anyone thinks about him. Buford, however, insists on a duel. Marty uses a Clint Eastwood trick from A Fistful of Dollars to defeat Buford in their showdown.

Marty manages to get back to the future, while Doc involuntarily stays behind while trying to rescue an imperilled Clara. Marty finds that everything is as it was at the end of the first film. Upon returning, the time machine is destroyed by an oncoming train, just as Marty leaps from the vehicle. He picks up Jennifer, and they go in his new truck to visit the site of the time machine's return. At an intersection, they meet Needles, who challenges Marty to a race. Jennifer realizes that this is the car accident that ruins Marty's life, and therefore urges him to decline. Marty appears to be ready to race Needles, but when the light turns green he shifts into reverse, speeding backwards as Needles takes off. Marty tells Jennifer that he had no intention of racing; Needles, now down the road, narrowly misses hitting a Rolls-Royce which speeds onto the main line by ignoring a STOP sign. The future changes to a supposedly better but unknown path for Marty and Jennifer. The movie ends with Marty and Jennifer returning to the scene of the DeLorean's wreckage, where Doc and Clara appear with their twin sons in a new time machine fashioned from a locomotive. Doc tells Marty and Jennifer that the future is unwritten and that they should make the best of it. A time machine is a device for traveling through time. ... Great Western Railway No. ...


Back to the Future: The Animated Series

The animated series reveals that Marty and Jennifer end up in Hill Valley College after graduating from Hill Valley high school. In the series, Marty is not as smart as he is in the films, and spends a lot of time visiting the Brown house where Doc, Clara and their sons now live. He accompanies the family on many of their time travel adventures.


The animated series reveals that Marty still has his "chicken" problem, even though he had apparently overcome it in Back to the Future Part III; for instance, Bifficus Antanneny taunts Marty into a chariot race by calling him the Latin word for "chicken".


One episode set in 2091 establishes that Marty's music becomes famous to Elvis-like proportions, as there are Marty impersonators mimicking his act on stage. However, a quote from his great-granddaughter Marta ("If only my great-grandfather was still alive to see that his music continues on...") suggests that the fame surrounding his music may not materialize until some point after his death. “Elvis” redirects here. ...

George McFly's role in the sequel is more talked about by other characters than his actual on screen time, and Jennifer's time on screen is quick and brief also (although she has one great scene that takes place in the future)so neither casting change is of any consequence.
Shortly thereafter, Doc and Marty return to 1985, only to find that not only is Hill Valley not what it used to be, their own lives are in pretty sad shape and far different than what they had been before.
