About Marty Mcfly from Back to the Future

As the main protagonist in the Back to the Future movies, Marty Mcfly is an all-around legend in today’s movie and film culture. Michael J. Fox plays this adventurous teen, who is the second person to ever time travel, in this hit film made back in 1985. Mcfly meets the curious Doc Brown who has devised a time machine from an old DeLorean car, and is sent back to 1955 by accident.

Throughout the different movies in this series, Marty is constantly time traveling to different years, past and future, as well as getting into plenty of mischief. He is a pretty hot-headed character and takes no insults from anyone. Many great Back to the Future scenes have been procured after someone utters, "coward", to Mcfly, and him being who he is, cannot resist the urge to pummel the speaker.
