• Personally, I always theorized he was some asshole in High School that got washed up after, and when the outbreak happened he took his wife and survived with his biker friends. Eventually his wife was killed at the hands of another group, so Negan killed them with the bat wrapped in barb wire, now naming it after his dead wife: Lucille. Maybe this is when he got the scar? idk. Anyways, after he established the Sanctuary and it's all been downhill from there.

      He could have possibly been a good guy. Maybe before the apocalypse he was a nice normal guy. Had a wife and child possibly. Then after the world ended I agree with you maybe his wife was rapped and murdered that is why maybe he is against rape. I would also say the same as you he probably named his baseball bat after his wife maybe? I would say he maybe had a child cause he thinks of Carl as his friend. Maybe if he had a child Carl maybe reminds him of his child he once had possibly.

    • Maybe he was Davidson. The scar was made by Douglas when he attempted to kill him to protect Alexandria. The behaviour he tells Rick of is consistent with Negan's. Although I guess someone from there would have recognized him, unless all of those who lived there when he was a part of it are dead already?

    • I agree the point about the child, great point. And someone from Alexandria would've recognized if Davidson came back as Negan. I don't think anything is ever going to happen with Davidson. Their last chance to do something was to make him the leader of the Whisperers, so I don't think he'll be coming back. Unless Negan comes across him if he escapes the walls, but I don't think it would work.

    • I saw that same flaw in my idea, and actually mentioned it.

      But do we know if any of his contemporaries from Alexandria are alive? AFAIR, there ~4-5 people alive from what Alexandria was when the group found it, do we know if all of them came before Davidson was allegedly killed by Douglas?

      I'm asking because I haven't found anything that lead me to believe either possibility.

      I seem to recall of Douglas' family died before we actually see Negan, but I'm not really sure, but they are the only ones I'm 100% got to know Davidson.

    • the dead of the wife is a good theory... I don´t know, I personally don´t think he is someone like the Governor, a poor guy that turned out to be a leader and badass and monster... Maybe your theory is right, but I don´t think he was a thug or something like that, he might have been bully, but after school I think he had normal life... maybe he was a bit violent... and than his wife died

      Kirkman confirmed two things about Davidson at Comic-Con once. (not sure which year)

      A) We are NEVER going to see Davidson.

      Why?

      B) He is super dead.

      That is why he couldnt ever have been Negan.

    • I do like this idea for Negan's backstory. Me personally, I would love to see a whole story arc based on Negan's past and how he rose to power. This idea you have here would be a great idea.

    • He was previously a car sales man, so Kirkman said. I do think he was a good guy, with a wife and kid. I think  he and his family could have took refuge in the Sancuary, under previous owners. But those owners were child abusers and rapists (two things Negan hates), and done both those things to his wife and son; leading him to kill rhe leaders and become leader himself.

    • I'm pretty sure Negan wasn't a bad guy. Just exactly like Rick was. The fact is Negan is the exact opposite of Rick. He did bad things beacause he have to. He tried to manage his community, he makes choices... Like Rick. When he crushed Glenn's brains out, and I hate to say it cause I love Glenn so much, he was right. Sadistic way, but right. He just avange his men's death. Rick do the same things in the past. He's the dark side of Rick. So that's why I think he wasn't bad - but don't saying he was good. 

      And I don't think Lucille was his wife's name. Negan is maybe a little weird but not a crazy man.

      After what happened in this latest issue and the things Negan said to Alpha you two could be right. Negan was a normal man once and then shit happened to him like it did everyone else and it changed him.

    • I've heard about Negan and figured he was The Governor 2.0, but after reading his personality, I kind of get him. I mean, yeah he's meant to be the new antagonist in the TV Series and Comics, but it does say that he prevents rape or beatings of defenceless people. He isn't like the other TWD villains, he's both a good and a bad man.

      To me, Negan signifies that there is no good and bad. He has his ways of doing things, like Rick does. People call Negan "evil" because he killed Glenn, but that was his way of getting equal for Rick's group killing a bunch of Saviors.

      I wonder if Rick stumbled back upon Lilly Caul, would he kill her, or spare her?

      That depends on if he knows what she did in the past, you know killing Carly or Doug. Of all the Unknown characters in TWDG, why you choose Lilly? What about Molly? Or the 400 Days survivors, or Bonnie and Mike.

      'Was talking 'bout comic Lilly. But game Lilly works too.

      Well, for a start, game Lilly killed an innocent person (and would probably admit to it), and Negan killed an innocent person of Rick's group.

      More like an eye for a dozen eyes. Rick's group were left off lightly (not that I'm complaining).

    • Maybe because Negan didn't want to start a war between the Saviors and Rick's Group, but we all know that's gonna happen! Why? Because this is the fucking Walking Dead.

      That does seem highly possible, if it weren't for these decent morals that he shows in the comics that he kept in his past life, he probably would have let women get raped and kill Carl way early in the comics!

    • Negan's goals are too rebuild a stable society, you can't really have a 'stable society' with rapings and beatings can you? If Rick's Group didn't kill Negan's people whilst they were looking for supplies, would Negan still have hunted them all down?

      Also, I've got to type Jeffrey Dean Morgan is a terrific villain, but where the fuck did he get hair gel? "Oh, I got a mission to rebuild society, I will kill anyone who tries to stop me, but good God, if I do not have any hair gel, I would not look as badass as I do, especially with Lucille."
