Liam Neeson is a total bad-ass! He has played so many diverse roles that have provided us with a vast amount of entertainment. What if I told you that all of his roles were connected? Shout out to Traelon Randolph for inspiration. Also keep an eye out for Steve Johnson's post on the matter.
We begin this theory in the times of Ancient Greece. Liam Neeson's chronologically first role is Zeus, the Greek god of the skies. After many eons of ruling Olympus, he dies at the hand of Kronos and our theory comes to an end. Thank you for reading! Have a nice day! Lots of love!
Just kidding. Liam Neeson did die in Wrath Of The Titans but I have a solution to this little problem. I introduce you to Helius:
He is the grandson of Zeus and the son of the protagonist Perseus. My theory is that this kid will grow up to look exactly like his grandfather and as a descendant of a god, he has the ability of immortality. This is similar to the theory that the father from Malcolm In The Middle isn't Walter White in witness protection but Malcolm himself, having grown up to look like Bryan Cranston.
Being a descendant of the god of the skies, Helius spent his life exploring the stars until he came upon a little planet called Coruscant. To blend in more, he changed his name to Qui-Gon Jinn and met Yoda. Yoda saw great power in him and decided to teach him the ways of the force.
Now a Jedi master, Qui-Gon teaches Obi-Wan and discovers the chosen one, Anakin Skywalker. Upon Naboo, Qui-Gon dies at the hands of Darth Maul from impaling on a lightsaber and is then cremated. Aww. Again? Liam isn't making this easy for me.
If you've ever read the Star Wars Extended Universe graphic novel Resurrection, then you'll know that Darth Maul had been resurrected by the Prophets Of The Dark Side. I believe that the Emperor (under the guise of Chancellor Palpatine) stole Qui-Gon's body and resurrected him to manipulate him to the dark side.
This did not go so well, Qui-Gon had gone insane and tried to kill the people on board the Emperor's ship. To cover it up, the Emperor knocked him out, wiped his memory and dumped him on the planet Earth in the late 1800s.
Still insane and confused, Helius took the name Clinch Leatherwood and became an outlaw, killing everyone who got in his way. Clinch gets into an abusive relationship with Anna Barnes who falls in love with Albert Stark. Mad at him, Clinch gets into a duel with Albert and dies after being shot with a rattlesnake venom tainted bullet.
Several Native Americans took pity on the dead Clinch and used their tribal magic to bring him back to life. Clinch saw a new chance at life and hopped on a boat to Germany and took the new name Oskar Schindler.
During World War II, Oskar took many Jewish people to work in his munitions factory to save them from concentration camps. After the Nazis lost, Oskar left Germany to live a quiet life. Oskar had gone missing and was presumed dead by many. His grave was visited by many of the Jews that he saved.
Oskar had actually travelled to South Asia where he came across a league of ninjas. Oskar demonstrated his abilities as the grandson of Zeus and was immediately promoted to their leader and was named Ra's Al Ghul (head of the demon).
As the leader of the League Of Assassins, Ra's developed a hatred towards Gotham and made several attempts to destroy it. Ra's eventually met a Gotham native named Bruce Wayne and trained him. Bruce destroyed his dojo and Ra's decided to take revenge by trying to destroy Gotham.
Bruce had become Batman and went up against Ra's. His plan failed and he seemingly died when his train had crashed and exploded. His godly powers helped him survive the blast and he faked his death and spent a few years recovering.
Ra's took the name of Bryan Mills and stayed in America where he joined the CIA. He married Lenore and had a daughter named Kim. His work with the CIA led to a divorce and he became estranged from his family. Bryan retired from the CIA after awhile.
Everything changed when Kim was kidnapped and Bryan traveled to Europe to get her back. After the fiasco, Bryan took a job at an oil drilling facility in Alaska as an expert at wolf killing. To protect his family, Bryan temporarily changed his name to John Ottway.
John was in a plane crash and was forced to help a team get through the wilderness while being hunted down by a pack of wolves. John is the sole survivor and manages to kill the alpha wolf. John returns home to America as Bryan Mills.
While in Istanbul, Lenore is kidnapped by some terrorists seeking revenge and teams up with Kim to rescue her. Bryan once again saves his family by defeating the terrorists and seems to now be living happily.
During his work with the CIA, Bryan had crossed paths with a boy named Finn. The boy used Bryan as an inspiration for a character in his fictional Lego verse which he named Good Cop/Bad Cop.
Bryan discovers that Lenore had been murdered and is now on the run from the LAPD while he tries to find Lenore's killer. Bryan eventually clears his name and is content with his daughter and her boyfriend and will hopefully live happily from now on.
From grandson of a god, to jedi master, to old western outlaw, to Nazi defector, to Batman villain, to CIA agent. Liam Neeson has had quite the journey. This took all afternoon and I'm currently questioning if it was worth my time. Oh well, #yolo.
Now before you start commenting, if you're going to hate on this theory, DON'T. This was a done as a dare and is mostly a joke. Anything you say to denote this theory I will simply ignore because it serves no purpose. I do not expect you to believe this theory, nor do I believe it necessary to hate on it. Hope you guys have a good day!
