In Back to the Future Part II, Marty McFly visits a dystopian timeline where Biff Tannen has taken over Hill Valley, murdered Marty's dad, and married his mom. This turns out to be because his older self in 2015 stole the DeLorean to give his younger self in 1955 a Sports Almanac that enabled him to become wealthy by gambling. But when you think about it, it would take more than results of sporting events for a less-than-brilliant teenage bully to become a wealthy corporate titan.
Biff to the Future, a new six-issue miniseries from IDW, tells that story. Beginning with young Biff receiving the almanac, it follows him as he realizes just what he has and how to use it, and then start accumulating money and power.
Of all the movies I obsessed over in my youth, I don't think that any of them had a character as thoroughly wretched as Biff Tannen. As the primary villain of the Back to the Future trilogy, he exists to ruin multiple generations of the McFly family, with horrible schemes that are responsible for breaking the timestream itself. I mean, it's one thing to cheat to win, but to use time travel to cheat so much that it winds up turning his hometown into a nightmare dystopia? That's honestly the least of what Makes Biff such a horrible person.
Now, though, we're getting a few more details about the fall, rise, fall, rise, and fall of Hill Valley's least favorite son in the form of IDW's newest Back to the Future series, Biff to the Future, from BTTF screenwriter Bob Gale, Derek Fridolfs, and Alan Robinson.
