John Connor character

John Connor (February 28, 1985–July 4, 2032?) is a major fictional character in the science-fiction Terminator series of movies.
In a possible post-apocalyptic future where machines run dominant, John Connor is the leader of the human rebel group Tech-Com that opposes them. Skynet, the supercomputer mainframe of the machines, decides that John Connor is the focal point of the rebellion and his termination would end the opposition. After repeated failures at terminating John during the war, Skynet decides to use a time dilation device to send terminators to various points in John Connor's past in an attempt to terminate him before the war begins.

Character History

John was born when his mother Sarah Connor was hiding off the grid after the events of The Terminator. Sarah had decided to leave comfortable living to keep John safe and to prepare him for his future role as the leader of the human rebellion during the machine war. John spent the early years of his life learning about weapons, computer technology and espionage. When his mother was captured for trying to blow up a Cyberdyne research facility in the early 1990s, John was seized by social workers who told him that his mother's stories of the post-apocalyptic future were delusions. Accordingly, Sarah was sent to a mental institute and John to foster parents Todd and Janet Voight. John was unable to cope with suburban living and became a juvenile delinquent. In 1995 he was confronted with the T-1000 that was sent to terminate him, and upon realising that his mother's stories were true, he and his protector the reprogrammed T-800 helped Sarah escape from the mental institute. During their time together John bonded with the T-800, who became a friend and father figure to him. However, once the T-1000 was destroyed along with all of Cyberdyne's research, the T-800 asked that it be destroyed also so that its technology would not be discovered and used by others.
John continued to live off the grid after the events of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, even as the original Judgment Day deadline of August 29th, 1997 came to pass without incident. His mother eventually developed leukemia and died, and John refused to attend her funeral. In 2003, John crossed paths with Katherine Brewster, a former neighbor from when he was living with his foster parents. It is also at this time that he is attacked by the T-X and saved by another reprogrammed T-850, revealing that Judgment Day had not been avoided as he had initially thought. Although John and Katherine try to halt the launching of Skynet, they are led to an underground bunker where they are kept safe and out of the way when the first aerial assault is launched on the United States as a result of Skynet's manipulations. It is via the working radios in this bunker that John starts his career as a military leader.
In an omitted original ending of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, an adult John is shown as a U.S. Senator in a future of peace, and has a daughter of his own. This alternate future is presumably the result of the successful destruction of the Cyberdyne research lab by Sarah Connor, young John Connor, the re-programmed T-800 and Miles Dyson earlier in the movie. Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines negates the presence of this alternate future with its claim that Judgment Day could not be avoided, only postponed.
