Seriously, many of the traps Kevin sets in the first two films would be lethal or crippling to anyone who doesn't have Wolverine's healing factor from the X-Men: paint cans to the head, bricks to the head, irons to the face, gasoline explosions, falls from 2 stories or more, electrocution, being crushed by heavy objects, and the list goes on. If Harry and Marv were mere mortals, they'd both be dead by the end of the first movie or would be in wheelchairs in the sequel.

But not as another VillainProtagonist. Alex only had one adventure instead of two, he wasn't abandoned for days on end, his siblings' bullying never went as far as the [=McCallister=] kids', and he was recognized by his family and the government for his efforts and even apologized to for being branded a liar by the police, so he most likely would have grown up more well-adjusted. Given that he wanted to grow up to be a cop, maybe he did, and when another Chicago-based trap-maker makes the news as a SerialKiller, Alex recognizes his own EvilCounterpart and requests to be put on the case.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: Kate had an affair with Gus Polinski ]]
Even though we don't see them snog it could be implied Kate and Gus at some point between the airport at Scranton and Kevin's home had an affair. A clear sign of Kate falling in love at first sight with Gus is at the airport in Scranton where she smiles awkwardly at him after he introduces himself and still has that lovey dovey look in her face in the lorry. It is possible Kate does not have a spark in her marriage with Peter anymore and found Gus more her taste than her husband. Of course Kate and Gus would keep this affair a secret so Peter would obviously never find this out.

[[WMG: Fuller is actually Kevin's half brother ]]
We know that in the film the guy who plays Fuller is Malculary Culkin's brother in real life but Fuller is actually Kevin's brother not his cousin or at least half brother. Even though Frank appears to be the dad Peter is ACTUALLY the dad. For one thing Fuller looks like Kevin in the face including the eyes, hair colour and lips. And let's not forget Kevin and Lennie one of his sisters have blonde hair. So by putting two and two together Peter before the arrival of Fuller had an affair with Leslie and accidentally got her pregnant. But it is possible Leslie still had sex with Frank afterwards and missed her period making her think Frank is the dad. So if that the case Peter does not know Fuller is his biological son instead of being his nephew.

* This can even serve to explain the [[ContinuitySnarl continuity errors]] in the fourth film; we already established that SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker has a MultipleChoicePast, so what we see as the fourth film could actually be [[UnreliableNarrator a warped retelling of the first two films]], or at least, the fourth film ''did'' happen, [[BroadStrokes but not as shown]]; the contradictions to the first two films are more because we're seeing it through his perspective, and we've already established that [[{{Understatement}} he's not very well in the head]].
