[[WMG:In his early days, Immortan Joe made a failed attempt to conquer Bartertown.]]

Scrooloose paints his body the same way as the warboys, and while a member of the Lost Tribe, he is clearly set apart from them in some way. My guess is he accompanied Joe's raiding party, but was left behind when Auntie drove them back. He found his way to the Lost Tribe, which we know is based not excessively far from Bartertown, and his fighting skills ingratiated him to an extent, though the rest of the Tribe still doesn't trust him when Max arrives. Still, he evidently finds the idea of Tomorrowmorrowland more appealing than Valhalla, plus he might feel that Immortan Joe has abandoned him but he still has a chance with Captain Walker.

The original Max Rockatansky from the first movie has perished in the apocalypse. But his spirit has persisted and manifests itself (along with the Pursuit Special, which would explain it's miraculous recovery after being totaled so many times) to those in need - aside from the first movie, the central conflict never concerns him personally. While he always appears to be somewhat self-centered and disinterested in other people's plight, in reality he is simply testing them to see if their cause is just, and if it is, he always commits fully to their cause. After it is fullfilled, he disappears without a trace until someone somewhere in the wasteland is in a dire need again. This is supported by the both Fury Road and the video game where characters of roughly Max's age (judging by the looks) have no memory of a pre-war world, making Max MUCH OlderThanHeLooks.

The LethalWeapon adventures of Martin Riggs and friends are recurring hallucinations Max is having about himself in his former identity if Fight Club´s actions had failed or if he never even joined (flashes of these delusions appear in Fury Road). Riggs is [[WriteWhatYouKnow conveniently also a policeman]]. His suicidal tendencies are Max's sense of guilt over his role in helping to bring down civilization and [[spoiler:Jessie and Sprog's ultimate deaths]]. Jessie is even projected into Riggs´ [[spoiler:deceased wife]]. [[EscapistCharacter Riggs´]] [[LighterAndSofter enhanced personal life and sense of belonging]] in the last two Lethal Weapon sequels are simply Max's WishFulfillment.

Max Rockatansky's real name was Martin Riggs. In his late teens he was part of FightClub, possibly its Australian chapter (It could be in America as well, reflecting Mel Gibson's American-Australian background). The club is where he learned to be such a tough, stoic fighter. It also explains why he's already not much of a talker and is a little offbeat in the head (e.g. not scared to play chicken) at the beginning of the first Mad Max movie, since the Fight Club's influence marked his personality.

The social unravelling destroys Max's family life and he knows he contributed to it from his club days, which helps to further screw him up mentally and emotionally. That is the reason Max was affected by civilization's collapse in a way that puzzles even the other survivors in the MadMax sequels. It also explains why he is such a loner because he's denying himself human company as [[TheAtoner self-punishment]] for helping to create a CrapsackWorld.

The [[spoiler: Feral Kid]] in Mad Max 2 is [[UnreliableNarrator not telling the story straight]] because [[spoiler:he was born after the collapse happened, so he's embellishing his tale through hazy]] memories. He can only understand the collapse in terms of oil because what he remembers is that [[spoiler:when the Feral Kid was a child]], Max appeared in the middle of a struggle to control oil. The [[spoiler:much older]] members of the escaping party never bothered to explain the story straight or they passed away a long time before [[spoiler:the Kid]] narrates the story, so he's correctly narrating only what he saw with his own eyes but not the fall of the old order; besides, Fight Club's role in ending civilization would be murky at best even to well informed people in the escaping party due to the Club's underground nature. Of course oil is scarce because it's more difficult to get with all the technology and infrastructure destroyed by World War III. However, war didn't break out because the oil was drying up, but rather by the financial panic caused when the Fight Club carried out Tyler Durden's plan.

After Jack the Narrator gets rid of Tyler Durden via [[spoiler:shooting himself in the]] face, Riggs along with the rest of the Club, scattered away. He changed his name to Max Rockatansky to hide from any possible government prosecution due to his involvement in the Club, joined the police in Australia and got married. But Durden's plan was [[spoiler: already on its way as we can see in the final scene in Fight Club]]. So the collapse was slowly spreading until it reached Australia some 5 or 6 years after the action in Fight Club takes place, which is about the time the first Mad Max film ought to be set in.
