[[WMG: Tom Lincoln is [[{{Trainspotting}} Mark Renton]]

Rents, after he [[spoiler: scams Sick Boy at the end of Literature/{{Porno}}]] sets himself up in the US and discovers a hidden talent for design. Since Sick Boy wants revenge, he changes his name. Why he looks so young is because he avails of replacement organs already. Also, when he attacks his clone in the house, he mistakes the clone for one of his former so-called-mates out for revenge.

The former example, in addition to being a bit of a LampshadeHanging on the PlotArmor that ensures their improbable survival, might well be a [[ShoutOut hat-tip]] from the creator of the movie (MichaelBay) to his own [[{{God}} Creator]]. In other words, we're being invited to think of the author of the script as being the ''Deus'' in the DeusExMachina that saves their lives. The latter example, meanwhile, reinforces the idea that, rather than simply throwing away your faith because your former god (Don Creech, billed in the credits as the "God-Like Man") proved to be a false idol, you should go find a real God. The Island, which your keepers promised you was going to be a utopia, turns out to be a scam? Then go find a real island.
