My Theory :Maxwell was born into a world of hatred and war , he was born with a demon mother and father , and he was forced into living with the real world because his parents thought it was best for him. When he was 6 , he went into a primary school and had an enemy in his childhood , Wilson Higgsbury. He was better than him at everything. He was in a science fair because it was said to be fun , but Wilson won first prize. Maxwell got really jelly. when maxwell was 11 , he hired a mime for his 11th birthday party. the mime was horrible , and he was not paid , the mime spoke to him , and threatened him that he will get paid or he will curse him. Maxwell had no money , and he was forced to suffer...When he was 12 , he had a crush on a girl in his school , Willow , when he invited him over to his house , she was horrified and was cursed by the flames , she then became insane with fire , and maxwell was upset and blamed his parents. He ran away from his home , and sent willow home , then cried in the street corners.When he was 14 , wendy was a 11 year old girl , and she found him on the street corner and became friends with him. When wendy invited him in his house , he couldn't go to sleep , as he saw his sister WALK out of the bathroom , and she said "YOU LEAVE MY SISTER ALONE." Maxwell literally screamed because it was freaking him out , and he set off the burglar alarm , wendy's parents suddenly came downstairs after maxwell ran down , and he was started to get beaten with a baseball bat , bruised , and beaten , he ran away. 15 years old , maxwell looked into going to the gym because he was so unfit. where he met a man called Wolfgang , he was showing off with his 2 other friends , and he started mocking Maxwell when he walked in , calling him "shrimps aren't welcome in muscle town" as his friends started laughing and humiliating him , he walked out , angrily , as he magically set his hand on fire , and he suddenly only saw black , he saw a huge black figure , and he heard it whisper : "Master , welcome to your limbo" as he saw a land of nothing but weird lands , and many different things , there was nothing but an island , and a tree , a giant tree. that was walking towards him. He woke up in his old bed , surrounded by his parents. at 17 years old , he was walking along the street and saw wilson , much different to when he was when he was young. he was creating something , a robot ,and it came alive , and it walked towards you , and hated him , he saw him , and he decided to jump through wilsons front door , and the robot was torn in pieces , he hated all living things from then. he was 18 , maxwell , as he was walking through , the robot was there , as the robot was being tested , it was like a toy , but life sized , the robot came up , and the robot attacked maxwell , it almost killed him , as the robot got a kick in the head , and he fell apart again... Wilson and Maxwell had a fight , as maxwell was weaker , wilson won , and beat him into the ground. At 20 years old , maxwell met wickerbottom , as she was the new library keeper. as he was in the library , he was making too much noise , as he was kicked out , meaning he couldn't get into a university because he needed some books. (Insert more characters here because we don't know enough about them).At 37 years old , maxwell has had enough , he went to his limbo , and started creating monsters and things , and he put all of the people he hated and met in the past years in the limbo.
