Michael in 2007
|Portrayed by||Michael B. Jordan|
Michael Carter was the older brother and killer of Terrance Carter. He was always very loving and protective of his younger and only sibling. But this relationship would be put to the test and then would eventually fall apart when their father, Gerald, a convict who both boys deeply craved love and attention from, would show up to work things out with his boys and Terrance later "screwing up" Michael's attempts in joining The 29th Street Crew, a local gang in their neighborhood. Michael, being furious over this and extremely jealous of Terrance getting the love and care specifically from the people who used to give him the same feelings, but now were ending them: Gerald Carter, their father and The 29th Street Crew because what they thought of him at this time was he's a nobody, a loser, a wannabe, and has no possible chance competing with Terrance, his way smarter, more confident, cooler brother. Now feeling useless, unloved, and unwanted by the mentioned people above because of Terrance, he would lose it and kill his baby brother.
