In his attempt to expose Dillinger, Flynn got sucked into the digital realm, helping Tron defeat the MCP and return to his world where he became the new CEO of ENCOM.
However, in his attempt to create and revolutionize a new System, Flynn becomes a prisoner in the world he recreated for decades thanks in part to his creation CLU 2. Though reunited with his son Sam, Flynn is forced to sacrifice himself to ensure the safety of his son and Quorra by reintegrating with CLU 2, the act utterly destroying himself.
