In his attempt to expose Ed 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 revolutionize the System, Flynn becomes a prisoner in the world he recreated for decades thanks in part to his creation CLU 2.
