They can be proposed again (with the permission of an administrator) if new elements appear in their series that can change their status as non-PG heroes.
Any act of adding this hero to the Pure Good category without a proposal or creating a proposal for this hero without the permission of an administrator will result in a ban.

If my calculations are correct, when this baby hits 88 miles per hour... you're gonna see some serious s**t.

It means your future hasn't been written yet. No one's has. Your future is whatever you make it, so make it a good one. Both of you.

~ Emmett Brown’s famous exclaim.
Emmett Brown is the deuteragonist of the Back to the Future franchise. He was portrayed by Christopher Lloyd, who also played Charlie Wilcox in Suburban Commando and the title character in The Pagemaster. He was played by Christopher Lloyd in the live-action segments of Back to the Future: the Animated Series, while he was voiced by Dan Castellaneta, who voices Homer Simpson.
Dr. Brown is a mad scientist, with rather quirky and emotional manners, but also a very kind person. He invented the flux capacitor, that makes time travel possible, and built a time machine out of a DeLorean car. Despite its ingenuity, his invention caused many problems and often changed the History of Hill Valley, the films'setting.
Dr. Brown is the best friend of Marty McFly (who calls him "Doc") whom he took to many adventures by accident, and despite their completely opposed personalities, they make a great time-traveling team.
He is the only character doesn’t have any scenes interacting with Biff Tannen.
Like Django Freeman, he makes a cameo in the film A Million Ways to Die in the West.
In the movie Ready Player One, Doc makes a cameo in the Oasis, where he is wearing his futuristic outfit from Back to the Future Part II.
