The Friday the 13th franchise has been a horror classic since its inception. One of the most iconic characters from this series is Jason Voorhees, who first appeared in 1980’s “Friday The 13th Part 2” and has become an enduring symbol of fear ever since.

Background Information About Jason:
Jason was born to Pamela Voorhees as a deformed child with severe facial deformities due to her being exposed to toxic waste while pregnant. He was sent away by his mother at a young age after she killed two camp counselors out of revenge for their negligence towards him when he drowned in Crystal Lake. Years later, he returned as an undead killer seeking vengeance against those who wronged him or anyone else unfortunate enough to cross paths with him.
Key Events In His Storyline:
-In “Friday The 13th Part 2” (1981), we see how Jason survived his drowning death and became driven by rage and hatred towards all living beings around him; killing them one by one until only Alice Hardy remains alive at Camp Crystal Lake where it all began years ago.
-In “Friday The 13th Part 3” (1982) , we find out that Mrs Voorhees had kept her son’s body preserved in ice so that no matter what happened he would never die again; thus making it possible for him to come back each time someone tries reviving Camp Crystal Lake . This movie also introduces us to Chris Higgins, whom becomes instrumental in helping defeat Jason once and for all during its climax scene which takes place inside an old barn near the lake shore .
-In “Friday The 13th: A New Beginning” (1985), we get our first glimpse into what might be considered some kind of humanity within this monster when Tommy Jarvis manages not only survive but also make contact with whatever part of himself still remained buried deep down beneath layers upon layers of violence inflicted over decades worth of killings ; leading up ultimately culminating into final showdown between these two forces locked together forevermore like Yin & Yang .
Jason Voorhees is one of cinema’s greatest villains whose legacy continues even today despite having died multiple times throughout various installments spanning across four decades worth content released under banner name ‘Friday Thirteenth’ franchise alone ! While there have been many interpretations surrounding character itself ranging from pure evil incarnate capable destroying anything standing way achieving ultimate goal destruction versus potential redemption through human connection shown glimpsing moments here there , bottom line remains same : No matter version seen portrayed screen .
