"What's wrong, McFly? You got no scrote?"
—Spike

Leslie "Spike" O'Malley, was a member of Griff's gang in 2015, and was the first female member of any Tannen gang in known Hill Valley history. Her hoverboard was of the Question Mark design.

She demonstrated in the Cafe 80's that she could be as tough as any of the guys, when she grabbed Marty Jr. in a very personal place(!) and lifted him up off the floor.

Spike may have been the daughter of Heather, the public relations representative at Dr. Emmett Brown's Institute of Future Technology in 1991.

Behind the scenes

  • Thomas F. Wilson notes that Griff Tannen may have "let her in [the gang] because she's a great-looking babe".[1]
  • As with Rafe "Data" Unger and Chester "Whitey" Nogura, Griff's other accomplices, Spike was not referred to by name in the movie, but identified in the credits. Like Data and Whitey, she was identified as Leslie O'Malley in the 2015 USA Today story that appeared after the headline was changed from YOUTH JAILED - Marty McFly Junior arrested for Theft to GANG JAILED - Hoverboard Rampage Destroys Courthouse.
  • Spike was portrayed by Darlene Vogel, who also appeared as Heather, the I.F.T. public relations representative in the film accompanying the Universal Studios theme park adventure, Back to the Future: The Ride. Whether Spike is Heather's daughter has yet to be confirmed — or denied — in IDW Publishing's Back to the Future comic series.
  • Stunt performer Cheryl Wheeler doubled for Darlene Vogel in the scene where the gang chases Marty on hoverboards, and was hospitalized when a stunt went wrong. The footage of the mishap remained in the finished film; Spike can be seen hitting one of the pillars of the Courthouse Mall as the gang members crash through the front window. Luckily, Wheeler — who has been a three-time world champion as a kickboxer — recovered and continued film work until 2003.
