He arrived 15 years ago and has been involved in some of the most explosive storylines in the soap's history.
The soap has teased Max will leave Albert Square alive.
However some fans are convinced Max will be murdered in a shock exit for the show's 36th anniversary today.
But after he revealed Mick’s abuse hell to Linda – and almost the entire pub – Mick threatened to kill him.
He told Max: “I’ve got some news for you and all – you're going to stop busying yourself near my wife.
“You ain't going to go near her again, you ain't going to talk to her again, you aren't even going to look at her again.
“Do you understand what I'm saying to you? I'm telling you now you're going to stay away from her. I said don't look at her, don't talk to her.”
Max insisted: “I only want what's best for her, and you. You think this is going to sort your marriage out, Mick?
“Me keeping my distance. You know why she's with you, don't you? Pity."
With that Mick punched Max so hard he flew across the Vic and landed on a table.
In front of the pub, Mick warned Max: "Come near my wife again and I'll kill you."
