About this deal
Kain, Erik. "Negan Isn't The Only Thing Ruining 'The Walking Dead' But He Still Needs To Go". Forbes. Negan (full name in the television series: Negan Smith) is a fictional character in the comic book series The Walking Dead and in the television series of the same name. He was the leader of the Saviors, a group of survivors in the Sanctuary that oppresses other survivor communities and forces them to pay tribute to him. In the comics, the character's appearance is based on Henry Rollins, as confirmed by Charlie Adlard.  Jeffrey Dean Morgan portrays Negan in the television series, having first appeared in the sixth-season finale.  During Gabriel and Negan's walk into the Sanctuary, Negan uses Lucille to kill several walkers after they are detected, helping to open a path for the two men to safety. This is regarded by the cast as one of the best character entrances in the show. Negan and his bat are immediately shown as a dynamic duo that should be feared and respected. Lucille spills her first blood upon her introduction and from then on it is clear that Lucille is used for killing and not just for intimidation.
The fact that Negan has such a strong connection to his weapon of choice that it is almost an obsession only makes the bat more intriguing to audiences. Why is this bat so important and why does such a notorious villain treat his bat better than he treats any of the people around him. Louisville sluggers and therefore Lucille, weigh anywhere in between thirty ounces and forty-five ounces. The most likely weight of Lucille is forty-three ounces with a length of about forty-two inches. That would make Lucille a regulation heavyweight Louisville slugger that could do some serious damage.Lucille is a notorious weapon in The Walking Dead. She is seen killing many people and walkers. It is also suggested that she kills many more as Negan uses her as his main weapon throughout the series. Fast-forwarding again to the bar interrogation, the biker gang leader demands that Negan tells them where the doctors are. He gives in and circles where they are on a map, and the gang goes after them: Negan is later freed after his intel proves to be correct, leaving him consumed with guilt at selling the doctors out.
Her final battle ends with her broken and Negan burying her properly. It seems proper that Negan is the last person to wield her and the one to say goodbye to the bat he named after his wife. That is the poetic end of Lucille in the comic books.THE WALKING DEAD, Custom The Walking Dead Tumbler, Personalized The Walking Dead cup, Custom Glitter cup, Gift for The Walking Dead Lover Glen’s death is widely regarded as the most tragic death in both the comics and the show. The fact that he was so brutally murdered while his wife watched and screamed only made his death more horrifying. That death is, of course, attributed to Negan and Lucille. After the introduction of Lucille audiences desperately wanted to know the meaning behind her name. As more people died at the end of this barbed wire covered bat, interest only grew. Why did a bat that was used so viciously have such a normal name? Schedeen, Jesse (October 17, 2012). "The Walking Dead #103 Review". IGN . Retrieved October 17, 2012.

Jumping ahead again to his chat with Franklin, Laura comes in with all the treatments Lucille requires and Negan is ecstatic (“What goes around, comes around,” Franklin says).

Returning to the bar where he was held by Craven, Negan uses Lucille to kill a man before taking his gun and killing the rest of the Valak's Vipers. After talking with a bound Craven about how he now views himself as being "capable of damn near anything", Negan kills him with Lucille. In season 8, Negan vaguely states that he helped young people improve upon their weaknesses and molded them into stronger individuals. In the season 10 episode " Here's Negan", he is portrayed as having been a high school gym teacher. Negan later met a woman named Lucille and the pair fell in love and married. Over time, however, Negan began cheating on her. She found out about the affair and he begged her forgiveness, which she granted. Around this time, Negan was fired from his job because he assaulted a man whose kids went to the school he taught at because the man had insulted his wife. In the onset of the outbreak, Negan ventured out into the walker-filled wilderness to find medicine for Lucille's pancreatic cancer, but when he returned, he found that she had died and become a walker.
