Also, when the church caught on fire Johnny took the chance and saved kids who were trapped. In some ways Johnny isn’t a hero because when he killed Bob he knew the police would be after for him, and instead of turning himself in he runs away. This is wrong when Johnny thinks about what he has done he changed his mind and wanted to turn himself in. Above all, Johnny is the most heroic character in “The Outsiders.”
Dally did not care he was not a hero and that shows the reader he was not. Johnny killed someone but it was to protect Pony and he helped saved kids from burning in that burning Church.

For example, Darry Curtis, Ponyboy’s oldest brother, gave up a college scholarship in order to work to be able to provide for his little brothers since their parents had passed away. Furthermore, Dally Winston demonstrates his heroism when he dies saving Johnny from the burning church.

When a few boys get stranded on an island Golding shows the effects that truly push man to the edge; however the contentious question of the root of their madness. The boys go through plenty from arriving on the island to finally escaping the darkness that the island has made them become.
