In “The Outsiders,” by S.E. Hinton, Johnny Cade, becomes a hero by exchanging his life for others. Johnny wanted to live a good life, but when he killed a soc he became a murderer. So, he ran away to an old church. After a while the church caught on fire and kids were trapped inside.
This quote from the book states Johnny saved kids from dying in a burning church“the door was blocked by flames, pushed open the window and tossed out the nearest kid.”(p.92) It shows that he saved kids from burning in a church. A hero helps others at any cost making people use them as an example of good stewardship. Greasers are not always good but some are kind people. Pony defiantly was a hero who helped others. Dally did not care he was not a hero and that shows the reader he was not.
The definition of a hero is different to many people, but those three characters matched up with mine as a true hero. Johnny died because he saved kids lives that he claims were “worth more than his”. Dally died fearless, heroic, and strong. He could not live without Johnny becuase he was the only one who understood how it’s like to have no family at all, and Dally had to witness him die right in front of his face. The most important thing is, that they both died a HERO, and Ponyboy will continue living as one.

On page 91 it says, “He says I’ve got it and ran inside”. This shows that he felt it was his and Ponyboy’s fault and that they should fix it. Another dilemma is when he killed Bob to protect Ponyboy. On page 56 it says, “Next thing I noticed was a dark pool of blood” Therefore he is a hero to Ponyboy for saving him. From these examples it shows that Johnny is heroic.

It comes as a surprise to Reuben when he sees that Jape Waltzer is in charge of Davy now because he had “never before heard Davy speak about someone else as though that person and not he himself were in charge” (226).
