It states, “We looked upon Union 5-3992, who were a pale boy with only half a brain, and we tried to say and do as they did, that we might be like them, like Union 5-3992, but somehow the Teachers knew that we were not.” (Rand 21).

His father shouting at him to get him to notice his mistake then ripped the tape out of his head with anger, pulling 60 hairs out of his scalp. And after all of that, he decided to make the situation worse to start disciplining his son by hitting. This to me shows how none of the charters in the story show sympathy and are all selfish.

From his parents, he barely gained the warmth of being in a complete family. As Ponyboy said, “His father was always beating him up, and his mother ignored him, except when she was hacked off at something, and then you could hear her yelling at him clearly down at our house. He hates that worse than getting whipped…If it hadn’t been for the gang, Johnny would never have known what love and affection are” (Hinton P.12), we can clearly known that Johnny’s parents were extraordinarily violent to Johnny. Due to the charac- teristic of Johnny’s father, the hereditary gene of violence affected fixed some of Johnny’s personal- ity. Also, Johnny was only the one who serves as a vent to his parents’ anger.
Vernon, the detention monitor, hates Bender due to his refusal to listen, attitude and disrespect for him. Andrew, another student in detention, loathes Bender because he bullies him about being a wrestler and dislikes the way Bender treats Claire. This film connects to Linda Seger’s “The Hero Myth” which outlines the steps generally followed in hero stories. Because Bender begins the movie disrespecting his classmates, is despised by Vernon and Andrew, and pushes the class to interact which creates a bond between them, Bender fulfills Seger’s claims that the character “begins as a non-hero”, encounters
