Novel Captain Nobody : Character Traits + Evidence, Opinoin (1)


CHARACTER TRAIT  : TALENTED

Newt has an amazing talent at sketching pictures of superheroes character. He has his Secret Superhero Sketchbook where he draws his superheroes like Guy Wire who was exposed from radiation and could bounce and stretch himself.

OPINION

Newt does not let others treatment of him affects his life. He is happy to spend his time sketching characters of his superheroes. It is like an avenue for him to channel his frustrations and turn it into a positive vibe. Indulging in the sketching of the superheroes characters also hone his creativity. He spends his time engaging in creative pursuit instead of being involved in wasteful activities.

CHARACTER TRAIT  : DETERMINATION

This is shown when Newton Newman helps Cecil to get a big bass drum from the top of a dumpster. Cecil calls Captain Nobody to help him get the drum because he cannot get it down by himself. Cecil insists that Captain Nobody is the one who should climb the dumpster. At first, Newt hesitates to climb the dumpster as he is an acrophobic. However, when he disguises as Captain Nobody, he feels more confident to overcome his fear of height. He is determined to help his best friend and continues climbing the dumpster. He almost gives up in the beginning but later succeeds. He carefully passes the drum to his sidekick, Cecil who is waiting with open arms on the ground.

During the Big Game, Chris shows his determination to win. At first Merrimac is leading. Without giving up, Chris and his teammates go on fighting. Chris finds his way for a touchdown. He manages to bring victory to Fillmore for the second time.


OPINION

This shows that Newt is a determined person. If I were Newt, as a ten-year-old boy, I would not have that great determination to climb the dumpster. His action has inspired me to be determined in facing challenges in life.
Determination will lead us to success. Chris’s determination to win paid off although he is knocked down. We should practice determination in our life so that we can achieve success. Being determined will bring us the victory that we deserved.

CHARACTER TRAIT : BRAVE / COURAGEOUS

This is shown when Newt rescues his brother’s rival, Reggie Ratner from a “suicide attempt”. Newt knows that he has to tell Reggie that it is not his fault. It is Chris’ own teammate, Darryl Peeps who knocks Chris unconscious. Since the Big Game, everybody has blamed Reggie for knocking Chris into a coma. Newt gathers his courage to climb although the ladder is rusty and the tower structure is weak. With the help his best friends, Cecil and JJ, Captain Nobody climbs the ladders to the top and slithers his way to reach Reggie. When he is half way, he looks down and feels terrified. But he gathers his courage and continue with his climb. He then finds out that Reggie climbs the tower to vandalise the water tank. They both end up falling from the tower into a mattress as they descend the rotten ladder. Newt suffers a broken ankle and two broken ribs when Reggie lands on top of him.

As he is walking home with his best friends, Cecil and JJ, they are stopped by Ricky Ratner. Ricky is angry as his cousin Reggie, Chris’ rival, is still being hassled by Chris’ friends. They scramble Ferocious’ cage until the cage door opens. When Ferocious escapes from his cage, Captain Nobody goes in hot pursuit until he reaches the highway. He bravely dodges the incoming traffic just to get Ferocious back. He waves frantically to stop the vehicles and ends up stopping four lanes of traffic. As soon as the traffic stops, a small aeroplane with engine trouble makes a safe emergency landing. Captain Nobody not only rescues Ferocious but also the passengers on the plane.


OPINION

This shows that Newt is a brave/ courageous boy. If I were Newt, I would not have great courage to climb to the top of the water and rescue Ricky. His action inspires me to be a courageous person in facing any challenges in life. Life sometimes makes us go through difficult times, but being brave helps us to overcome our own fear. We will be able to endure challenges in life.
