Characters Remarks

Max and Kevin do not fit in well. They need each other because when they are together they are unstoppable. They are 'Freak the Mighty.' They help each other through things. Max is the legs and Freak is the brain. They are loyal to each other and they stay true to each other. They are each other's motivation. "Freak is still holding tight to my shoulders and when they ask him for his name, he says, 'We're Freak the Mighty, that's who we are. We're nine feet tall and unstoppable if you haven't noticed.' That's how it started, really, how we got to be Freak the Mighty, slaying dragons and fools and walking high above the world." (Pg. 39-40) They stay with each other through everything through thick and thin, they stay loyal.

They stand by each other through everything. They are loyal to one another. Since they've found each other they've become better than they were before. Max is a lot happier and Kevin is a lot more lively. It's amazing how friends can change each other! They are 'Freak the Mighty.' Nine feet tall of a smart, fighting, unstoppable machine.
