Freak is very short and he has crutches because he was born physically disabled. Freak is in the 8th grade, and is very smart. He loves his dictionary. In freaks dictionary he has underlined all of his favorite words and pretty much 3/4 of the dictionary is underlined. Freak has a mother named Gwen but, freak likes to refer to he as "The fair gwen of air" because he loves the story of King Arthur.
Max is very tall and has more of a mental disability which in this case a learning disability (LD) he thinks and or condsiders himself "dumb" because he is not as smart as the people in his grade. Max has a dad in prison named "Killer Kane" and the rumor has it that his dad killed his mom. Max also has a grandmother and a grandfather that go by Gram and Grim.
Reflection and Application of Theme
If we over come our fears we can accomplish things in life and become great people.
I chose this symbol because, I think well actually picture as if they shared one brain together. Freak is the more spring like pink because it is like the healthy part of the brain. Max (Mighty) is the purple half because when i see the color purple it reminds me of bruises and so he has like the swollenhalf of the brain. Yes considering the fact that he has a learning disability. Although he is like pretty smart when it doesnt come to learning things (school)
Yin and Yang
Now, you can see that i titled this symbol as "Yin and Yang" i chose this symbol because it does not mean power or strength. In fact it really doesn't mean anything but it does represent something. I picture the Yin Yang as two fish like a horoscope symbol (Pisces). See, the black fish with the white dot is Yin. The white fish with the black dot is Yang. Yin and Yang will always stay together no matter what they cannot be apart. That's why i chose this symbol because it is seemed to be that Freak The Mighty would not be Freak The Mighty. If they were apart they have formed a special bond in which case no matter what they will stay together.
Yin and Yang
" Freak the mighty, slaying dragons and fools and walking high above the world."
