Analyzing Characters

Bilal the Superhero

"Pih-yow!" young Bilal yelled at the imaginary bad guys. Bilal was only four years old. He managed to transform himself into a superhero by pinning a sheet to his shirt. Bilal jumped off his chair to make his cape sail. The four-year-old waved his plastic sword around like a dangerous weapon. He spun around and jabbed his sword into the pillow on his bed. "I got you!" he announced with authority. "Now you're going to jail."

"Your little brother is so cute. Look at him fighting the bad guys with all his heart. He is quite the superhero!" Gemma cooed to Wasi as they watched Bilal play through the window. Gemma was mesmerized by Bilal's fearless movements and shouts. She could see that the pretend bad guys were very real to him.

"You only say that because he doesn't live with you. He is a monster. He breaks everything he grabs with his germy claws. He leaves a trail of grime everywhere he goes. He lurks in the shadows and attacks me when I least expect it. How is that for cute?" complained Wasi.
