Stranger Things’ Bravest Hero Is Not Hopper

In Stranger Things: The Tomb of Ybwen, a surprising character from the Netflix sensation shows why he might just be the bravest man in Hawkins.

WARNING: The following contains spoilers for Stranger Things: The Tomb of Ybwen #2, on sale now from Dark Horse Comics.

In the Stranger Things franchise,  Chief Hopper or one of the teens is usually the bravest hero around, given how they’ve fought back against beings from the Upside Down. While Eleven also faces these forces, she has her powers, whereas her unpowered friends are willing to sacrifice themselves for the family if need be.But in Stranger Things: The Tomb of Ybwen #2, by Greg Pak, Diego Galindo, Francesco Segala and Nate Piekos, the teens’ teacher Mr. Clarke makes a surprisingly strong case for being Hawkins’ bravest hero.


Clarke’s been an unofficial mentor to the boys in the show, guiding them in A.V. Club through their geek dalliances, including books and games like Dungeons & Dragons. He’s a nerd as well, and this story finds him and Will connecting at school over the death of Bob.

Will is still heartbroken over Bob, who he saw grow close to his mom before getting ripped to pieces by the Demodogs in Season 2. However, Clarke makes it clear Will should soldier on, since Bob founded the A.V. Club and wanted the future generations to partake in stuff he enjoyed. It’s why Clarke rummages through Bob’s keepsakes and gives Will a treasure map that takes him to the Mirkwood Bridge.

But instead of going with his friends, Will decides to do it on his own, during a blizzard. He’s jealous that the other guys are invested more in girls and treating him like an afterthought, despite his tormented past/ Accordingly, he lies about meeting them up and heads to where the X is on the map. Thankfully, the teens wise up after realizing that Will isn’t joining them, and they head out to find their buddy as they can tell he’s trying to pay tribute to Bob by finding his treasure.

Sadly, as conditions deteriorate when they meet up, there’s a debilitating flaw in their escape plan. The snow gets worse, and the kids get stuck, even if they make up. They lose the map to the tomb too, and Dustin’s foot gets damaged from a fall into the frozen ice. To make matter worse, the power is out as well and the winds are still ruthlessly roaring, which only adds to the kids’ precarious position.

Luckily, Clarke, who’s on a date with his fellow teacher Jen, picks up a radio signal from Lucas’ walkie-talkie. He just so happens to be fiddling around as the phone lines are down, so it’s quite serendipitous. However, that chance encounter leads to him gathering medical supplies and other essentials in case anyone’s in trouble and going after the kids.

Clarke suits up like a sherpa, showing a steadfast confidence and vowing to find the boys. This is a far cry from his awkward, timid self, and Jen sends him off by planting a big kiss on him, acknowledging that he’s turned into the boys’ savior.

While the kids are inexperienced enough to not appreciate how dangerous their situations can be, Clarke is walking into a blizzard all by himself with full knowledge of how dangerous that situation is. While there’s some questionable wisdom at play here, there’s no question that what Clarke is doing is ultra brave.
