How is Ponyboy Curtis a hero in The Outsiders? Explain.

I would say Pony is a hero in two ways.  He is a hero in the conventional sense for helping to save the kids and he is a hero in a less conventional sense for overcoming his problems.We usually think of heroes as people who rescue other people or do something equally brave.  Pony did this, and so he is a hero in that way.But to me, a hero is also just someone we can or should admire.  And I think we should admire Pony for overcoming all the problems he has and the temptations to become a bad person.  I think Pony is admirable because he is going to “stay gold.”
