Rounding out our list of unsung Halloween heroes is Halloween 4’s Brady.

More from Halloween

As the boyfriend of Rachel Carruthers, Brady’s life is pretty great. He’s good looking, popular and has a solid girlfriend with a good head on her shoulders. Only, when Michael Myers come back to finish what he started Brady must decide what kind of man he truly is.

Before I get to my main point, I want to make two things clear. Yes, he did cheat on Rachel with Kelly Meeker. And yes, Brady does try to leave when things begin to get crazy. But he’s a high school kid — I was terrible at 17.

What’s most important is he sacrifices his life when push comes to shove. As Michael makes his way into the Meeker house, he eventually finds a distraught Rachel and Jamie. Brady, almost certainly knowing he’s going to die, jumps in to buy the two some time. I don’t know about you, but that’s the ultimate selfless thing to do.
