Childhood and adolescence
Barrie was the ninth child of ten (two of whom died before he was born), all of whom were schooled in at least the three Rs in preparation for possible professional careers. He was a small child and drew attention to himself with storytelling. He grew to only 5 ft 31⁄2 in.
Peter Pan was one of the most powerful villains ever faced, so powerful that even his son, Rumplestiltskin, the dark one was scared of him (although he may have just feared him so much because he was his father).
Because Peter Pan is a story that continues to inspire and fascinate us, and never grows old – just like Peter himself. A timeless classic with hope at its heart, it's a poignant reminder of the quick passing of innocence and youth.

Is Captain Hook the good guy?

Mary Martin originated the role of Pan in the Broadway musical version of his story ("Peter Pan, The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up") when she was 41, earning a Tony in 1955. She also played the role on three separate NBC telecasts in 1955, 1956 and 1960 and won an Emmy in 1956 for the part.
Why did Peter Pan chose Wendy instead of Tinker Bell?
"In that case, did Peter Pan chose Tinkerbell instead?" "No, he chose Neverland, he chose his home, but his heart will always be Wendy's." "Oh, so both of them can't sacrifice in order to be together? Wendy can't leave her family, while Peter can't leave Neverland, so they chose to just part ways."
Peter Pan is sort of a kid-friendly Grim Reaper who guides children to their ideal afterlife (it says so in the original book). The Lost Boys were all dead and in their version of heaven, perhaps the pirates were all dead as well and in their version of hell.
"Tinker Bell was never in love with Peter Pan, she was sort of a groupie. Peter would go on his adventures and she would get to go with him, and what she was really worried about with Wendy was that maybe he wouldn't take her on the adventures anymore, he would take that ugly old girl!
Peter Pan was a deranged psychopath who tricked and trapped little kids in Neverland [sic: Never Land]. He killed them after they grew up, which is why they never could leave as adults. Captain Hook escaped Neverland as an adult, which explains why Peter killed Hook, and fed his arm to a crocodile.
