About Ben Hanscom
Shy and intelligent, Ben Hanscom didn’t always stand out except for the few instances where Henry Bowers would find him and bully him for being overweight. One of the first friends he would make in Derry was a girl who went by the name of Beverly Marsh. Ben quickly developed a crush on Beverly but as children she was only interested in Bill.
But as they both grew up and returned to Derry, Beverly quickly grew feelings for Ben and ended up dating before eventually getting married to him. Returning to Derry wasn’t an easy feat for Ben. He always feared the thing known as It and never wanted to witness it’s horror again. He eventually grew the courage and returned to fight It one last time so no more children would be harmed.
