Stranger Things: Eleven’s Journey and the Need of Powers

If you are a Stranger Things fan, then you probably know that the most powerful character of the series is Eleven. A lot of questions have been raised about her powers and people keep on wondering about their origin. We already know that Eleven possesses deadly psychic powers, but where did she get them from? And why? In this article we will try to understand what it is behind these incredible abilities.

E.T. The Stranger

E.T. The Stranger is an American drama film from 1982, directed by Steven Spielberg. It tells the story of a young boy who befriends and helps an alien stranded on Earth after accidentally being left behind by his companions in a spaceship.

The film is famous for its combination of realistic setting, magical atmosphere, and emotional impact on its audience. Its success was due partly to its ability to appeal both to children and adults in different ways: while children can relate easily with Elliott (the main lead), adults have access to deeper meanings through their knowledge of life experiences that they’ve gained over time.

Elliott’s encounter with E.T., who becomes his best friend despite being fairly different from him at first glance, shows us that true friendship doesn’t depend on having similar interests or backgrounds but rather relies on mutual respect as human beings regardless of gender or race – something we’ve already seen Eleven faces when she had trouble adjusting into her new life in Hawkins after escaping from Hawkins Lab where she had been experimented upon throughout most of her childhood years until meeting Mike Wheeler’s family who took her under their wing as one more member of the family rather than treating her like some kind of object or pet which was how she was treated by scientists at Haskins Labs throughout those same years when she first arrived there as a baby girl named Jane Hopper (who later changed back into El).

Stranger Things is an American science fiction horror drama television series created by the Duffer Brothers and streaming on Netflix. The brothers serve as showrunners and are executive producers along with Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen. The first season of the series was released on Netflix on July 15, 2016, with the second, third, and fourth seasons following in October 2017, July 2019, and May and July 2022, respectively. The series was renewed for a fifth and final season in February 2022.

Eleven’s powers

Eleven’s powers are a very interesting topic. The way they were discovered, the way she uses them and the reason why she is different from other characters in the series are all very interesting questions that need to be addressed.

Eleven’s powers have been mentioned throughout the whole series. Her first appearance was at Hawkins Lab, where they were studying her telekinetic abilities. They wanted to know what caused these powers and how they could use them for their own purposes. After some time, Eleven was able to escape from her cell and leave with Mike Wheeler’s help; however, we still don’t know much about this mysterious girl or her background story which might be revealed in season 4 of Stranger Things (we can only hope so).

The experiments at the Hawkins Lab

When Eleven is being experimented on in the lab, we learn that the experiments are not for her benefit. They are all about control and power, money, science, and the government. The scientists want to find out how each of their powers works so they can control them. But instead of using that knowledge for good, their goal is to use it to gain power over others.

They also experiment on other people (like Will) because they’re curious about how their bodies work when they have strange abilities or are exposed to otherworldly powers like Eleven’s ability to harness electricity with her mind.

Powers are not everything…

In the end, what is more, important than powers? In a sense, they are just things that make us feel good. They can be fun and give us a feeling of power. But really, we need more than that. We need to feel human in our lives; we need love; we need a home; we need friends; etc. The list goes on and on but you get it. Powers might help you forget about some problems for a little while but those problems will always come back around again eventually (just like Eleven’s memory).

The point is this: don’t let yourself get caught up in thinking that powers will solve all your problems or make everything better because ultimately they won’t! You may think I am contradicting myself here because I said earlier how great powers are but honestly I think it depends on what type of person you are and how much work/energy/effort etc has gone into achieving them (I know this isn’t really an answer but maybe it will help someone else who thinks like me).


We hope that this post has given you a better understanding of where Eleven comes from, and all the ways in which she’s been put through the wringer in her short life. She wasn’t born with powers—she was made a test subject at birth, and then raised to be a weapon. Her journey is one of discovery; she starts out as a blank slate, with no knowledge of the world or even herself, but slowly pieces together who she really is as time goes on. If there’s anything we can learn from her story, it’s that we should never give up trying to find out our own identities—no matter what obstacles stand in our way.”
