Anyway to be more clear, the trope is invalid because Alex is not the designated hero or hero of the story. None of the Runaways are. The show doesn\'t portray him or the others as heroes, more protagonists to their parents antagonist. Also you three criteria, Fool, Hypocrite and whiny can apply to all the Runaways not only Alex. Albeit in less then extreme terminology. All have acted unwisely , counter to common sense or made any emotional outbursts. Kind of like the teenage Runaways that they are.
