      If I had to choose an antihero that I relate to, it would be Travis Bickle. Not because I want to assassinate a politician or anything like that, or even massacre pimps. I think it’s more because of the social awkwardness and trying to figure out how to channel those “bad ideas in my head” into something NOT antisocial.

      I don’t view Alex as an antihero. Tony Montana is more like an antihero in my mind. Alex is not redeemable, or good, in any way. Free will is wasted on him. Tony does seem to have some limits, and loyalty means something to him. His sister issues are nuts, yes, but he does have moral standards. To me, an antihero has to be capable of good on some level.
