Rebel without rebellion: Mike.

I think that it's safe to agree that Michael is a very dull child who led a very boring childhood punctuated by acts of teeth-grinding stupidity. It would be rather inappropriate to say the least to call this unremarkable and somewhat pliable drone anything like a rebel but he thinks that he is. From what I can see, there are two reasons that he arrogates to himself a status he never possessed in the first instance.

The first reason, as you might have guessed, is that the fragile flowers that surround him are too feeble to cope with a surly, gullible imbecile who's full of himself and who radiates contempt for everyone not privileged enough to be him. This need of his parents to behave as if he's anything special and to give up trying to control him constitutes an active danger to the boy.

Said danger is feeding into an already bloated ego that likes the idea of being a monster because he cannot tolerate the idea that he is what he actually is: The Friend Nobody Likes. He likes thinking that he's this big threat because the alternative is seeing what the 'boring, ordinary' people see: a pompous jerk who needs cutting down.
