Doctor Strange is Not the Endearing Asshole You’re Looking For

There is a trope that I love, and it involves that dorky, intellectual who no one believes in that has to overcome every obstacle in order to be The Best or The King or Whatever Title The Prologue Laid Out. Throughout his journey, there is only one person who believes in him. Either his mentor, who inevitably dies, or himself after the mentor's death and a couple hard lessons. You see this trope everywhere because I just described the protagonist for The Hero's Journey. Doctor Strange the movie wants to apply this trope to Dr. Stephen Strange, the character, but misses the mark in a couple ways.
