How to use the word Antihero?

In literature, theater, and film, an antihero is a central character who is not very admirable: weak, lazy, incompetent, or mean-spirited.

However, antiheroes are rarely actually evil, and you should not use this word as a synonym for “villain" if you want to get a good grade on your English lit paper.
