Is Michael a Mary Sue? Why or why not?

Looking at wikipedia, "A Mary Sue is an idealized and seemingly perfect fictional character". Within her first two episodes she gets her captain killed, ignites a Klingon/Federation war and gets court-martialed. If Burnham's a Mary Sue then the writers have some really weird ideas about perfectness...

Right the series started out that way didn't it. She acted justified about her decision to mutiny afterwards. Would she have handled that situation differently if she had to do it all over again?
