In every conceivable way, Tony Stark's foe in this film is himself. It starts with an enemy born of Stark's chronic dickishness, a spurned fan-turned-supervillain not unlike Buddy Pine-cum-Syndrome in The Incredibles. It continues with a superhero whose egotistical compulsion to unmask his true identity continues to put an ever present bullseye on him and his scant loved ones. But Stark's biggest adversary is his own psyche, an id now fractured by insecurity—indeed, it's wry genesis that the film is essentially a 130-minute psychiatrist's couch confession.
