Psychology of a Hero: TONY STARK & Narcissism

From Cinema Therapy.

How does this genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist overcome his arrogance, ego, guilt, and PTSD? Tony Stark can think his way out of almost any problem, but what happens when he can’t? Or when he can’t protect the people he cares about?

Licensed therapist Jonathan Decker and filmmaker Alan Seawright finish out Tony Stark’s character arc in part 2 of this deep dive into the psychology of Iron Man. They talk about handling guilt, dealing with trauma, and building and repairing relationships. And the absolutely stellar writing in the MCU, and stunning performances from Robert Downey Jr, Tom Holland, and more.
