Why does Tony Stark have PTSD symptoms in Iron Man 3, when he came through previous adventures seemingly unscathed?

Licensed therapist Jonathan Decker and filmmaker Alan Seawright break down what causes Tony's breakdown in Iron Man 3, how he gets through it, and how that relates to real life trauma or anxiety. They also talk about Tony's narcissism, problem-solving, and relationships. And how Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man launched the Marvel franchise and changed the landscape of modern movies.
