I agree with that. The "personal demons" aspect can be found more or less in every superhero, or hero in general when we talk about these movies. They all fight against their villains, but at the same time they fight against themselves, and that's what makes them interesting. If the greatest and most memorable villain of a hero is himself, we would've never gotten any great villains in any story.
