And as the end of the Avengers not-so-subtly eludes to, more is coming. The Avengers kicking alien arse was a warning signal to be heard throughout the cosmos. What that also tells Tony is that there are forces out there beyond his ability and they are only going to come more frequently for him and those close to him I would guess it takes some of the wind out of his stride when he realizes he is not the only big kid on the block and that he is a target for most of the others as well.
And if Mandarin is truly magical, it's only going to get worse for Tony.
