With great podcasting, comes great responsibility. Dr. Sam and Dr. Fran take a detour from discussing a single show or movie and instead attempt to tackle an entire universe. Join us as we discuss the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), including the personality traits and potential diagnoses for Tony Stark (Iron Man) and Peter Parker (Spider-Man). Iron Man is a self-declared narcissist, but is he actually? Peter Parker on the other hand is a shy adolescent. But that’s only when he’s not wearing a mask!
This week, the doctors are joined by their first guest—Dr. Andres De Los Reyes, a professor of psychology at the University of Maryland at College Park and the editor of the Journal of Clinical Child & Adolescent Psychology. Dr. De Los Reyes discusses mentorship through the lens of Tony Stark and Peter Parker’s relationship. He also uses the MCU to discuss navigating conflicts and compromises.
Finally, listen to discover which Marvel characters and movies are our favorites. We can’t tackle the full MCU in one week’s session so we may have to use an Infinity Stone to time or space travel and cover additional MCU movies in the future… or past?!
