Curious. Didn't the redemption story start with the very first IRON MAN when Tony Stark decided that he wasn't going to create weapons of mass destruction for sale to the highest bidder? Everything else kind of flowed from that, no?

Sure. There are many "redemptions" going on with this character. I was referring to the alcohol thing because it was the topic of the thread.
For me, IRON MAN 2 shows him at his most ego-driven, alcoholic and irresponsible and later Tony kinda acknowledging these faults.
His almost sacrifice in AVENGERS, and the shell-shocked, insecure Tony we see in IRON MAN 3 are steps in his voyage to recovery, where we finally see him getting his priorities straight and putting his ego aside and giving real value to his relationships (especially Pepper).
This "new" Tony is the one who was able to become a happy family man and then sacrifice all that for the rest of humanity. It's a great arc, and the reason RDJ gets the most clapping and cheering at ENDGAME I think.
