Exactly. Just because all of my buddies showed up to help me move, doesn't mean I call them all back together to help out when my dog escapes from the back yard and I have to track him down. Some issues are more personal and you tend to deal with them on your own. Add in that Tony has been portrayed as a guy who has issues with admitting he needs help, and it makes perfect sense that the would go at it alone even after the big Avengers Team-Up.
