Axel Braun has become a master of knowing what true comic fanboys want and what fans of the movie franchise are looking for when it comes to a porn parody. And he once again shows off those talents and perhaps a little bit of his own fanboy leanings with Iron Man XXX: An Axel Braun Parody.
Braun also teams up once again with Dale DaBone for this newest addition to the VividXXXSuperheroes library. (The pair had major success with Elvis XXX: A Porn Parody and Batman XXX: A Porn Parody.)
In the lead role of Iron Man/Tony Stark, DaBone really pulls off the natural arrogance of Stark, which adds to the believability of his alter ego. Even during the sex scenes, he doesn’t seem to break out of character, walking that fine line between smarmy scum bucket and charming entrepreneur/philanthropist.
His nemesis in this go-around is The Mandarin, portrayed by Derrick Pierce. It’s here, in the portrayal of The Mandarin, that Braun’s love of the comics’ canon as source material really comes through. Many fans of the Iron Man comics franchise were more than a little disappointed with mainstream’s treatment of the villain, and other media outlets have even made note of Braun’s faithfulness, right down to the bad guy’s rings, which give him his power and ability to control others. That control, in the parody, includes making Pepper Potts (Lexi Belle) swallow his cock in the middle of a party without question.
But Braun even pays homage to the way Marvel Studios have brought the comics to the big screen, and pokes a little fun at their calling card of having some little fun snippet after the end credits. In the case of the parody, it turns out to be a bonus sex scene with Nick Fury and Mei Ling (Lexington Steele and Shazia Sahari).
As for the sex, it’s pretty standard fare—nothing too rough or outrageous—and that’s a big selling point. These parodies are meant to attract the fans of the mainstream movies and the comics, as well as couples. Anything too out of the ordinary would drive them away. But don’t for a moment think that they are mundane sex scenes: they are hot, steamy and sexy. There’s a good mix between guy/girl, girl/girl and threesomes, so there’s something for most everyone.
