From Comics Alliance:

Following on the heels of their widely viewed (SFW) Batman
XXX
” porn parody trailer
, Vivid Entertainment announced
today that they are launching an entire superhero-themed porn imprint
called Vivid-Superhero, which will parody other famous
superhero characters including Marvel and DC A-listers like Superman,
Spider-Man, Wonder Woman, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, and even the
non-Big Two hero Green Hornet.

From the press release:

“The parodies under this new imprint will pay tribute to the world’s
most popular comic heroes,” said Steven Hirsch,
Founder/Co-chairman of Vivid. “[Lead Director] Axel [Braun] already
started pre-production on a parody of Superman, which
will be followed by those of The Green Hornet,
Spider-Man
, Wonder Woman, Captain
America
, Thor, and
The Incredible Hulk
. We made the decision to create the imprint
after working with Axel on “Batman XXX: A Porn Parody“,
an Axel Braun Productions movie to be distributed by
Vivid. Axel truly did an amazing job with it, and we agreed that
together we could mine the really rich treasure of superheroes and have a
lot of fun doing it.”

From me — holy shit I can’t believe it’s taken until 2010 for someone to make superhero/comics porn on a regular basis. I know Japan’s years ahead of us in porn for nerds, but they were doing this shit back in the ’80s. Only now did someone in the American porn industry realze that the Venn diagram of “nerds who enjoy comics” and “lonely men who enjoy pornography” overlaps a great deal? For fuck’s sake, there’s currently a character called Batwoman who is a lesbian — and that’s at DC, not in a porn movie! What other clues did you pornographers need? Madness!
