    www.comicbookmovie.com has a safe-for-work preview and report on the latest trademark-skirting "parody" to come out of the adult industry.

    Supergirl XXX

    I dunno, Alanah Rae looks more like a Power Girl in significant respects.

    These parodies, many of them sf/fantasy based like the TOS and TNG Trek and Avatar knock-offs, seem to be a growing segment of the adult industry. IIRC, the most expensive XXX movie ever made was a take-off on Pirates Of The Carribean. In many respects they seem to be elaborate fan films.

    Too much plot.

    Something to watch on our refractory period then.

    I see it as a way of tapping (;)) into the superhero, sci-fi, cosplay, geek market. Or maybe just catering to it. Porn caters to fetishes, why not these? And wasn't Pirates, which I have never seen, one of the most successful porn films ever? They even sell non porn versions of it on Amazon. Maybe we are looking at a new porn renaissance in which they'll shoot more real movies instead of only twenty minutes of a disembodied dick interviewing a whore before ten minutes of nailing her.

    Well, logically, isn't Supergirl going to grow up to be built just like Power Girl? I mean, how do you do cosmetic surgery on a Kryptonian? Power Girl's physique pretty much has to be natural.

    The Ls of Krypton 2 and the Els of Krypton 1 never appeared to be genetic duplicates.

    I'm curious - has anyone done any, erm, research into how they're able to get away with all these? About 2 years ago these started to show up, and the one common denominator I can make out - title-wise - is they seem to either have a "NOT THE..." prefix or a XXX one. Maybe some lawyer set precedent that they could do these as long as one of those two elements were there. I saw the preview for the Justice League one and they even use the same costumes.

    There's even a couple of Six Million Dollar Man and Bionic Woman ones out there.

    Hey, more power to them! (Although I did start feeling a bit leery when I started to see comic book shops - no, really, they did - stocking them.)

    I have seen the second POTC parody, called Pirates 2 (actually, it's an original story, not a knock off, for what it's worth) - so sue me, I'm 42 - and its production values were actually on par with a number of A-grade films I've seen. They even built a full-size pirate ship in a studio (taking a leaf from POTC) - which of course they had to tear it down right after they finished shooting those scenes so they could shoot a super-huge orgy the next night. But, you know, that's to be expected...

    The big porn studios and publishers have decades of court fights in their DNA; I don't think the possibility of C&Ds are probably intimidating. Parody enjoys rather specific protection under current interpretations of the First Amendment - and that's largely because Jerry Falwell sued Larry Flynt. :lol:

    Yeah, no. They've always been there, since damn near the dawn of the industry.

    As Dennis says, it's protected speech as long as it's presented as a parody. It's no different, legally, from Saturday Night Live doing a sketch about Superman or Star Trek -- they're using the actual copyrighted names, but in the context of something that's clearly a parody, so they're not trying to compete directly with the original by passing their work off as the real thing.

    Many comic shops carry hentei, which is in the same realm as this (ie: porn).

    They just keep it behind the counter.;)

    I'd really rather they just made regular movies and TV shows sexier.

    Also, if she's not going to wear the blue mini, I'm not interested. :mallory:

    Looks too much like porn:p,
    unlike the TNG XXX parody that looked almost like a well made fan film:shifty:
    They should have picked someone more..eh..slender and younger(?) to play "Supergirl". This actress is way too busty for the role.
    Is her chest even real, btw?:confused:;)

    I could really do a Star Trek parody with characters called Kirk, Spock, McCoy on a starship called Enterprise? Or a Terminator parody with John Connor, Sarah Connor, CyberDyne Corporation and the Terminator?

    Well, Saturday Night Live did - and does - that kind of thing all the time.

    I'm sure that if the studios felt someone was actually damaging their property by use of trademarks, etc they would go after them legally on some grounds or another, if nothing else to try to intimidate them. Paramount did shut down a TOS-based live show some years ago on the grounds that it represented "appropriation rather than parody."

    Indeed so. SNL has done some famous and beloved Trek sketches, notably "The Last Voyage of the Starship Enterprise" with John Belushi as Kirk, Chevy Chase as Spock, and Dan Aykroyd as McCoy (which you can watch at Hulu). When Shatner guest-starred in the '80s, they did a great sketch called "The Restaurant Enterprise," with Shatner as Kirk, Kevin Nealon as Spock, and Dana Carvey as Khan, the restaurant inspector (and with the guy who played Sulu in "Last Voyage" reprising the role). They also did a T. J. Hooker sketch in the same episode.

    The Supergirl one doesn't look as impressive as either the Batman parody or the really impressive Dark Knight parody.

    I know about the laws regarding parodies... but it still seems pretty warped that Disney can sue and shut down a little Mom & Pop eatery calling itself the Magic Kingdom, while you can have a movie like this be perfectly legal and make money for the producer based off the works done by another company.
