      Xander Crews' superhero persona of Awesome X appears to be a composite parody of several famous comic book superheroes, mainly DC Comics' Batman and Marvel Comics' Iron Man. His origin as billionaire playboy Xander Crews whose parents were tragically killed when he was young is an obvious reference to billionaire playboy Bruce Wayne and how he became the Batman. Also, Xander's robotic suit, complete with rocket-powered boots, which he dons as Awesome X, is a reference to the battle armor suit worn by Tony Stark as Iron Man.
