Meet Braulio Ledezma.
Mr. Ledezma lives in Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz, where he’s an employee at Pemex, Mexico’s state-owned oil company. Es guapo, ¿no?
Does his face look oddly yet famously familiar to you?
Uh, that might be because he looks just like Tony Stark from the “Iron Man” and Marvel Universe movies. Don’t see the resemblance? Close your eyes, rub them and open them again. Still don’t see it? Go get your eyes checked by a professional.
The 46-year-old first noticed he looked like the comic book character back in 2008.

Ledezma was chillaxin’ in Cancún when his primos came back from watching the the first “Iron Man.” They immediately noticed that their cousin looks igualito a Tony Stark.
The would-be Iron Man’s rise to fame came after he was turned into a viral meme.
A Pemex coworker took a picture of him on the sly and sent it to her daughter. The daughter’s boyfriend saw it, and turned the photo into a meme that went viral.
Ledezma cashed in on the attention and became an Iron Man impersonator, suit and all.
He’s appeared at several cosplay and comic conventions in Mexico, Peru, Colombia, Chile, Bolivia and Venezuela.
But wait, there’s more! He’s also got a famous voice twin!
As if it weren’t enough that he looks just like Tony Stark, Ledezma is also a singer/songwriter who sounds an awful lot like ranchera icon Alejandro Fernandez.
So what do you think?
