Heads-up! The emissary of hell has finally made his debut along with his giant robot, Leopardon in the pages of Spider-Verse: Amazing Spider-Man # 12! Time to sing that Japanese Spider-Man intro! YEAH YEAH YEAHHH WOW!
For those who still haven't got any idea who this spider-man is, he was originally created for Japanese television by Toei in 1978. Takuya Yamashiro was a dirtbike racer who was granted incredible power by Garia, an alien from Planet Spider, and tasked with stopping the evil plans of Professor Monster and his nefarious Iron Cross Army. In addition to strength, agility, webs and the occasional machine gun, Takuya, had a bull-themed car called the GP-7 and a giant spaceship that transforms into a lion-themed robot called Leopardon. It introduced the idea of a hero piloting a giant robot to the tokusatsu genre, paving the way for the shows to become S, and thus giving us Power Rangers.
