    Marvel Comics Group helped a Japanese television production company (Toei) develop a show based on Spider-Man. It featured Spider-Man driving a car and using a giant robot to fight giant monsters. I always wondered what the meeting for that was like…"Okay, have some questions about Spider-Man character.""great, ask away""What does his giant robot look like?""Yer what?"After Spider-Man succeeded, Toei and Marvel took the giant robot fighting giant monster idea, folded them onto another of their shows (a new series of shows that started at Go-Ranger and JAKQ) and created what became known as the "Super Sentai" series, the longest-running regular series in japanese children's entertainment – 33 years and still going strong. It's the series that becomes Power Rangers here in the USA, but that show can't hold a CANDLE to the originals.The Metal Heros, the Kamen Riders, The Ultraman series, the new Rescue Hero and Sheisin (Star God) series…Japan's got us beat hands down when it comes to superheroes on TV.
