Last week marked something that many didn’t see coming out of the blue. Marvel started a weekly online run of the legendary Toei Spider-Man show, a tokusatsu series that ran in Japan from 1978-1979. Of course, it’s not exactly well-known for its accuracy, and holds more notoriety for weaving tokusatsu standards into the Spider-Man character, whose similarity to Peter Parker begins and ends with the famous red and blue suit.
If you haven’t yet, be sure to watch the embed of the first episode, which ran last week, below. It’s a lot of fun, and if the insanity within gets you goin’, keep checking Marvel’s website for more insane Japanese Spidey action.
