Japanese Spider-Man seen here before, but this time he seems to be protected by a bandito type sporting a machine-gun guitar (but sadly, not one of these).

I wish I grew up in Japan. Even Peter Parker gets a giant transforming robot.

This made my night.

I love that Japanese Spiderman's superpower is the ability to crawl on hills of dirt. Now THAT makes sense.

Strangely this makes me realize how well thought out and evolved most Silver-Age and forward comic superheroes are. Never thought I'd say that.

Heh. That's some compact, efficient storytelling!

This goes to further my theory that, at various times throughout history, the entire populace of Japan has been on some form of drug.

Metamorpho did the guitar gun first, and better.
