The Iron Cross Army led by Professor Monster (Mitsuo Ando) wants to take over the world with their monsters called Machine Bem that can grow or shrink to any size - which is why they have to assassinate professor Yamashiro, one of the few men who are able to defeat them. The assassination is a success, plus the professor's son Takuya (Shinji Toudou) seems to perish falling into a bottomless pit ... however, the pit actually has a bottom, where Takuya meets Garia, who turns him into the superhero Spider-Man, a man with spider senses and all kinds of fancy gadgets. And to help Spider-Man protect the earth from the Iron Cross Army, a giant robot called Marveller returns to earth after 400 years of absence, and Marveller can turn into a, well, giant robot called Leopardon - if that means anything to your.

From now on it's Spidey against the footsoldiers of the Iron Cross Army in man on man battles and against the giant Machine Bem in his Marveller/Leopardon robot - and of course he wins in the end.

 

Please note, despite the many deviations from the original American Spider-Man this was a licensed adaptation of the Marvel Comics character in an attempt of the company to get a foothold in Japan, a large comic market that's almost entirely self-sufficient though - that's why Spider-Man is given the typical Japanese treatment in a story full of giant monsters and giant transforming robots ... and actually this series will appeal more to Japanese sci-fi fans than to Spider-Man adepts. Actually, it's pretty safe to say, if you like Japanese giant (rubber) monsters and robot, you will find this one at least amusing, if you like Spider-Man you might still like it, and if you find all of this just stupid, you probably shouldn't watch it in the first place.

I'm rather fond of the series, actually.
