There’s not too many comic fans who haven’t stumbled upon Japanese Spider-man at one time or another – even if it’s just a found trailer like the one at the bottom of the page (if you haven’t seen him before you NEED to watch this.)

So the idea of Japansese Spider-man being in the Marvel comics is awesome – and he seems to have brought his Power Rangers-esque Zords and craziness with him.

“In the 12th issue of The Amazing Spider-Man, the fourth part of the Spider-Verse event, Peter Parker has summoned another member of the Spider-Army, the Spider-Man of Earth-51788!

“His name is Takuya Yamashiro, a Spider-Man who got his powers from Garia, the surviving warrior of Planet Spider. He is the star of the 70’s Japanese Spider-Man TV series produced by Toei, the same company that made Super Sentai (Power Rangers)! He previously made a cameo in one issue of the Spider-Verse event, making this his official appearance in this multiverse hopping Spider-Man event.

“But sadly, his robot, the Leopardon was easily defeated by a member of the Inheritors, a clan who feast on the life-essence of the Spider-People. Even if that’s the case, he finds new allies with his fellow Japanese Spider-Men, namely Mangaverse Spider-Man and Manga Spider-Man. Before you start ranting or complaining about it, this clan also defeated some of Spider-Man’s more powerful incarnations such as the Captain Universe Spider-Man. Let that sink in. But that’s not the only surprise this issue have!”

The Amazing Spider-Man #12 is out now

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
