But Who *Is* Gekko Kamen?


I recently rediscovered my link to this character chart for GEKKO KAMEN ("Moonlight Mask"), one of the earliest truly successful Japanese TV superheroes. He was so successful, in fact, that he spawned a series of movies from Toei that were released simultaneous with the show. Gekko Kamen is not quite as famous today as Ultraman or Kamen Rider, but he was one of the pioneers that paved the way for them.
