Spider-Man (スパイダーマン, Supaidāman) is a Japanese tokusatsu series produced by Toei Company in 1978, based on Marvel’s superhero of the same name. This version of the famous web-slinging hero was part of a deal that Marvel made with Toei, namely that for a four-year period, Toei could use Marvel’s characters in any way they saw fit. So in 1978, a Spider-Man tokusatsu series was produced for Japanese television by Toei Company Ltd. While Spider-Man’s costume was certainly based on the original, the storyline had nothing to do with the Marvel character.
