Ever wanted to see Spider-Man wielding a World War II era machine gun? Then look no further. Thanks to the Japanese Spider-Man TV show, we got to see just that in the TV movie that took place between episodes 10 ("To the Flaming Hell: See the Tears of the Snake Woman") and 11 ("Professor Monster's Ultra Poisoning") of the show.

The show was always pretty mental, with strong Power Rangers vibes. The only real allusion to Spider-Man is his costume since Peter parker isn't even involved (the hero is actually motorbike racer Takuya Yamashiro) and Spidey battles the evil Iron Cross Army using guns and a giant robot. Standard sort of 70s Japanese TV fare, really.

It's nothing like Spider-Man but it's a whole heap of fun all the same. And the theme tune is amazing...
