Just a sampling of some of the great heroes from Japan in the 1970s.  How I wish I had been able to see them in their heyday.  I loved the action of the Batman show, but after that most of the US superhero shows were rather anemic.

Still, at least they were slightly better than many of the dark and gritty CG fests that populate movies these days.
Yeah, OK, these last two pictures are from one of the Kamen Rider movies, and there have been so many recently I can't keep up.  You know me, I love team ups and all three of these pictures represent heroes that had never met before.
Except for Zone Fighter.  I'm still at a loss as to why no one has subtitled that show.  You'd think it was a natural.
