ULTRAMAN, Japan’s most celebrated superhero, appeared on U.S. television as a half-hour live-action series from 1966 until 1981, and attracted millions of viewers who became life-long admirers. For the past 50 years, and even today, the ULTRAMAN TV series has been thrilling fans throughout Asia.
Ultraman is an alien life force from distant Nebula M78 who melded with human Shin Hayata until he was needed to defeat giant monsters and alien invaders hell-bent on destroying Earth. In those times of extreme danger, Ultraman would appear and could extend his body 100 meters when necessary.
