Gekko Kamen

Moonlight Mask (月光仮面 Gekkō Kamen) (a.k.a. The Moonbeam Man) is a fictional superhero that has appeared in Japanese tokusatsu and anime television shows and movies since his TV debut in 1958. The six theatrical films were made (between 1958-1959) in black and white/ToeiScope format. Created by writer Kōhan Kawauchi, Moonlight Mask is best described as Japan’s answer to The Lone Ranger, Batman and Zorro. Moonlight Mask’s popularity resulted in the appearance of several other Japanese superhero characters soon thereafter, including Iron Sharp a.k.a. Space Chief (from Invasion of the Neptune Men (1961)) and the Planet Prince TV series (1958).
