The Toei Company in Japan acquired the rights to create a Spider-Man TV show in the 1970s. At the time in Japan shows with big monsters like Godzilla were the rage. The Toei Spider-Man is thus a merged version between Spider-Man and the Power Rangers.
The Toei Spider-Man calls himself the "Emissary of Hell" and fights giant monsters to defend Japan. His giant robot Leopardon has a huge sword that can pretty much kill anything in one swipe.
He also strikes some really cool karate Spider-Man poses as he defeats evil.
One of the Spider-Men recruited to aid the Spider-Army against the Inheritors is Takuya Yamashiro. He and the other Japanese Spider-Man arrive to help just in the nick of time. The father of the Inheritors Solus had just absorbed all of the power of the Cosmic Spider-Man and was preparing to wipe them out. Takuya Yamashiro arrived and battled Solus in his robot Leopardon. The Spider army managed to escape including Yamashiro but at a stiff cost, Leopardon was destroyed.
Spider-Man 2099 and Lady Spider find the wreckage of Leopardon and debate whether they can repair the massive robot.
Power Rangers Connections:
If the show looks like Power Rangers that is because Toei went on to make the Power Rangers after Spider-Man.
Toei Spider-Man's powers seem to be similar to that of the main 616 Spider-Man however he does use gadgets, guns and also has a giant robot called Leopardon.
