BLOG: Ultra-Act ULTRAMAN (Powered Suit Ver.7.1)
|In 2011, ULTRAMAN, a manga sequel to the 1966 series started serialization. It is written by Eiichi Shimizu and drawn by Tomohiro Shimoguchi (Linebarrels of Iron).
The manga tells the story of Shinjiro Hayata, son of original Ultraman Shin Hayata, who both acquired genes from the ‘giants of light’ and manifested superhuman abilities. To protect the Earth from various threats, powered suits akin to Iron Man were created to maximize the full potential of Shinijiro’s powers. As such, no one grows to a giant warrior in this story.
Currently debating on whether to consider this for a #4000 CATALOGUE entry. But as far as the armor itself is concerned, it looks really good.
