The Japanese TV Shows have a tendency to dwell over to the strangely fantastic. One show featured Takuya Yamashiro, a motorcycle racer who found a UFO that gave him Spider powers. He later fights the Blem using his mechanized super robot called the Leopardan.
The Turkish Spiderman was a bit of an oddball. He was a part of a Turkish movie which featured Spiderman as the villain who is opposed by a Turkish Version of Captain America and a Mexican wrestler. Don’t ask!!!
