Description: The alien beta capsule transforms a man into the most powerful humanoid on earth, Ultraman! Earth's atmosphere places limitations on the length Ultraman can be giant sized to only a few minutes, depending on how much energy he uses. His coup de grâce maneuver is the Specium ray, forewarned by the crossing of his wrists. This is usually more than enough of a blast to defeat monsters that can't be submitted within the time allotted by his superior martial arts skills.

Description: Japan appears to be a nexus of alien interests; if it wasn't for Ultraman defending humanity from hordes of invading kaiju, Earth civilization would have long ago fallen to foreign powers. Should a foe be more than one Ultra can handle, they are sure to call in reinforcements. Cheaters.
