Series: Moonlight Mask
Moonlight Mask (translated from Gekko Kamen) was Japan's first tokusatsu series from 1958note . It was very popular with kids, but was cancelled due to a kid dying trying to imitate the titular character's stunts. It was later adapted into an anime in the 70s and again in the 90s.Definitely not to be confused with Kekko Kamen (although the latter was named in parody of the former).
