Is it hot in that helmet?

Light Speed Esper is a Japanese Live Action superhero TV series from the 1970's. It is about a boy named Ikaru who is chosen to wear a supersuit so he can battle alien invaders.

Originally created to be Toshiba's mascot, it also had a manga by Leiji Matsumoto.

Fairly obscure, the series was broadcast in many countries in the 70s, including in Latin America.

  • Mission Control: The scientists who created the suit monitor it while in action and give advice when needed.
