The series has a lot of similarities in regards to the Spider-Man iconography, in addition to major plot differences. The hero in the series is the motorcycle racer, Takuya Yamashiro. He witnesses the crash of a UFO called the Marveller.

Subsequently, he ends up gaining the spider powers from the last survivor of the UFO. He also gets a bracelet that can transform the Marveller into a giant robot. This robot then helps Spider-Man defend the Earth from a villain. This villain is Professor Monster, who wants to destroy the Earth with his evil army.
