Well thats defenately not the Spider-man we grew up with...

There is really no diferance between Spider-man and Power Rangers....If you download the video you will see Spider-man summoning Megazord...

Actually.

Spider man and "power rangers" are both part of a genre of japanese live-action shows called "Sentai"

From what I was told in another discussion that spiderman show came before the first official Sentai series. Though it did give some of the "standards"(giant robot) for that kind of shows you need to realize that Sentai is NOT a gender but a certain show(though it has become some kind of gender but that is just wrong).

Super Sentai is a subgenre of the "henshin hero" (transforming hero) genre of Japanese science fiction. This genre started with 1975's Himitsu Sentai Goranger (Secret Task Force Five Rangers) and involved five heroes with different colored costumes fighting a monster-of-the-week. Since 1979's Bttle Fever J, the series has also been associated with giant robots, usually formed from different components piloted by the sentai heroes.

First official Sentai = 1979
That spiderman show = 1978
