History: The Ultramen are a group of beings, mostly extra-terrestrials who have merged their life forces with humans, who defend Earth and our galaxy against any who threaten it. While listed here as a group, they don't normally work as a team, though there are smaller sub-groups who operate together, and occasionally larger combinations have fought together against a really dangerous threat.
Comments: Created by Eiji Tsuburaya. Ultraman was the first tokusatsu hero who grew in size to face opponents, and narrowly missed out being the first tokusatsu hero on television
There is an excellent site dedicated to all things Ultraman called Absolute Ultraman!. If these characters interest you, I recommend you check it out.
CLARIFICATIONS: Not to be confused with
Ultragallo, a Super Rooster
Ultra-Man, British supervillain
Ultramind, British Small Press heroine
Ultramind, the above's daughter
