Design[edit | edit source]
When in his Human No. 2 form, he has an Ultraman-like head which is covered by a large spiked helmet. Almost all of his body is red besides small blue and white stripes on his legs. Junjiro also wears silver gloves on both his hands, armor on his chest, a belt and silver anklets.
History[edit | edit source]
After his brother Junichiro's theory of invaders attacking Earth was proven true, Junjiro and his friends Rumiko Hoshiyama and Yasubee Hirai assisted in fending off the invading "Flasher Corps". Eventually, Junichiro was able to destroy the Flasher leader King Flasher, but a new leader was appointed named Grand Flasher. Foolishly dueling the new Flasher overlord, Junichiro was swiftly killed, leaving Junjiro with no option but to step forth as the new hero. Onlooking children transformed Junjiro into the superhero Human No. 2 using devices known as Human-Signs, and he battled Grand Flasher in Junichiro's place. Meanwhile, Junichiro was miraculously transported to the Miracle Zone dimension, which revived and fully healed him, allowing him to return to the front lines. Together, the brothers were able to cause Grand Flasher to retreat and from that point forward did battle with any rampant kaiju deployed by the Flashers. Soon enough, Junichiro and Junjiro were able to confront Grand Flasher once more, this time successfully defeating him and thwarting the Flasher Corps once and for all.
