Plot

At an unknown position in space, a planet existed known as Rosetta, home to two coexisting tribes: the Black Stars and Manes. These two tribes were lifelong rivals, transforming Rosetta in to a battleground. Meanwhile, an astronaut from planet Earth became lost in space and eventually arrived on Rosetta. There, the man fell in love with a Mane woman named Rosemary, and the two married. Rosemary then later gave birth to twins, who became separated at age 3 by a huge ethnic conflict between the tribes, ending in Rosetta falling under full Black Star control. Unbeknownst to the family, a Black Star named Smeller had kidnapped the boy and began raising him as his own. During his time on Rosetta, the Earthly man acquired special bracelets which transforms him into a superhero named Megaloman. He attempted to fight against the Black Star but was presumed dead, with his bracelets being passed on to one of his sons. The Black Stars then set their sights on Earth, the planet which Rosemary and her son Takashi had planned on fleeing to. Fleeing to Earth as planned, Rosemary trained her son in martial arts. With this training combined with Takashi's father's Megaloman bracelets, Takashi was entrusted with protecting Earth from the Black Stars, who had then appointed a new commander named Captain Dagger.
