Rare Golden Bat manga card by Osamu Tezuka, 1970s.

Golden Bat or Ōgon Bat, originally created by Takeo Nagamatsu in 1931, is Japan’s earliest superhero.

When he first appeared in a kamishibai he wore 17th century European-style clothing, had blond hair on top of his skull head, and carried a weapon resembling a rapier.

He was later turned into a manga by the amazing Osamu Tezuka, as seen here.
