For a recap here's Part 1 and 2. Now to talk about our heroes starting from the suits to the people who filled them out. As most of you know Jetman was heavily inspired by Science Ninja team Gatchaman. However they also seem to have taken a note from pre flashpoint Superman with the underwear outline on the males suits. Which while it works for Supes it just doesn't work for the male Jetmen. While the red against blue helps to balance out Superman's colors because it's their color against white it makes the briefs pop out more and make it more obvious and distracting. The girls however get skirts and it works better for them. The helmets help show what their birds are and help sell the Gatchaman homage.
|This finally leads me to Ryu, our Red Ranger and resident asshole.|
|YES THEY DO!!!|
She did also set the ground for future female mentors in the franchise ( all two of them!) But she still does have her problems from my perspective. I already covered how she handled Ryu and Gai slugging it out but whenever Ryu was acting against the teams welfare she just seemed to tune out mostly just wagging her finger and shaking her head at best. She seems to share similar problems with Captain Mitchell from Lightspeed Rescue but like Mitchell she did get better after her introduction. Her highlights include training Raita, Kaori and Ako in martial arts, assisting the team with building and updating their arsenal, standing up to an asshole General who was trying to replace the Jetmen with his Vr trained rookies, and piloting the Jet Garuda to get revenge on a monster that took her body for a joyride. All in all a pretty decent mentor, not as bad as some I could name but not as good as others either, like at least in the top fifteen for me.
Yeah this is gonna hurt, ALOT!!!
