Although Ultraman is the first series to feature an Ultraman character, it is the second installment in the Ultra Series, following Ultra Q. This is signified in the Japanese show opening by the Ultra Q logo exploding into the Ultraman logo. Ultraman and its titular hero became a major pop culture phenomena in Japan, spawning dozens of sequels, spin-offs, rip-offs, imitators, parodies and tributes.[2][3] Ultraman went on to generate $7.4 billion in merchandising revenue from 1966 to 1987[4] (equivalent to more than $17 billion adjusted for inflation) and become the world’s third top-selling licensed character by the 1980s (largely due to his popularity in Asia)
