PLOT SUMMARY

Original Run: 1990 RELEASED DIRECTLY TO LD AND HOME VIDEO

PLEASE BE ADVISED:
THIS RELEASE IS NOT UP TO HIGH DEFINITION STANDARD. DUE TO THE MASTER REEL BEING LOST, THE STUDIO REMIX THE VHS AND LD SOURCES AND UPSCALE THEM INTO BLU-RAY DISC. THE RESULT IS FAR FROM YOUR STANDARD HD QUALITY, BUT DEFINITELY AN UPGRADE FROM ALL PREVIOUS HOME VIDEO RELEASE.


Jack Shindo and Stanley Haggard are members of the first manned expedition to Mars, and on the red planet find a giant sluglike monster, Gudis. Suddenly the alien giant, Ultraman Great, arrives and fights Gudis, but is knocked down for a period. Shindo is pinned by a rockslide and Haggard tries to escape in their ship but it is blown up by Gudis. It is then that Ultraman Great gets up, and when he is on the verge of victory Gudis metamorphoses into a virus and travels to Earth, where it plans on corrupting all life, mutating other creatures into monsters and awakening existing ones. Needing a human host to survive on Earth, Ultraman Great joins with Jack, allowing him to become the colossal alien when all seems lost. He joins the Universal Multipurpose Agency, or UMA, in order to help them battle the monsters.

Halfway through the series Super Gudis reappears, more powerful than before. It imprisons Ultraman Great, but Jack distracts it by ultimately showing it the futility of its mission. Even if it does manage to corrupt all life, eventually there will be nothing else to corrupt. The distraction allows Ultraman Great to break free and destroy Super Gudis once and for all. For the rest of the series the environmental themes are stronger and the monsters usually arise from human pollution.


In the series finale, a doomsday scenario begins with the appearance of two powerful monsters are Kilazee and Kodalar, which tries to wipe out the human race for abusing it. Ultraman Great is defeated by Kodalar, but Jack survives. Ultimately the humans use an ancient disc to destroy Kodalar by reflecting its own power at it, Ultraman Great defeats Kilazee and carries it into space, separating Jack from him and restoring him on Earth as a normal human. The victory is seen as another chance for the human race.
