This is a US version of the original Kamen Rider series, it is different in many respects though as the organization SHOCKER is much more widespread with offices in all corners of the Earth and SHOCKER has 20 Elites with 21 supposed to have been Kamen Rider. Among the Elites are faces of orgnanizations that in the Kamen Rider universe did not appear until the various sequels such as Marshal Armor, Dr. G, Apollo Geist, and Mr. Titan. Another difference is at the moment the Kamen Rider is unscarfed.
The Kamen Rider is Edward Halifax, a genius college student who is forcibily taken by SHOCKERs lieutanent mutant Spider and freed after his surgery by a Dr. Ezekiel Cohan along with his girlfriend Michelle Baker. Dr. Cohan is killed but Edward and Michelle so far have survived SHOCKERs attempts to rid the earth of them.
