History

Mirrorman

Generation I

A mysterious man in black, who was really an Invader in disguise, sneaks into the SGM headquarters to steal photos of another Invader and of their spaceship they were taken by Kyotaro Kagami. Kyoraro chases after the Invader to the city where the police and the SGM were at to deal with a giant spaceship in the sky. The Invader tries to get the attention of the space ships, but the police took chase. When the police had the Invader cornered, the spaceship helps him out by shooting down a ray that covered only him and turn him into the monster Iron. Iron showed his strange alien powers, and easily began destroying the town he was in. When Kyotaro arrived, he saw the SGM are in trouble. Before he could help out, he hears his father’s voice, telling him to transform into Mirrorman. Using the mirror-pendant he received from the 2nd dimension and a car’s side mirror, Kyotaro transformed into Mirrorman for the first time. After a short battle, he quickly finished off Iron by using his Mirror Shot attack on Iron's chest killing him instantly, Iron then began to bleed a sickly green blood and then went up in viridescent flames.

Generation II

A second Iron, known as Iron II, was sent by the Invaders into the ocean. As he was swimming he was spotted by a cargo ship that he quickly destroyed. The next day Iron II attacked the Ryugamine Land to Space Missile Base while the Invaders trapped Kyotaro in some ruins. A pair of 6-tube missile launchers failed to hold him off as he easily rampaged through the base. Before long Kyotaro managed to escape the ruins as Mirrorman and attacked Iron II out of nowhere. The hero repeatedly assaulted the Invader, gaining the upper hand even after Iron II managed to get on top of him briefly. After Mirrorman used a Mirror Knife to the back, Iron II turned around and fell to the ground dead. Revenge of the Steel Dragon Iron
