J.A.K.Q. Dengekitai (ジャッカー電撃隊 Jakkā Dengekitai?, lit. J.A.K.Q. Blitzkrieg Squad) is the second Super Sentai series. It aired from April 9, 1977 to December 24, 1977. It was created by Shotaro Ishinomori, and ran for thirty-five episodes. The title given to this series for international distribution by Toei is The Jackers.[1]

Plot[edit]

Iron Claw is the leader of a global criminal empire known simply as "Crime". With a network of wealthy and influential sympathizers and employing an army of faceless, leather-masked thugs and cyborg assassins, Crime seeks to become the most powerful mafia organization in the world.

To combat this threat, ISSIS, the International Science Special-Investigation Squad, is formed. ISSIS organizes its forces around the world to battle Crime, including Tokyo, Japan. Tokyo's ISSIS branch commander, Daisuke Kujirai, proposes a radical experiment to aid his forces in Japan. Taking the codename "Joker", he recruits four young test subjects to undergo his cyborg enhancement project – multi-talented athlete and Olympic Gold medalist Goro Sakurai, disgraced boxing champion Ryu Higashi, critically injured policewoman Karen Mizuki and clinically dead and cryogenically sustained oceanographer Bunta Daichi. Surgically altered and given various bionic enhancements and energy manipulation powers, the four youths begin their mission to destroy Crime as the crime-busting quartet code-named J.A.K.Q. Dengekitai. Later on, Joker leaves and Sokichi Banba, a master of disguise and a cyborg, becomes their new boss, as Big One.

Characters[edit]

ISSIS[edit]

ISSIS, (the International Science Special-Investigation Squad (国際科学特捜隊 Kokusai Kagaku Tokusō Tai?)), was formed to combat the international threat of Crime across the globe. The Tokyo ISSIS branch was commanded by Kujirai Daisuke (codenamed Joker), a brilliant bionics specialist and engineer. It was he who initiated the J.A.K.Q. project and recruited the various team members. He was a married man and is known to have had a young daughter. He was later tasked to head ISSIS’ advanced engineering branch, and was replaced by the flamboyant Banba Soukichi (Big One).

ISSIS’s Tokyo headquarters is located in a towering skyscraper in the heart of Shinjuku. ISSIS utilizes its own army of blue uniformed military troops to assist J.A.K.Q. when needed. Only a handful of ISSIS agents are identified, among them Agent 7 (Hayashi Keiko), Agent 8 (Yamamoto Junko), Agent 9 (Iijima Yoshiko), and Agent 10, who all assisted J.A.K.Q. at various times. Another notable member of ISSIS is Hime Tamasaburou, a somewhat dimwitted and clumsy low level agent who masquerades as a ramen takeout cook and carrier. Unfortunately, he gets in the way more than he helps out.

Lastly ISSIS Tokyo’s mascot was a talking hamster which Kujirai kept as a pet. It was enhanced using bionic technology.

J.A.K.Q.[edit]

J.A.K.Q. (pronounced "Jacker") is the codename for ISSIS’s secret "Blitzkrieg Squad" which was set up to combat the cyborg assassins of Crime. The J.A.K.Q. project was the brainchild of Kujirai Daisuke, a brilliant engineer and bionics specialist who was the Tokyo ISSIS branch commander.

When called upon to enter battle, each member would enter an Enhancing Capsule, an external chamber which sprayed each member with particles that would transform into their respective costumes.

  • Goro Sakurai (桜井 五郎 Sakurai Gorō?)/Spade Ace (スペードエース Supēdo Ēsu?): A Japanese pentathlon athlete and Olympic Gold Medalist. In addition to being a champion in Karate, Archery, and Judo, he was also a skilled equestrian and an all-around top athlete. He originally turned down Joker’s offer to join J.A.K.Q., but later had a change of heart when he was saved by Karen Mizuki. He had a romantic involvement with her towards the end of the series. His bionic enhancements allowed him to manipulate Atomic Energy in a wide variety of ways. Using these energies, Sakurai was able to see through walls and other barriers using his x-ray vision (Chu Seishi [Neutron] Scope) and to move at super speed by activating his "Kosouku [Acceleration] Switch". Sakurai was also able to hear sounds at a distance at superhuman levels using his "Enkaku Shuon Souchi [Ultra Sound Device]". As Spade Ace, he wielded a number of specially designed weapons, chief among which was his "Spade Arts" power bow. With the Spade Arts, Sakurai is able to shoot "atomic charged" arrows which can puncture and bore through most substances. The Spade Arts bow can also be converted into a whip which can bind an opponent. Sakurai is a born leader and uses his abilities to seek out the weak points of his enemies. His atomic based powers also give him incredible power when kicking and striking his opponents. He appeared in Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger vs. Super Sentai along with the 24 Red Rangers, introduced to help inspire the Gaoranger team. Spade Ace is so far the only Red Ranger of the Super Sentai series who stepped aside as field leader of his team.
  • Ryu Higashi (東 竜 Higashi Ryū?)/Dia Jack (ダイヤジャック Daiya Jakku?): A former Welterweight Boxing Champion of Japan. He was falsely accused of murder by greedy boxing promoters in Las Vegas when he refused to rig a Championship fight. He was intercepted by Joker when he was being extradited to Japan for prosecution. Joker offered him the choice of working for ISSIS as part of J.A.K.Q. or serving his prison sentence. Higashi reluctantly accepted Joker’s offer albeit with reservations. His bionic enhancements allowed him to manipulate electric currents. From his right second finger, he was able to pull out his "Eleki Cutter" (Electric Cutter) which he can use to cut through dense objects. From his left ring finger, he is able to pull out his "Dia Laser" which can fire a laser beam that can shear through most materials. As Dia Jack, Higashi wields the powerful "Dia Sword" which he can imbue his electrical powers to strike the enemy with deadly effect. The sword can slash and cut through solid steel and other dense metals. It can also be used to focus and fire electrical bolts of energy. Higashi is a rough and gruff individual who is at times very head-strong. A bit of a loner, he does tend to prefer working alone. He continues to keep in touch with his former boxing partners. Higashi loves jazz music and fast cars.
  • Karen Mizuki (カレン水木?)/Heart Queen (ハートクイン Hāto Kuin?): A half Japanese-Caucasian Japanese Police detective. She was assigned to investigating illegal narcotics trafficking routes into Japan. During one of her investigations, she uncovered that Crime controlled a majority of these routes and decided to assist ISSIS in destroying these routes. Crime attempted to kill Karen by arranging a fatal car accident. Miraculously, Karen survived the accident, but lost her right arm. Her father, a fellow police officer, was also killed in the crash. Enraged and seeking revenge, Karen willingly accepted Joker’s offer to undergo his bionic process and join J.A.K.Q. She fell in love with Gorou towards the end of the series. Her bionic enhancements allowed her to control magnetism. Her magnetic based powers, which she dubbed her "Heart Cute Jiki Power" (Heart Cute Magnet Power), allowed her to attract and repel metallic objects at will. She often used her powers to literally stop bullets in mid-air. Her powers can be further augmented by using her Q-shaped "Heart Cute" weapon. Using the Heart Cute, Karen is able to send out waves of magnetic energy that can bowl over opponents or force them into erratic behaviors (which she gleefully enjoys and asks afterwards "Do you want another?" (もう一つ、いかがですか "Mō hitotsu, ikaga desu ka?"?)). The Heart Cute can also be used as a blunt impact weapon which she uses to strike opponents. From her right index finger, she is able to pull out her "Magnetic Counter" which can send out a magnetic detection pulse which she can then use to pinpoint and identify objects (both metal and organic) in a way similar to radar. Karen is a skilled martial artist, and is proficient in a number of fighting methods. For a time, she was part of the Kono Karate School where she befriended Kono Natsuko (Shihomi Etsuko) who was also a skilled martial artist. Karen had a flair for fashion and often sported tight red leather ‘hot pants’ and red long boots.
  • Bunta Daichi (大地 文太 Daichi Bunta?)/Clover King (クローバーキング Kurōbā Kingu?): An oceanographer who died of oxygen deprivation in a freaky submarine accident. Years earlier his beloved younger sister Nami died in an airplane crash. Daichi’s body was cryogenically sustained in a medical facility for research until Joker found him. Using bionic technology, Joker was able to revive Daichi as a cyborg. His bionic enhancements allowed him to manipulate gravitational forces. By increasing his body weight and density, Daichi is able gain superhuman strength. With his power cycling in the range of 700 horsepower, he is able to use his "Juroku Energy" (Superpower Energy) to punch and kick opponents with devastating effect. Daichi can throw opponents across great distances with his "Juroku Nage" (Power Throw) and can take down dozens of opponents with his King Power Press (キングパワープレス Kingu Pawā Puresu?) flying jump attack. His left hand can be converted into his "Club Megaton" weapon. His Club Megaton can become a ball and chain which can be used to strike and hit enemies as well as bind them.
  • Sokichi Banba (番場 壮吉 Banba Sōkichi?)/Big One (ビッグワン Biggu Wan?): A flamboyant playboy and master of disguise. He is the ISSIS officer who was called in to take over operations in Tokyo for Joker. Helped Joker implement the J.A.K.Q. project. He himself is a cyborg and is considered the ultimate "super cyborg" for his bionic implants allowed him to harness and manipulate all four cosmic powers (atomic, magnetic, electric and gravity). His nickname was the "Shiroi Chojin" (The White Flying Ace). He can direct his powers to perform a variety of incredible feats including flying, superhuman strength and super speed. Banba wields a fighting baton called the "Big Baton" which he can use to strike and hit opponents with great force and impact. He is a cool-headed leader and masterful tactician who can come up with the most brilliant of battle plans to defeat Crime’s cyborgs. Sokichi can transform at will without the use of the Kyouka Capsules, instead taking a sniff out of a magic red rose, then leaping and transforming in mid-air. Twenty-four years after the fall of Crime, Banban returned in Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger vs. Super Sentai as the leader of the "Dream Sentai" team. He usually does not shout a 'henshin' phrase, but did shout "Big One!" in Gaoranger vs. Super Sentai. He also used "Big One Finish" which is a spectrum slash with the Big Baton.
Mecha[edit]
  • Sky Ace - Aircraft piloted by either Spade Ace and Dia Jack or by Clover King, Joker and Keiko Hayashi (Agent 7). The aircraft's top speed is Mach 2.
Vehicles[edit]
  • Jack Tank - Armored vehicle piloted by Dia Jack, Clover King or Spade Ace. The tank has a top speed of 350 km/h.
  • Spade Machine - Modified Fiat X1/9 driven by Spade Ace, with a top speed of 400 km/h.
  • Mach Dia - Race car driven by Dia Jack, with a top speed of 450 km/h.
  • Heart Buggy - Dune buggy driven by Heart Queen, with a top speed of 350 km/h.
  • Auto Clover - Modified Suzuki GT380 motorcycle piloted by Clover King, with a top speed of 400 km/h.
Finishing attacks[edit]
  • J.A.K.Q. Hurricane (ジャッカーハリケーン Jakkā harikēn?) - The four J.A.K.Q. members grab each other by the left forearms and spin in a circle rapidly to form a hurricane.
  • Dengeki Kick (電撃キック Dengeki kikku?) - A flying kick executed simultaneously by the four J.A.K.Q. members.
  • J.A.K.Q. Cross (ジャッカークロス Jakkā kurosu?)
  • J.A.K.Q. Covack (ジャッカーコバック Jakkā kobakku?) - The four J.A.K.Q. members surround and grab the monster and throw it upwards before executing a flying kick mid-air to send it flying further. The finishing blow is a combined beam fired from their right fists.
  • Big Bomber (ビッグボンバー Biggu bonbā?) - Introduced after Big One joined the team, this finishing attack consists of a cannon, with the four J.A.K.Q. members bringing out the parts (Dia Jack and Clover King with the wheels, Heart Queen with the "V" symbol, and Spade Ace with the main cannon) and assembling them before Big One loads it with a missile. In the same fashion as the Gorenger Hurricane, the missile fired by the Big Bomber would transform into an object that is usually an anathema to the monster's personality (for example, the missile used on Iron Claw changes into a rat before hitting him). Either way, the object explodes with the monster caught in the explosion.

Others[edit]

  • Commander Daisuke Kujirai/Joker (1-22, 35-J.A.K.Q. vs Gorenger): He recruits four youths who he sees as the perfect candidates for the "super cyborg" project. Altering their physical bodies with bionic enhancements, and empowering them with energy manipulation devices, the four test subjects become the super cyborg team codenamed J.A.K.Q.

Criminal Organization Crime[edit]

Criminal Organization Crime (犯罪組織クライム Hanzai Soshiki Kuraimu?), headed by the mysterious Iron Claw, the global criminal empire known simply as "Crime" sought to become the world’s premier crime family. With a network of wealthy and influential sympathizers and employing an army of faceless, leather-masked thugs (Crimers) and cyborg assassins, Crime launched a number of spectacular and elaborate schemes to loot, kill, plunder and obtain absolute power. It is later revealed that Crime was in fact a cover organization for the alien entity called "Shine" who sought to conquer the world.

  • Boss Iron Claw (首領アイアンクロー Shuryō Aian Kurō?): An oddly dressed figurehead and "Godfather" of the Crime organization. Nothing is known about him including his nationality. Iron Claw, while appearing human was later revealed to be a cyborg much like J.A.K.Q. and Big One. His right hand was a powerful "Iron Claw" which could fire talon-like missiles. It could also detach from Iron Claw’s body to attack enemies independently. Iron Claw was a master of disguises and often masqueraded himself in a number of disguises (both male and female). He was a longtime rival of Big One and the pair have clashed at various times in the past. Iron Claw’s ultimate fighting form was a full "silver colored" super cyborg form known as "Warrior Iron Claw". He was defeated as such by the Big Bomber in the final battle of the series, but later returned in J.A.K.Q. vs. Gorenger. There, he planned to bomb seven countries (the United States, the Soviet Union, Mainland China, France, the United Kingdom, West Germany, and Japan) and go out into space until the Earth was inhabitable again and conquer it as the "Emperor of the Solar System". The Gorengers and J.A.K.Q. crushed his plans when Big One gave Spade Ace a device which would set off a remote control rocket claw that Big One had switched with Iron Claw before transforming. The claw pressed the "Detonate" button and the "Citybuster" bombs destroyed the craft that Iron Claw was in, taking Iron Claw himself with it.
  • Shine (シャイン Shain?): He is revealed to be the real mastermind behind Crime. An "A.I." (Artificial Intelligence) entity who is said to have come from the 2nd Star of the "Shine" Galaxy who attempted to use Crime to take over the Earth. He created the super cyborg Great King Icarus (イカルス大王 Ikarusu Daiō?) to take control of Crime from Iron Claw and to battle J.A.K.Q., and was later driven from Earth by J.A.K.Q. and Iron Claw.
  • Crimers (クライマー Kuraimā?): These minions work for the CRIME Organization. Their objective is to rob, kill, and create any kind of crime possible to meet with CRIME's goal in turning Japan into a crime filled nation. They wear dark purple masks and wear gray clothing. They are armed with Sten Mk.2 Submachine Guns. Their distinct sound is "kwee". Due to their appearance being rather obvious as suited men in masks, it is easy for them to adapt their appearance to blend in with human society. Generally they wear masks whenever doing an infiltration with their Crimer mask underneath. However, it is easy for the Crimers themselves to be infiltrated, as Joker does at one point to sabotage a plot to eliminate the J.A.K.Q.
  • Crime Big Four (クライム四天王 Kuraimu Shiten'ō?): A quartet of ruthless mercenaries and despots who joined forces with Iron Claw to wreak havoc across the globe. The Big Four’s headquarters was a gigantic UFO which could fly undetected around the world. The various Big Four commanded Iron Claw's remaining Crime forces and the remaining Zolders from the Black Cross Army. The Big Four had battled with other heroes across the globe including Kikaider, Kamen Rider V3, and Kamen Rider Amazon. Facing J.A.K.Q. and the Gorengers, the Big Four combine into the super cyborg entity "Big Four Robo", a monstrous and hulking mechanical monster with multiple cannons protruding throughout his body and a grinder in his lower torso. Virtually invincible, it took the combined special attacks of J.A.K.Q.'s Big Bomber and the Gorenger's Gorenger Hurricane Ball to destroy the monster.
    • Baron Iron Mask (鉄面男爵 Tetsu Men Danshaku?): An iron masked despot who had been terrorizing the European continent. Fought Kamen Rider V3 offscreen. Leads his own specialized troopers he calls his "Tetsu Men Gundan" (Iron Mask Battalion). Carries a heavy iron shield and battle spear which he can hurl with devastating skill. Also carries a blowgun which he can use to fire poison darts.
    • General Sahara (サハラ将軍 Sahara Shōgun?): African conqueror who once battled the Gorengers in Africa with his Sahara Battalion. A master swordsman and strategist, he is both ruthless and cruel in battle.
    • Captain UFO (UFO船長 Yūfō Senchō?): Fought Kamen Rider Amazon offscreen. While comical looking, Captain UFO is none-the-less a brilliant criminal mastermind who commands the UFO command ship that the Big Four use to travel the world.
    • Hell Boxer (地獄拳士 Jigoku Kenshi?): A terrifying tyrant from Mongolia who uses his hideous skull adorned armor to strike fear in his foes. Fought Kikaider offscreen. A savage and fierce warrior, he wields an iron ball and chain to crush and kill his opponents.

J.A.K.Q. vs. Gorenger[edit]

J.A.K.Q. Dengekitai vs. Gorenger (ジャッカー電撃隊VSゴレンジャー Jakkā Dengekitai tai Gorenjā?) was a movie released after the conclusion of the J.A.K.Q. Dengekitai series and featured a crossover between J.A.K.Q. and the Gorenger. While investigating a UFO in the Sky Ace, J.A.K.Q. is caught off guard by the return of Iron Claw, with the Big Four now leading the remnants of Crime and the Black Cross Army. The next day, while arriving to the scene of a washed-up corpse, Queen and Ace encounter Peggy Matsuyama, who has pursued the Sahara Army to Japan. After Peggy reveals markings on the murdered man's back, J.A.K.Q. learns of Crime's "Citybuster" project and the location of the syndicate's island base. Managing to infiltrate Crime's base, Ace and Queen learn of Iron Claw's plan to use the "Citybuster" bombs on the United States, the Soviet Union, the People's Republic of China, France, the United Kingdom, West Germany, and Japan, wiping out humanity while he and his forces retreat into space via a UFO before returning to Earth and conquering it. After saving Peggy, Ace & Queen escape the base but are surrounded by the Big Four and their armies before Clover King, Diamond Jack and the other Gorengers appear and save them. Both teams go on to defeat the Crime and Black Cross armies and the Big Four combine to form the super cyborg "Big Four Robo" who overwhelms both teams until Big One arrives and the two teams combine their attacks to destroy it. Iron Claw then retreats in his UFO and begins to activate the "Citybuster" bombs until his UFO self-destructs, finishing him off for good. It turns out that Big One switched Iron Claw's hand with a remote controlled one that Spade Ace used to detonate the "Citybuster" bombs, destroying the craft and Iron Claw with it.
