Prince of Gamma. The Prince of Gamma appeared in a number of Japanese kamishibai (stories for children told by wandering performers) in the 1930s.
The Prince of Gamma is a Costumed Avenger Superhuman. A costumed hero, the Prince of Gamma, protects Tokyo, Japan, and even the Earth from a variety of perils, from laser-eyed aliens shaped like brains to White Perils who use Nautilus-inspired submarines (disguised to look like giant crabs) to sink Japanese shipping. The hero is actually a young alien prince who lives in Tokyo in the guise of a street urchin. He has the ability to fly and is super-strong, and is assisted by a brave, wise, adult professor.
