Marvel Rips Off Kamen Rider Sprits Anime For Their New NINO Nova

Body

We knew that Ed McGuinness and Jeph Loeb's new NINO Nova was a take on some kind of Anime design.

Now we have the proof.

It looks like the following helmet from the 2008 Anime, Kamen Rider Spirits.

Looks like Marvel ripped it off pretty much exactly.

Or is "influenced by" a better set of words?

They also ripped off of Spider-Man for NINO Nova as well, but I suppose they can do that.

Anybody know the back story to the character that owns the helmet in Kamen Rider Spirits?
