Man VS. Rangers

UPDATED 8/12/09 5:30 PM EST
Forget Man vs. Wild, how many series of Super Sentai used the prefix Man instead of Ranger in the title? There were 9 series in fact.

Denshi Sentai Denziman
1980, the first series to have the suffix -Man.

Kagaku Sentai Dynaman
In 1983, the second series to have the 'Man' suffix, but came two series later (Goggle V and Sun Vulcan)

Choudensi Bioman
1984, the second one. The first one to have two females as well.

Dengeki Sentai Changeman
1985, the first and only series so far to have the color combination of Red, Black, Blue, Pink and White.

Choushinsei Flashman
1986, the fourth series.

Hikari Sentai Maskman
1987, the first series to have a sixth member, but it was in only one episode.

Choujuu Sentai Liveman
1988, the second series to start with 3 members. The first to have a Blue female member.

Chikyuu Sentai Fiveman
1990, the 8th series to have the word 'man' in the title. It skipped a year, Turboranger ended the decade with the name 'Ranger.'

Choujin Sentai Jetman
1991, the second series to have a female Blue member.

Seijuu Sentai Gingaman
1998, the tentth and last series to use the '-Man' suffix and it has been 7 years since they did so.

Other (5) series that didn't use the 'Ranger' suffix:
JAKQ, Battle Fever J, Sun Vulcan, Goggle V, and Go Go Five

Which series would sound good with the suffix '-ranger.' Denziranger and Changeranger would not sound right. But maybe Gingaranger or Bioranger, that may be alright.

Denziranger sounds pretty cool, I think.

Aren't the images from Dynaman and Denzyman mixed up?
