Kid Muscle, the son of legendary wrestler King Muscle, rockets to Earth and finds an evil wrestling gang called the DMP tearing the place apart. The punks on the DMP are the weirdest, nastiest, most outlandishly powerful musclebound freaks the galaxy has ever known. Kid Muscle's only hope: form a team that's even wilder. The only possible result is earthshaking, bodyslamming, ultimate-powered action that sends our entire planet sailing over the top rope!

Ultimate Muscle aka Kinnikuman Nisei is the sequel to the older Shonen Jump series Kinnikuman which is required to be read first. Once completing the original series, Ultimate Muscle pays huge homages to the original series along bringing some familiar faces and a few retcons, but the sequel takes a violent, darker tone in its conclusion.

The series begin a bit oddly as there's multiple chapters each playing as a different origin story for Ultimate Muscle but once those chapters are out the way we discover that there has been a time skip of 28 years. Our former heroes have now become too old to read more

Manga: Akatsuki!! Otokojuku: Seishen yo, Taishi no dake
Both mangas follow the next generation of their respective series which include the sons of our previous main characters. Ultimate Muscle has more bizarre character designs while Otokojuku has more variety in fights. Both sequels are just as good as their predecessors & contain the same level of over the top manliness!

Manga: Baki: New Grappler Baki
Both are sequels in which the authors' drawings improve greatly while also bringing more violent content to the fights. The matches of both MMA and wrestling are over-the-top but also share the same struggle of the main character living up to his father's reputation.

Manga: JoJo no Kimyou na Bouken Part 2: Sentou Chuuryuu
Of all the parts found in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, I feel Battle Tendency had the greatest emphasis on family bearing a similar tone to Ultimate Muscle aka Kinnikuman Nisei. Both contain story arcs centered on the descendants of heroic families such as the Zeppelis, the Joestars, the Robin Dynasty, & the Kinniku Clan, etc. These manga carry the spirit of manly 80's shonen with emphasis on camaraderie and multiple bizarre events throughout the story.
