...but not actually. I think it's just an alien or a guy in a spacesuit. I wouldn't really take an interest in the Ninja until I was 10 or 11, when I got one of the first English-language books on the subject (this one, I'm pretty sure). I found the whole notion pretty interesting, but never took an interest in fictional treatments of it (I have to date never watched a ninja movie--or, in fact, any martial arts film not involving rubber monster suits). I did have a variety of shuriken through the years, though.
