The Green Hornet is a masked crimefighter first featured on American radio in the 1930s. By day he is mild-mannered newspaper publisher BRITT REID, but at night he and his assistant KATO don masks and take to the streets in their super badass car, the BLACK BEAUTY, to take on crime in all its forms. Their trick is that even though they're heroes, they still have such a bad reputation with law enforcement that they're able to get closer to the criminal syndicates than they normally could, though you'd think they'd catch on after a while. I have some tapes of the old radio shows, which were pretty rad, along with a bunch of Shadow radio stories but that's neither here nor there.

(There was also a nifty little fact that Britt Reid is the Lone Ranger's great-nephew.)

After he got big on the radio, some comics came along:

There was also a TV series for a while in the 60s, which I really enjoyed re-runs of (and which had Bruce mo'fuckin' Lee as Kato):

And now there's a feature film starring Seth Rogen, Jay Chou, Christoph Waltz and Cameron Diaz, and directed by Michel Gondry!

And we can also talk about the Shadow and the Phantom if you want, they have a similar pulpy vibe.
