  • Though various incarnations sometimes change details, in most versions the Green Hornet is the alter ego of Britt Reid, wealthy young publisher of the Daily Sentinel newspaper by day, who goes out in his masked "Green Hornet" identity at night to fight crime as a vigilante. Reid is accompanied by his loyal and similarly masked partner and confidant, Kato, who drives their technologically advanced car, the "Black Beauty". As the Green Hornet, Reid masquerades as a criminal to infiltrate the underworld, leaving behind criminals and any incriminating evidence found for the police.

  • Radio in the 1930s was like the internet bubble boom of the 90s, 00s and 10s. Good ideas were few, and copycats were plentiful. The totally original concept of the Blue Beetle was aped by many in the form of Spiderman, the X-Men and the subject of this article, The Green Hornet.

abstract
  • Radio in the 1930s was like the internet bubble boom of the 90s, 00s and 10s. Good ideas were few, and copycats were plentiful. The totally original concept of the Blue Beetle was aped by many in the form of Spiderman, the X-Men and the subject of this article, The Green Hornet. Detroit radio executive Barry Gordy, needed a success for his station to compete with the likes of Chicago's WLS and WGN, New York's WOR and Pixley's WPIG. His pockets were deep from the venture capitalists of Windsor Ontario, and he bought, outright, the writing staff of the Blue Beetle, to create a radioactive bug guy for his station. This is not unlike AOL buying the Huffington Post, but would be closer if Steven Case had bought Arianna Huffington herself.
