  • Zorro is a mysterious black-clad rider who fights injustice in Spanish California. The sleepy pueblo of Reina de Los Angeles could be Paradise. The weather is sunny, the señoritas are pretty, the caballeros are handsome, and the land is rich with promise. But alas! The new governor is a tyrant who oppresses the natives, overtaxes the peasants, and seeks to rob the hidalgos who object to bad government of their lands and wealth to give to himself and his cronies.

The resounding popularity of the film prompted McCulley to publish 65 more stories featuring Zorro, which have since inspired countless film, television and literary adaptations throughout the world. The character of Zorro is most notable for pioneering the use of disguise and dual identity to fight crime and injustice, though many argue that McCulley probably borrowed these ideas from The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Emmuska Orczy or The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas.

Zorro made an effort to publicly humiliate his opponents, often leaving his mark upon their face. His mark was a "Z" carved with the three quick strokes of his sword. Zorro was athletic, cunning and a master swordsman. In his first adventure, he carried a pistol and used a whip to beat those who had whipped the innocent. In his civilan identity, Don Diego pretended to be a weak and self centered fop. Zorro was assisted by Bernardo, his deaf and mute servant, his father Don Alejandro Vega, Fray (Friar) Felipe, and his best friend Don Audre Ruiz. He loved an impoverished noblewoman named Lolita Pulido, who regarded Don Diego with contempt, but admired the bravery of Zorro. She later learned that the two were one in the same, and accepted his proposal of marriage. Don Diego's son, Don Cesar Vega, later took up his father's mantle. His great grandson, James Vega did the same in 1937. Zorro also inspired the heroes known as The Eagle (Don Loring) and The Black Whip (Barbara Meredith), among others.

  • Description Zorro (Spanish for Fox) is the secret identity of Don Diego de la Vega (originally Don Diego Vega), a fictional nobleman and master swordsman living in Spanish and Mexican-era California. He defends the people of the land against tyrannical governors and other villains, and is not only much too cunning and foxlike for the bumbling authorities to be caught, but delights in publicly humiliating those same foes, while riding on his horse Tornado. Zorro (often called “El Zorro” in early stories) was created in 1919 by pulp writer Johnston McCulley, and first made his appearance in The Curse of Capistrano, serialized in the pulp magazine All-Story Weekly. The character's visual motif is, typically, a black costume with a flowing Spanish cape, a flat-brimmed Andalusian-style hat, more appropriate to a California caballero than the wide sombrero the character wore in the original, and a black cowl mask that covers the top of the head from eye level upwards. (The mask covered his whole face in the original.) In addition, his favoured weapon is a rapier which he often uses to leave his distinctive mark, a large 'Z' made with three quick cuts. He also uses a bullwhip, like the later Indiana Jones. In the original story, he also used a pistol, but this has rarely been seen since. Zorro became a key inspiration for The Phantom, Batman and other comic-strip action heroes. Zorro's latest appearance is in the Telemundo series Zorro: La Espada y La Rosa. In the 1998 film The Mask of Zorro, a younger protagonist, Alejandro Murrieta was accorded the title, and is called Zorro in his own 2005 adventure The Legend of Zorro. (In this second appearance, Murrieta has also achieved the status of “Don” and has renamed himself Alejandro de la Vega.) Inspiration for the character McCulley had no idea how successful Zorro would become, so at the denouement of the Curse of Capistrano, Zorro's true identity was revealed to all. Zorro soon became a regular character in numerous pulp fiction magazines. After the success of the silent film The Mark of Zorro (1920) starring Douglas Fairbanks and Noah Beery, McCulley's novel was re-released by the publisher Grosset and Dunlap under the same title. (Fairbanks also starred in a 1925 sequel titled Don Q, Son of Zorro, playing Don Diego's grown-up son, Don Cesar, as well as reprising his role as Don Diego.) The black costume that modern audiences associate with the character stem from Fairbanks' smash hit movie rather than McCulley's original story, and McCulley's subsequent Zorro adventures copied the Fairbanks Zorro rather than the other way around. Zorro is similar to some real bandits in California history. He is often associated with Joaquin Murrieta, the “Mexican and/or Chilean Robin Hood”, whose life was fictionalized in an 1854 book by John Rollin Ridge, and in the 1998 film The Mask of Zorro, where Murrieta's brother succeeds de la Vega as Zorro. Other possible inspirations include Robin himself (though he was English, of course), California bandit Salomon Pico, Tiburcio Vasquez, and William Lamport, an Irish soldier living in Mexico in the 17th century. Lamport's life was fictionalized by Vicente Riva Palacio in the 19th century. While there are many theories about who the 'real' Zorro was, it seems most likely that McCulley drew inspiration from several different sources, not to mention the 1905 novel The Scarlet Pimpernel, which features a number of parallels to McCulley's later creation. Many Californians believe that the Yokuts Indian Estanislao was one of the inspirations for Zorro. Estanislao led a revolt against the Mission San Jose in 1827. There is not much historical basis for the Spanish hacienda culture depicted in the books and films. The population of California increased when it was a territory of the Viceroyalty of New Spain (later Mexico) for 300 years, but a multi-generational feudal society and peasant class never fully developed, as it had in Mexico proper. It was just too remote. California was not even settled until the 1760s and most Mexican land grants were less than ten years old when Mexico lost California during the Mexican-American War. However, life in 18th century colonial New Spain was modeled on the class society of Europe, with nobility at the top and peasants at the bottom, and hacienda culture was and is prevalent in the rural areas of Mexico proper. In this regard, some authors tend to believe that Johnston McCulley borrowed heavily from Vicente Riva Palacio's novel Memories of an Impostor: Don Guillén de Lamport, King of Mexico. The Andalusian-colonial society depicted in the Zorro Hollywood films, with gentlemen in bolero suits and swords and ladies in comb and mantilla, is quite picturesque and certainly evokes the gracious living of the creole in colonial New Spain. Skills and Resources Zorro is an extremely agile athlete and acrobat, using his bullwhip as a gymnastic accoutrement to swing through gaps between the city's roofs, is very capable of landing from great heights and taking a fall, and, although he is an expert swordsman, has more than once demonstrated his more than able prowess in unarmed combat, even against as many as twenty armed opponents. His calculating and precise dexterity has enabled him to use his two main weapons, his sword and bullwhip, as an extension of his very sleight hand. He never uses brute strength, more his fox-like sly mind and well-practiced technique to outmatch an opponent. Zorro also has a medium-sized dagger tucked in his left boot for emergencies. He has also used his cape as a blind, a trip-mat–and when used effectively–a disarming tool. Zorro's boots are also weighted, as is his hat, which he has thrown, frisbee-like, as an efficiently substantial warning to enemies. Usually he uses psychological mockery to make his opponents too angry to be coordinated in combat. His horse, Tornado, has well lived up to his name, outrunning entire armies, overtaking enemies miles away, even catching up to a full speeding train so that Zorro could save his wife and son. As an inspiration to the crowds that love Zorro dearly, he rears up in the distance, with the sun behind him, and Zorro raises his sword to symbolize victory to the people of his beloved country. Zorro's Denounment Zorro's dénouement De la Vega (Hopkins) passes the Zorro legacy onto Alejandro Murrieta (Banderas) in the 1998 film The Mask of Zorro. The end of Don Diego de la Vega as Zorro is shown in the 1998 movie The Mask of Zorro. In 1821, during the Mexican War of Independence, Governor Don Rafael Montero (Ex-Moncada) finally discovers the secret identity of Zorro and lays a trap to catch him. The two enemies fight in De la Vega’s mansion, accidentally killing De la Vega’s wife, Esperanza. Don Diego is captured and imprisoned, his home burned down and his infant daughter, Elena, kidnapped and brought up by Rafael Montero as his own daughter during his exile in Spain. Twenty years later, Montero returns to California and makes a plan to separate the region from the new Republic of Mexico, ruled by General Santa Anna, buying California with the gold of a secret mine in the Californian desert. This enterprise is fueled by slave labor in the mine and a clear intent to kill all personnel after the gold is extracted. De la Vega escapes from prison with the intention of taking revenge on Montero and telling Elena her true origin. He also trains a young delinquent, Alejandro Murrieta, as a new Zorro. In the final fight, both Montero and De la Vega die. The new Zorro and Elena get married. Murrieta (now known as Alejandro De la Vega) continues the fight against injustice at least until 1850, when California becomes the 31st US State. Zorro continues his heroic crusade in American California, with the approval and support of his wife Elena and son Joaquín. Inspiration and Influence Although not completely original in its concept and recognizing influences from previous publications like the Spring Heeled Jack adventures, notably including motifs such as the secret subterranean lair and the habit of marking the bodies of his enemies with a signature letter, this character is one of the earliest precursors of the superhero of American comic books, being an independently wealthy person who has a secret identity (as with Spring Heeled Jack and The Scarlet Pimpernel) which he defends by wearing a mask, and who accomplishes good for the people with his superior fighting abilities and resourcefulness. The ultimate source is probably Alexandre Dumas's The Count of Monte Cristo, where the wronged hero returns as an independently wealthy man, and under an assumed elegant persona wreaks vengeance on those who betrayed him, and does secret good for those who tried to help him in earlier days. Zorro even has an animal symbol, though English speakers might not recognize it, his name being Spanish for “fox”. The animal is never depicted as an emblem, but as a metaphor for the character's wiliness (“Zorro, 'the Fox', so cunning and free…”) - as with the American historical figure Francis Marion, “The Swamp Fox”, who was also the subject of a Disney television series in the 1950s. A more literal interpretation of Zorro as fox may be Swiper the Fox from the children's television program Dora the Explorer, a larcenous villain who wears a Zorro-like mask. In a similar vein, in horror fiction, Kim Newman's short story “Out In The Night, When The Full Moon Is Bright…” reinterprets Zorro as a near-immortal Mexican werewolf fighting against evil, injustice and oppression from colonial Mexico to the ghettos of a near-future Los Angeles. Disney also highlighted Zorro's connection with the Robin Hood tale in its 1973 animated interpretation, Robin Hood, wherein the lead character is drawn as an anthropomorphized fox. Zorro has also been adapted for comic books and comic strips. The most notable character whose creation was highly influenced by Zorro is Batman, created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger in the 1939; in the origin, the Wayne family actually attend The Mark of Zorro at the cinema the night Bruce's parents are murdered, and the future Batman takes some inspiration from the masked hero. Zorro keeps his horse in the basement of his house, and Batman keeps his Batmobile in a similar hideout, the Batcave. Zorro was also the inspiration of the remarkably similar characters El Coyote and El Aguila. Don Diego de la Vega, the mild-mannered caballero who at night donned the black cape and hood and made his mark against evildoers as Zorro, first made his appearance in print in the All Story Weekly in McCulley's five-part series entitled “The Curse of Capistrano,” beginning August 9, 1919. Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford, on their honeymoon, selected “Curse” as the inaugural picture for their new studio, United Artists, beginning the character's cinematic tradition. McCulley wrote at least 65 more Zorro stories, which in addition to feature films inspired a Republic serial and even, in 1995, a London stage production. Image:Truelovezb.jpg Westley's disguise in the 1987 film The Princess Bride is heavily inspired by Zorro. Roronoa Zoro, from the manga/anime One Piece, is said to be loosely based on Zorro, if only in name and sword skills. However, due to issues of Copyright infringement, almost every dub for the TV show have changed his name to “Zolo”. The arguably most famous Zorro movie appearance, starring Tyrone Power, more or less adopts the book version, where Diego masquerades as a brilliant swordsman but a decadent and uncaring human being until the brilliantly staged final fight with Basil Rathbone; critics single out the swordfight as arguably the most realistic and thrilling on film. Texas Tech's The Masked Rider is similar to Zorro. However, Walt Disney's television operation clearly decided that, while such an arrogant and condescending character may work in print and even in a one-shot movie, viewers would quickly tire of him on a weekly TV show. So in Disney's Zorro, Diego de la Vega instead masquerades as a passionate and compassionate crusader for justice – but as “the most inept swordsman in all of California.” In the TV show, everyone knows Diego would love to do what Zorro does, but thinks he does not have the skill. Ironically, McCulley barely missed seeing Zorro reach the peak of fame, dying in 1958, just as the Disney-produced Zorro television show was becoming phenomenally successful. With some changes to reflect school colors, Zorro's black mask, cape and gaucho hat have been adopted by mascots at Texas Tech University and Edward S. Marcus High School. Film and Movies The character has been adapted for many movies.

The most revered version was rendered by Alex Toth for Dell Comics in Four Color magazine starting in 1949 and appearing through the 1950s. Zorro was given his own title in 1959, which lasted 7 more issues and then was made a regular feature of Walt Disney's Comics and Stories(also published by Dell) from #275 to #278. Gold Key began a Zorro series in 1966, but, like Gold Keys contemporary Lone Ranger series, it only featured material reprinted from the earlier Dell comics and folded, after 9 issues, in 1968. The character remained dormant for the next twenty years until it was revived by Marvel in 1990, for a 12-issue tie-in with the Duncan Regehr television series. Many of these comics had Alex Toth covers. In 1993 Topps Comics published a 2-issue mini-series Dracula Versus Zorro followed by a Zorro series that ran 11 issues. Topps created Lady Rawhide, a spin-off from the Zorro mythos, in two brief series. * A newspaper daily and Sunday strip were also published in the late 1990s. This was written by Don McGregor and rendered by Tom Yeats. Today, the comic book adventures of Zorro are published by Papercutz. This latest version is drawn in a manga style. The character also appeared in European comics and is universally beloved in Latin America, usually in licensed, translated reprints of American comics.

  • Zorro (Spanish for fox) is the secret identity of Fox, a really dumb fox and crappy swordsman living in the Space colonial era. The character has change his image through the years, but the typical image of him is a masked dumb fox outlaw who defends the people who loves ham and hates cheese against tyrannical Lord Barack's officials and other villains.
  • Issu de parents mexicains (donc de deux pères), le petit Don Diego Delapoutrelle était la risée de ses velus camarades de classe car son père Rodrigo et son père Paulo le forçaient, pour assouvir leurs tendances sadomasochistes, à porter de moulantes tenues de cuir noir et des masques de la même couleur. Exaspéré par leurs railleries puériles et incessantes et le fait que des chansons d'Elton John s'élèvent sur son passage, il décide de fuir aux Etats Unis et de changer son nom en Don Diego delaVega, nom plus folklorique qui lui attire tout de suite la sympathie de Ricardo, le doyen des immigrés Sud Américain. Dans les faubourgs de Los Angeles la vie est rude, aussi le petit Diego est souvent contraint de se prostituer dans les toilettes d'un établissement miteux nommé "Le Renard" pour pouvoir payer ses doses de coke. Désespéré de voir un talent aussi peu exploité, Ricardo demande à son fils Bernardo d'instruire celui qu'il pense être le héros de demain. Bernardo refuse et en punition Ricardo lui coupe la langue avec une vieille pince coupante rouillée. La douleur le contraint à accepter aussi apprend-il à Don Diego à se servir d'une arme blanche (il trouvait le contraste amusant : une arme blanche et une tenue noire... connard !). Enhardi par sa maîtrise de l'épée, la tête pleine de rêves de justice et le cœur entre ses deux poumons, Diego décide de retourner au Mexique pour se faire redresseur de tords (sa véritable ambition était de dominer le Mexique puis le monde mais il était trop lâche pour y parvenir). Bien qu'il eut quelques soucis à la douane (Bernardo s'était caché dans son sac de sport) il arriva sans trop d'encombres à Mexico (Mexiiiicooooooooooooooooooooooooooo !) où il s'acheta une grande baraque avec un toit qui fuit et une écurie (pour héberger Bernardo). Il se fit également appeler Zorro (qui signifie Renard en hommage à son bistrot fétiche) et sortit la nuit avec son déguisement pour faire des tags sur les murs. Ses actes de vandalisme répétés lui valurent la haine du Sergent Garcia, représentant de l'ordre et de la loi à Mexico et grand amateur de nage synchronisée et de gastronomie russe.

  • Zorro was a Terran Confederation pilot onboard the TCS Concordia. In the non-canon losing path of the game, the Concordia is sweeping through the Ghorah Khar system and Zorro was assigned to lead the Concordia.
  • Zorro is a mysterious black-clad rider who fights injustice in Spanish California. The sleepy pueblo of Reina de Los Angeles could be Paradise. The weather is sunny, the señoritas are pretty, the caballeros are handsome, and the land is rich with promise. But alas! The new governor is a tyrant who oppresses the natives, overtaxes the peasants, and seeks to rob the hidalgos who object to bad government of their lands and wealth to give to himself and his cronies. He has the army firmly under his control, and has placed corrupt officers to enforce his will upon the people. But there is one man who the governor cannot stop, one man who rises up to fight for justice, who inspires the people to resist and take control of their own destinies. That man is Señor Zorro, The Fox, whose cunning is legend, whose swordsmanship is unsurpassed, whose black-clad, masked form slips in and out of the night like a ghost. You may know him by the ragged letter "Z" he carves into the cheeks of wicked men who have lost duels to him, and leaves at the scene of his adventures. He discomforts the powerful and corrupt, and helps the poor and oppressed. Truly, this Zorro is a hero! But who is this mysterious Zorro behind his mask? Well, it is certain that it cannot be Don Diego (de la) Vega, even though Don Diego is certainly the right age and of good family. For Don Diego is a useless fop who reads poetry, disdains violence and any form of sweat-inducing activity, and sniffs a perfumed handkerchief when in the presence of his lessers. No, it cannot be he. Or can it? Zorro was first created by Johnston McCulley for the novel The Curse of Capristrano serialized in All-Story Weekly Magazine in 1919. The Swashbuckling story was complete in itself, closing off much room for sequels. Douglas Fairbanks Senior read the novel, loved it, and convinced his studio to buy the rights so he could star in a movie adaptation, The Mark of Zorro (1920). It was a huge success, inspiring McCulley to write a sequel, The Further Adventures of Zorro, and a total of sixty Zorro stories altogether, ending with The Mask of Zorro, printed posthumously in 1959. There have been many Zorro movies (notably the 1940 Twentieth Century Fox re-make of The Mark of Zorro with Tyrone Power), at least six television series (three of them animated), a couple live-action ones, some professional Fanfic novels by other authors reinterpreting the character, one Hispanic Soap Opera ("Zorro: La Espada y la Rosa") based on one of these novels (the one written by Isabel Allende, if you wonder), a few Comic Book adaptations, and even an Anime series (Kaiketsu Zorro). The most recent movies were two films in 1998 (The Mask of Zorro) and 2005 (The Legend of Zorro) with Anthony Hopkins as the aging hero, Antonio Banderas as his protege and heir and Catherine Zeta Jones as Hopkins' daughter and Banderas' Action Girlfriend. In addition, Zorro has inspired many other heroes, such as Batman (it's canon within Batman's own continuity!) and Roronoa Zoro of One Piece.
  • Zorro Zan-zan, detto anche "La Volpe", il cavaliere mascherato, il giustiziere della notte o il giustiziere del tardo pomeriggio, (Los Angeles, 1792 - prigione di Alcatraz, 1872) è stato uno spadaccino mafioso ispanico che si occupava dei traffici illegali di rhum nella California.
  • Zorro is the main hero of the series of books, comic books and movies of the same name; a masked outlaw living in Spanish colonial-era California he is portrayed as a defender of civilians against the tyrannical authorities as well as other villains.

"Zorro" is the Spanish word for "fox" and is used to describe the hero's personality: clever and capable of taking great risks without seeming to care about personal safety. He is played by Antonio Banderes.

  • Zorro is a masked freedom fighter in Spanish-ruled Los Angelos. The character was created in 1919 by Johnston McCulley in the story "The Curse of Capistrano", and already in 1920 appeared in the film The Mask of Zorro.

  • Zorro is a pulp hero originally serialized in magazines and later became the inspiration for various superheroes who followed.
  • Zorro first appeared in "The Curse of Capistrano", a short story by Johnston McCulley published in the magazine All Story Weekly on August 19, 1919. The story caught the attention of Douglas Fairbanks, who soon brought the swashbuckling hero to the silver screen inThe Mark of Zorro. The resounding popularity of the film prompted McCulley to publish 65 more stories featuring Zorro, which have since inspired countless film, television and literary adaptations throughout the world. The character of Zorro is most notable for pioneering the use of disguise and dual identity to fight crime and injustice, though many argue that McCulley probably borrowed these ideas from The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Emmuska Orczy or The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas. It can be said that any superhero who uses a cape, mask or secret identity is borrowing elements from Zorro mythology, since Bob Kane has credited Zorro as the prototype for the character of Batman, which in turn influenced many superhero characters that followed.
  • Zorro is a champion of freedom and justice who speaks with a Spanish accent but isn't a socialist.
