"The Green Hornet is a fictional character - an American pulp hero and masked vigilante - created by George W. Trendle and Fran Striker with input by radio director James Jewell in 1936. Since his radio debut in the 1930s, the Green Hornet has appeared in numerous serialized dramas in a wide variety of media. The character appeared in film serials in the 1940s, a network television program in the 1960s, multiple comic book series from the 1940s on, and a feature film to be released in January 2011. Though various incarnations sometimes change details, in most incarnations the Green Hornet is Britt Reid, a newspaper publisher by day who goes out in his masked "Green Hornet" identity at night to fight crime as a vigilante. He is accompanied by his similarly masked sidekick and confidante Kato, who drives their technologically-advanced car: "Black Beauty"."
Through all the years, The Green Hornet has gone through tons of changes. It's changed settings, actors, personifications. But after all the differences and over 75 years of exsistance, The Green Hornet is seeing the light of day with this year's movie adaptation. The film has brought new life to an almost forgotten classic. The new blockbuster has brought new attention to the Green Hornet franchise, with new comics, toys and collectibles. With Seth Rogan as the coveted Green Hornet, the movie is bound to have a new found comedic side to the masked crusader.
