Frustrated with the slow speed of justice and the corruption of the police, newspaper publisher Brit Reid dons the a green hat, coat and mask to fight denizens of the underworld as the Green Hornet. Alongside his Asian servant Kato, the Green Hornet made life tough for racketeers and crooks on his famous radio show during the 1930s and 40s, and inevitably made the jump to comics early in the Golden Age. First published by Holyoke, The Green Hornet was taken over by Harvey, which continued the run through the late 1940s. The Hornet has made several comebacks, including a notable television series in the 1960s featuring the young Bruce Lee as Kato.
