The Green Hornet and Green Lantern



Kyle Rayner's original costume got a lot of flack from some fans, particularly the mask.  I thought that this was a bad rap, and that the costume as designed was pretty cool looking, and a nice departure from the Green Lantern outfits we had seen up until that point.  Some artists did have difficulty illustrating the mask, causing some to call it a "crab face", but that was more due to their translation than the actual look that Darryl Banks came up with.

Awesome!

Hey, if you are NOT reading Ralph Garman's Batman '66 Meets Green Hornet with Kevin Smith, Ty Templeton and Alex Ross - you really should! I've seen a video of Garman with Adam West - he's a diehard fan. From reading the comic, I don't get the impression he's a fanboy though. The book comes off as a really polished sequel to the crossover episodes.

I'm hooked on the Batman '66 series, so...

I've been meaning to pick up Dynamite's Hornet or the Masks series. Maybe in trade paperback. It's a shame that the connection between The Lone Ranger and The Green Hornet has been lost...

I became a Green Hornet enthusiast, back in the 1990's, with the Now Comics adaptation. It's a shame that Seth Rogen's version, for the silver screen, couldn't have been just as faithful.

The second Anonymous came up with what I was going to suggest: a special appearance by the Green Lama! That hero would, I think, be a perfect team-up with his contemporary Green Lantern, Alan Scott.

Green Reaper - you made that one up, right? Searching was no help. Maybe this character is from the Green Reaper beer label?

Yup!

How about (and, I'm not kidding: he really was a one-shot superhero in the 1940's) the JOLLY GREEN GIANT?
