Green Hornet Vs. Daredevil



Continued from yesterday's cover, you knew it was only a matter of time before DD decided to check out what was going on with the new guy in town.

Judging from the comments yesterday, it seems that I am not the only one who felt that the Seth Rogen-led Green Hornet film was a big letdown.  So, I was very glad to hear that Paramount pictures and director Gavin O'Connor are already set to reboot the property, this time with a much more serious tone.  Let's hope that the second time will be the charm!

Do not think the Green Hornet could take Daredevil in a fight so was hoping for Kato / Daredevil match-up. Maybe we will get a followup one in a few weeks with Kato giving Daredevil licks for the ones Hornet got.

Ross, have you ever done a Crimson Avenger (before he got the spandex) & Wing with or versus Green Hornet & Kato? Talk about twins separated at birth!

Glenn Host said...

Neither Kato nor Wing is listed in LABELS as characters with appearances. It not due to a lack of Asian characters for Sunfire, Shang-Chi, and Doctor Light (female one) have all appeared in blog. I could see issue with find good pictures of Wing but Kato has been in several Limited Series so should be no shortage. Need a Team called "Sidekicks" with a number of Sidekicks with marital arts ability on it.

A fitting follow-up to yesterday. The companies holding these characters really should consider making this story for real. This would be so good.

JJ, nice idea, but the real twin separated at birth for the Green Hornet would have to be the Sandman, Wesley Dodds, and Ross has already done this https://braveandboldlost.blogspot.com/2014/11/green-hornet-and-sandman.html

Ross, have you considered a Creepy-Crawly issue? Green Hornet, Wasp,Spider-Man taking on Killer Moth and the Hive? Maybe even commentary from Alice in Wonderland's Caterpillar? I also seem to remember a butterfly in Dial H For Hero but don't know if she made the cover.

There is an issue with Ambush Bug forming and Insects Incorporated team...

Awesome cover!
I would hope for something more along the lines of Iron Man as far as a Green Hornet reboot. Serious, but not too serious. Something fun. With a light-hearted, but not campy approach.

Ingenious conclusion, Ross. :-)

RIP, Mr. Williams. Your (criminally under-rated) performance, as TV's Green Hornet, will always be remembered--and appreciated--by me.

I hope the same thing, Ross. Lord knows, there's already been a successful precedent.*

Eric Bana's Hulk = three stars.

This reboot is very good news about Green Hornet. I only ever saw clips of Seth Rogen's film, but they actually made me feel like weeping. For the tone, I'm completely with AirDave.

Wolfhammer said...

GREEN HORNET reboot is a great idea. I'm ready for a proper reboot of The SPIRIT as well.

You make me happy with news of a pending new Green Hornet movie. The last one was a debacle and I feared the last one that would be be offered in my lifetime. I have some hope now. Thanks.

Rip Off

And I seem to recall Roy Thomas doing a Crimson Avenger/Sandman team-up, probably in 'Secret Origins', which would complete the circle...

Well, all three (Crimson Avenger, Sandman, and Green Hornet) were homages / ripoffs of the Shadow. GH actually started first, in 1936, as a radio program. CA was first in comics, in 1938, and Sandman came along in 1939. CA was pretty much a direct ripoff of the Hornet: newsman secret identity, business suit with accessory (fedora, cloak, or mask), and oriental sidekick, but added the gas gun. Sandman kept the gun, added the gas mask, and lost the sidekick (Sandy didn't come along until after Robin and everybody went to Spandex).

GH might have been influenced by the Shadow. But, the radio show was primarily a spin-off of THE LONE RANGER. Both having been created by Fran(k) Striker. Hence, Britt Reid being the Depression-era grandnephew of John Reid!

Of course, with all the corporate hodge-podging since then, I think the copyrights to both characters are now held by separate conglomerates.
