His alter ego
 "The Green Hornet"

With his faithful manservant, Kato (Bruce Lee) Britt Reid in the guise of the Green Hornet battled organized crime.

His arsenal of weapons included a gas gun which shot a non-lethal immobilizing gas, the hornet stinger cane that emitted an incapacitating sound wave, and the Kung Fu talents of his manservant Kato.

Their automobile nicknamed the Black Beauty was a sleek gadget-filled vehicle (a la James Bond's Astin Martin) with a TV camera that circled the city transmitting pictures back to the car; and small brooms that dropped from the rear bumper to whisk away tire tracks.

Only the D.A. knew that the Hornet and Kato (despite their underworld dealings) were actually working for and not against the law.

The Green Hornet was actually the great nephew of the Lone Ranger (the Lone Ranger's nephew's grandson). Both of whom wore a trademark mask to conceal their identity.

character The Green Hornet was created by George Trendle and Fran Striker. The character originated on Detroit radio station WZYZ in 1936.
