HistoryEdit

Britt Reid Sr

Britt Reid Sr.

Britt Reid Sr. was the original vigilante known as The Green Hornet. Britt was born sometime in the early 1910s, and was the only child of Dan Reid Jr., a Chicago newspaper publisher. In 1934, Britt left the United States to experience the world around him[1]. While still on this "world tour", Reid found himself trapped in China during the Nanking Massacre of 1937. It was during this time in China that he met and rescued a renegade Japanese soldier named Hayashi Kato, who had turned on his fellow soldiers following the massacre[2]. Returning to the United States with Kato in early 1938, Britt discovered that in his absence, his father had died from a stroke and left him The Daily Sentinel newspaper[3][4]. Shortly after taking control of The Sentinel in mid-1938, Britt was asked by his great uncle, John Reid (formerly the masked vigilante known as The Lone Ranger), to become a new Lone Ranger of the modern age[5]. After some debate, he decided that he wasn't going to become a new Lone Ranger, but develop his own identity as The Green Hornet[6]. One of Britt's first "missions" as The Green Hornet involved him and his great uncle teaming-up to battle a new Cavendish Gang and Charles Bowles Jr., the son of the old west outlaw Black Bart[7]. In early September of 1938, Britt and Kato teamed-up with several masked vigilantes in New York City to fight The Clock and his "Black Police" army[8]. Shortly after these events, Britt and Kato returned to Chicago to take down mob boss "Skid" Caruso[9]. Sometime after sending Caruso to prison, The Green Hornet and Kato once again teamed-up with several masked vigilantes, this time on a mission to stop a threat that spanned several generations and universes[10]. In late-1941, Britt ran for mayor of Chicago and took down Nazi sympathizer Vito "The Face" Cerelli[11].

At some point, Britt settled down and had a son, Britt Reid Jr.. After the death of Britt Sr., Britt Jr. took on the mantle of The Green Hornet.
