THE GREEN HORNET

THIS FAMOUS HORNET COMES OUT OF HIS NEST TO PARTY

January 31

You don't have to be real to have a birthday. The famous superhero The Green Hornet was "born" 75 years ago today. But he didn't come into the world in a hospital. Instead, he came to life on a radio station in Detroit, Mich.

HISTORY OF THE HORNET

The Green Hornet was one of the first superheroes in America. Before either Superman or Batman put on their capes, The Hornet was fighting bad guys. By day, he was newspaper owner Britt Reid. By night, Reid became The Green Hornet and fought crime. He stopped bad guys with help from his Japanese partner, Kato. The two drove a car that buzzed like a hornet.

In 1936 The Green Hornet drama first played on the radio. The show was so popular that it became a comic book series starting in 1940. The Hornet's fame continued years later when he got his own TV series in 1966. And now this month, The Green Hornet stars in his own movie. What better birthday gift could there be?
