Set during the early 1940s in the city of Chicago, Green Hornet is the story of a hero who stands up against crime and corruption plaguing his city. By day, Britt Reid is the publisher of the Daily Sentinel. At night, he roams the mean streets of Chicago, disguising himself as the Green Hornet. However, Britt Reid is no ordinary hero. While other alter egos fight for the side of good, Green Hornet pretends to be a criminal, gaining the respect of Chicago’s shady underworld. Britt then uses his connections with the Green Hornet to expose criminals and corrupt officials through the Daily Sentinel.
