The city is faced with rising crime and increased racketeering activity. Intrepid newspaper editor, Britt Reid becomes the crime fighter the Green Hornet to take on the bad guys. As far as the police are concerned, the Hornet himself is the criminal. This misunderstanding enables Reid to operate 'outside the law' to battle evil and injustice. Working along side the Hornet is the brilliant inventor/sidekick Kato, the only person who knows the true identity of the Hornet.
