Despite recent events and the heavy guilt carried by Britt Reid, the Green Hornet and Kato manage to put the final pieces of the hero’s plan into action and deal a massive blow to crime in the city. Choosing to fake the Hornet’s death as well, Reid is prepared to close the chapter on the vigilante masquerading as a crime boss forever, but things don’t quite work out as planned.
Wrapping up quite a bit, including making sure Lieutenant Dugan goes down for the murder of his wife, while forcing the Hornet to continue to deal with the guilt surrounding his unintentional role in the murder of Fulton’s daughter, writer Mark Waid still leaves the final fate of both Britt Reid and the Green Hornet to be decided heading into next month’s final issue of the series. Someone has obviously discovered the Hornet’s true identity but we’ll have to wait a month to discover who is responsible for stealing the costumes of Green Hornet and Kato and what exactly they have in mind for the newspaperman turned vigilante. Worth a look.
