    The idea of self-"demotion" down to Kato would be interesting. I say that in quotes because I understand most GH fans hold Kato as equal if not better a fighter than GH.

Could be an interesting turn of events if it happens.
    Or, if Dynamite wanted to have fun, Britt Jr. could take a new identity: The Crimson Wasp!

    For those who don't know,


    NOW Comics had featured a female Kato back in the 1990's, named Mishi Kato, who was the daughter of the original Kato. However, when the Green Hornet, Inc. (who NOW was licensing the characters from) eventually wanted the comics to go back to the previous (male) Kato, NOW later made Mishi into "The Crimson Wasp".

    Looking at that Crimson Wasp now(no pun intended) for the first time in a long long time makes me think the look is inspired by DC's Katana somewhat.

    I would love for those NOW issues to be collected in a nice format, OHC is my preference. It is a nice run of issues something like 50-60 including a mini-series or two.

    They'd probably have to come up with a new costume for him, though.

Clutch, the mechanic(think Harold from 90s Batman run but hipper), gives Mulan grief for bringing Black Beauty 2.0 back so banged up.
    In the comic book, it's referred to as "Black Beauty 3.0".
    I'm assuming the original from 1930s/1940s or the 1960s would be the first one, then "2.0" would be which ever version Mulan was driving back when she was Kato?

    Also, why are they bothering with masks and "secret identities"?
    It was bad enough that Kato's code-name was . . . "Kato", but during the battle with the thugs he called "Green Hornet" by her real name of Mulan, and she later referred to Kato as "Dad" in front of a thug and the police.

    What's up with that? I thought Mulan was suppose to be focusing on preserving a presence by the Green Hornet in Century City?

    For some ungodly reason, they gave that character the name "Sebastian Cabot". REALLY???

    My guess about the Kato-type outfit is that Britt had been in disguise as the chauffer that picked up Mulan and Tai at the airport in Istanbul. (We saw him from behind in that one panel, but we also caught a glimpse of him in the rearview mirror in that same panel.)

    As for my overall opinion, I'm still not thrilled with the writing or the artwork. I'll give it another issue or three before I decide on staying with it long-term or dropping this.
