Storyline

While making its nighttime rounds, a Daily Sentinel delivery truck is fired on by an imposter Green Hornet, driving an exact duplicate of the Black Beauty. Attacks on the paper's employees continue throughout the night; it appears someone has declared war on the Sentinel. Britt Reid is soon contacted by Dan Scully, a reporter for the rival Daily Express paper, claiming that his boss Sabrina is out to destroy the Sentinel using any means necessary. That goal seems close to fulfillment when Reid attends a party of Daily Express publisher Simon Neal's. As he and Neal stand outside, the Green Hornet poser drives up, announces his intentions to kill Britt Reid, and fires his gun. Written by Twenty Penguins
