How would you GIVE them that other chance though?

Would you dare to reboot the character and hope for success that other franchises such as TMNT or Archie have had? Or would you just bring about a new direction entirely?

It's easy to mention an obscure/forgotten character and say that they should get an ongoing but it's a completely different thing to actually give an idea on what that ongoing should be about

It's perfectly entertaining, and the action is actually pretty good for a comedy.

Also there's no way to unironically update Green Hornet for modern day. He's just a guy in a nice suit with a sidekick and a couple gadgets, there's nothing unique about him that could grab people these days.

Making a goofy comedy was at least a distinct direction to take the characters.

Having a Dynamite book is as good as dead.
>>
>>79049203
I mean, it's mostly because he was one of the FIRST comic books heroes so he kinda defined how superheroes should look, together with Golden Bat from Japan (pic related).
Like, his costume is super basic, it's just purple tights with underwear on the outside, and a domino mask. That's it. It's most barebones a superhero can get. Back then it was innovative, but it was 70 years - nearly a century - ago.
