As a big Green Hornet fan, I was very happy to see Dynamite taking on the characters and having some great writers behind it. But through three issues of the Green Hornet, two issues of Green Hornet: Year One and one issue of Kato Origins, I find myself finding a lot of mistakes and contradictions.
Kato is portrayed as Japanese, even being in the Imperial Army before WWII in Year One. But in KS's book, they speak Mandarin to each other. I'm hoping that this isn't a mistake and that he learned Mandarin while at war in China. I hope he also meets a woman there and has a child, because Mulan is not a Japanese name. At least someone special to him to name her after.
Kato is also referenced his ninja training in the Origins book (I believe). In Year One, his father is a samurai and teaches him bushido. Which is it? They sort of conflict with each other.
Little mistakes - Kato's real name in Origins is spelled two different ways- ON THE NEXT PAGE!
Frank Scanlon is up to be reelected as mayor in one issue, yet referred to as the DA in the next (his position before he became the mayor).
I want to love these books guys! Get your facts straight, it sure helps tie a universe together!
