Rebuilding American Manhood: The Green Hornet Circa 2011

The good folks at popmatters.com just published a short essay I wrote on the Green Hornet. My goal here was to contextualize the new movie within the American experience. If you have been following my recent musings, you know that I think there is a link between pulp era and contemporary superhero inspired media. This article maps some elements of that relationship through a close examination of the new Green Hornet film. As you know, I like the film, but my goal was to look beyond the surface to find a deeper meaning in the cultural foundation of the Green Hornet character.
