I am NOT the Riddler!

Post by GMartin58 »

So every time I go out in public as the GH...I get large number of younger people calling me, The Riddler! I was watching the 1940's serial where the GH leaves his seal behind so I took that as inspiration and made up these cards to hand out. So now when someone calls me "The Riddler" I just hand them a card. I've included a bit of history on the back.

I borrowed the art work...not sure which one of you did it but it's fantastic! If you're interested, let me know and I'll be glad to share the files. Local print shop did 100 on card stock for about $35!

Great idea!

It is one of the aggravating things about cosplay. You anticipate all the things you know people are going to shout at you. ;)

That's awesome. You might consider including some contact information for yourself in case a cosplay photographer or fan wants to include you in a video or make photos available. Maybe you could create a separate email such as "GMCosplay" or "LRK" (Let's Roll Kato). Just a thought.

You might consider something like these pins to give to people too. I have a couple of sets of 1966 Batman pins that I bought for that purpose.

I watched some of the 1940s serial recently, and noticed that GH was able to gas the bad guys from 10 - 15 feet away, while the TV version had to be within a few feet. I often wondered why he didn't have a gas grenade he could toss into the crook's lair, or launch from the Black Beauty to take out the bad guys.

I thought about adding an email but didn't want to have my personal info out there...didn't think of a different address. Next Time!!

This 2018 Green Hornet Fan film employed the exact concept that you suggested. They took the old concept of the gas gun and modernized it.

A little too R-rated for my taste, but yeah, he should have multiple weapons. Made GH look like a skilled fighter, which I liked, except he left his DNA (blood) all over the crime scene.
