Sufficient protection for all: Radio fans couldn’t see Green Hornet’s mask in the original broadcasts (duh!). But he was protectively masked, as he sanitized the bad guys in Green Hornet Comics #38 (March 1948) © 2020 Green Hornet, Inc. Best of the West #5 (October 1952) featured three protectively masked characters on the cover: Tim Holt, The Ghost Rider, and The Durango Kid. (Holt doesn’t wear a mask in the story, mind you.) © 2020 MARVEL.
