Green Hornet #2

Although they initially mistake the strange being in front of them for an alien, and the creature does everything in its power to force that assumption, Britt Reid and Kato discover the creature before them to be a British astronaut transformed through his reintroduction to Earth's atmosphere as his secret space station was destroyed by a passing spaceship.

Seeking answers and revenge on the pilot of the spacecraft that led both to his transformation and the death of his fellow astronaut, the creature is in no mood for the Green Hornet's attempt at an olive branch demanding answers and the location of the pilot who he blames for his current condition.

While the astronaut may not have proven to be an alien, there is the question about the identity of the pilot who crashed to Earth and the location of both the mysterious baby and the Sentinel's missing reporter. Those questions lead the Green Hornet and Kato to Area 51 in a solid second issue of 50s pulp science fiction.
