Although not directly a part of the DC Universe, Van Williams, better known to comic fans as the man that portrayed The Green Hornet in the 1966 TV Series, passed away today at the age of 82. He apparently passed away due to renal failure.
The Green Hornet character popped up in The DC Universe when Mr. Williams and Bruce Lee guest starred in the Batman ’66 2-Part crossover episode “A Piece of The Action/Batman’s Satisfaction”.
If you have not seen the episodes or want to see them again, and have MeTV, this Saturday night as a part of their Super Sci-Fi Saturday Night, they will be broadcasting both episodes as a tribute to the man that inspired so many Green Hornet stories.
Rest In Peace, Mr. Williams. Lost In The DC Multiverse hopes you are finally reunited with Kato.
