From the Archives: Why the Green Man?

Before he was the Green Man, the Green Man, then an international playboy, was good friends with a crusading anti-mob attorney. On holiday in England, the 'plane they were flying was destroyed by a bomb planted by the mob. The attorney and his wife were killed, together with the girl the Green Man was with. The only survivor, the Green Man stumbled into a church, passing out in the porch. As darkness claimed him, he saw a carving of the green man, an ancient symbol of rebirth. In that instant, the Green Man was born...

The Green Man wears a dark green trenchcoat, green hat, mask, scarf and boots in tribute to his namesake, the Green Man.

And now we know the secret origin of the Green Man! His colour co-ordination impresses me. Green and Grey, what a combination we'd make!

Is that a proposition?

From whence comes the mysterious Girl in Grey? Is she a depressive?

The Green Man said...

I wish I knew. Tell you after the date.

Who knows where I come from? I do, but I'm not telling! And Green Man, I'd fight crime with you ANY time. *flutters eyelashes*

So he was reborn as it were, on the ashes of everyone elses' former self.

And from the fires of vengeance.

Convinced that he should have died, the Green Man vowed to spend his strength and wealth in bringing doom upon the wicked.
