When the launch of Dynamite's "The Green Hornet Strikes!" was first announced, there were many who were wondering if Dynamite was trying to squeeze too much too soon out of the franchise. However, writer Brett Matthews has quickly put these fears to rest with a fantastic tale of a futuristic Hornet. Of course, the plot thickens when the original Hornet is seen sharing all the history and secrets of the character to a big shot in the Chicago mob and puzzlingly declares he is the last Green Hornet alive.

IF YOU FIND the idea of Seth Rogen as a crime-fighting superhero to be ridiculous, you have company - so does "Green Hornet" director Michel Gondry. Gondry's completely facetious action romp trades in Rogen's comic persona of sloth, arrested development and underachievement - Rogen's been an incompetent stockroom worker ("40-Year-Old Virgin"), web designer ("Knocked Up"), pornographer ("Zack and Miri Make a Porno"), police officer ("Superbad") and security officer ("Observe and Report")

Last month, when the Green Hornets marching band strutted its stuff at a civic ceremony, members were wearing blue-and-white uniforms with gold trim, not their trademark green-and-white. Why? Because, said Tony Cooper, the group's director, "we got a great deal earlier this summer on band uniforms from Springfield High School. So now, when we march in the blue uniforms, with the letters SHS on them, we call ourselves the Swingin Hornets Steppers instead of the Green Hornets. " It's that kind of inventiveness that has enabled the Green Hornets (their official name is now the Swingin Green Hornets Steppers Marching Band)

Dean Jeffries, 80, a legendary auto customizer who was one of the first hot rodders to chop, channel, and soup-up automobiles during the car-crazy 1950s in Southern California, died May 4. He had been in declining health, and his death was confirmed by his son, Kevin. Mr. Jeffries was an automotive jack-of-all-trades, working as a stuntman, car builder, and race-car painter and pinstriper. Mr. Jeffries' distinctive paint jobs and sculpted bodywork attracted many admirers to his auto shop, including the likes of James Dean, Steve McQueen, and A.J. Foyt.

Michel Gondry, the imaginative maker of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind , The Science of Sleep , and Be Kind Rewind , makes whimsical, rueful movies about losers who find themselves in their fantasies. Hiring this sensitive fantasist to make the superhero saga The Green Hornet is like hiring satirist John Waters to make Rambo . Hard to think of a more mystifying mismatch of filmmaker and material. Seth Rogen cowrote and costars in the movie that aims for irreverence and settles for irrelevance.

YOU CAN RENT either "The Green Hornet" or "The Dilemma" this week, but if you rent both, you get enough laughs for one movie. "Hornet" is Michel Gondry's facetious take on the superhero genre, with Seth Rogen as the masked man, a playboy who decides to fight crime with the "help" of an Asian sidekick. Gondry's running joke is to have the sidekick be the actual brains/brawn of the operation. There are some inspired sequences (Rogen tries to master the gas gun), but the gags are stretched thin.
