Which is ironic in that the Green Hornet is a descendant of the Lone Ranger in certain continuities.
As I understand it, the established canon is this: Capt. William Reid led a posse of Texas Rangers (including his brother John) that was ambushed by the Hole-in-the-Wall Gang, or the Gang that Couldn't Shoot Straight, or whoever. All were killed except John Reid, who was wounded and left for dead. After being found and nursed back to health by Tonto, he assumed the Lone Ranger identity. Britt Reid, aka the Green Hornet, is Capt. William Reid's grandson, making him the Lone Ranger's grandnephew.

The timeline fits, with roughly two generations between the 1880s and the 1930s.

. . . The train scene remains intact, supernatural coyotes (were-coyotes?) have been cut.
Good grief! What's next -- The Lone Ranger, Vampire Hunter?
