Synopsis: The Shadow/Green Hornet: Dark Nights[]

1939: An unstoppable power will plunge the world into darkness, unless the crime-fighting icons known as The Shadow, The Green Hornet and Kato can stop it! When an invention capable of harnessing elemental forces falls into the hands of the maniacal Shiwan Khan, The Shadow races against time to prevent the utter destruction of all America's vital industries and financial institutions. To that end, he enlists The Green Hornet, a crusader masquerading as a crimelord, to infiltrate Shiwan's organization of saboteurs. Will the masked heroes prevent Khan's deadly plot to shatter a nation?
