Zorro is a fictional hero with fast sword skills living during Mexico and Spanish California hacienda culture. The inspiration for Zorro is thought to be Baroness Orczy's The Scarlet Pimpernel and Zorro is thought to have been the inspiration for such human pulp heroes as Batman, The Phantom, and Green Arrow. Zorro (Spanish for Fox, and a by-word for cunning or devious) is the superhero secret identity of Don Diego de la Vega. He has many fox like characteristics most importantly he is cunning and cannot be caught.
