Crossover Covers: The Lone Ranger: The Death of Zorro

In 1870, a band of ex-Confederate soldiers take over a Chumash Indian mission and institute a reign of terror upon the natives. An aging Don Diego de la Vega comes out of retirement and becomes Zorro once again to defeat them. However, the leader of the renegades shoots him in the back. The Lone Ranger and Tonto set out to avenge his death with the aid of Zorro’s onetime allies La Justicia. La Justicia is from Isabel Allende’s novel Zorro, a re-imagining of the legend. This story does not fit with the circumstances of Don Diego’s death in the movie The Mask of Zorro. In addition, Don Diego was born in 1771 in the CU, which would make him 99 years old at the time of this story, though he appears much younger. Therefore, I have placed this series in an alternate universe.
