The Lone Ranger has come to be known as an enduring icon of American Culture. The fictional masked Texas ranger, also nicknamed "Kemosabe," fought outlaws alongside his Native American friend, Tonto, and his stallion Silver. The identity of the Lone Ranger is meant to be anonymous, in order for the listener to create a hero from the identity that his actions create. This could be one of the reasons that the mediaâs identity of the Lone Ranger has not changed. Not only is the Lone Ranger one of the oldest western icons in the US, but his legacy has been developed over 80 years, into a heroic identity.
Starting with a radio that show lasted until 1954, The Lone Ranger featured an impressive collection of 2,956 episodes, and had already paved the way for the TV series beginning in 1949 that lasted until 1957. The legend of the Lone Ranger has been retold in various movies ranging from 1956 to 2013, deeming its stories some of the most popular in the entertainment industry.
The Lone Ranger remains one of the most significant stories of the American West. The character is viewed as a hero to many for his bravery and honorable consideration for mankind.
