Heir to the LuxArn fortune, Matthew Arnold’s company provides illumination for cities around the world, but it’s his blazing brass mask that burns away the darkness in Beacon City. A former soldier, Arnold discovered he was a natural at waging war, and upon returning home he took up the role of Beacon City’s seemingly immortal protector, the Brass Lantern. In a world where insurance companies own the police and the uninsured have no recourse, Matthew Arnold fights for those who cannot fight for themselves, pitting his guns against the forces of John Countryman, the wickedest man alive. His fiance, Elaina Dare, is the only living person to know the secret of Arnold's dual identity. Blinding light. Blazing guns. Nerves of steel and a mask of brass, crime has nowhere to hide from the beacon of justice-- THE BRASS LANTERN

What a Real Hero Should Be.
If you're sick of all the modern-day superhero crap than this podcast is for you. It's what Batman is supposed to be but isn't. The Brass Lantern isn't tying up the criminals for the police to find, he's making sure they are done for good. He's the hero we need AND deserve.
Old time radio show, simply perfect
This is the kind of radio show that I’ve been missing in my life. Action and drama rolled up into an exciting show.
Disappointed with the tone of the voices.
This episode has AN EXCELLENT production, plot, and dialogue, but lacks attitude. (For example) John Countryman’s voice comes across as too bland for a narcissistic, super villain antagonist. I believe changes to the tone of voice of the characters ( both minor and major alike) could make the work MUCH more robust and add an extra layer of depth to the plot and that making the dialogue more “tonally fluid” would be make a world of difference, especially in setting the mood of future episodes.
