Kid Colt Outlaw 34
A few men had been tracking down Colt for months as he had killed their brother. I mean I feel bad for them, but it’s not like Colt kills for fun. He probably felt a little bad himself, but he still shot and killed them. One shot however did not come from the brothers, but a bar. Luckily for the shooter Colt didn’t notice. His companion stopped him from letting off more rounds, warning him that Colt was too good. The shooter complained that they both wanted him dead, as Colt was siding with the ‘valley nestlers’ against him.
The man, who is called El Tigre, tells his men that they need the valley to bring their stolen cattle through, and the people in the valley make it difficult. His men reply they know this, which I think is humorous. In fact this villain is pretty funny, if you ignore the written out Mexican accent. He contiunes talking to his men, saying the valley people are strong, and killing Colt may make them band together against them.
While Colt rides through the town he finds out that a bullet had killed a child during his battle with the brothers, and he blames himself. He swears never to carry a gun again, and the valley people turn from him for bringing this violence. Later the kid wakes up, as he had only passed out from a minor wound. El Tigre is the first to find out he is not dead, and forms a plan.
He hides the fact the kid is alive, and when Colt comes into town to gather supplies and try to figure out what he’s going to do now the men strike. Filed with anger, and unarmed he lets loose his fists, fighting like a madman to keep them from their guns. He manages to win, and the news of him not wearing his guns spread. The father of the injured child, having been threatened by Tigre is hiding his boy, who gives him a sound talking to about leaving Colt in danger and letting him feel so guilty.
Soon the man rides out, and tells Colt the truth. And Colt makes a speech about each man having an art as he picks up his guns. He rides to El Tigre’s place and shoots down all the men there before hitting the road once more.
Again we jump right into the action, Colt is in a gunfight with a group of Apaches, and it looks as though he has another on his side. As their enemies flee Colt drags his injured companion into the shade. He is apparently a deputy, and now the flashback begins. He is riding along, and notes their are signs of rouge Apaches in the area, and that he thought he had shook his tail; a man named Jake Macklin.
As he thinks this a young man, a boy really steps out and has Colt at gun point. He is unimpressed and kicks the pistol out of the deputy sheriff’s hands. Backing up slowly Colt intends to leave, but Steel is startled by a rattler and spooks, giving the boy a chance to grab for his fallen weapon. Without thinking Colt lets off a round, and the boy goes down. Seeing another sign of the Apaches, and not sure how hurt the deputy was he returns from riding off to check on him.
Just as the boy tries to attack Colt the Apaches arrive and we are where we began. The deputy awakens and starts talking about how someone had said the Colt was square, but he hadn’t believed them. Colt fixed up his wound, and finds out the man who had been talking good about him was the boy’s dad, (Jake Macklin) who was a sheriff in a town over run by a man named Blackie and his gang. While they speak Jake comes in the cave they are hiding in. he says that though though he hates to do it, Colt is an outlaw, and he must bring him in.
With a quick movements Colt manages to get away, and now Jake and his son are in real danger, as Blackie has the sheriff at gunpoint. Riding away Colt hears shots and turns back, finding the deputy who tells how Blackie had shot his father and he was going to get revenge. Knowing the boy was still too hurt to risk such things Colt goes for him instead. Together they shoot the foul man and the boy becomes the new Sheriff.
Black Rider “Whip vs Gun”
The Black Rider costume has changed again. Last time it was a hood with eyes cut out, and we previously had a cloth just hanging down the lower half of his face. Now it is a combination of the two. Pics on Tumblr as always.
Black Rider comes across a man, whipped and flayed nearly to death, and while helping him asks who had done this to the man. It was a man known as Whip Ward, and the injured man had found his stealing his cattle. I assume he confronted Ward, but it doesn’t say. He takes him to Doc Master’s place, and then leaves to find the doctor. Though half of him wants to go after Ward he knows it is more important to fix up the poor man.
We skip to later in the day, when Doc himself gains the wrath of Whip Ward. Ward had seen Doc talking with Marie, and wanted her for himself. So he knocks of Doc’s hat, and lashes around his ankles so he falls over. Then he uses his whip to loop around Marie and pull her towards him (Like Indiana Jones, but an ass). For once Doc stands up and gets in the guy’s face, and then pushes Ward to the ground. Then Marie protects Doc by being a shield for him and they head back to Doc’s place and she says she’s proud of him.
As soon as she leaves he changes clothing and becomes the Black Rider. He comes across Whip Ward in the saloon, and he doesn’t seem happy to see the famous lawman. As the whip flashes out to hit the Rider he shoots bits off the leather, again and again. Mocking him Black Rider allows him to lash around his guns, and then pulls the whip out of his hands via the guns, and the enemy pulls out their own firearms. Black Rider laughs at them, and cleanly shoots them down.
Alright, so Colt is about to swing. He has been accused of rustling, there is an eyewitness and he’s already a wanted man so they didn’t bother to give him a trail. The men are justifiably angry about their herds being stolen, but Colt says it wasn’t him. The horse beneath him moves, but a split second before it left a bullet breaks the rope and the steed takes off with him. He manages to free his hands and plans to go back to ask the witness why he had lied. He almost runs into a woman as he wonders who saved him.
He stops to help her up, and stunned by her beauty, kisses her. Then he rides off. On the way back to town he finds cattle tracks that aren’t on the usual paths and follows them to the rustler’s hideout. He sneaks in, but when he sees the man who said he had seen Colt rustling he steps out and yells at him for a bit. Then the woman comes in, and Colt tells he’s gonna turn her brother (that’s who the guy is) in.
First she says no one would believe it, it couldn’t be proven. Then her brother gains a spine and says they are stolen so of course it could be proven! She acts ashamed of him, but he scoffs, telling her not to lie. She had made him, he had always done whatever she wanted. She then pulls out a gun and planned to kill both of the men. She tells Colt that she told the townsfolk where he was, to take suspicion off of her. Colt asks if they knew who saved him (still at gunpoint guys…) and the brother says he did, as he couldn’t stand to have an innocent man hung.
See he’d killed a man by accident once, and she had held it over him for a long time. He tells her he’s through taking orders and charges her. She shoots, but it’s a flesh wound. Taking advantage of her distraction Colt steals her gun and ties her up. He tells the brother to turn her in, and that the law would go soft on him. Then Colt rides off to his next adventure.
