Synopsis for "Kid Colt Outlaw"

After two years of hunting Marshal Frosty Dance, a honorably law man, had finally caught up with Kid Colt, getting the drop on the outlaw while he was sleeping. Kid Colt agrees to go peacefully and is handcuffed and put on his horse. As the arrest is happening a storm begins to come at them full force. Riding along a tight mountain pass, the storm causes a rock fall, and Kid Colt grabs Frosty off his horse before he can be swept off the edge with it.

Riding double until the storm dies down, Frosty decides that they need to stop for a rest. Kid Colt goes to sleep, but Dance is suspicious of Kid Colt and tries to stay awake. However, when Frosty wakes up he finds that Kid Colt escaped while he nodded off. However, Kid Colt comes rushing back to warn Frosty that an Apache war party is over the rise.

Dance is surprised that Kid Colt had come back, having previously written the outlaw off as a ruthless killer. He is even more amazed when Kid Colt fights side-by-side with him to fight off the Apaches, and continues to fight even after Frosty has been struck with an arrow. Whitey's opinion of Kid Colt changes when the Kid pulls the arrow out of Dance and then rushes him back to town for medical attention. When the locals asks what happened on his hunt for Kid Colt, Frosty tells them that he didn't see him, allowing Kid Colt to slip away unnoticed. Shortly thereafter, Frosty retired from law enforcement.

Synopsis for "Black Rider"

The Black Rider is out for a ride when he hears voices arguing in a grove of trees and decides to check it out. Listening in he hears an outlaw named Carney telling one of the men he hired, named Gibbs, that there is no way out of his gang except through death.

Before Carney and his gang can shoot Gibbs, the Black Rider reveals himself and shoots some of the gang dead, but Carney manages to get a shot off and hit Gibbs. When the outlaws flee, the Black Rider rushes Gibbs back to the doctors office owned by his alter ego Matthew Masters. Changing out of his costume, Masters patches up Gibbs. Gibbs revives but is still in no shape to move around. Just then, Carney and his men arrive at Master's office to finish off the job. Without any guns, Masters is forced to let them take Gibbs away.

After they have gone, Masters changes back into the Black Rider and follows them back to their hideout. There he challenges Carney to a draw. Carney refuses unless the Black Rider agrees to use one of his guns, as he knows how well the Black Rider can use his. The Black Rider agrees and is given one of Carney's guns unaware that Carney emptied all the bullet chambers while the Black Rider wasn't looking. When it comes to draw, the Black Rider is the faster draw but finds that his gun is empty.

Before Carney can shoot the Rider, Gibbs stumbles out of the cabin with the Black Rider's guns and shoots Carney and his remaining gang members dead before passing out again. The Black Rider recovers his guns and assures Gibbs that Matthew Masters will nurse him back to health.
