Synopsis for "Kid Colt Outlaw"

Kid Colt is attacked by the Native American warrior named Running Creek, but despite the ambush he manages to knock Running Creek off his horse. Dismounting his own, Kid Colt challenges Running Creek to a fist fight, but Running Creek refuses to fight with anything but weapons. He explains to Kid Colt that he is out to prove that he is a better warrior than Kid Colt. Kid Colt tells him that he does not make any boasts about his abilities and minds his own business, but warns Running Creek to not cross him again or he will finish him. Running Creek and his warriors leave, but Kid Colt figures he has not seen the last of him.

That night when Kid Colt has set up camp for the evening, Running Creek attempts to kill him with an arrow. Kid Colt just barely dodges the arrow and fires into the woods. Going to look for Running Creek finds that he has been wounded but managed to get away. Elsewhere in the woods, Running Creek is having his bullet wound treated by one of his fellow braves who tells him to swear off his mad quest to best Kid Colt, but Running Creek refuses to listen.

The next morning, Kid Colt is riding once again when he finds his friend old Charlie Weaver on the road injured by an arrow shot to the shoulder. Treating his friend's wound he learns that Weaver was attacked by Running Creek for not telling the Native where to find Kid Colt. Kid Colt is now determined to stop Running Creek before anyone else is hurt and follows his trail. It takes him to a nearby rope bridge where Running Creek dismounted his horse and went by foot. Kid Colt gets off his horse and begins to cross the bridge. From underneath comes Running Creek who tries to attack Kid Colt from behind. Kid Colt ducks the arrow fired at him and engages in a fist fight with Running Creek. The battle smashes the bridge, sending the two men falling into the river below where they continue fighting each other in the rapids. Eventually, Kid Colt knocks Running Creek out and emerges from the river a victor, and leaving Running Creek to a watery grave.

Masters decides that he can't do anything but as they leave he resolves to aid the boy anyway he can as the Black Rider.

The Black Rider pays a visit to Jim and Marie Lathrop and learns that the boy was the son of a rancher named Kim Benson who mysteriously disappeared and Gus Seeley came and made the boy his ward. Realizing that the boy is the sole heir to the Benson ranch, the Black Rider begins to piece together what happened and goes to find Seeley and the Benson boy.

Meanwhile, at nearby Devil's Gorge, Seeley and one of his men have Benson and his son tied up and gives them one last chance to sign over the Benson ranch to him or they will be thrown off the gorge.
