Synopsis for "The Man Behind the Guns!"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Outlaw Kid #10.

The Outlaw Kid spots an explosion at the payroll office of the Silver Nugget Mine. Going to aid those caught in the blast the Kid rescues a foreman who tells him that they were robbed by a gang of professional who did not talk much during the process of their robbery. Leaving the injured foreman in the care of the other miners, the Outlaw Kid rushes into town knowing there will be trouble after this latest robbery.

Changing into his alter-ego of Lance Temple, the Kid comes across an angry mob that demand that the sheriff capture the robbers or resign his post. However the angry mob is appeased and sent away by the cool head of Mr. Madding a local well-to-do businessman who convinces them that they should give the sheriff a chance. While the sheriff is grateful for the support, Lance finds Madding's slick talk as suspicious.

That night Lance changes back into the Outlaw Kid and heads to Madding's ranch to spy on the property. He notices a number of rough looking characters slowly riding in to the house. Listening in outside a window the Kid hears Madding instructing the men on his next job when they begin arguing over how much Madding is getting paid for his information. When the Kid steps on a branch, it snaps revealing his location to a sentry. The Kid fights off the sentry and this causes the men inside to try and take the stolen loot from Madding.

Madding instead grabs a gun and holds them off until he can escape with the stolen loot. The Outlaw Kid races after Madding and captures him. The next day Lance Temple is in town and he learns from the sheriff that the rest of the gang was rounded up and wonders how the Outlaw Kid could have suspected Madding as the ringleader of the gang.

While out on the range the Outlaw Kid comes across a mountain lion being attacked by a pack of wolves. The Kid risks his life sending the wolves fleeing and waits for a moment to see if the proud mountain lion will attack him, but the creature scurries off into the night instead.

On his way back to the ranch he shares with his father the Outlaw Kid suddenly hears gun shots and rides to their source. He finds the sheriff and his posse and learns that they are on the trail of Ace Carey who managed to jump his guard on his way to jail and escape. The Kid offers to help and they continue on Ace's trail, but it soon gets dark making the manhunt more dangerous than ever. Ace manages to ambush them, pinning them down in the dark and unable to see where he is shooting from. Knowing the terrain like the back of his hand, the Outlaw Kid volunteers to go out looking for Ace alone.

Searching around the area, the Outlaw Kid is surprised when Ace manages to get the drop on him, but before the outlaw can fire his gun the mountain lion that the Kid rescued earlier pounces on him. When Ace begs for the Outlaw Kid to kill the big cat, he refuses and Ace surrenders to him. The mountain lion, having repayed it's debt to the Outlaw Kid then scurries off into the night.
