Synopsis for "Menace on Main Street!"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Outlaw Kid #18.

The Outlaw Kid spots some rough looking characters dragging Mr. Warren into the office of his newspaper the Clarion and begin wrecking the equipment. The Kid steps in and stops the vandalism and sends them packing. When asking Warren why they were wrecking his presses, the newspaper man gives the Kid some newspaper clippings and asks him judge for himself. The Kid returns to his father's ranch and resumes his alter-ego of Lance Temple. There he looks over the clippings and realizes that every time Mr. Warren wrote an article scrutinizing a rancher named Matt Baker, he received an anonymous threat up until the day of the attack, and decides that Baker needs investigation.

Later that evening, Lance changes into the Outlaw Kid and goes out to Matt Baker's ranch and recognizes one of the horses tied up outside the house as one ridden by the men who wrecked the Clarion presses that morning and realizes that Baker is involved. Riding back into town, the Kid reveals this to Mr. Warren and tells him to spread the word that he is putting out a special edition paper all about Matt Baker the following morning. The next afternoon, news reaches Matt Baker and he orders his men to destroy the Clarion office before the paper can be published. That night, the gang rides out and tosses a bundle of explosives into the Clarion office, destroying it.

However it is a trap set by the Outlaw Kid who has gathered a posse to round up the g gang. The Kid then reveals that they moved the printing press into the blacksmith shop so that the special edition could be published without interference. The following morning the paper is released and the evidence in it leads to Matt Baker's arrest.

Hearing that the Crystal Palace is crooked, the Outlaw Kid confronts it's own Mr. Travis who insists that it is a legitimate business. When the Kid insists to the contrary, Travis tells his men to deal with him, but the Kid is a faster draw and shoots the guns out of their hands. The Kid then tells Travis that he is going to spread the word around Caliber City about his crooked gambling operation, and leaves.

However this does not discourage Travis who decides to ruin the Outlaw Kid's reputation before he can ruin his. Soon a rash of robberies are perpetuated by someone who appears to be the Outlaw Kid. However this is in reality one of Travis' men, and soon the smear campaign works as the Outlaw Kid becomes a wanted man.

Stuck in his civilian guise of Lance Temple due to the law being after him, the Kid is impressed when he hears Belle defending his record in light of the current accusations. This faith in the Outlaw Kid convinces Lance that he can't give up and has to go back into his identity of the Outlaw Kid to clear his name. Slipping behind the casino, Lance changes into the Outlaw Kid and spies into a window. He overhears Travis telling his man to pose as the Outlaw Kid again and commit one more crime. The Kid hears the entire plot and comes crashing in and easily takes Travis and his men, turning them over to the authorities and clearing his name.
