Synopsis for "At the Mercy of Wolf Waco!"

The Two-Gun Kid rides into the town of Lone Pine to find the locals in a panic now that Fast Draw Gang leader, Wolf Waco, is shooting up the town. The Kid goes into the local saloon where he finds Waco is shooting up the saloon and challenging anyone to try and stop him.

The Kid steps forward and the two fight it out. When Waco starts shooting the Kid takes cover behind the bar. The Kid distracts him by throwing a bottle over the bar and charging Waco. The two brawl but the battle is quickly ended when Waco tosses a lamp causing a fire that begins to spread quickly. While Waco flees the blazing inferno, the Kid goes deeper into the fire to rescue a boy trapped upstairs. The Kid gets the boy out but his hands are horribly burned. When he is treated by the local doctor, he tells the Kid that he cannot use his hands for a few weeks while they heal. Overhearing this is Wolf Waco, who threatens to kill the doctor if the Kid does not agree to go along with him and pretend to be helping him run the town, forcing the Kid to wear gloves to cover up his wounded hands, getting the doctor to check his hands periodically intending to kill the Kid before his hands can heal.

However the doctor double crosses Wolf Waco, convincing him that the Kid's hands are still wounded. When the Kid realizes that his hands have fully healed, he finally stands up to Waco during the train robbery. Easily trouncing Waco in a fight, Wolf asks him why the doctor double crossed him and the Kid explains that the boy he saved in the fire was the doctors son.

Reprint of the 1st story from
Outlaw Kid #6
(originally printed as Outlaw Kid)

An outlaw named Stacy and his gang attempt to enter Caliber City and find the Outlaw Kid blocking their path, after some gunplay with the criminals, the Outlaw Kid sends them packing. Later returning to his alter-ego of Lance Temple, the Outlaw Kid hears of his latest exploits from his father and girlfriend Belle Taylor. Belle brags about how she knows the Outlaw Kid, and Lance tries to warn her that making such boasts could lead her to trouble with the Kid's many enemies. Insulted, Belle storms off and goes into town where she brags to the locals about her interactions with the Outlaw Kid. One of Stacey's who is in town hears this and decides to report this bit of information back to his boss.

Later, Lance has patched things up with Belle and the pair are out riding together when suddenly they are surrounded by Stacey and his men. Demanding that she tell them where to find the Outlaw Kid, Stacy and his men take her prisoner when they learn she has no clue where the hero hides out. As they leave they push Lance off his horse and tell him to get the Outlaw Kid and have him meet them at Eagle Pass alone.

Lance rushes off to change into the Outlaw Kid and on his way to Eagle Pass that night he comes across a posse sent out to search for Belle by her father and tells them to let him handle things on their own. Guarding the only path up to the top of Eagle Pass, Stacy and his men believe that they have a trap set for the Outlaw Kid, but the hero manages to climb up the opposite side of the pass and gets the drop on them, taking each member of the gang out silently one by one. The Kid then easily dispatches Stacey and his men and rescues Belle.

The next evening, Belle pays a visit to the Temple ranch where she tells Lance and Zane how the Outlaw Kid came to her rescue and wonders if the masked hero might like her.
