- This story features an expanded version of Kid Colt's origins originally presented in Kid Colt: Hero of the West #1. However the end of the story is presented differently. In the original version, Kid Colt guns down the sheriff in his office and Whip in the streets after he murdered Gabby. In this version Kid Colt locks Whip in the local jail, forces the sheriff to fight it out outside of town. Whip escapes and attacks Kid Colt, but is saved by Gabby. The sheriff then guns down both Gabby and Whip. Kid Colt then knocks the sheriff off a cliff in a fist fight, instead of gunning him down. It also includes that added plot point that Kid Colt was taught to shoot by his brother Slim, who was killed in a gunfight. When Colt shows off his shooting prowess he kills a puma, instead of a rattler as depicted in the original telling.
