(Kid Colt, Outlaw#102/5)- On Kid Colt's 17th birthday, Orville Jones waltzed in telling Kid Colt that he wanted to have a shoot out with him. Kid Colt accepted the challenge, and as the fight began, some of the townsfolk realized that Orville Jones was the hypnotist that hypnotized his opponents. They were unable to warn Kid Colt and Jones started the shoot out. Everyone was surprised when Kid colt shot the guns from Orville's hands. Kid Colt then told everyone that his father taught him to look at a man's hands instead of his face and that's why Kid Colt won the shoot out.
Comments: Created by Stan Lee (writer) and Jack Keller (pencils & inks).
I think the Orb should be revealed to be Orville Jones' descendant.
This tale was reprinted in Gunslingers#1 (February, 2000), which is where the images are from.
