(MCP#116/4): The villainous John Baker lured Two-Gun Kid into a trap at Devil's Cauldron. His Unlucky Thirteen Gang was ready and they gave anything and they all died doing so. One of the Unlucky Thirteen gang was able to hit Two-Gun Kid in the leg, but he died as well. The only one left was Baker himself and he lost his revolver. Two-Gun threatened him with his guns and Baker didn't take up his revolver again. He went with Two-Gun Kid through the desert. Once he fell down and threw sand into Two-Gun Kid's face. He got the guns of his foe, but Two-Gun wasn't afraid and just punched him out. Baker didn't resist the rest of the way to Tombstone and went directly into the first opened cell. The Sheriff laughed when he heard that Baker didn't realized that Two-Gun Kid was out of ammo after he had killed the other twelve members of the Unlucky Thirteen Gang.




Comments: Created by Dan Slott & Gil Kane

    You're the leader of a gang consisting of thirteen people including you. A guy with two guns, which each carry six bullets, kills everyone except you. What do you do?
I think Baker never passed the first grade.
