History: (Incredible Hulk II#417)- For the bachelorette party held for Marlo Chandler prior to her wedding to Rick Jones, She-Hulk brought her to a Chippendale's strip bar, where Marlo and the other ladies were entertained by the Barehide Kid. Betty Banner and Mrs. Chandler forced Marlo on to the stage to dance with the Barehide Kid as he removed his clothes. The partying was briefly interrupted by a gang of gunmen come to rob the bar's patrons, but the Invisible Woman used a force field to halt one of their bullets from hitting Marlo and the Barehide Kid. The assemebled super-women then proceeded to defeat the gunmen.

Comments: Created by Peter David, Gary Frank and Cam Smith.

Of course, if we're to believe Ron Zimmerman's Rawhide Kid: Slap Leather!, the Barehide Kid should really have been performing at a gay bar if he wants to emulate the Rawhide Kid. Then again, maybe he's gay too.

For some reason, I think it would be funny for Outlaw (from Deadpool and Agent X) to catch the Barehide Kid's show.
