(Death's Head I #5 (fb) - BTS) - At some point, Colt, Keepsake, and Thea accidentally discovered a shipment of gold bullion aboard an old cruiser that had sunk to the bottom of the sea. With none of them trusting any of the others, Colt demanded that Keepsake split up the map to the treasure, giving each a third of the way there. When Colt was arrested and put in prison later on, Keepsake was prevented from finding the treasure by himself.

(Death's Head I #5 (fb) - BTS) - Colt was released from of prison.

(Death's Head I #5) - Colt met with Keepsake and his girlfriend, Bahlia, at Huggy's bar, hoping to get Keepsake's part of the map. He even ordered his band of thugs to stand by and seize the couple should the opportunity and the need arise. Just as Keepsake showed his half of the map, Colt pulled a blaster on him, demanding Keepsake's map piece, even as his men came out and took Bahlia hostage. Unbeknownst to Colt, Death's Head and Keepsake's wife, Thea, arrived at Huggy's, together deciding to get Colt. Colt had already gone off to sea in his boat with one of his henchmen and their hostage, Bahlia. Pooling their resources and map pieces, they uncovered the treasure, though their joy was short lived when Death's Head and Thea arrived in another boat. Bahlia used this temporary distraction to bludgeon Colt's henchman with a hook. Before Colt could act, Death's Head heaved his heavy robotic form on to Colt's fragile vessel, rupturing it in the process. Now trying to fix the boat in a panic, Colt didn't notice how Bahlia attached a grappling hook from Keepsake airplane to the treasure, mounting it and flying off. As the flying vehicle left Colt behind, Keepsake offered Death's Head half of the gold to push Thea into the water. Death's Head did, leaving both Colt and Thea in a broken boat cursing each other.

Colt has no known connections to


    Erin was one of Colt's henchmen. He was tasked with restraining Colt's prisoner Bahlia and taking her car. While at the docks with Hank and another henchman, he was approached by Thea who planned to distract him while Death's Head mounted a surprise attack. Thea dealt with Erin by kicking him in his genitals, shouting "I hope you already got a family!"

Note: There's a little confusion as to his true name. At one point, Colt called him "Duke" when he ordered him to get his car. Later, another henchmen referred to him as "Erin".

    Hank was another of Colt's henchmen. He was taken out by Death's Head during a surprise attack in the harbor. The mercenary burst through the wooden boardwalk, grabbing Hank's leg and pulling him into the sea.

    Lorne appeared to be Colt's right hand man, assisting him in threatening Keepsake even as the others took Bahlia hostage. Joined by Colt and their hostage, Lorne boarded a small boat to search for the hidden gold bullion on the bottom of the sea. When they were attacked by Death's Head and Thea in their own motor boat, Lorne fired his blaster at their ship, sinking it. But even as Thea was rescued by Keepsake, who appeared piloting an aircraft, Lorne's hostage, Bahlia, took advantage of the plane's appearance and bludgeoned Lorne, who was tossed overboard.

    One of two unidentified henchmen of Colt. While on the docks he fell victim to Death's Head surprise attack, the cybernetic mercenary hitting him on the chin.

Comments: This guys bears a close resemblance to Italian comics character RanXerox (Google it, but don't be surprised when a number of the images you find contain nudity--Snood). I assume it's an in-joke.--ShadZ


    The second of the two unidentified henchmen of Colt was only seen with the others as they threatened Keepsake and took Bahlia hostage.
