(Spidey Super Stories#16/2 (fb) - BTS) - Outlaw Big
Bart, disguised as Kid Colt, robbed the Dry Gulch Bank and a reward for
Kid Colt's capture was soon posted. Big Bart was keen to capture Kid
Colt for the reward.
(Spidey Super Stories#16/2) - An old blacksmith
warned Kid Colt of Big Bart's intentions, but the gunslinger was
defiant. Meanwhile, in the modern era, keen to make amends for ruining
Rita the Director's
latest movie shoot, Spider-Man used Lockjaw, the time-traveling giant
dog, to transport himself, Rita and members of her
film crew back to the Old West era (ca. 1873) to film genuine cowboys.
The group arrived just as Kid Colt mounted his horse, with the
gunslinger ending up on Lockjaw instead. Surprised, Kid Colt explained
how he had been unjustly targeted, so Rita and Spider-Man used Lockjaw
to travel back in time to the day of the bank crime. They saw the bank
robber dressed like Kid Colt run away, but Spidey and Kid Colt stopped
the thief, revealing Big Bart under the disguise. Kid Colt tied Bart to
a tree, thanking Spidey and his team as he rode off. Soon after, Rita,
having filmed the event, returned to her own time with her crew,
Spider-Man and Lockjaw. Rita intended to release the footage as a film.
Many decades later, actor John Vain portrayed Kid Colt in a film shoot.
Comments: Created by Jim Salicrup (writer), Win Mortimer (pencils), Mike Esposito & Tony Mortellaro (inks).
So it seems a small time paradox developed from this
- unless maybe Big Bart, who was left alone after Kid Colt, Spider-Man
and friends quickly left, later protested his innocence and Kid Colt
remained a wanted fugitive.
Physical stats are taken from the Earth-616 version,
as they look very much alike.
John Vain's name is an obvious reference to popular western actor John Wayne.
