Base of Operations: Shoshone lands, near Death
First Appearance: Red Warrior#4/6 (July, 1951)
Powers/Abilities: Flaming Arrow was a young
Shoshone brave keen to prove himself to enter manhood. He was skilled
in climbing and fairly proficient in tracking and fighting with a knife.
(Red Warrior#4/6 (fb) - BTS) - Flaming Arrow's
father, apparently a senior member of the Shoshone tribe, taught his
son many skills.
(Red Warrior#4/6) - Teen-aged Flaming Arrow was
assigned a difficult test into manhood. He ran through forest and
desert to the far skull-shaped Death Mountain and climbed its sheer
slopes to reach the nest of "horo" the eagle. The giant eagle swooped
and the two battled until Flaming Arrow used his knife to kill it. He
cut its talons off as part of his task, and ran back to make it by the
sunset deadline. Successful, he was now considered a warrior.
Comments: Created by Hank Chapman & Jay Scott Pike.
Flaming Arrow's age was unrevealed and could be anywhere from 14 to 18, but it was implied he was at the younger side of that scale.
Flaming Arrow's father had the larger trailing headdress associated with Native American tribal leaders, but his actual position in the tribe was not revealed.
The opening text box stated "the
actual ordeal by which an Indian boy earns the great honor of being
called a warrior!"
