(Cowboy Action#6/1 (fb) - BTS) - Gunfighter Hulk Larsen killed many men and took control of swathes of Texan land, but still sought to own more. His base in Durado town was without a sheriff and his murderous criminal activities went unchecked, his lackeys helping to trump any resistance. But elsewhere, the Texan governor assigned respected Preacher Slade to bring law and order to Durado.

(Cowboy Action#6/1) - Larsen was about to gun down a Durado citizen for not moving aside fast enough when Slade shot the gun out of his hand. Larsen's lackeys took aim at Slade, but he disarmed them the same way. As the town had no jail, Larsen and his lackeys were ordered out of town. Larsen rounded up all his six close gunslinging men and soon rode back in to shoot Slade; however, the lawman had since rallied the townsfolk and they fired back at the outlaws in defense of their town. Separated from Larsen, the hired outlaws rode away pursued by a town posse while Larsen was lassoed and tied up by Slade, and taken for trial at the county seat.

I assume "Hulk" is just a nickname...

Profile by Grendel Prime.

Hulk Larsen has no known connections to:

Preacher Slade

Tall and slim, Preacher Slade was exceptionally fast draw on the handgun and a faithful Christian who believed God always accompanied him outside. As a lawman, he tamed Dodge City with his relentless dedication to the law and refusal to bow down to bullies. The Texan governor then assigned him to the lawless town of Durado. He confronted the land-grabbing killer Hulk Larsen on his first day in town; Slade ran Larsen and his lackeys out of town. Realizing Larsen would return with more men, Slade rallied townsfolk and they stood up to the outlaws. Larsen personally lassoed Larsen and rode him off to stand trial at the county seat.
