(Apache Kid#2/4 (fb) - BTS) - Chief of his Comanche tribe, Grey Wolf sought war against encroaching white settlers and the US Army, despite the truce that kept a long-standing peace. However, Grey Wolf would not attack without allies.

(Apache Kid#2/4) - Apache Kid rode into the Apache camp to see Grey Wolf trying to bully Apache chieftain Red Hawk into an alliance, even threatening war against the Apaches, but Apache Kid drove Grey Wolf and his Comanche band away. Soon after, Grey Wolf had a Comanche warrior kidnap Red Hawk's niece White Swan so that the Apache chief would acquiesce; Grey Wolf also put a bounty on Apache Kid's head. But Apache Kid enacted a plan and rode in under his white cowboy identity of Aloysius Kare. Incarcerated with White Swan, Kare soon freed them both, then secretly changed into his Apache Kid garb. Although unarmed, Apache Kid challenged Grey Wolf to a duel and the two fought brutally until Grey Wolf snatched a pot filled with burning contents. Apache Kid threw a well-aimed pebble at his foe's face that caused the Comanche to drop the pot onto his own head and he died in front of his fellow warriors. Leaderless, the Comanche warriors returned to their reservation.

Blaze of Glory#1 (2000) indicated that many western tales were based on dime novels. It's unrevealed how much this impacts Apache Kid's history.
