Rio Kid. The Rio Kid is a wandering cowboy on an “eternal quest for adventure.” He hires on to the Bar-B Ranch and quickly becomes embroiled in a feud between the Bar-B and Circle-Q Ranch, which the Rio Kid–no other name is given for him–settles with his six guns after taming the untameable wild black horse Satan. The Rio Kid then moves on to find more adventure. He fights the usual sorts of cowboy bad guys: rebellious Zuni, evil cattle rustlers, and train robbers. He appears in stories with titles like "Arizona Guns," "Mexico Gold," and "The Outlaw Quirt Bronson."
