Doug Wildey

After military service in the Civil War, attorney Lance Temple and his father "Hoot" headed west to start a new life. When the duo was assaulted by bandits, a keg of dynamite exploded in the battle; blinding Hoot. Lance Temple vowed revenge, but was discouraged by his father from using violence as a means of justice.

Overtaken with a thirst for vengeance, Temple donned the garb of an outlaw to keep his identity a secret from both enemies, friends and family alike - but in time his father discovered the secret and the shock caused him to suffer a fatal heart attack. Unhinged by the death of his father, Temple's mind fractured into two distinct personalities that of the peaceful attorney and that of the outlaw vigilante he blames for the death of his father - the Outlaw Kid.
