MARVEL SPOTLIGHT (1971) (#1-33) (MARVEL) #1 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Marvel Spotlight (1971) #1
Premiere issue. First appearance and origin of Red Wolf. Cover by Neal Adams. "Red Wolf" is written by Gardner Fox and drawn by Syd Shores and Wally Wood. Johnny Wakely, the Red Wolf, walks a thin line between the red man's world and the white man's world. In that Johnny is not unique but he also moves in both the spirit realm and in the waking world thanks to the power of the Owayodata that infuses him with speed, strength and spirit. But he was not always so powerful. Johnny's early years were marred by tragedy. Orphaned as a child by an attack on his village by U.S. Cavalry pony soldiers, Johnny was given over to elderly homesteaders to raise as their own.

And while still in his teenage years, Johnny's white family was wiped out by a greedy land baron, leaving him to wonder where he fit into the world. While scouting for Brett Sabre of the U.S. Cavalry at Fort Rango (check out Western Gunfighters #1 for more on Sabre), Johnny discovers a Cheyenne war party planning to attack the fort. Realizing the tribe's ambitious medicine man, Burning Tree, has tricked the Cheyenne into war, Johnny vows to end the bloodshed before it starts. But in order to do so, Johnny Wakely must "die" in order for Red Wolf to be born! Also, check out more of Red Wolf in his own series!
