COLONEL OBADIAH GUNN - Obadiah Gunn was a good husband and a good father. All he ever wanted was an opportunity to work hard on his own land, raise a fine family and live a nice peaceful existence. But sometimes fate has other plans. He quickly learned that life is not necessarily fair or moral or just. Sometimes bad things happen to good people. And so it was that the former U.S. Cavalry officer found himself in the midst of a bloody battle trying to save his home from shady bankers and corrupt lawmen. Well, sometimes the good guys win and sometimes they lose. In this case those "righteous, fine upstanding pillars of the community" took his land, killed his wife and son and left him for dead. Buried alive in a shallow grave, he was pulled out by a strange man in a top hat. The man said "I am Mr. Agitator and I have need of you in another time and place...so heal your wounds and reap vengeance on those who have taken everything dear from you, for in the real world there is no wrong or right...only might! When you have finished this task, I will return for you so that you can join me and others like you who have been wronged. Together we will unite and serve up our own brand of justice. Some will call us heroes, other vigilantes, but most will call us VILLAINS!... so be it!"
