Initially making a living by slaughtering cattle by a single blow of his fist, Dark Eyes seeks to join forces with a female counterpart, much like Lash Lightning and his partner.

Indexer Notes

Script credit by Mark Carlson-Ghost in Alter Ego #144 (January, 2017), based on circumstantial evidence.

Art credits revised from Bill Savage to ? by Craig Delich. The Who's Who indicates that Savage only worked on Mr. Risk for Ace Publications, and no extant evidence proves that he worked on Lash Lightning.
