Golden Age Origin

After two years of riding in the rodeo circuit, Bronc returned home to his Uncle's ranch, only to find hat he had been shot. A man named Bishop, and his gang, showed up with the deed to the ranch. Bronc was evicted from the property by the sheriff, and with nowhere else to go, he put on a mask to investigate Bishop, learning that he and his men were forcing all the ranchers in the region to sign their deeds over to him, because their property was rich in oil. As "The Masked Rider", Bronc exposed Bishop's plan with the help of Helen Carter, and his uncle's friend, Shorthorn Jones. With Bishop in jail, The Masked Rider rode off to fight injustice elsewhere.

The Masked Rider was an expert rider and roper, who could herd cattle with a whip. He was also an excellent fighter and a crack shot. He carried two revolvers and rode a smart white horse named Pinto.

The Masked Rider clearly lived at a time when cars were not common, but telephone poles were, which means that the stories probably took place around the 1890s.

Notes

Standard/Nedor published two previous stories about a western hero named "The Masked Rider" in Best Comics #2 and Exciting Comics #2. However, there may be some minor differences between these characters.
