His father was Caucasian and his mother was a Comanche, and because of that he was an outcast from his heritage. He became a western gunfighter who dressed all in black. He received his nick name from practicing shooting bottles, because he liked the ringing sound they made. The Ringo Kid also had a sidekick named Dull Knife, and a horse named Arab.
He teamed-up with other crimefighters of his time and the Avengers to put a stop to Kang.
