Wild Bill Hickok was a legendary Wild West gunslinger, lawman and gambler. Because of his notoriety, he would encounter many of the other notable heroes from his era.
Following Hickok's death at the hands of Jack McCall, his body was reanimated as a zombie using voodoo by the deranged Doc "Cross" Williams. In this state, he met Jonah Hex and killed the bounty hunter's friend Slow Go Smith. This would cause Hex to track Williams down across the country. Eventually Hex was forced to duel the zombie Hickok, and he outdrew him by shooting his eyes out.
