The Red Wolf wiki last edited by pikahyper on 07/15/15 09:33PM View full history


William Talltrees was born in modern day Wolf Point, Montana. He was the son of Thomas Talltrees, a Cheyenne tribal leader, and grew up hearing tales of the legendary Red Wolf. William was bullied into selling his property to corrupt businessman Cornelius Van Lunt, whose henchmen later killed William's family. William swore vengeance, finding and donning the ceremonial garb of Red Wolf. Owayodata visited him and empowered him with the spirit of Red Wolf. The new Red Wolf found a wolf cub whom he named Lobo and trained to be his companion. Following Van Lunt back to New York, he was able to avenge his family with the help of the Avengers.


Red Wolf was created by writer Roy Thomas and artist John Buscema. He first appeared in the The Avengers #80.
