BraveStarr's mentor turns to crime and Marshal BraveStarr must confront and apprehend him.


Jingles Morgan, a former trainer at the Galactic Marshal Academy and mentor to Marshal BraveStarr in his younger years, visits New Texas. However, the circumstances of Morgan's visit are unfortunate and tragic - Morgan has fallen from grace and is now a fugitive, wanted for murder, and is seeking refuge with Tex Hex's gang. BraveStarr will now have to confront his former idol, and see if the student has surpassed the master, if he is to bring Morgan to justice.

Moral segment[]

BraveStarr tells how he has had a painful day with coming to terms with the man he admired becoming a criminal, and says that role models should be carefully chosen and temptation to copy immoral behaviour should be resisted. BraveStarr says that there are plenty of real heroes out there, to which Thirty/Thirty chimes in with "yeah, like me".
