Golden Age Origin

Kitty Carson was "The Ruff Ridin Gal Sheriff" of Rimrock County. After her father, the former county sheriff, was killed by rustlers, Kitty took over his job and brought his killers to justice. She was sometimes assisted by an old codger in a coonskin hat named "Gopher Gus." At one point, she joined the "Jones Wild West Show" to raise money for a hospital. She appeared to live and operate in the 20th century.

Kitty was a crack shot who carried twin six shooter revolvers. She was a trick rider and an expert with both the whip and the lasso. She also knew Judo.
