Who is Tex
Tex has the greatest respect for the magic practices of Indian medicine men, who have saved his life on numerous occasions. And he is fearless even in the most terrifying circumstances: several times he has come face to face with alien invaders (of a humanoid or vegetal type, rather like "The thing from another world") in stories that are a tribute to the B-movies of the 1950s. He has seen the ghosts of the "Queen of Spades" and of an old monk persecuting and killing their own murderers, he has discovered the secret of the mythical "philosopher's stone" (which changed lead into gold).
For many years, the Text stories were not set in any specific historical period (but their historical precision has now increased and one may hazard a guess that they are set around the 1870s or 1880s). Tex was able to fight in the Civil War, he decimated the Dalton Gang, he defeated Butch Cassidy's "Wild Bunch", met Geronimo and fought on the side of the revolutionaries in Mexico. He thwarted an attack on President Grant and discovered who really assassinated Abraham Lincoln.
Some of these events are hard to reconcile with one another, but they are accepted because Tex is a legend and legends live beyond the bounds of time. Tex challenged the famous figure Buffalo Bill (real name, William Cody) in a target shooting competition, when he was a buffalo hunter and was considered the sharpest shot in the West. And Tex also witnessed his Wild West Show, the traveling circus founded by Cody at the end of the nineteenth century. And he met one of the stars of the show, the target shooter Annie Oakley.
