Not all heroes wear capes — some of them ride buffalo and punch cougars in the face.
This guy is possibly the manliest man I’ve ever seen in my entire life. He rides a buffalo, fights Indians, punches a mountain lion, rescues an abandoned baby, and shoots up a saloon without messing up his killer beard. The dude can take a bullet like a boss, too. I’m pretty sure it was deflected by his awesomeness, and he was just faking being shot for the sake of the plot.
It’s safe to say that guy on a buffalo is the epitome of everything the borderline sociopath boy aspires to be. When I grow up I want to be a guy on a buffalo, too.
