The Seven Soldiers of Victory
Greg Sander's grandfather was a famous Indian fighter who helped open up the American West to settlement in the Nineteenth Century before he was killed by an arrow in a battle with Indians. Greg's father carried on this fighting tradition, but instead battled criminals out west and became a sheriff. Greg himself was born in Wyoming and even as a child was thrilled to watch his father in a gunfight with criminals.
Greg eventually went East and became a country singer on the radio. When Sheriff Sanders was killed by thieves out to steal a gold shipment he was guarding, Greg Sanders was called back from the East and tracked down the members of the gang of thieves. Afterwards, Sanders decided to devote his life to hunting down criminals as the vigilantes did in the old West.
Thus Greg Sanders led two careers, on as radio's singing "Prairie Troubadour," and the other as the masked crimefighter known as the Vigilante. The Vigilante operated in New York City but he also had adventures in the West.
The Head -- a secret agent for Imperial Japan -- sought to provoke a Tong War in New York City's Chinatown, and framed Lin Chou, the wise leader of the White Lotus Tong, for wrongdoing. Lin Chou's young grandson, Stuff, helped the Vigilante battle the Head and his men and clear Lin Chou's name. Stuff, "the Chinatown Kid," thereafter became the Vigilante's crimefighting sidekick.
The Vigilante was a member of the wartime All-Star Squadron and the Law's Legionnaires.
The tremendous forces unleashed by the Legionnaires' battle with the strange being called the Nebula-Man hurled the Vigilante back in time to the days of the old West. The second Black Canary, Green Arrow, and Johnny Thunder and his Thunderbolt found and brought the Vigilante, who was little older than he had been when he fought the Nebula-Man, back to their own time.
The original Stuff, now an adult, was murdered by the Vigilante's archfoe, the Dummy. The Vigilante and Stuff's son brought the Dummy to justice, and "Stuff Jr." became the Vigilante's new sidekick. The Vigilante's current whereabouts and activities are unknown.
