This story takes place in 1911, near the end of the Lone Ranger's adventuring days and late in his life.
Panel 1: The Lone Ranger and Tonto ride into Metro City, a large-ish California city not unlike Los Angeles.
Caption: 1911, Metro City
Caption(Lone Ranger): THE WEST MAY HAVE GROWN LESS WILD OVER THE YEARS, BUT IN EVERY TOWN THERE EXIST BANDITS, CROOKS AND SCOUNDRELS...
Panel 2: Lone Ranger and Tonto stop at the offices of the Metro City Planet, with a logo that echoes the logo of Metropolis' Daily Planet.
Caption(Lone Ranger): ...AS WELL AS THE HONEST HEARTS FOR WHOM DEDICATION, LOYALTY, AND RESPECT ARE A STEADFAST CODE.
Panel 3: As the Ranger and Tonto walk into the offices, they're greeted by Jeremiah Olsen, a lanky, young, red-haired reporter.
Olsen: LONE RANGER! THANK GOODNESS YOU'RE HERE! METRO CITY IS IN INCREDIBLE DANGER!
Panel 4: We see "Lancelot" Luthor, the town's mayor, standing at a podium in the town hall. He's got a sort of huckster sheen to him, like a more sinister Harold Hill.
Caption(Olsen): IT'S THE MAYOR, "LANCELOT" LUTHOR. HE'S BEEN SUCKING THE TOWN DRY BY LETTING THE GRAHAM GANG RANSACK ALL OUR LOCAL BUSINESSES IN EXCHANGE FOR A CUT OF THE PROFITS!
Caption(Olsen): I'VE SENT A TELEGRAM TO THE GOVERNOR, BUT EVEN IF IT DOES GET TO HIM, IT'S THE WORD OF THE MAYOR AGAINST THE WORD OF ONE LITTLE REPORTER.
Panel 5: Back in the Planet offices, with a worried Olsen begging the Ranger for help.
Olsen: I'M BEGGING YOU, RANGER! SAVE OUR CITY!
Ranger: DON'T WORRY, MISTER OLSEN. A RANGER'S DUTY TO THE CAUSE OF JUSTICE DOES NOT DISCRIMINATE BETWEEN THE LOWLIEST CATTLE THIEF AND THE MOST POWERFUL OFFICIAL WHO HAS TAKEN TO ABUSING HIS POWER.
Panel 6: Olsen and the Ranger seal their deal with a handshake.
Ranger: IF YOU HAVE DEDICATED YOUR LIFE TO PROVIDING A VOICE TO THE DOWNTRODDEN AND ABUSED IN SOCIETY, I PROMISE THAT YOU WILL ALWAYS HAVE THE RANGER AT YOUR SIDE, WHETHER IN THE FLESH OR SIMPLY IN SPIRIT.
