Gus was a phony two-bit traveling showman – until he came to the town of Gamma Gulch on planet Sagebrush. Its people were in need of a hero to save them from Honcho Villa’s gang, and Galaxy Gus reluctantly agreed to face them. At the last minute, though, he lost his nerve and told the truth – “I throw up before gym class!” His disappointed fans forgave him, but he still had to face Villa.
He avoided a fatal fight by making a balloon Squidthing from planet Aqua, rubbing it on his feathers, and tossing it at Honcho. It grabbed him and carried him into the air; then Gus slingshotted a weather vane, which popped the balloon, which sent Honcho Villa flying and his henchmen running. Galaxy Gus vowed to stop lying, and became a bigger hero than ever before.
Years later, Zidgel wrote a song called “The Legend of Galaxy Gus."
