M is for...


Mercy is a small town in the American west.  Its state is unknown, but it's described as being 200 miles north of the Mexican border, so possibly Texas.  In 1870, its population was 81, having a few years earlier taken in the alien doctor Kahler-Jex, who successfully treated an outbreak of cholera and given the town electric lighting. 

At that time, a cyborg gunslinger Jex had created as a weapon of war tracks him down and demands Jex be handed over.  Jex is protected by the US Marshal Isaac and then by the Doctor and the townspeople, but eventually sacrifices himself to end the danger.  Since Isaac has also been killed (reducing the population to 79) the Doctor persuades the Gunslinger to stay on as Marshal, a post he fulfils to this day.  Mercy now has no sherrif or police force - just the Gunslinger.
