William Talltrees is a man born in modern times, born in Wolf Point, Montana. He was the son of Thomas Talltrees, a Cheyenne tribal leader, and grew up hearing tales of the legendary Red Wolf. William witnessed his father being intimidated into selling his property to corrupt businessman Cornelius van Lunt; that night, van Lunt's henchmen killed William's family. William swore vengeance, finding and donning the ceremonial garb of Red Wolf. Owayodata visited him and imbued the young man with his spiritual legacy. The new Red Wolf found a wolf cub whom he named Lobo and trained to be his companion. Following van Lunt back to New York, he was able to gain vengeance on him with the aid of the Avengers.
It was revealed that Will Talltrees was part of a squad of Marines during the Vietnam War, along with others named Fong and Janes and Willie Lincoln. They were part of an attack on a village that resulted in the slaughter of the parents of The Bengal. Bengal resurfaced to take vengeance on those Marines, but has since turned away from his vendetta.
Red Wolf later joined the short-lived superhero team, the Rangers.
