Jesse James, the Outlaw--More Human than Human?

"But there was no "standing to it" for more than a few moments. That would have been beyond human, or even outlaw, endurance." (Chapter XI)

The way this sentence is phrased caught my eye.  "Beyond human, or even outlaw, endurance"--are outlaws more than human?  Is Jesse James not only an early Western but an early superhero?
