The Untold Truth Of Nicolas Cage's Ghost Rider

Johnny Blaze transforming into Ghost Rider

"Yeah, I'm good. It feels like my skull is on fire, but I'm good," Nicolas Cage's Ghost Rider uttered in the 2007 film. It's probably the most Nicolas Cage line of all time, as it perfectly encapsulates his time as the Spirit of Vengeance. While the two "Ghost Rider" films are nowhere near as revered or celebrated as other Marvel movies, there's a certain manic fury to them that tiptoes the line between sublime and shlock. In fact, it's difficult to imagine any other actor but Cage being able to carry these blockbusters and have people talking about them all these years later.

A project like "Ghost Rider" was never going to be an easy sell in the mid-2000s. How does a studio promote a flaming skull superhero who has the ability to inflict pain on others by staring at them? It sounds like something out of a horror novel and not the pages of Marvel Comics, right? Interestingly enough, that was a debate that both filmmakers and Cage had about the property and how they should tackle the character. The way these two films turned out is a tale that's as fiery and spicy as Johnny Blaze himself, so grab that biker jacket and hop on as we take a ride into the untold truth of Nicolas Cage's Ghost Rider.

Nicolas Cage wanted an R-rated Ghost Rider movie

The story of "Ghost Rider" is Faustian in nature. Man makes a deal with the Devil; in return, the Lord of Lies owns his soul and makes him do his bidding until the pact is broken. While Mark Steven Johnson's origin film leaned into the angle ever so slightly, the story didn't drift too far outside the realm of PG-13 because it had to think of the children. If it was up to Nicolas Cage, though, the movie would have been a lot darker and rated R for really terrifying.

"'Ghost Rider' was a movie that always should've been an R-rated movie," Cage told JoBlo . "David Goyer had a brilliant script, which I wanted to do with David, and for whatever reason, they just didn't let us make the movie." The actor cited how "Deadpool" had worked well as an adults-only film and that Ghost Rider as a horror-esque character fits the same sort of mold, too. Unfortunately, it was a case of wrong place, wrong time. Goyer would eventually pen the script for "Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance"; however, that film wasn't rated R, either.

Nicolas Cage painted his face to channel the Spirit of Vengeance

No matter which movie he's in, Nicolas Cage fully commits to his roles and channels the power of The Cage as he unleashes surrealism. Realistically, and for safety and staying alive reasons, he was never going to set his own skull on fire to play Ghost Rider. No, he had a different plan to get into the character's mindset and ensure that vengeance was his.

Unlike Jared Leto , who sent gifts to his "Suicide Squad" co-stars in an effort to trick them into believing he was really the Joker, Cage decided to convince everyone he was capable of summoning spirits. But how did he do this? Let him explain in his own words. "To really believe I was this ghost, this spirit of vengeance, painting my face with a kind of Afro-Caribbean voodoo icon, or a new Orleans voodoo icon," Cage told Den of Geek . "I had white paint and black paint and black contact lenses on my eyes, and I sewed bits of ancient Egyptian artefacts into my leather jacket and would channel this spirit of vengeance and really believe I was that." Cage added that he didn't talk to anyone when he arrived on set and looked into their eyes to see if they feared him, which they did. Fortunately, a picture of him in this getup exists , and it's as glorious as it sounds.

The original villain for Nicolas Cage's Ghost Rider was Scarecrow

Did "Ghost Rider" almost feature the first Marvel versus DC crossover? Nope, but that's the reason the studio was hesitant to let Mark Steven Johnson use Scarecrow as the villain in the first film. Speaking to ComicBook.com , Johnson confirmed this detail. "In my first pass at the script, the villain was Scarecrow," he said. "I always loved the Marvel version of Scarecrow and thought he would have made a really cool and sinister adversary for Ghost Rider. But the studio was afraid it would get confused with the DC Scarecrow, and so we ended up with Blackheart." Considering how "Batman Begins" was in theaters two years earlier than "Ghost Rider" and featured Jonathan Crane's Scarecrow as a central character, it's easy to understand the studio's hesitancy here.

In Marvel Comics, Scarecrow's true identity is Ebenezer Laughton, and he started out as an adversary of Iron Man (via Marvel ). After starting out with the circus and contortionism in particular, he turned to a life of crime and decided the best way to do this was by dressing up as a Scarecrow. However, he didn't just throw a bag over his head and call it a day since he also trained birds to respond to his nefarious commands. So no, Scarecrow wasn't just a character that Marvel stole from DC .

Eric Bana chose Hulk over Ghost Rider

Ang Lee's "Hulk" was an unappreciated comic book film that was well and truly ahead of its time in 2003. Instead of focusing on non-stop action, it chose to be a character study of Bruce Banner. As Newsweek's review eloquently put it: "Bruce, like the heroes of most Freudian dramas, is suppressing a buried primal trauma, images of an Oedipal nightmare he can't quite remember." The film proved to be the underrated Eric Bana's  last rodeo as the lean, green, smashing machine. However, his time as a superhero could have been much more different had he chosen a different role.

"He'd heard [Nicolas Cage] might get the job but wanted to meet anyway because he's a professional biker," producer Avi Arad told Variety  before revealing that Bana signed on to play Hulk after their initial meeting. In a later interview with ComicBook.com , Mark Steven Johnson stated that Cage had always been his first pick for the part of Johnny Blaze, and he hadn't even discussed another actor. Bana probably sensed this, too, hence him picking "Hulk" after meeting with the producers.

Eva Mendes turned down Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance

While Nicolas Cage fired up the screen as Johnny Blaze/Ghost Rider, Eva Mendes — his co-star in the first film — played a central role in the plot as his love interest, Roxanne Simpson. So it was surprising to see how a character that was such a crucial part of the movie's jigsaw puzzle didn't return for the sequel, "Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance." Judging by Mendes' comments, she had no intention of doing so at all, making it absolutely clear that she wouldn't return as Roxanne.

As news of the sequel circulated through Hollywood in 2008, Mendes provided her honest thoughts on the topic to MTV . "I think 'Ghost Rider' had its moment," she said. "I don't know about a sequel, but I don't think it needs one." The part of Roxanne wasn't recast in the sequel; instead, the film decided to disregard the character entirely. Somewhere in Marvel's multiverse, though, Roxanne is still standing in the middle of the field, waiting for Johnny Blaze to come back and pick her up as per the last scene in the film. Seriously, where was her ride back home?

Nicolas Cage said Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance was a reboot

When "Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance" was released, there was a weird narrative around it. Sure, it had Nicolas Cage returning as the hothead rider, yet it seemed to all but forget about the previous film's events. Considering how the bulk of the cast from the 2007 movie didn't return, it was easy to skate over this. But was this supposed to be a reboot or a requel?

"It is a completely different film," Cage revealed to Gizmodo . "The first one, which I won't denigrate — I liked the first one, but it was almost like a fairy tale. Almost like a Disney fairy tale interpretation of Faust. This one is completely reconceived, it's not even connected to the first one, it's a different origin sequence." However, when screenwriter David S. Goyer spoke to MTV about the film (via Coming Soon ), he stated that the story was meant to take place eight years after the first movie and wasn't a reboot per se. Judging by the conflicting comments, it appears as if no one is really sure of where it fits in the timeline.

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance was rewritten more times than anyone can remember

While "Ghost Rider" wasn't warmly received by critics, chalking up a pitiful 26% approval on Rotten Tomatoes , the response to "Spirit of Vengeance" was even worse, with only 18% critical approval . In The Guardian's  review of the film, critic Philip French wrote: "A wisp of a story with no variation in pace links cycle chases and violent battles." Criticism of the script seemed to be a common thread in most of the reviews, and co-director Brian Taylor agreed that it was a weak point that did the film no favors.

Chatting to Flickering Myth , Taylor revealed how he wanted to work with David S. Goyer's script from over a decade earlier, which would have made the film scarier and rated R — something that Nicolas Cage himself also championed. "Then, in the time between that and the second movie, the script had been rewritten literally 14 times or 16 times or something like that to the point where it was kind of a mess," Taylor said. "It was also just a little too clean and a little too restrained." Taylor added that it was a personal regret the film wasn't made for mature audiences since it could have become a definitive "Ghost Rider" story.

Nicolas Cage wanted to see Ghost Rider beat up Spider-Man

Both "Ghost Rider" films and Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man" trilogy were released by Sony Pictures. If it were today, fans would be debating about how and when Spidey and Johnny Blaze would be crossing over and whether they'd be friends or foes. In 2007, it was a different time for comic book movies, and crossovers films were about as rare as a good video game adaptation. Fans still dreamt of it, though, and so did Nicolas Cage.

At the 2006 San Diego Comic-Con International, Cage was part of a roundtable to promote "Ghost Rider" (via IGN ). A question was posed about the possibility of a Marvel team-up down the line, and Cage responded enthusiastically, "I would actually like to see it. To actually have the comic book characters team-up? Because, and once again, I'm speaking to the Ghost Rider family, we all know that Ghost Rider can kick Spider-Man's a**! With one look. And I want to see that happen." Unfortunately, this crossover hasn't happened to date, but anything is possible with everyone being under the MCU umbrella now.

Ghost Rider urinating fire wasn't Nicolas Cage's idea

Across both "Ghost Rider" films, there were a few bizarre scenes that had fans raising their eyebrows and stroking their chins. None were quite as outlandish as watching Ghost Rider urinating flames in "Spirit of Vengeance": It answered a question that no one knew needed to be asked at the time. Considering some of Nicolas Cage's prior performances and his ability to embrace the eccentric, many fans presumed this scene was straight out of his playbook. Well, it wasn't.

"I had nothing to do with it," Cage told HuffPost . "That was [Mark] Neveldine and [Brian] Taylor. And I knew, having seen their work, that they were capable of going into a pop-art, lowbrow spectrum — all the way to the sublime. Kind of like a Robert Williams painting." Cage revealed that he was even surprised when he read the scene in the script and questioned whether he'd do it or not. Ultimately, he decided that he simply had to, knowing this sort of scene was what the directors had become renowned for, and he wanted to be a part of it.

Nicolas Cage's abs were real

Much like most people only realize what they have once it's truly gone, fans are now starting to appreciate what Nicolas Cage brought to the "Ghost Rider" films. The MCU's multiverse allows for characters such as Cage's Johnny Blaze to return and fit into the universe like a glove; however, the actor has been rather — ahem — cagey about it. One of the reasons is because of the drama surrounding his abs — or more specifically, Blaze's abs. Considering the amount of CGI that went into making "Ghost Rider," many wondered if Cage's impressive physique in the film was real or a bit of movie magic.

"They are real," Cage revealed to  GQ . "And that's why I will never work out that hard again because no one wanted to believe they were real. They wanted to believe it was CGI, which it wasn't. So what's the point?" Poor guy. We didn't hear anyone asking if Henry Cavill was really that ripped  in "Man of Steel," now did we?

Nicolas Cage thought Ghost Rider was a better match for him than Superman

In the mid-'90s, Nicolas Cage was one of the biggest stars in Hollywood. Whether he was breaking into Alcatraz in "The Rock" or switching mugs with John Travolta in "Face/Off," everyone wanted a piece of the Cage — even Tim Burton. The "Batman" director had taken on a new project, "Superman Lives," which would have been a drastic reinvention of the character, and he wanted Cage to play the Man of Steel. Sadly,  "Superman Lives" was never made , but many fans have pondered what type of performance the actor would have brought to the film.

In an interview with HuffPost , Cage revealed that he'd love to work with Burton on a film, but he has no regrets over the outcome of "Superman Lives." "We were both the victims of a very unfortunate studio bureaucracy," he said. "So it didn't work out. But I'm not upset about it, because I do genuinely think that Ghost Rider is a better match for me. And I think Ghost Rider had more of an effect on me, even as a child." Eventually, Cage did get a shot at playing Superman, as he voiced the character in the animated film "Teen Titans Go! To the Movies."

Nicolas Cage says Ghost Rider was his 'philosophical awakening'

When it comes to choosing roles, Nicolas Cage sees something that no one else does. What might appear madcap for a star of his stature is an opportunity for him to flex his acting muscles. However, the role of Ghost Rider is still one that perplexes many. As it turns out, the character is much more significant to him than most people give credit for.

In a career-spanning interview with The Scotsman , Cage explained how picking up a "Ghost Rider" comic book changed his life and showed him how something so terrifying could also be a symbol of good. "To me it was my first philosophical awakening — how is this possible, this duality?" he said. "From then on, I wanted to explore characters who are overcoming obstacles within themselves or outside of themselves and who try to live life and survive with those obstacles." Cage added that the character has also served as a major inspiration for his other roles. Huh. It just goes to show — there's a little bit of Ghost Rider in all of us.

Best ghost superheroes from DC, Marvel, and beyond

The ghost superheroes are as spooky as they are super

ghost superheroes

Halloween is known as the night when the dead roam the earth - but some restless spirits haunt comic books year round.

As we prepare to get spooky, we're looking at the legacy of ghost superheroes in comic books (BoOoO-ks?) - and yes, we're sticking to superheroes and adventurers, so classic comic characters like Casper don't count, despite definitely being ghosts, and with superheroes who are specifically ghosts or who have been called ghosts (sorry "Ghost who walks" fans - despite his name, the Phantom is 100% alive).

So without further ado, here are the greatest ghost superheroes of all time!

10. The Haunted Tank

The Haunted Tank is a World War II tank that is haunted by the ghost of Confederate general J.E.B. Stuart who was sent back to Earth by Alexander the Great to watch over his descendant Jeb Stuart and his M3 Stuart tank (which flies a Confederate flag instead of a 'Union' flag in honor of its namesake, Jeb's Confederate ghost grampa).

Yes, you read all that right. 

It's a real head-scratcher, and we'll leave it at that.

9. Ralph & Sue Dibny

To be honest, this entry might make us tear up a little.

Though Ralph Dibny is best known as the stretchy superhero Elongated Man and his wife Sue as his constant companion, even in his stints on the Justice League, through a series of dire tragedies Sue died, Ralph became a destitute alcoholic, and then died fighting the demon Neron.

But as is sometimes the way of things, the pair returned as ghostly detectives in a later story. Of course, this change was short-lived - it didn't last through 2011's 'New 52' reboot - but seeing Ralph and Sue reunited even in the afterlife was a brief respite for readers shocked by their deaths.

8. The Secret

When she was rescued from DEO captivity by Young Justice, the intangible, mist-like Greta Hayes appeared to be a metahuman - but her true origin proved to be much more tragic.

As it turns out, Greta is a ghost - a tortured spirit trapped between life and death following her murder at the hands of the villain Harm - her own brother.

But Secret made the best of it ( she disappeared from continuity), hanging out with DC's teen heroes for a time.

7. Doctor Mirage

Valiant's Doctor Mirage is a tale of lovers separated by death but who still manage to become a superhero team through their shared mystical abilities.

Though which of them is dead and which is alive varies by incarnation, the current Doctor Mirage is Shan Fong, who uses her paranormal ability to speak to the dead to search for her husband Hwen's spirit - and then fight crime when they're reunited.

Doctor Mirage slightly borrows a concept from Marvel's Brother Voodoo - a powerful sorcerer who has a fluctuating relationship with his brother's ghost.

6. Johann Krauss

The B.P.R.D. may skirt the line of superheroes and special agents, but Johann Kraus is all ghost.

A German-born psychic, Kraus is a fully-formed ectoplasm apparition which inhabits a special containment suit, necessary since his human body was destroyed in a magical accident.

Johann once got a cloned body - but it led him to lapse in his work with the B.P.R.D., eventually resulting in his death (again) and return to the containment suit.

He eventually died (permanently) fighting the Ogdru Jahad.

This entry seems self-explanatory just based on name alone… But since we love a Ghost story (or two)…

Dark Horse's Ghost is Elisa Cameron, and initially, she was not actually a ghost (in fact, she was never technically a ghost at all, but we'll get to that). She was initially a vigilante with "nanomite" technology that allowed her to become intangible – but later, following the loss of her memories, she believed she actually was the spirit of a dead woman destined to investigate her own murder.

Ghost even crossed over with Hellboy, featuring its own cast of paranormal heroes (including previous entry Johan Kraus).

Then of course there's Marvel's Ghost, who's not undead, but a tech-powered intangible corporate spy.

4. Ghost Rider

Technically Ghost Rider is a Spirit of Vengeance, but since it's right there in his name – and he's still a dead guy who comes back to life in a haunting visage – we'll take the mulligan.

Ghost Rider is actually more of a title for many heroes, anti-heroes, and even villains throughout the history of the Marvel Universe, but Johnny Blaze, the first modern Ghost Rider, and Danny Ketch, his successor, are the most well known.

Pretty much across the board, Ghost Riders are dead folks who were granted resurrection in exchange for serving as the host for the "Spirit of Vengeance," a skull-faced entity sent to earth to punish the wicked.

In recent years, the Robbie Reyes and alt-future Frank Castle versions of the character have been in the spotlight, but Johnny and Danny took center stage again in a recent volume of Ghost Rider.

3. Gentleman Ghost

DC's Gentleman Ghost is definitely more of a supervillain than a superhero, but he's such an iconic aspect of this supernatural comic book trope it just wouldn't be a complete list without him.

'Gentleman' Jim Craddock was an old west outlaw who ran afoul of two cowboy vigilantes named Cinammon and Nighthawk – who just so happened to be one life cycle of Hawkman and Hawkgirl, who have died and been reborn over and over again since ancient Egypt. After Nighthawk killed Craddock, he became a ghost, doomed to wander the Earth, eventually even fighting Hawkman and Hawkgirl themselves in the '40s.

Though he's primarily been a Hawkman and JSA villain, Gentleman Ghost has also often clashed with Batman. Weirdly enough, Gentleman Ghost was co-created by writer Robert Kanigher (alongside Joe Kubert), who also co-created the Haunted Tank, seen elsewhere on this list.

Boston Brand might just be the prototypical ghostly superhero (if not for our first entry on this list … more on that soon).

A circus performer who was murdered by a mysterious assassin named the Hook, Boston Brand was returned to Earth as a spirit by a fictional god named Rama Kushna.

Using his newfound power to possess the bodies of the living, Brand (as Deadman) solved his own murder and has teamed up with Batman and other DC heroes on numerous occasions, even serving on an incarnation of Justice League Dark.

1. The Spectre

Like his Marvel Comics counterpart Ghost Rider, DC's Spectre is the ghostly embodiment of vengeance and karmic justice – though he predates the modern Ghost Rider by a few decades.

The original Spectre (in real world terms – the character is ancient) is a dead detective named Jim Corrigan who is granted the power of the Spectre, returning to Earth as a ghost to wreak horrific divine justice on those who do wrong. Debuting in the Golden Age, the Corrigan version of the character was a founding member of the Justice Society.

Corrigan appeared in the 'New 52' era as a once again living Gotham City detective - and in 2019, Corrigan returned as the Spectre in a Detective Comics tale.

Biography [ ]

Early life [ ], family struggles [ ].

Robbie Reyes was born to Alberto Reyes and Juliana Reyes . He was raised in Los Angeles by his uncle Eli Morrow with his younger brother Gabe . [3] Reyes dropped out of Garfield High School in eleventh grade and instead took a job working at Canelo's Auto and Body . [1]

Origins of Ghost Rider [ ]

The Good Samaritan 1

Reyes is caught stealing the Hell Charger

One day, Reyes had decided to steal his uncle, Eli Morrow 's, car and take it for an illegal drag race in Los Angeles . While he was quietly pushing the car out of the drive in order not to disturb his uncle, Reyes was caught by Gabe Reyes who questioned what he was doing. Filled with his own ego, Reyes invited Gabe to join him for the race and they went cruising around the neighborhood, with Gabe teasing Reyes that he was not allowed to help him with his homework and Reyes would only help him fail if he tried.

RReyes-DrivingFlashback

Reyes attempts to save his brother 's life

As they drove down the street together, joking and teasing one another as usual, a group of the Fifth Street Locos pulled up in front of their car. When Reyes honked his horn, trying to get them to move out of his way, he was horrified to witness the gang members throwing a molotov cocktail at him and his brother, causing the front of the Hell Charger to be engulfed in flames. Reyes put the car in reverse and used his driving skills to attempt to escape their attackers; however, before long, the Locos caught up with the brothers and fired at their car, causing them both to be hit with bullets and their car to crash.

RReyes-CarCrashDeath

Reyes is thrown from the car and killed

The injuries suffered in the attack caused Gabe to lose his ability to walk, and Robbie was thrown from the car, flying through the air with his body covered in bullet wounds. As he was falling through the air, Reyes' last thought was a plea to God, to the universe, to anyone who would listen, that Gabe be spared. He swore he would give anything to save Gabe, as he blamed himself for the incident. Reyes then hit the ground, the impact killing him. However, in the darkness, Reyes heard a voice which asked him if he wanted a second chance, did he want to punish those who hurt his brother, did he want to avenge his own death. Reyes said "Yes. more than anything yes." and a moment later he was alive again.

First flame

Johnny Blaze turns Reyes into Ghost Rider

A mysterious stranger on a motorcycle appeared and pulled Gabe out of the burning car to safety. The stranger then approached Robbie, revealing himself to be Johnny Blaze , a demonic being with a flaming skull for a head. Blaze touched Robbie, and transferred the Spirit of vengeance into Robbie, turning him into the new Ghost Rider, before disappearing. It would be over five years before Robbie told Gabe the truth about what happened that night, as Robbie feared that Gabe would not understand. [4] Eli Morrow was later sent to South Ridge Penitentiary on charges of attempted murder of his former employer, but he told Robbie that this person deserved it. [3]

Vengeance Spree [ ]

GhostRider-Graffiti

Ghost Rider's image is graffitied on a wall

Having gained the power of Ghost Rider, Robbie Reyes used this power to track down and bring vengeance upon those he deemed as guilty and deserving of death. This included members of the terrorist group the Watchdogs , the Fifth Street Locos , a corrupt cop, city councilman Roger Perez and the pedophilic school teacher Thomas Wright . This activity made Ghost Rider a feared symbol in Los Angeles , with his story being told and his image being spray-painted on walls. [1]

Questioning Gang Member [ ]

HellCharger-TheGhostAttack

Ghost Rider attacks with the Hell Charger

Having discovered that members of the Aryan Brotherhood had stolen a crate containing some mysterious cargo , Reyes chased them down in his Hell Charger . He found the men in a confrontation with Quake , and sped the car towards their truck before R. Moore fired a rocket launcher at it. The explosion briefly launched the car into the air and engulfed it in flames, but this only caused him to transform into Ghost Rider and attack the gunmen, smashing the Hell Charger into them and killing D. Anderson upon impact with the side of the car.

GhostRider-FirstBurningLook

Ghost Rider kills Aryan Brotherhood members

Creating a ring of fire around their vehicles, Ghost Rider trapped the criminals and unknowingly prevented Quake's intervention. He burnt M. Scott 's soul before brutally killing two more of the gang members by bashing in their heads to break their skulls and ripping out one man's spine. Grabbing T. Mitchell , Ghost Rider knocked him out and stuffed him in the back of the Hell Charger, intending to question him further before getting back into his car and driving away before the police could stop him, giving Quake a brief look at his burning skull as he stepped into the Hell Charger and left.

RReyes-Keys-MitchellTorture

Reyes tortures and questions T. Mitchell

Back at El Monte Junk and Salvage , Reyes chained T. Mitchell up and demanded to know why he had stolen a lorry, flicking his keys in his hand as a way of unnerving the prisoner. Mitchell claimed that he was working for the Chinatown Crew under Chen 's orders, but Reyes did not believe his tale as he thought the Aryan Brotherhood would never work for the Chinese due to their own racist views and resorted to hitting him repeatedly in the head, although Mitchell insisted that he was telling the truth. Reyes then noted that he would soon have to confess to Ghost Rider, who would know if he was guilty.

RReyes-Disguise-TheGhost

Reyes overhears S.H.I.E.L.D. agents talking

Once Mitchell gave him its location, Reyes located the truck and disguised himself as a member of the same company to get close to it. Eventually, Reyes overheard a conversation between Phil Coulson and Alphonso Mackenzie , who had come to investigate its disappearance as finding it could help them locate Quake. Instead of seeing a deal going down to sell the crate to Chen, Reyes watched as S.H.I.E.L.D. agents found two corpses who had torn each other apart due to having come into contact with Lucy Bauer 's ghostly form and been driven mad.

RobbieReyes-EveryoneSayThat

Reyes prepares to execute T. Mitchell

Having learned all he could from his captive, Reyes decided that the best move was to kill Mitchell, who was clearly guilty and did not know anything else that could help him. Returning to El Monte Junk and Salvage , Reyes explained that he had seen nothing there that Mitchell had promised and got into his car. Mitchell realized that Reyes was going to kill him and made a desperate plea for mercy, but Reyes dismissed him and drove the burning Hell Charger straight into Mitchell, crushing his body and killing him, with Reyes showing absolutely no sympathy to the terrified criminal.

Reyes prepares the Hell Charger for the night

While preparing to hunt down the Chinatown Crew and kill them all in order to regain the crate which contained Lucy Bauer , Reyes got his Hell Charger ready and then stepped outside of El Monte Junk and Salvage , only to find himself greeted by Quake , who claimed she wanted to locate a car of the same model as the Hell Charger. Reyes greeted her with a smile and claimed to not be able to help as he only worked nights and recommended she come back in the morning to speak to Canelo , which she said she would do while she thanked Reyes.

The Ghost 1

Reyes is found and questioned by Quake

However, Reyes recognized Quake from the night when Ghost Rider had attacked the Aryan Brotherhood and sensed her as a threat, he later decided to take her out of the situation and invited her into the office to check the records to look for the car, planning on subduing her during this time. As they walked, Reyes joked about the poor state of the repair shop and pointed out the office and asked if she lived in Los Angeles and she claimed to only be visiting, with Reyes noting that this was not a nice neighborhood to spend a holiday, all which flicking his keys in his hand which caught Quake's attention as he had been doing it the other night.

RobbieReyes-YouGotTheDevilInYou

Reyes prepares to fight against Quake

When Reyes attempted to attack her, Quake used her Inhuman powers to send a shockwave which threw Reyes backwards into a van. Taking a steel pool and igniting it in flame, Reyes noted that Quake had the devil inside her too before attacking her. As they fought, Quake pushed her hand onto Reyes' chest and tried to break his bones while she confronted Reyes over the deaths of Roger Perez and Thomas Wright , although Reyes claimed that they deserved to die as each were killers and pedophiles, noting that their deaths were vengeance.

TheGhost

Reyes transforms himself into Ghost Rider

Quake told Reyes that he did not get to decide who lived and who died, but Reyes informed her that it was not him who decided. With this Reyes underwent his transformation, burning the flesh off his skin until he reached the bone, turning into Ghost Rider. Using various steel beams left around in Canelo's Auto and Body shop, Ghost Rider created new burning weapons for himself to then attack Quake, only for her to use her own shockwave powers to disarm him and keep the Rider at bay, as she knew a single burn from him would prove to be fatal.

Ghost Rider Spares Quake

Ghost Rider refuses to kill Quake

Knocking Quake to the ground with a single punch, Ghost Rider drops a large steel cart on her, only for Quake to keep it from falling with a shockwave. As she laid defenseless on the ground, Quake asked Ghost Rider to kill her, as she was still remorseful for her part in the tragic death of her fellow S.H.I.E.L.D. agent and boyfriend Lincoln Campbell months before. Despite her request to die as she felt she deserved it, Ghost Rider looked inside her soul and decided that she did not deserve to die, and instead walked away from her as she continued to hold up the cabinet with her powers.

Reyes waits to meet his brother

The next day, Reyes waited on the side of the street in Los Angeles to collect his brother, Gabe Reyes , while considering what had occurred the night before. Once Gabe finally arrived, Reyes collected Gabe's wheelchair from the back of the car and lifted his brother into it, thanking Janet for giving him a ride as the bus had apparently broken down.

Reyes spends his day with Gabe Reyes

He then pushed the chair down the street while teasing his brother about trying to get a date with their friend Janet's little sister, while Gabe joked that he had been helping Reyes' boss Canelo do Reyes' paperwork for him, as Reyes struggled with the paperwork due to failing to finish high school, only getting as far as the eleventh grade. While the brothers talked and joked with one another, they were secretly being watched by Quake who was attempting to learn Reyes' emotional weakness, which was clearly his love for his brother, who he remained highly protective of no matter what. [1]

Questioned by Quake [ ]

RReyes-Canelos-S4E2

Reyes arrives at work and greets Canelo

Leaving his home, Reyes got into his Hell Charger and drove through Los Angeles to get to work at Canelo's Auto and Body . Once Reyes arrived he was invited to join a debate between Canelo and another colleague about the football game that had been on television the night before, but Reyes explained that he had missed the game as he had been out while it was on. While Canelo teased Reyes about meeting a mystery girl , Reyes claimed that he was only interested in vehicles.

Reyes searches for his seeming stalker

Continuing his work, Reyes helped a woman fill out her paperwork for the car he had just repaired for her and told her that she could pay inside, while he became distracted by Daisy Johnson's Van , which had pulled up outside and had not moved in several hours. Becoming suspicious, Reyes took a crowbar and walked over to the van to see who exactly was following him. Reyes opened the van door and charged inside, crowbar at the ready, only to discover it was empty, allowing him to relax once again and put his weapon away as he planned on continuing his day by working.

RReyes-DJohnsonCanelo

Reyes learns Daisy Johnson has found him

Walking back inside, Reyes found Daisy Johnson was having a talk with Canelo, claiming that she and Reyes had gone to Garfield High School together. Johnson mockingly claimed that she was there because her Van had mysteriously burst into flames the night before, clearly commenting on what she had seen Reyes do during their previous fight. She noted that Canelo had told her that Reyes was an expert with this sort of thing and he agreed to work on her van in order to keep his secret away from Canelo and the other people he worked with so that he could keep them all safe.

RReyes-IllGetAngry

Reyes warns Daisy Johnson to leave now

As they continued working on the van together, Johnson questioned Reyes about the danger of something catching fire and being a problem, but Reyes strongly hinted that she should leave it alone before she got hurt. Johnson questioned Reyes about if his victims really deserved to die but Reyes told her she should not have come. Canelo joined the conversation as they joked about Reyes' past and personality. Once Canelo had gone he warned her to leave now but Johnson used her Inhuman power to damage her van so he had to stay longer while he continued to repair the damage.

RReyes-ISoldMySoul

Reyes explains he sold his soul to the Devil

Johnson continued to question Reyes about his killings, with Reyes insisting that they deserved to die and his killings were vengeance. Johnson noted that there was a group called the Watchdogs who were hunting Inhumans , but Reyes corrected her that he was not an Inhuman, telling her he had sold his soul to the devil, a statement that Johnson found very hard to believe. Reyes told Johnson that he was willing to have another fight against her as he had nothing to lose, but Johnson noted that his brother would be saddened to lose him, which greatly angered Reyes.

RReyes-BurningEnginePart-S4E2

Reyes furiously attacks Daisy Johnson

Just at that moment, Canelo told Reyes that he was leaving and wanted him to lock up the garage while he was gone. Once his friend had left, Reyes grabbed a wrench and set it aflame, telling Johnson she should not have mentioned his brother. Johnson used her powers to throw a car at Reyes, but he dodged the falling vehicle and kept moving toward her with his eyes burning, grabbing a piece of the engine and setting it on fire as a new weapon. The fight was very brief as Reyes fractured Johnson's arm which was weakened by her repeated use of her power before knocking her out. [5]

Searching for Guilt [ ]

RReyes-SearchForGuilt

Reyes speaks to the captured Daisy Johnson

Reyes tied up Daisy Johnson in Canelo 's office as he began going through the possessions which he had stolen from inside her van . Once Johnson awoke, Reyes informed her that this was the first caught anybody had caught him and he was still deciding on what to do next. Reyes noted how Johnson clearly had a death wish and before he could kill her, he needed to find some kind of proof that she deserved to die which he was unsure really existed.

RReyes-LincolnPhoto

Reyes discovers Daisy Johnson 's reason for guilt

The pair began to discuss each other's motives for what they were doing, with Reyes noting there was something in her past that was haunting her, while Johnson joked that this was coming from a man convinced he was possessed by the devil. Eventually, Reyes found a photograph of Lincoln Campbell and concluded that Johnson felt guilt for somebody who had died due to her and she felt that this was her fault entirely. Johnson asked why he had hunted down the Aryan Brotherhood members, noting they were working with the Chinatown Crew who were supplying them with new weapons.

Reyes chases down a team of scientists

When Johnson noted that they had stolen some kind of a weapon from the Pasadena Momentum Laboratory within Pasadena , Reyes taped up Johnson's mouth and running to the Hell Charger . Just as Reyes drove down the road, Johnson broke free and managed to leap onto the roof of the car as Reyes sped through Los Angeles . To shake her off, Reyes summoned the power of Ghost Rider, roaring as he did so, and caused flames to burst out of the car which forced Johnson to jump off while he continued to drive through the roads and towards the lab as fast as he could.

Ghost Rider saves Leo Fitz from Frederick

Arriving at Momentum Labs , Reyes found Frederick who was close to killing Leo Fitz , having locked Alphonso Mackenzie inside a radiation reactor core. Just as Reyes pulled Frederick away from Fitz in time and bypassed his intangibility, Frederick looked at him straight in the eyes, with his own eyes burning red with fire. Just as Frederick questioned what Reyes was, he gave out a roar and transformed himself into Ghost Rider, much to Fitz's horror as he looked upon Ghost Rider's completely terrifying burning skull and yellow eyes.

While Fitz focused his efforts on trying to free his S.H.I.E.L.D. ally, Ghost Rider continued to hold onto Frederick, transforming his hand into flame and started burning him which completely killed him. While Daisy Johnson arrived and used her Inhuman powers to free Mackenzie and Fitz shut down the core before it overloaded, Ghost Rider found an image of the scientists from Momentum Labs, including Lucy Bauer , and stole it before leaving, with Johnson telling Mackenzie not to follow him or even try and engage him in a fight, knowing how dangerous Ghost Rider was. [5]

Working with Quake [ ]

Giving a Ride

Reyes offers Daisy Johnson a ride

While driving the Hell Charger , Reyes came across Daisy Johnson , whose van had stopped working altogether. Reyes asked if she was working with S.H.I.E.L.D. and she assured him that she was not now; Reyes then asked if she wanted to know what was connecting the Watchdogs , Aryan Brotherhood , Chinatown Crew and Momentum Labs , claiming he might be the connecting piece himself. Reyes then allowed her to enter his car as they drove away to continue their investigation. [5]

RReyes-FillingUp-Uprising

Reyes speaks to Daisy Johnson

Reyes and Johnson drove down the street until Reyes decided to pull over to get some petrol at a Roxxon Gas Station , all the while with Johnson attempting to make small talk with him. They overheard on another car's radio that the Inhumans had seemingly caused a blackout in Miami , with Reyes noting that he feared for his brother's safety if they were affected. They were then also caught in the EMP Strike that hit Los Angeles . Fortunately, Reyes' Hell Charger was unaffected by the attack, since had been made a few years before electronics were put in cars, allowing them to drive to Gabe's location.

RReyes-DrivingCharger-Uprising

Reyes and Daisy Johnson discuss Ghost Rider

Driving through the roads which were not filled with cars that had all been knocked out by the blackout, they swiftly hurried to find Reyes' brother, Gabe Reyes , who has been left stranded in the middle of the city. While they were looking for him, Reyes mentioned that his uncle Elias Morrow worked for Momentum Energy . Johnson revealed that she knew his uncle was in jail for attempted murder, but Reyes said his uncle had a reason for attacking that person . Reyes then discussed what his power was, with Johnson questioning his story of selling his soul to the devil, which did not bother Reyes.

RReyes-RedEyes-Uprising

Reyes and Johnson eventually found Gabe getting harassed by some punks who were joking about stealing his wheelchair. When a Pistol Punk placed his hands on Reyes' car, despite being warned against it, Reyes turned the Hell Charger red hot, burning his hands. They proceeded to fight the bullies without using their powers, but Johnson was forced to use her own Inhuman power to save Gabe, shattering the bones in her arm in the process. Eventually, Reyes and Johnson beat up all the punks using their bare hands before putting Gabe in the car and quickly driving away to safety.

Uprising 6

Reyes questions where Daisy Johnson is

Returning to the Reyes Residence for their own safety, Reyes lit some candles while recommending that Johnson take her fractured arm to the hospital for treatment, while noting that he never got hurt since transforming into Ghost Rider healed all his injuries. That night, Reyes returned to Canelo's Auto and Body to make sure the place made it through the blackout; however, just before he left, he informed Johnson that Gabe was unaware of his powers and asked her not to reveal his secret. Back in Los Angeles by the next morning, Reyes returned home and asked his brother where Johnson was only to be told that she had disappeared during the night. [6]

As Mackenzie and Phil Coulson chased down the escaping Reyes in their own car L.O.L.A. , they drove through traffic as Reyes attempted to lose them however he could, eventually ending up driving through the Los Angeles River where the open stretch gave Reyes' car the clear advantage. Before long, Reyes was able to roar far ahead from L.O.L.A. due to the Charger's impressive power. However, before he could escape from the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, Reyes is knocked unconscious when he crashed into a camouflaged Quinjet which was there waiting for him, with Coulson questioning if now he owned Reyes' car.

Reyes is questioned by S.H.I.E.L.D. Agents

S.H.I.E.L.D. took Reyes and his car into their custody, locking him inside the Containment Module to protect them from his deadly powers, although Reyes questioned if it really could contain him. Coulson questioned Reyes, noting that he knew about his past at Garfield High School before he had begun working at Canelo's Auto and Body before asking about his murders, which Reyes insisted were justified as he only killed those he deserved to die. When Coulson asked if he was an Inhuman , Reyes insisted he was not and had sold his soul to the actual devil himself.

RReyes-FreedByCoulson-S4E4

Reyes is offered a deal from Phil Coulson

Taking a risk, Coulson decided his best option was to let Reyes out of the Containment Module and work together. Reyes commented on the foolishness of this concept, noting that he could cause Zephyr One to crash if he turned himself into flame. Coulson noted that Reyes had saved Leo Fitz from Frederick and they were likely on the same side, both looking for answers. Coulson asked that Reyes speak to his uncle about what was going on and help them find answers, but not before threatening to throw him out the plane if he refused to help them in their current mission.

Let Me Stand Next To Your Fire 13

Reyes speaks with his uncle, Eli Morrow

Reyes was taken back to the jail where he was able to speak to Eli Morrow on S.H.I.E.L.D. 's behalf. Once he was convinced that S.H.I.E.L.D. only wanted to help, Morrow revealed that Momentum Labs and Doctor Lucy Bauer were working on a machine that defied the laws of physics. The machine blew up, "killing" everyone except for Morrow and Bauer's husband Joseph Bauer , who Morrow put into a coma because he blamed him for what happened. Morrow told Reyes that if Bauer was still alive somehow, she would now be going after " the book " which could hold the answers to not only what happened to them but how to also fix them again. [3]

Before James could kill the pair, Reyes stole his Hellfire Chain and ordered Johnson and Simmons to escape. James attempted to fight Reyes, throwing an exploding ball at his head but was shocked when his powers seem to have no effect on him, with Reyes telling James that it was time to pay for his sins before then transforming into Ghost Rider, much to Hellfire's utter horror.

Ghost Rider vs Hellfire

Ghost Rider attacks and threatens Hellfire

Using his own Hellfire Chain against him, Ghost Rider tied James up and pins him against a wall, preparing to rip his body apart. However, James remained determined to be the last of the Inhumans to die during the massacre he was planning with the Watchdogs, and instead used his powers to break the wall apart behind him. The two burning enemies then fell backwards into the Primed and Ready Fireworks 's storage warehouse. Their combined powers of causing fire then starting a chain reaction where all of the fireworks in the store go off together causing a massive explosion.

As the fireworks continued to explode from inside the building, it was eventually practically completely destroyed just right after Coulson, Mackenzie, Johnson, and Simmons had gotten out of there and watched the display from the safety of the car park. Once the explosions settled down, Reyes walked up to them while dragging an unconscious James whose body and clothing were still smoking from the intense heat, noting that Coulson had requested that Hellfire be kept alive despite what Ghost Rider intended. Reyes then left Hellfire with Simmons for medical treatment before returning to the Quinjet , keeping the Hellfire Chain for himself.

Reyes learns of Lucy Bauer and the Darkhold

With Johnson and Reyes in S.H.I.E.L.D. custody, Coulson convinces the two vigilantes to put their fight with the Watchdogs aside and focus on the greater threat - the Darkhold , an ancient grimoire that had been hunted by the Red Skull , Daniel Whitehall and even Nick Fury , and now Lucy Bauer was also currently searching for it. Fortunately for them, the person who could help them find it, Joseph Bauer , just came out of his coma before telling them that right now S.H.I.E.L.D. needed their help in order to finally stop Bauer's plans with the dangerous book.

RReyes-MissionBrief-S4E5

Reyes learns that Eli Morrow is in danger

Before long Coulson contacted Zephyr One requesting help from Mackenzie as Lucy Bauer and the other ghosts were already at South Ridge Penitentiary and were likely looking for Morrow as he had put Joseph Bauer into a coma. Although at first, Mackenzie was reluctant to bring Reyes on the mission, noting that everyone in the prison desired to die so Ghost Rider could not be trusted. Johnson, however, argued that Reyes was their only advantage as he could kill the ghosts while the other agents could not even touch them so Mackenzie agreed. [2]

Reyes furiously confronts Santino Noguera

As they made their way through the prison , Reyes once again saw Santino Noguera , and told Eli Morrow to get out of there so he could finish something. With his uncle gone, Reyes confronted Noguera, who was simply reading a Stephen King book in his cell rather than rioting . Reyes asked Noguera if he knew anything about a drive-by the Fifth Street Locos conducted on a pair of kids cruising through Los Angeles that ended with the gang shooting them and even lighting the Hell Charger on fire.

Ghost Rider in Prison 1

Ghost Rider murders Santino Noguera

Noguera revealed the drive-by was actually a hit that had failed to kill the kids but Reyes revealed that one of them was now paralyzed. Noguera was unable to reveal who had ordered the hit as he was already in prison at the time everyone who could have known was already dead, having been brutally burned alive. Reyes then noted that there was still one Fifth Street member still alive and turned into Ghost Rider before he incinerated the terrified Noguera, finishing off the Locos once and for all. The rioting prisoners saw this and returned to their cells, terrified of Ghost Rider.

RReyes-LosesUncle-Lockup

Reyes learns Lucy Bauer kidnapped his uncle

With Noguera now dead, Ghost Rider transformed himself back into Reyes and made his way outside, finding Alphonso Mackenzie with Daisy Johnson and Phil Coulson .

Returning to Zephyr One , Reyes took time alone to hate himself for his foolish mistake in leaving his uncle alone during the riot. [2]

Explaining the Truth [ ]

RReyes-GabeArrives-TGS

Reyes brings in Gabe Reyes for his safety

Fearing for his safety in the wake of Eli Morrow 's kidnapping, Reyes requested that Gabe Reyes be brought onto Zephyr One . Once Gabe arrived, Reyes had greeted him and was questioned about what was happening, with Gabe believing that Reyes was a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent which would have explained several strange things as Daisy Johnson claimed this was the truth, which had made Reyes somewhat uncomfortable. As Gabe questioned why he was being told, Johnson explained it was for his protection since Morrow was kidnapped.

RReyes-ContainmentModule-TGS

Reyes decides it's time to admit the truth

However, shortly after Gabe arrived, news came in that Jeffrey Mace was arriving in a Quinjet looking to arrest Reyes and Johnson, so they moved into the Containment Module which Alphonso Mackenzie hid underneath the Zephyr. While they waited, Johnson claimed they were being hunted because of her, but when Gabe questioned why they had to hide with her, Reyes had enough and decided it was time to tell his brother the truth. He then reminded Gabe of the time they drove the Hell Charger and were attacked by the Fifth Street Locos in the night.

TGS Robbie

Reyes explains how he became Ghost Rider

Reyes explained that when the car crashed, he had felt incredible guilt for getting Gabe killed and begged for a way to save him before being violently killed upon impact with the ground. Although Gabe remembered a Good Samaritan who had come to their aid and saved them, Reyes explained that it was not a good samaritan, but was in fact Johnny Blaze pulled up on his Hell Cycle and had infected him with Ghost Rider, bringing him back to life and cursing him with the need to bring justice to those doing evil, although Gabe was now furious that Reyes used him as an excuse for murder. [4]

Conflict with Jeffrey Mace [ ]

Reyes, however, refused to be locked in the Containment Module any longer and began pounding on the doors to try and break free while Daisy Johnson insisted it was impossible to escape. However, Reyes became more enraged and eventually transformed himself into Ghost Rider and continued to pound on the door with all his might, much to Gabe Reyes ' horror.

Although Coulson begged Ghost Rider to stop, promising him that they would find his uncle , Ghost Rider's rage could seemingly not be stopped as he continued to beat Mace into submission. However, it was Gabe Reyes who eventually managed to reach him, begging his brother to stop what he was doing, this did reach Reyes who snuffed out Ghost Rider's fire and transformed back into human form, with his skin soon healing from the burns that the transformation inflicted upon his body while Gabe still looked on his horror, much to Reyes' great shame.

Reyes is allowed to help with their mission

Despite the incident, Coulson was eventually able to convince Director Mace to work with Reyes in order to stop Lucy Bauer from using the Darkhold to unleash some kind of terror upon the world. They soon tracked Bauer to a disused Roxxon Power Plant and Reyes joined the other S.H.I.E.L.D. agents on the mission. When Melinda May questioned why Reyes had been brought on the mission, Coulson explained they had the same goal and he was the only one who could kill Bauer. Meanwhile, Daisy Johnson explained she could not hack into the Plant. [4]

Reyes then witnessed Alphonso Mackenzie and Melinda May arriving on the scene and tried to explain that he was unable to stop Morrow from killing the agents despite his best efforts, only to quickly realize that they could not see or hear him either, without any explanation as to why this was happening to him alone or how he could possibly communicate with anybody ever again. However, while Reyes was considering his current terrible situation, Phil Coulson and Leo Fitz arrived and explained they were in the same situation and could see him. Being helped back onto his feet, Reyes questioned exactly what Morrow had done to them and how they could fix it.

RReyes-TrappedBetweenDimensions

Reyes tries to understand what is happening

Following the agents onto Zephyr One , Reyes watched the footage of their attack with the other trapped agents while noting that he did not believe they were actually dead but that the lights were darker and he had a pain in his stomach. Looking at their situation, Fitz was able to figure out that what had happened was they were currently being sucked down into the Multiverse , much to Reyes' confusion. Listening to the conversations, Reyes soon worked out that Morrow was working with the Chinatown Crew but was frustrated as he could not communicate with them to try and help locate Morrow.

Still in agony, Reyes told Fitz and Coulson that he was being dragged down to Hell . Despite all of his best efforts to fight it, the Spirit of Vengeance then launched out of Reyes' body, lifting him high in the air before dropping Reyes back down to the ground hard. No longer in agony, Reyes realized what had happened as he saw Mackenzie attack agent James Davis and use his motorbike to drive off the plane to find Morrow, despite all Daisy Johnson 's best efforts to stop him. Seeing Johnson was taking his Hell Charger , Reyes got in the car in order to confront Mackenzie's new Ghost Rider. [10]

Meeting the Spirit of Vengeance [ ]

Reyes tries to communicate with Quake

With Daisy Johnson now driving the Hell Charger down the streets on Los Angeles to catch up with Alphonso Mackenzie , Reyes concerned himself with not only catching Mackenzie, but keeping his car safe from harm, as Johnson scrapped the side of it. Reyes tried to yell at Johnson despite her being unable to hear him, although he was able to send a message using the Hell Charger's indicator to tell Johnson where to go.

Deals With Our Devils 11

Reyes confronts the Spirit of Vengeance

Having arrived at a warehouse belonging to the Chinatown Crew , Reyes was forced to leave Johnson to fight off the criminals on her own while he went looking for his target. Before long, Reyes came across Mackenzie holding one of the gang members, Zhi and called out to him to stop what he was doing. Mackenzie noticed Reyes and revealed that the Spirit of Vengeance had complete control over his body who then proceeded to throw the gang member into a nearby wall and addressed Reyes directly, with Reyes claiming that although he had wanted the Spirit gone from his body for years, their work was not yet done and so he needed to return to him.

RReyes-PointingAtMackRider

Reyes attempts to stop Alphonso Mackenzie

Reyes commanded the Spirit of Vengeance to release Mackenzie as he was truly a good man not capable of Vengeance and to possess him instead as Reyes had not gained his vengeance on Eli Morrow . The Spirit of Vengeance told Reyes that Mackenzie was a man without hope who was in pain from the loss of his own daughter and that the Spirit could live of that pain for years. The effects of the alternate dimension began to take their toll on Reyes once again and the Spirit acknowledged that it had escaped where he was being dragged down to and it was never going back there.

RReyes-RegainingPowers-S4E7

Reyes is given his Ghost Rider powers back

At this point, Daisy Johnson found the possessed Mackenzie who then transformed into Ghost Rider and prepared to attack her. Seeing no other choice to save himself, Mackenzie and Johnson from a fate seemingly worse than death, Reyes made a new deal with the Spirit of Vengeance; it would give him his vengeance on Marrow and in return Reyes would satisfy the spirits lust for blood. The Spirit of Vengeance accepted the deal and merged with Reyes once again and left Mackenzie's body, dragging Reyes down into Hell in order to complete this deal Reyes had now made with him.

RReyes-ReturnToEarth

Reyes manages to return to the Earth plane

Having quickly completed his deal with the Spirit, Reyes was able to use the Inter-Dimensional Gate that had been created by Holden Radcliffe and Aida to return to the Playground . There Reyes found Mackenzie sitting alone in the room while he was looking at a photograph of Hope Mackenzie as he fell through the Multiverse gateway and collapsed from exhaustion before slowly getting back onto his feet. Despite being clearly fearful of Reyes now he had the Spirit back, Mackenzie agreed to help settle Reyes' final score by finding and getting vengeance on Morrow. [10]

Attack on Eli Morrow [ ]

RReyes-WhiteWall-S4E8

Reyes speaks with agent Alphonso Mackenzie

Having now finally tracked down Eli Morrow to the Chinatown Crew Headquarters , Reyes joined all the other S.H.I.E.L.D. agents as they prepared to storm it and take on Morrow and his men. As they prepared for the mission, Reyes spoke with Alphonso Mackenzie as he refused to wear a mask for the mission despite Jeffrey Mace wanting him to keep a low profile. Reyes and Mackenzie then briefly discussed the Spirit of Vengeance and their hope of him leaving them both for good once this mission to stop all of Morrow's devastating plans had been completed.

The Big Guns

Yo-Yo Rodriguez , Robbie Reyes and Quake

Having been joined by Quake and Yo-Yo Rodriguez , Reyes prepared to storm the building through the back door under the orders of Phil Coulson . Opening the doors and seeing that the hallway was now seemingly empty but completely dark, Quake sent in Rodriguez to use her Inhuman powers to run and the corridor and check that it was safe. However, this set off a bomb Morrow had left, nearly killing Rodriguez who barely escaped before she would have been engulfed in flames. Upon seeing this, Reyes walked in on his own.

RReyes-EMorrowHunt

Reyes searches around for Eli Morrow

As Reyes made his way through the base, he was soon attacked by several members of the Chinatown Crew who were attempting to defend Morrow, however, Reyes was able to easily fight them all off and continued on with his own mission, despite losing contact with S.H.I.E.L.D. along the way. Eventually, Reyes located a massive version of the Quantum Batteries that Morrow had built which held a Demon Core . Just as Reyes stepped inside the device, however, he was called out by Morrow who tried to convince his nephew to walk away from the base and return to the safety of home.

RReyes-BurningFace-S4E8

Reyes attempts to turn into Ghost Rider

Reyes, however, refused to leave and began to transform into Ghost Rider, forcing Morrow to impale Reyes with a shard of carbon, stopping his transformation. Morrow realized that Reyes had been hiding his secret of being Ghost Rider, noting he had heard stories of him while in South Ridge Penitentiary . Reyes explained he gained the power during the drive by shooting while Morrow still blamed Joseph and Lucy Bauer . When Reyes asked why Morrow had done it, he was told all Morrow had wanted was respect from all of his co-workers who had all looked down at him.

RReyes-StabbedTwice

Reyes is impaled twice by Eli Morrow 's power

Despite Reyes still trying to get through to his uncle by reminding him of Gabe Reyes ' view of him and how he had gained himself a Ph.D. and a job at Momentum Labs , Morrow refused to listen. As Morrow ranted about how his newfound powers were making him a god, Reyes threatened him by claiming that now the devil was coming for him. At this moment, Reyes attempted to become Ghost Rider yet again, only for Morrow to impale him with another shard of carbon through the gut before then cruelly telling him whatever happened to him next was his own fault and walking away from Reyes. [11]

Self-Sacrifice [ ]

RReyes-MockingEMorrow

Reyes mocks all of Eli Morrow 's new powers

With Reyes impaled on the carbon spikes, Eli Morrow demonstrated his powers by creating water out of nothing, which failed to impress Reyes, despite Morrow claiming it would allow him to create life. However just as they were speaking, Phil Coulson arrived having been captured, telling Morrow that he was not a god, just a petty thief. Reyes watched Coulson explain that Morrow had been stealing compounds from the Multiverse .

RReyes-RedLight-CloseUp

Reyes is checked on by Phil Coulson

As Coulson checked on Reyes' condition, Reyes explained that he was still standing but he could feel the Spirit of Vengeance being dragged down to Hell again. Coulson continued to try and convince Morrow of his mistake and the risks involved, with Reyes telling him to listen, but Morrow refused to accept the truth due to what the Darkhold had told him. Seeing that Morrow could not be stopped by simply talking him into surrender, Coulson called on his team to attack and ordered Reyes to fight, Reyes called upon the Spirit of Vengeance and began his transformation once again.

GhostRiderTransformation-S4E8

Reyes transforms back into Ghost Rider

Reyes then watched as both Melinda May and Alphonso Mackenzie stormed into the room and attacked the Chinatown Crew , followed closely behind by Patriot who then used his own incredible strength to send the men flying back with a single punch. In order to ensure they had the advantage throughout, the team were then assisted by Yo-Yo Rodriguez who put the team in better positions in the blink of an eye before striking Morrow with a Neodymium Magnet , knocking him back in the Quantum Battery next to Reyes who had completed his own transformation back into Ghost Rider.

GhostRider-Killing-EMorrow

Ghost Rider finally burns Eli Morrow to death

With Morrow trapped and the Chinatown Crew defeated, Coulson tried to pull Ghost Rider to safety with the Hellfire Chain , however, Ghost Rider so noticed that Morrow had managed to break himself free and was trying to escape. Dropping the chain, Ghost Rider grabbed a hold of Morrow and set his entire body on fire, causing Morrow to scream in agony as he painfully burned to death. Ghost Rider made no attempt to escape as a final earthquake caused the box to then fall through the Inter-Dimensional Gate and disappear into the Multiverse, vanishing for several weeks. [11]

The Return [ ]

Through the gateway [ ].

Ghost Rider returns

Ghost Rider returns from Hell

After falling through the Hellmouth, Reyes was once again trapped in Hell for several weeks, doing the bidding of the Spirit of Vengeance in the wake of the deal he had made. While in Hell, the Spirit of Vengeance was in full control of Reyes' body and throughout the duration of their time in Hell all they did was fight and kill other beings that resided in Hell. [12] Reyes entered in possession of a mystical weapon called " Hellfire chain ". [13]

Reyes finally discovered a way to return to Earth when a tear ruptured in the dark dimension when Aida used the power of the Darkhold to create a human body for herself. As S.H.I.E.L.D. prepared to make a plan to stop Aida, who had also given herself Inhuman powers and was planning a world-changing disaster, Ghost Rider emerged through the Inter-Dimensional Gate where he wrapped his new acquired chain around himself and went to assist his allies to destroy Aida once and for all. [14]

Attacking Aida [ ]

RReyes-vs-Superior

Ghost Rider attacking the Superior

Following his return to the Earthly Plane, Reyes retrieved the Hell Charger and immediately drove it towards both Aida and the Darkhold , feeling like he was drawn to them. When he claimed that he had come to get the Book of Sins back, he was attacked by Life-Model Decoys of Anton Ivanov and Sergei Mishkin .

Ghost Rider Fights Aida

Ghost Rider quickly defeated both of them thanks to his superhuman strength and his Hellfire chain to decapitate Mishkin and also managed to burn Aida's arm. In a rage, Aida attacked Ghost Rider with electricity, causing his transformation. The Rider charged at her, filling Aida with fear and teleporting away, taking the Darkhold with her. Upon figuring out that she had disappeared, Ghost Rider roared in anger. [12]

Reunited with S.H.I.E.L.D. [ ]

World's End 10

Reyes returning to S.H.I.E.L.D.

Afterwards, Reyes was found by Daisy Johnson , who brought him aboard the Zephyr One after he told her about his fight against the LMDs. Phil Coulson asked Reyes how he managed to get out and find Aida, to which he answered that the Spirit of Vengeance felt drawn to anything made of dark matter, which included not only the Darkhold but Aida as well, since she had used the powers of the Book of Sins to create her body. Coulson and Johnson quickly understood that Ghost Rider was S.H.I.E.L.D. 's best chance of killing Aida.

World's End 29

Reyes confronting Aida

When Aida attacked an International Inquiry Committee with her LMDs, Reyes joined an assault team made of Johnson, Coulson and Melinda May in order to stop them. Successfully teaming up with Johnson, Reyes managed to destroy all the LMDs and, although Aida fled once again, they retrieved the Darkhold. Reyes returned to the Zephyr One with the others and told them that he would bring the book to Hell. However, Coulson asked him not to do it immediately, since they could use it as bait to lure Aida into a trap.

Reyes discussing the Framework

While all the other S.H.I.E.L.D. agents were confronting Aida at the Playground , Reyes stayed with Johnson on the Zephyr One, telling her about his experience in Hell and helping her monitoring the vitals of Alphonso Mackenzie and Elena Rodriguez , who were still trapped in the Framework . Though Mackenzie and Rodriguez were almost wiped out of the Framework, they escaped in time and were greeted in the real world by Reyes and Johnson. [12]

Return to Hell [ ]

Ghost Rider Returns Hell

Ghost Rider returns to Hell

Meanwhile, at the Playground , Aida confronted Phil Coulson . Unbeknownst to her, the Spirit of Vengeance had made a deal with Coulson and Reyes, which included temporarily using Coulson's body as a vessel. Coulson then used his Ghost Rider powers to destroy Aida's body once and for all despite all Aida's efforts to resist him using her Inhuman powers. The battle against Aida being over, the Spirit of Vengeance returned into Reyes' body. Reyes then took the Darkhold and used his powers to open an Inter-Dimensional Gate towards Hell , once again leaving the Earthly Plane after exchanging a friendly look with Daisy Johnson . [12]

Personality [ ]

Robbie Reyes is a tough and street-smart young man due to his upbringing in Los Angeles . He showed a great level of responsibility and selflessness when he dropped out of high school during the eleventh grade because there wasn't enough money and caring for Gabe when he was injured. Despite dropping out of his education, Reyes displays intelligence, ingenuity and that he is smart but still prefers to work on cars. He is also very caring and protective over his paraplegic younger brother, Gabe, as he would act as his nurse, help support him with a job as a mechanic, and even attacked and restrained Daisy Johnson when she mentioned him since he felt she was a threat to him. When they were attacked he told anyone who would listen to save his brother rather than himself.

However, upon becoming Ghost Rider, he was turned into a ruthless and merciless killer. His targets are anyone who is guilty of a crime and is unpunished for it, especially when it is a violent crime. Therefore, if a person is not guilty of a crime, he will not kill them even if they consider themselves deserving of death for whatever reason, though he could also judge for himself if he felt they should die and would look for proof. However, it is implied that Reyes is not in full control of his actions and behavior as Ghost Rider. He has stated that he is not the one who decides his victims and threatened Quake to leave him alone since he would become angry enough that he would forget what he would do to her. Being possessed by the Spirit of Vengeance drives Ghost Rider into a hatred towards any being made of dark matter: as such, when Aida , who had acquired a biological body thanks to the Darkhold , escaped from him by teleporting away, Ghost Rider roared in rage and resorted to do anything to bring Aida back to where he thought she belonged, Hell .

Even in and out of his state as Ghost Rider, Reyes still has enough control and morality to judge people on his own, such as when he spared Quake. He then looked through her belongings to see if Quake was truly worth killing and even seemed to want to find something so that he could justify killing her. He demonstrated the capacity to fight someone without killing them, even as Ghost Rider, as seen where he spared the thugs who harassed him, Gabe and Quake, and later on, spared Hellfire during their fight, having been told that he was wanted alive. While he is displayed as cruel and ruthless to criminals, he believes that atoning for his uncle 's attack on Momentum Labs , which created ghosts like Lucy Bauer , will pay his debt to the Devil, and rid him of Ghost Rider and the curse of having to kill the guilty. He uses the powers given to him by the Devil to fulfill his personal vengeance against the gang that ran over him and Gabe, leading to Gabe's paraplegia.

Powers and Abilities [ ]

The Rider Takes Over

Reyes transforming into Ghost Rider

GhostRiderBreaksFree-TGS

Ghost Rider breaks himself free

  • Superhuman Durability : Reyes has enhanced durability in his human form. He can still be physically damaged in his human form, as he gained a cut on his face while fighting Quake untransformed, but he is still beyond capable of fighting when injured. In his human form, he was able to withstand Quake 's attacks, being undamaged when she used her powers to smash him into a van and then into several barrels. The former case was particularly evident when Quake was visibly shocked after seeing Reyes unfazed after getting smashed on the side of a van. When Hellfire threw a fireball at him, Reyes was only slightly fazed, despite the burning hole it left in his cheek. When the Spirit of Vengeance assumes control, he is almost invulnerable to harm or damage. He survived a firework factory explosion and remained conscious, unlike Hellfire who also survived but was knocked out. Also, when transformed, he was immune to I.C.E.R. shots, which merely bounced off him with no effect. Ghost Rider also resisted Aida 's electrokinesis powers, being little if not affected by her energy blasts. His durability seems to be strongest when he is fully aware of his surroundings and transformed; when he was trying to escape Coulson and was unaware of the cloaked Quinjet that was in the path of his car, he was knocked unconscious by the crash and was captured.
  • Superhuman Agility : Ghost Rider is very agile, being able to spin with his chain in order to attack Aida , who simply teleported away. He also wrapped his chain around Superior and then ducked quickly, allowing Quake to defeat him. While fighting the Sergi Mishkin LMD , he quickly pulled Mishkin towards him and then stomped on him before moving on to the next victim quickly.
  • Superhuman Stamina : Reyes is empowered with great stamina which allowed his to fight for a long time. Ghost Rider repeatedly punched the doors of the Containment Module at full force and then fought the Patriot without tiring. He also fought both Aida and multiple Life-Model Decoys at once. Along with other enemies, Reyes also fought Quake and Eli Morrow without tiring.
  • Regenerative Healing Factor : The supernatural energies that empower Robbie provide full recovery from any damage done to him. Though he received a cut on his face while battling Quake, these injuries disappeared the next day without even a scar. After getting a burnt hole in his face due to Hellfire's attacks and then transforming into Ghost Rider, he emerged afterward in his human form without any sign of being damaged at all. This means that transforming into Ghost Rider and then back to his human form can allow him to recover completely from damage instantly. Reyes has described himself as nearly impossible to kill. However, the cracks in his skull, which he sustained when he was thrown out of Hell Charger and hit the street, never healed and are visible when he transforms.

  • Heat Generation : A sub-power to his manipulation of fire and enchantment, Robbie is capable of applying heat to anything he touches. He can set any object in a high-temperature state causing anyone to feel a burning sensation without infusing fire. He has demonstrated this ability when fighting against street thugs along with Quake , causing his car to heat up when a thug touched it, burning him.
  • Heat Immunity : Because of the Ghost Rider's physiology, he is immune to heat and burning.
  • Dark Matter Detection : The Spirit of Vengeance possesses an extrasensory ability that is made to sense and track the presence of objects and beings made of Dark Matter, such as Aida or the Darkhold .
  • Empathy : Ghost Rider can look into someone's eyes and see into their heart and soul, to see what kind of person they truly are. He can examine their mental and emotional characteristics and qualities to determine if they are evil and in need of punishment, such as a corrupt cop or a teacher who was secretly a pedophile . While this ability is usually how Ghost Rider is able to find his targets, he can also rule a good person out as a target, bypassing that person's opinion of himself or herself. This was demonstrated by him having the opportunity to kill Quake , while she was even telling him to, only for him to see that she was a penitent woman who was trying to be good. [15]
  • Non-Physical Interaction : Ghost Rider can touch non-corporeal entities or at least individuals whose bodies are out of phase with the Earth realm. If the situation requires, he can hold them and completely incinerate them with his fire. He was able to grab Frederick by the arm and neck in his human form before transforming and burning Frederick into embers with his blazing hand, he was able to burn Vincent to embers with the Hellfire Chain , and he was able to do the same to Hugo with his touch, though in the latter events, he was able to do so without even transforming. Aida learned that this entity was able to make contact with her while trying to teleport, so she avoided it until she was ambushed by it using a different host .

HellCharger Attack Aida

  • Fear Negation : Ghost Rider is immune to dangerous physical conditions that normal humans couldn't withstand. When Lucy Bauer attempted to infect Ghost Rider, he was completely unaffected, not even reacting to her passing through him.

Other Equipment [ ]

  • Inter-Dimensional Gate : Reyes used an Inter-Dimensional Gate for the first time to return to the Earthly Plane after being trapped between dimensions and nearly being dragged into Hell . He was eventually sent into Hell along with Eli Morrow 's bomb to protect Los Angeles but eventually managed to return through an Inter-Dimensional Gate which was opened when Aida created a body out of dark matter. Ghost Rider lost use for the Inter-Dimensional Gates, however, since he had acquired the ability to open portals of his own with his mystical chain .

Vehicles [ ]

  • Hell Charger : The Hell Charger is a 1969 Dodge Charger owned by Reyes. When he acts as Ghost Rider, the car is able to emit flames from the engine and wheels, superheating its surface at will, and is seemingly indestructible.

Facilities [ ]

  • Canelo's Auto and Body : Reyes' place of work. Reyes began to work for Canelo after he abandoned his studies. He was one day visited by Quake , who wanted to investigate him after her Duel at El Monte Junk and Salvage against Ghost Rider.
  • El Monte Junk and Salvage : A salvage yard where Ghost Rider used to park his Hell Charger . Ghost Rider once brought there a member of the Aryan Brotherhood for interrogation. He and Quake also had a fierce duel in this salvage yard.

Relationships [ ]

Appearances [ ].

  • In the comics, Robbie Reyes bonded with the demonic spirit of his uncle after being shot by mercenaries working for Calvin Zabo , who were trying to retrieve pills which contained the Mister Hyde formula . Reyes is one of the many holders of the Ghost Rider title, preceded by Carter Slade , Johnny Blaze , Daniel Ketch and Alejandra Jones .
  • Ghost Rider is directly responsible for the deaths of at least 57 Marvel Cinematic Universe characters.
  • Reyes is the second character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to have taken over the mantle of a former superhero, with the first being Scott Lang .

Behind the Scenes [ ]

  • When asked why Ghost Rider doesn't speak while transformed, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. VFX supervisor Mark Kolpack reasoned he is much scarier that way, in addition to not actually having a voice box for doing so. [16]
  • Morgan Benoit was a stunt double for Gabriel Luna in the role of Ghost Rider.
  • Jobeth Wagner was a stand-in for Gabriel Luna in the role of Ghost Rider.
  • A Ghost Rider series was in development at Hulu , but the project was eventually canceled.

Ghost Rider  is the name of several fictional supernatural antiheroes appearing in comic books published by Marvel Comics. Marvel had previously used the name for a Western character whose name was later changed to Phantom Rider.

The first supernatural Ghost Rider is stunt motorcyclist Johnny Blaze, who, in order to save the life of his father, agreed to give his soul to "Satan" (later revealed to be an arch-demon named Mephisto). At night and when around evil, Blaze finds his flesh consumed by hellfire, causing his head to become a flaming skull. He rides a fiery motorcycle and wields trademark blasts of hellfire from his skeletal hands. He eventually learns he has been bonded with the demon Zarathos. Blaze starred in the series from 1972–1983. The subsequent Ghost Rider series (1990–1998) featured Danny Ketch as a new Ghost Rider. After his sister was injured by ninja gangsters, Ketch came in contact with a motorcycle that had somehow been mystically enchanted to contain the essence of a Spirit of Vengeance. Blaze reappeared in this 1990s series as a supporting character. In 2000s comics, Blaze again became the Ghost Rider, succeeding Ketch. In 2014 Robbie Reyes became Ghost Rider as part of the Marvel NOW! initiative.

[edit] Deal With the Devil

Over the next five years, Johnny's relationship with Crash deteriorated as John refused to take part in the show. Not understanding John's motivations, Crash grew increasingly frustrated, even accusing his adopted son of cowardice; however, John continued to practice at night, honing his skills until he surpassed his mentor. He had another secret, too: he and Roxanne had become lovers. When Crash revealed he was dying of cancer, he asked Johnny once more to take over the show, but Johnny refused despite Roxanne's disappointment. Distraught, John turned to the occult in search of answers. His studies ultimately led to a spell that supposedly could summon Satan himself. John didn't realize it, but the entity he summoned was actually the same Mephisto who had cheated Naomi Kale years before. Mephisto cured Crash of his cancer in return for Johnny's promise of servitude. Crash died almost immediately afterwards, however, in a failed attempt to set a world's record by jumping over 22 cars. Despairing over the loss of his adopted father, Johnny attempted - and made - the jump himself, seeking to honor Crash's memory. Johnny was still at Mephisto's mercy, though, and would have lost his soul outright if not for the heroic intervention of Roxanne, who proclaimed her love for Johnny and drove the demon away with the purity of her emotion (though Mephisto would return). Enlarge One night after Crash's death, Johnny found himself transformed into a skeletal being with a flaming skull. Fearing at first that this demonic form was a manifestation of his own evil side, he soon realized that he had bonded with some wholly separate entity. This merger of Johnny Blaze and a demonic force became known as the Ghost Rider, which amused Mephisto greatly. Transforming nightly into the Ghost Rider, John became involved with a local motorcycle gang, Satan's Servants. Their leader, Curly Samuels, had gained the Ghost Rider's trust, until a shocked John discovered that the soul of Crash Simpson lurked within Curly's form. Mephisto had offered Crash a new life in exchange for betraying his adopted son, and Crash had eagerly accepted. The Ghost Rider's spirit was cast into Hell, where he managed to reawaken Crash's sense of honor and love. The older man sacrificed himself to help Johnny escape, making Ghost Rider promise to protect Roxanne.

John and Roxanne then journeyed into the American Southwest, where Ghost Rider battled the Satanist known as Witch Woman, Linda Littletrees. Remaining for a time near Copperhead Canyon, Ghost Rider also fought Daimon Hellstrom, the Son of Satan. This began a long period of roaming the West, as John sought to avoid Mephisto and protect Roxanne. While in San Francisco, Roxanne was tricked into renouncing her love for John, and Mephisto nearly claimed John's soul in full; however, a long-haired stranger saved the day, driving Mephisto away at the last minute. This bearded mystery man identified himself only as "a friend", and Blaze came to view him as a heavenly figure, offering hope and salvation. This stranger would appear several more times before finally being revealed as another falsehood of Mephisto.

Discouraged over the revelations about the "friend" and fearing his growing lack of control over the Ghost Rider, John left Roxanne and spent years wandering on his own. During this time, he teamed with the Black Widow, Angel, Iceman and Hercules to foil one of Pluto's evil plots, and the five heroes founded the Champions. Though billed as "super heroes for the ordinary man", the Champions were beset by internal tensions and never truly gelled as a team. After a few months, Ghost Rider realized that he was too much of a loner to remain with the group and he bid them farewell when the Champions disbanded.

By this time, the demonic half of the Ghost Rider was exerting more and more control over his actions and personality. John found it increasingly difficult to continue his stunt rider career, surrendering the title of World Champion Stunt Rider after losing a series of grueling challenges to Flagg Fargo. A demoralized John found a sense of peace by joining the Quentin Carnival, a place he did not remember from his childhood, but which nevertheless felt like home. Blaze forged a friendly rivalry with fellow rider Red Fowler and engaged in harmless flirtation with Cynthia Randolph, a journalist for Woman magazine assigned to follow the Carnival. While traveling with the Carnival, John also ran afoul of the mad Centurious, who fed off imprisoned souls using an ancient artifact called the Crystal of Souls; this encounter stirred dark memories in the Ghost Rider. Shortly thereafter, the demonic Nightmare captured John and revealed the name of the demon within Blaze: Zarathos

Spectre Vs. Ghost Rider: Which Spirit Of Vengeance Is More Powerful?

Which of the two superhero spirits of vengeance are actually more powerful: Marvel's Ghost Rider of DC's Spectre?

Among the most powerful heroes of both the DC Universe and the world of Marvel are their respective spirits of vengeance, powerful magical beings driven to bring a brutal justice to sinners from across the world. These characters rank high among their peers in their respective worlds, but how do they compare against each other?

Which superhero universe has the more powerful spirit of vengeance: DC's Spectre  or Marvel's Ghost Rider ?

RELATED:  Marvel's Scarecrow: Why He's NOT a Batman Villain Copycat

HOW POWERFUL IS THE SPECTRE?

The Spectre was introduced during the Golden Age of Comics, one of the earliest superhero concepts. The Spectre is a near-omnipotent figure, a spirit of vengeance sent from the afterlife to enact punishment onto evil souls. The Spectre uses the near-limitless power at his disposal to torture and break the spirits of his victims before killing them - often in ironic and cruel ways that the Spectre finds "befitting" for their crimes. This makes the Spectre into a reality-warper that can use a mix of apparently endless power to enact his duty, including occasional telekinesis, time travel, and invulnerability.

To temper this fallen angel who'd become the wrath of God, the spirit is bonded to a human soul - typically a police officer, such as Jim Corrigan and Crispus Allen. Although the Spectre is almost unstoppable - often having the power to wrestle with figures such as the Anti-Monitor and contend with multiversal threats directly - the Spectre can still be commanded by divine limitations and affected by certain holy weapons. However, he's still regarded as potentially one of the single most powerful figures in the entire DC Universe.

HOW POWERFUL IS THE GHOST RIDER?

There have been many Ghost Riders over the years, especially in the modern era. People who had traded their souls to the demonic Mephisto for various reasons, the Ghost Riders are the result of the souls then being bonded with the demon Zarathos and turned into the Spirit of Vengence. With their powers, the Ghost Riders are sent to ride across the Earth and destroy sinners wherever they may be found. When they unleash their full power, the Ghost Rider is transformed into a skeletal looking being that is surrounded in ethereal and supernatural flames.

The Ghost Riders are strong and, notably, nearly indestructible by conventional weapons. Only holy weapons stand a chance of fully injuring a Ghost Rider. The Ghost Rider also possesses the ability of the Penance Stare, a move that forces the victim to suffer the pain of all their past sins at once - often burning the target soul to nothing in the process. While the Ghost Rider hasn't been shown operating on a purely cosmic scale, the bearer of the curse is quietly one of the most powerful heroic figures in the Marvel Universe.

RELATED:  Marvel's Cosmic Ghost Rider Sends Punisher Into Space

WHICH ONE OF THEM IS MORE POWERFUL?

Both the Spectre and the Ghost Riders are exceptionally powerful. Both spirits of vengeance are capable of withstanding inhuman amounts of damage, thanks to their mystical nature, and can more than dish it out in return. They can only be targeted by specific artifacts and weapons that have a holy source. But which one is more powerful? At first, it may obviously appear to be the Spectre, who's a creation of the Presence (the DC Universe equivalent of a monotheistic God). It's important to remember that the Spectre has been easily manipulated in the past. When fully untethered and unleashed, entire countries can have their lives taken by the spirit in a rage.

It's also notable to keep in mind the power of the Ghost Riders. Although there have been some that have been shown to be more powerful than others, the basic powers of the Ghost Riders make them incredibly powerful beings. They've been shown to contend with some of the most powerful beings in the universe. But the problem is, the powers of the Ghost Rider has limits. It's been shown that traits like the Penance Stare aren't enough to bring down some beings, such as Thanos. His strength can keep up with deities like Thor, but can be overwhelmed.

Others, like Mephisto, are able to manipulate and often times even control the Ghost Riders with his power. Meanwhile, while the Spectre can  be manipulated, doing so only fully unleashes its power and creates a world-threatening unstoppable force. The Ghost Riders can use their enchanted rides to travel across the globe in record time, but the Spectre can merely teleport wherever he needs to go. Ghost Rider can burn with his penance stare, but the Spectre can find a way to make your demise even more painful - and ironic at that.

Ultimately, the Spectre operates on a different level than the Ghost Riders, allowing the DC spirit of vengeance to have greater shows of power and importance. While Ghost Rider is nothing to underestimate, Marvel's spirit of vengeance just isn't as impressive as DC's.

Ghost rider: final vengeance sees a marvel supervillain become the new spirit of vengeance.

The forthcoming Ghost Rider: Final Vengeance #1 will see a super-villain become the new host for the Spirit of Vengeance--but who will it be?

  • Ghost Rider's spirit has departed from Johnny Blaze and bonded with a villain, spelling trouble for the Marvel Universe.
  • The new Ghost Rider's identity has not been revealed yet, adding to the suspense and anticipation for fans.
  • The potential for destruction and violence is high with a villain possessing the Spirit of Vengeance, presenting a threat to everything Ghost Rider stands for.

The forthcoming Ghost Rider : Final Vengeance sees a Marvel villain become the new Spirit of Vengeance. Writer Benjamin Percy has put Ghost Rider through his paces over the past two years, giving him a sidekick and sending Johnny Blaze down a horrifying path. Now, the Spirit of Vengeance has departed from Johnny, bonding itself to a villain–which could spell bad news for the Marvel Universe.

Marvel shared a first look at Ghost Rider: Final Vengeance #1’s cover on their website. The book will be written by Percy and drawn by Danny Kim, with Benjamin Su providing a special foil cover. Marvel did not reveal which villain would bond with the Spirit of Vengeance, assuring fans it would be revealed soon.

Likewise, Su’s cover does not clear the matter up either–fans must wait patiently to discover the new Ghost Rider’s identity.

Ghost Rider Has Seen a Lot in 50 Years

Ghost Rider has been a staple of the supernatural side of the Marvel Universe since his first appearance in the early 1970s. There have been many Ghost Riders throughout history , with several in the 20th/21st centuries alone, but Johnny Blaze remains the best known. After a brief stint as the King of Hell, Johnny Blaze returned to the role, and has barely had time to stop since his return. First, he fought off an evil demon threatening a small town. Along the way, he meets Talia Warroad, a former SHIELD agent and mystic, who becomes Ghost Rider’s unofficial sidekick. Benjamin Percy has given Ghost Rider his groove back.

Now, Johnny Blaze’s entire world has been upended as he has been separated from the Spirit of Vengeance. To add insult to injury, the Spirit has bonded with a villain. Marvel is still being coy over the identity of the new Ghost Rider, not even offering hints in the press release. While the most logical candidate would be a supernatural-based character, other types of villains cannot be ruled out. How exactly a Spirit of Vengeance, a tool of revenge and justice, could bond with an evil villain remains to be seen too. This could also tamper with powers such as the Penance Stare.

Ghost Rider's True Speed Revealed as Marvel Puts a Number on the Hell Cycle's Power

A villain can corrupt ghost rider's mission.

Regardless of the new Ghost Rider’s identity, a villain possessing the Spirit of Vengeance is a terrifying notion, and Johnny Blaze will have to work quickly to stop them. The potential for destruction and violence is great, as they could flip the script on Ghost Rider’s iconic powers, such as Hellfire and the Penance Stare. In the wrong hands, these powers could cause serious damage and trauma, in the process, flipping the script on everything Ghost Rider stands for.

17 Marvel & DC Characters That Can Beat Ghost Rider in a Fight

Avatar photo

Ghost Rider is known to be among the most powerful characters in Marvel Comics, and some fans would argue that he is at the top of the power hierarchy even. Ghost Rider has incredibly overpowered abilities, most notably his Penance Stare and his Hellfire manipulation. Ghost Rider cannot be destroyed easily , sure I mean, his human host can, but the Spirit of Vengeance can only be banished (for a short time) with a holy weapon or through the will of gods. 

Now with everything said, there are only a few characters in Marvel and DC comics that fit the criteria of being able to defeat the Spirit of Vengeance and cause it to retreat for a time, and this is basically what our list is going to be about. Let’s see 17 powerful Marvel & DC characters that can beat Ghost Rider in a fight. 

1. Galactus (Marvel)

Galactus Is Not in the MCU but Heres When He Might Join

Now, Galactus is pretty much known to be a cosmic being of terrifying power. He has Power Cosmic on his side and is able to manipulate reality on a small scale . This isn’t, however, the deciding factor in his fight against Ghost Rider. It’s his immunity to Penance Stare. 

Galactus is completely amoral. He lies outside the laws of morality because his actions are necessary for Universe’s survival, which means that Penance Stare can’t hurt him. Galactus would pretty easily deal with both the human host and the Spirit of Vengeance. 

12 Most Powerful Ghost Rider Villains, Ranked

2. sentry (marvel).

Sentry Origin

Sentry doesn’t have a catch when it comes to deflecting Ghost Rider’s abilities, but he has raw power. Sentry has the potential of millions of exploding suns. He has infinite strength, cannot be killed, and can move several times faster than light. 

He faced one of the most powerful characters in the Marvel Universe and lived to tell the tale with relative ease. If someone can outlive Ghost Rider, it’s Sentry. 

3. The Beyonder (Marvel)

beyonder

As a being outside of the Marvel Multiverse, The Beyonder is not bound by laws set by The One Above All, and he proved it by killing the Living Tribunal, which had to be replaced. 

Not only is The Beyonder physically more powerful than Ghost Rider, but he is also omnipotent, meaning that dealing with Ghost Rider would most likely be a walk in the park for him. The Beyonder faced far more powerful enemies and survived. He will also outlive Ghost Rider in any scenario. 

4. The Spectre (DC) 

The Spectre

If someone can stand up to Marvel’s Spirit of Vengeance, it’s DC’s Spirit of Vengeance – The Spectre . Spectre is a cosmic being, and although he has a similar purpose to Ghost Rider, he is vastly more powerful. The Spectre is omnipotent, uses magic, can change reality as he sees fit, and utilizes powerful Eldritch blasts.

Just like Ghost Rider, The Spectre also cannot be dealt with through regular means, which makes for a one tough fight. 

5. Thanos (Marvel) 

Heres the Real Reson Why Thanos Has Purple Skin

Thanos is a pretty powerful character, but the reason why he’s included on this list isn’t because of his inherent strength or energy-manipulating powers. It’s because of his psychopathic immunity.

Even though Thanos is technically not immune to Ghost Rider’s Penance Stare , he would enjoy having his sins reflected back to him and savor the pain that is brought upon him. Ghost Rider might find himself outclassed both physically and mentally . 

6. The Fallen One (Marvel) 

Cosmic Ghost Rider crushed

We’re not talking about the original Galactus’ Herald. We’re talking about the version of Silver Surfer from the alternative future where Thanos won and managed to annihilate almost all life in the Universe, including the celestial pantheon of beings. 

In this storyline, Mjolnir-worthy Silver Surfer managed to defeat one of the strongest versions of Ghost Rider – Cosmic Ghost Rider . He smashed him to death with Mjolnir, although Ghost Rider was later brought back to life by Odin. 

Is Ghost Rider Mexican? What Is His Real Name?

7. doctor fate (dc).

Origin of Doctor Fate

Doctor Fate is one of the most notable magic users in comics in general and has a vast array of powers at his disposal, almost all of which are mystical in nature. The main reason, however, why he would be able to take down Ghost Rider is his use of ancient divine artifacts, to which Ghost Rider is extremely vulnerable to. 

He is also far stronger and would be able to outlast him in a fight. 

8. The In-Betweener (Marvel)

The In Betweener Marvel

Now The In-Betweener is not exactly the first character that you think of when you think “extremely powerful,” but it’s true. In-Betweener is a bizarre character because he embodies the opposite concepts. He can be reality and illusion at the same time, good and evil, logical and emotional. He can exist and not exist at the same time. He is more of a concept than anything. 

So, why would he be so successful against Ghost Rider? Because Penance Stare wouldn’t exactly work against someone that is good and evil at the same time and none of these things. 

9. Thor (Marvel)

Thor mjolnir

Thor usually finds his way to these types of lists because of his impressive abilities and incredible physical strength and durability. But as we know, Ghost Rider is more or less immune to magical damage. Thor would have an advantage in this fight due to his enchanted hammer, which can be considered to be a divine weapon. 

As Rider’s big weakness, any type of attack generated by divine weapons would be able to cripple him, including enchanted lighting. 

10. Proteus (Marvel) 

proteus

Just like Ghost Rider, Proteus needs to have a human host from time to time. But what separates Proteus from Ghost Rider are his reality-breaking abilities and his powers of molecular manipulation. 

Proteus isn’t the most straightforward pick on this list, but his level of power would be enough to deal with Ghost Rider. 

11. Lucifer Morningstar (DC) 

Lucifer Morningstar DC

Ghost Rider notably defeated the Marvel version of Lucifer and assumed the throne of hell for himself, but don’t expect it to be that easy in DC Universe. 

Lucifer Morningstar is one of the most overpowered characters in DC comics. He is nearly omnipotent and empowered by divine forces. He is omnipresent, omniscient, has vast elemental control, and holds the mystic forces from collapsing frequently. If anyone can put a stop to Ghost Rider, it’s DC’s fallen angel. 

12. Knull 

Knull appears

Knull is a primordial being from outside of our Universe. He is the creator of Symbiotes and has vast physical and mystical powers at his disposal. Knull can control and utilize Symbiotes no matter where they are, and he is the creator of one of the most powerful weapons in Marvel Universe All-Black. 

Now, Knull might not be the most obvious choice on this list, but anyone that can decapitate a Celestial, rip Sentry in half, and defeat Thor is likely to be able to put a stop to Ghost Rider as well. 

13. Wonder Woman (DC)

wonder woman quotes

Wonder Woman is not the type of demigoddess that is able to banish Ghost Rider, we’re looking at the wrong type of pantheon here, but she does have other tricks up her sleeve. No matter how strong, durable, and fast Wonder Woman is, she would struggle against Ghost Rider’s nearly infinite potential. She does have a whole arsenal of magical artifacts, however, that would be able to severely hurt Ghost Rider. 

How Did Ghost Rider Get His Powers? (Comics & Movies)

14. franklin richards.

Franklin Richards

Franklin Richards is currently depowered, but during his most powerful days, he was the most powerful mutant in all of reality. Franklin Richards had vast reality-altering potential. He had the potential to create entire universes. He was powerful enough to make Galactus his Herald and resurrect him on several occasions . 

It’s not so far-fetched to assume that Richards, classified as a nearly godlike being, would be able to defeat Ghost Rider efficiently and quickly. 

15. The Decreator (DC)

Origin of The Decreator

The Decreator is not the most popular character on this list, and I’m not even sure that I can classify him as a “being” as he is mostly in the form of an inescapable force that devours everything. The Decreator was created at the same time as light and life and served as the exact opposite of existence. 

The Decreator’s main purpose is to slowly absorb everything, and his most striking power is the ability to spontaneously erase everything from existence. Now Decreator is probably the only being on this list that would be able to get rid of Ghost Rider for good, and since morality and other human concepts don’t really apply to him, he would be completely immune to Ghost Rider’s powers. 

The Decreator cannot be destroyed or stopped, but he can be slowed down. 

16. John Constantine (DC)

John Constantine DC

John Constantine is the most popular master of dark arts and the occult in DC comics. He has a vast knowledge of heaven and hell, magic, demon summoning, and eldritch-based powers at his disposal. Constantine is also one of the characters that are most likely to guess what Ghost Rider’s prime weakness is, and most likely to have some divine heaven-based artifact lying around his pockets. 

17. Michael Demiurgos (DC) 

Michael Demiurgos

And we finish our list with Michael Demiurgos. We’ve met his twin brother earlier on the list, and pretty much the same arguments stand for Michael as well. Michael is a divine being. His physical body is considered to be a holy artifact of great power. Ghost Rider would probably be burnt to a crisp by merely standing in Michael’s presence. 

Who do you think would be able to beat Ghost Rider? Let us know in the comments!

Ghost Panther Unleashed - Marvel's Ghost Rider/Black Panther Fusion Returns in MCU-Worthy Redesign

Posted: January 1, 2024 | Last updated: January 2, 2024

  • In epic art shared to Instagram by bosslogic, the Ghost Panther is unleashed.
  • Ghost Panther combines the histories and souls of T'Challa and Johnny Blaze, hunting down the souls of the wicked.
  • Ghost Panther is a hero of the Warpworld reality, existing as canon within the Marvel multiverse.

Marvel loves combining its iconic heroes to create new characters, and Ghost Rider and Black Panther 's combined form is one of the best - the Ghost Panther! Now, new art of this fiery force of vengeance shows that far from remaining in the comics, the Ghost Panther needs to be unleashed on the MCU as a hero from its vast multiverse.

In epic art shared to Instagram by bosslogic , the Ghost Panther is unleashed, as this former stunt driver puts a skeletal spin on Black Panther's Vibranium panther habit.

Introduced as part of the Infinity Wars event, Ghost Panther combines the souls of T'Challa and Johnny Blaze , as well as living a merged version of their histories. The Ghost Panther hunts the souls of the wicked while riding a gigantic, flaming panther.

Captain America Is Marvel's New Ghost Rider in Jaw-Dropping Fanart

The ghost panther is marvel's best 'infinity warps' hero, ghost panther exists in his own, separate reality.

During the Infinity Wars event, Gamora used the Infinity Stones to create a new reality known as Warp World - one based on Earth-616, but with half as many people. Gamora accomplished this by combining the histories and souls of two people for every one, creating some surprising 'fusions' of well-known characters. Gerry Duggan and Humberto Ramos' Ghost Panther is the result of Johnny Blaze and T'Challa's histories becoming tangled to create a new character - an exiled prince of Wakanda who was killed while working as a stunt rider in America, then resurrected by the demonic Zarathos as a Spirit of Vengeance.

Further adventures have built out Ghost Panther's world and lore, and even continued to combine him with other heroes - first creating the Ghost Hammer (Black Panther/Ghost Rider combined with Thor/Iron Man) and finally the Hammer Supreme (Ghost Hammer combined with Spider-Man, Moon Knight, Captain America and Doctor Strange.) Now a unique hero in Marvel's vast multiverse, the Ghost Panther has the best aspects of Black Panther and Ghost Rider's lore and costumes, but with his own enemies and allies, including the time-traveling villain Erik Killraven and the armored hero Pantherheart.

Bosslogic's stunning art takes the character back to basics, depicting the classic Black Panther costume bursting into eldritch flames. Fans speculate on the post that the hero would make for an ideal WHAT IF? episode, however Ghost Panther isn't a variant of Black Panther or Ghost Rider - he's a new person created from their experiences. While he started life in an unusual way, Ghost Panther is an official 'original' hero within the Marvel multiverse, meaning fans may get to see this epic Black Panther / Ghost Rider fusion as the movies dive into Marvel's many alternate realities.
