Dateline NBC’s Becky Bliefnick Murder: Where Is Timothy Bliefnick Now?

By Nikita Mahato

Dateline NBC ‘s upcoming episode will delve into Becky Bliefnick’s murder by her estranged husband, Timothy Bliefnick. The all-new episode titled “Ghost Rider” airs on the channel this Thursday, November 2, 2023, at 10 p.m. ET .

Earlier this year, in February, 41-year-old Illinois nurse Becky was shot 14 times in her own home. She had expressed concerns that if something happened to her, the estranged husband, Timothy, would be “the No. 1 person of interest.” The couple were reportedly going through a contentious divorce at the time.

According to People Magazine , Timothy Bliefnick, who once appeared in an episode of Family Feud, he stood trial in May 2023. A jury found him guilty of first-degree murder and home invasion, following which he was handed a life sentence.

Where is Becky Bliefnick’s killer Timothy Bliefnick now?

Timothy Bliefnick is currently serving a life sentence at the Menard Correctional Center, as per Illinois Department of Corrections. In May 2023, a jury convicted him of shooting his estranged wife Rebecca “Becky” Bliefnick 14 times. Judge Robert Adrian handed the convicted murderer a life sentence without parole in August 2023.

During his trial, prosecutors alleged that he killed Becky after seeing another man’s car parked outside her house on February 14, 2023. The 41-year-old’s sister also testified that she received an incriminating text message from her. It read, “If something ever happens to me, make sure the No. 1 person of interest is Tim [Timothy].”

According to Fox News , the former Family Feud contestant and his 42-year-old nurse wife were separated and going through a contentious divorce.

Prosecutors claimed that Timothy Bliefnick, who lived at least a mile away from Becky’s house, broke into her home through a second-story window and shot her 14 times at close range. The victim’s father found her dead body on the bathroom floor on February 23, 2023.

The outlet reported that the prosecution further alleged that the accused searched for ways to commit the crime on Google before executing the murder. He reportedly rode a bicycle to her house and forced open the window using a crowbar. Once inside, he shot her dead. Police arrested Timothy two weeks later, on March 13, 2023.

Marvel’s Most Underrated Mutant Once Killed THE Ghost Rider

Marvel’s Most Underrated Mutant Once Killed THE Ghost Rider

Ghost Rider’s reputed invulnerability is due to his exceptional ability to regenerate, but there is an X-Men mutant who proved the character is mortal and can be killed. The anti-hero has ruled Marvel Comics since his debut — thanks to the demonic hellfire energies. In 2007, Ghost Rider made it to the big screen and served as a huge box-office success. The supernatural story was one of the main reasons why the movie survived even after the negative reviews from the critics. 

The film portrayed the Ghost Rider as a human imbued with ancient invulnerability powers. The character, Johnny Blaze, was seen possessed by the Spirit Of Vengence which granted him supernatural powers of strength and regeneration. The comics follow the same plot, but some moments prove Ghost Rider isn’t as impervious to attacks as depicted. Ghost Rider’s invulnerability was questioned when an unappreciated mutant single-handedly killed him in the comic books. Let’s discover how this character caused havoc upon the hellfire demon.

Chamber Annihilated Ghost Rider With A Single Hit 

Marvel’s Most Underrated Mutant Once Killed THE Ghost Rider

Chamber, also known as Jono Starsmore, is the most underrated Marvel mutant in comic history. The character’s abilities come with the drawback of harming his chest and jaw, which is why he is rarely seen in action throughout the comic book lore. Despite this, the hero killed Johnny Blaze aka Ghost Rider, with his psionic powers. The event occurred in a reality wrap event of “Age of X: Universe” in 2012 when Professor X’s son Legion tried to reshape reality. The instances in the Age of X  impacted the whole world and created a wave of hate against mutants worldwide. 

Si Spurrier illustrated Chamber as an escaped prisoner in Age of X: Universe #1. Throughout the comic, he fights against evil Avengers led by an alternate Captain America. In the fight between mutant Marrow and the invisible Sue Storm , Ghost Rider captures Marrow and proceeds to use his Penance Stare ability on her. Seeing that, Chamber uses the psionic blast which obliterates Johnny Blaze in a single take and kills him instantly. 

Marvel Is Wasting Jono Starsmore’s Place In The Franchise

Jonothan Starsmore joined X-Men as Chamber in 1944’s “Generation X #1”. In addition to his psionic blast abilities, Jono possessed the power of telepathic communication, allowing him to speak directly into the minds of others. According to the Mastermind, a mutant supervillain in the Marvel comics, Chamber had the potential to obtain mind control ability only if he worked on it a bit more. Unfortunately, Marvel didn’t focus much on the character even after a mention in “Uncanny X-Men #404.” 

Chamber’s psionic powers prove that he has omega-level potential in himself. The character isn’t used anywhere near his potential, even after notable mentions by comic characters such as Pete Wisdom and Mastermind. The annihilation of the indestructible Ghost Rider proves that Chamber deserves a place at the front lines in the movies along with the other X-Men mutants. It would be thrilling to see this underrated hero in the X-Men franchise, as he will prove to be an ideal character in mutant-focussed stories. other X-Men mutants

Five Characters Who Have Defeated Ghost Rider's Penance Stare

Ghost Rider's Penance Stare is one of the most powerful weapons in his arsenal, but there are a few characters who aren't affected.

Today, we look at five characters in the Marvel Universe who were able to withstand Ghost Rider's Penance Stare.

In Drawing Crazy Patterns , I spotlight at least five scenes/moments from within comic book stories that fit under a specific theme (basically, stuff that happens frequently in comics). Note that these lists are inherently not exhaustive. They are a list of five examples (occasionally I'll be nice and toss in a sixth). So no instance is "missing" if it is not listed. It's just not one of the five examples that I chose.

Ghost Rider's Penance Stare is one of his most powerful weapons. From Marvel's official website biography of Ghost Rider , the Penance Stare is described as, "An ability picked up from his brother, Danny Ketch. By gazing into the soul of the guilty, Ghost Rider causes the affected party to relive all the harm they've done to anyone else over the years. This stare leaves its victim permanently catatonic."

However, it doesn't always work that way.

Blackheart Was Happy to be Exposed to the Penance Stare

In 2012's Venom #14 (by Rick Remender, Tony Moore and Val Staples, with plotting assists from Jeff Parker and Rob Williams), Blackheart had successfully brought Hell to Las Vegas and a group of disparate superheroes were trying to take him down. As I pointed out in a recent article , the way that the heroes tried to do so was for the Red Hulk to merge with Venom's symbiote and also gain the Spirit of Vengeance.

However, during the attack on Blackheart by Ghost Hulk Venom Rider (or whatever you want to call the combined hero), the hero had the demonic son of Mephisto on the ropes until he used the Penance Stare. Apparently, showing a demon all of his misdeeds produces the opposite effect, and actually served to POWER UP Blackheart!

Venom Overloaded Ghost Rider's Penance Stare

Years later, Venom, Ghost Rider and Red Hulk were once again working together, but this time as a regular team in a variation of the Thunderbolts. These volatile personalities often led to conflicts within the group and one such incident occurred in Thunderbolts #23 (by Charles Soule, Kim Jacinto and Israel Silva), when Ghost Rider and Venom came into conflict and Ghost Rider used the Penance Stare...

Shockingly, Ghost Rider was overwhelmed by just HOW MUCH messed up stuff the Venom symbiote had done over the years...

The Punisher Wasn't Affected by the Penance Stare at All

Six issues later, in Thunderbolts #29 (by Ben Acker, Ben Blacker, Jacinto and Silva), it was time for another member of the Thunderbolts to turn on the others. This time it was the Punisher , who sought out some mystical weapons that would allow him to take on the Ghost Rider and actually do some real damage. In their initial fight, Ghost Rider's Penance Stare was used on the Punisher...

As it turned out, the Punisher's sense of purpose in his mission was so great that he did not actually feel any remorse for any of the killing that he has done over the years. He truly believes that he has never killed an innocent and that it was all worth it to avenge the death of his wife and children. Therefore, he had no penance to serve...

He then attacked Ghost Rider with a mystical weapon, which Ghost Rider obviously did not expect to see being used against him by the Punisher, of all people (although, amusingly enough, there was a period where the Punisher was a literal avenging angel).

Carnage Laughed in the Face of Ghost Rider's Penance Stare

An amusing confrontation involving the Penance Stare occurred in Absolute Carnage: Symbiotes of Vengeance #1 (by Ed Brisson, Juan Frigeri, Dono Sanchez-Almara and VC's Joe Caramagna), where Ghost Rider encounters Carnage and attempts to use the Penance Stare on the sadistic symbiote-infused serial killer...

The problem, though, which Carnage was very willing to explain, is that Ghost Rider had specifically tried to use this on Venom before and it did not work (backfiring horrifically). Why in the world did he think it would work on Carnage?

Forgetting the recent encounter, there was even an earlier instance (during a crossover between Ghost Rider/Blaze: Spirits of Vengeance and Web of Spider-Man ) that revealed that there was a problem between Ghost Rider's Penance Stare and the symbiotes period, since they are not from this planet. So Ghost Rider really should have known better than to try the Penance Stare on another symbiote.

Conan Completely Overpowered Ghost Rider's Penance Stare

The most recent failure of Ghost Rider's Penance Stare ALSO involves a symbiote. It all went down in Savage Avengers #21 (by Gerry Duggan, Patch Zircher, Java Tartaglia and VC's Travis Lanham) where Conan the Barbarian had sort of merged with a symbiote weapon so that he and the symbiote (who both held a grudge against the sorcerer Kulan Gath) would gain their vengeance together. Ghost Rider, meanwhile, was dealing with some Kulan Gath issues as well and confronted Conan to learn where he could get to Kulan Gath. The two battled and in the middle of the fight, Ghost Rider broke out the Penance Stare on Conan...

The problem for Ghost Rider was likely tied to the symbiote, but whatever the reason, Conan was able to get past the Penance Stare easily...

Conan was even able to later destroy Ghost Rider's skull, but the resulting side effects of that action led to Conan being sent back in time to the Hyborean Age.

What Can Kill Ghost Rider in the MCU & Comics?

By: Author Todd Wahlstrom

Posted on May 25, 2023

What Can Kill Ghost Rider in the MCU & Comics?

When Marvel fans think of Ghost Rider, we may envision his flaming eyes and skull. Or, we may see him riding toward us on his Hellcycle.

Infused with the Spirit of Vengeance, Ghost Rider is not harmed by most other superheroes and can regenerate if he does suffer a wound. Ghost Rider is thus one of the most powerful Marvel characters and is considered to be immortal.

What can kill Ghost Rider in the MCU and Comics? Supernatural means could kill Ghost Rider but that takes a particular situation to happen. 

Is Ghost Rider Immortal?

What can kill ghost rider in the mcu, who else can kill ghost rider, what can kill ghost rider.

Ghost Rider riding a horse back from a cemetery

Those familiar with Ghost Rider know that one of his main attributes is his immortality. Super strength, durability, stamina, and Hellfire manipulation are among his top powers, along with immortality.

His immortality, however, comes with a hitch. If the Spirit of Vengeance is inside a host like Johnny Blaze, then Ghost Rider is immortal. If that spirit leaves or is forced out, Ghost Rider is no longer immortal.

With the Spirit of Vengeance, Ghost Rider cannot die from old age and can withstand most attacks.

Yet, once that spirit is gone, a vulnerability comes through that could allow someone or something to kill Ghost Rider.

Fans also said Ghost Rider is not immortal because he is cursed . Once a particular Ghost Rider’s time is up, he is stripped of his power, aging commences, and death is possible.

The power of Mephistopheles or Mephisto can kill Ghost Rider in the MCU. Mephisto is the devil entity that served as the primary antagonist in the Ghost Rider movies and faced off with Johnny Blaze .

Mephistopheles or Mephisto devil

Mephisto’s demonic powers and immortality provide a basis for taking out Ghost Rider. Based on the comics, Mephisto attached the demon Zarathos to Johnny Blaze and created Ghost Rider and his powers. Mephisto could thus take this power away and kill Ghost Rider.

As the ruler of Marvel hell, Mephisto is a deity entity that can change reality, shapeshift, and contend with Thor and Dr. Strange. He figures above Ghost Rider in power and is a likely candidate to take out the latter.

However, Ghost Rider defeated Mephisto and sent him back to hell in the MCU . It seems that Mephisto’s power was not enough.

Sending Mephisto to Hell

Like the comics (below), Zarathos could also kill Ghost Rider. His durability, energy, and fighting skills could be enough to do it.

Zarathos also has Magical Energy Manipulation that lets him harness mystical energies or take them away from an opponent. This mythical factor figures prominently in possibly killing Ghost Rider in the MCU and comics.

Yet, Zarathos falls short of “God” powers in the movies . It may take that full extent of power to kill Ghost Rider.

Ghost Rider Spirit of Vengeance - Zarathos scene

What Can Kill Ghost Rider in the Comics?

The graffiti of ghost rider with his bike

The character Ghost Rider is immortal and conventional weapons cannot harm him. So, physical assaults or the use of traditional power from superheroes will not kill him.

However, Daniel Ketch as Ghost Rider died at the hands of Johnny Blaze , who took the Spirit of Vengeance from him. So, this Ghost Rider probably perished, but the original one returned.

Ghost Rider lives on then and regenerates his head and other body parts when injured. His regenerative healing power is among many strengths that place him beyond regular superhero status.

In the comics, Ghost Rider’s powers are “boundless” and “godlike”, and the only thing that can kill Ghost Rider may be God . Ghost Rider’s powers come from the Spirit of Vengeance, a celestial being who cannot die.

This line of reasoning is reflected in 2010’s Ghost Riders: Heaven’s on Fire #6 , where Ghost Rider’s invulnerability and seeming immortality are apparent, and Johnny Blaze makes this claim.

Supernatural means are the only way to kill Ghost Rider then. As this video explains, the demon Zarathos absorbed Ghost Rider’s “essence” and used a “mystical” attack to take him out.

How To Kill Ghost Rider (How To Kill Superheroes)

Zarathos took away the Spirit of Vengeance power from Ghost Rider’s host, Johnny Blaze, and could then kill him.

Yet, this Spirit can find a new host, and Ghost Rider can live on.

Since other Marvel characters can defeat Ghost Rider, they could kill him through different means than how Zarathos did it.

Galactus is a case in point. This character has the Power Cosmic that he could channel into Ghost Rider to destructive ends. This cosmic energy can destroy planets , so it could kill Ghost Rider.

How Powerful is Galactus?

Since Galactus can also absorb the energy of planets, he could also kill Ghost Rider by taking away his Hellfire energy in a similar way as Zarathos did. So, Galactus provides us with two points of reference for how Ghost Rider might die.

Immortal Hulk is another character that could kill Ghost Rider. Infinite strength and intelligence provide a means for smashing down and destroying him . Although when the two battled and it ended in a draw, Immortal Hulk could inflict a blow that strips the Ghost Rider’s power away.

Immortal Hulk

Yet, others contend that Ghost Rider can only be killed by another Spirit of Vengeance like Zarathos . By this logic, it takes a celestial level of power to end Ghost Rider and not just an immortal one.

This result almost happened in Ghost Rider #44 , but Dr. Strange saved him . So the potential is there, but Ghost Rider survived.

Ghost Rider manages to find a way to continue.

Ghost Rider is impervious to most attacks, even by superheroes or villains. In the MCU, he can die by the power of Mephisto and Zarathos but this denouement did not materialize.

In the comics, mystical or supernatural elements can kill Ghost Rider. If he is stripped or separated from his powers, then his end is at hand. Yet, Ghost Rider can be immortal through another host and preserves that status in the MCU and comics.

Here's What Happened To The Ghost Rider's Suzuki Hayabusa

No matter how ballsy Ghost Rider copycats become, could anyone’s YouTube feats ever compare to the ones that the original Ghost Rider performed?

It was the early 2000s, and speed freaks the world over were united by the throb of their hearts, all thumping in unison to an unhealthily accelerated beat in their dizzying excitement over the “Ghost Rider.” The pseudonymous, presumably Swedish motorcyclist started circulating footage of his death-defying stunts , performed at police-humiliating speeds on streets all over Europe, in 2002.

And his choice of weapon was a heavily modified Suzuki motorcycle; the almighty Hayabusa. He immediately attained the mythic status and just as swiftly inspired a bevy of copycats. By the time he released his sixth video in 2012, “Ghost Rider 6.66: What the F**k,” the daredevil hooligan’s identity had pretty much been confirmed: the man behind the mask is now commonly accepted to be the former competitive racer/stunt cyclist and mechanic Patrik von Fürstenhoff .

But the true star of all those death-defying videos in the minds of many viewers was not Ghost Rider at all. It was rather his terrifyingly impressive Suzuki Hayabusa, that record-setting, insta-legend speed demon that had European regulators clutching their pearls in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

The tale of the bike, alas, comes to a sadder end as a cash-strapped Fürstenhoff allegedly raffled his indomitable two-wheeler off in an internet competition in 2012.

Updated July 2022: We have updated this article about the myth and truth about probably the most infamous Suzuki Hayabusa in the world, and its rider. We also give you insight into what the daredevil is currently up to.

Here’s what happened to Ghost Rider’s Suzuki Hayabusa, from the halcyon times of its illegal heyday to its devastating demise, to its Phoenix-like rebirth.

Ghost Rider’s Super-Tuned Suzuki Hayabusa

The all-black-clad automotive adventurer maniacally maneuvered the streets on several vehicles throughout his filmography. However, Ghost Rider could most often be seen accelerating the bejesus out of either a Suzuki GSX-R1000 or a Suzuki GSX-1300R , his most beloved Busas of all, of which he could be spotted on various year models, each with their unique modifications, natch. For instance, in Ghost Rider Goes Crazy in Europe , our eponymous hero was filmed astride a fully carbon-fiber GSX-R1000 K4.

In next year’s Ghost Rider Goes Undercover , he favored a GSX-R1000 K5 with 280+ brake horsepower. It’s that latter bike that probably won the most hearts and minds among Ghost Rider fans. This wasn’t just any GSX-R1000 K5—it was a very, very special one, built for Ghost Rider with love by MC Xpress, a Sweden-based company founded by racing bike enthusiast and amateur engineer Erik Marklund back in the 1990s.

Though it has but a small team of about nine people, including Alf Sundstrom, the company is considered the ultimate authority when it comes to turbocharging motorcycles and snowmobiles and sells its DIY turbo kits around the world.

Marklund, described by some as “a total madman,” has a global reputation for building explosive bikes, and Fürstenhoff collaborated with him several times when he was still competing on the track (under his name) in the 1990s, breaking several world records with MC Xpress­–modified bikes.

Fürstenhoff was hoping to get Marklund and the MC Xpress team to help him create a turbo Hayabusa that would set a new record at Germany’s hellish Nürburgring race. The team famously selected for the task the 2005 Suzuki Hayabusa GSX-R1000 K5, which, out of the factory, had a tested power output of 147.3 hp and measured top speed of something like 178 mph.

With WP forks, ISR brakes, and many, many other modifications, they created a bike that runs 1.2 bar of boost and made up to 500bhp at the rear wheel (though, admittedly, the bike was prone to overheating at that speed). Its top speed was mysteriously reported to be a shiver-inducing “enough.” Fürstenhoff availed himself of the souped-up power-steed for his more illicit exploits in a few of his Ghost Rider videos and was recorded performing a should-be-impossible 211mph wheelie on the bike. (He would end up setting a record for hitting a wheelstand at 215 mph.)

2012: Ghost Rider Inexplicably Gives Away His Suzuki Hayabusa

There have been various uncorroborated reports of sporadic arrests, and whether they’re true, he certainly does seem to be having money troubles: in 2015 he had to resort to a Go Fund Me to raise the money to take him to a stunt competition, while another crowdfunded effort to make a new Ghost Rider movie didn’t even get off the ground.

Perhaps it was a similar need for money or just a desperate bid to reclaim some of his early 2000s fame, that led Fürstenhoff to announce, like Ghost Rider, that he was giving his notorious and glorious turbo Suzuki Hayabusa away through a competition on his (now-defunct) website. It was never reported who won that competition, or if he even really gave the bike away or not, so the exact whereabouts of that GSX-R1000 today remains unknown.

The Death-Defying Ghost Rider Is Alive And Kicking

Though from time to time rumors of Fürstenhoff a.k.a the original Ghost Rider's death have circulated on various internet forums, a quick Google search reveals he’s still alive and (mostly) well. Though the erstwhile Ghost Rider has made some efforts to get back on the road, it seems his glory days are probably behind him. He is over 50 years old now, and it is also being said that he’s a loving father of two.

He is speculated to now be living a quiet life working at a Subaru dealership in Stockholm. Fürstenhoff, he’s still chasing his need for speed, but maybe just a little slower these days. He posted on Facebook last week that he recently suffered a serious motorcycle accident that has left him in agonizing pain, and will take some time to recover from.

12 Most Powerful Ghost Rider Villains, Ranked

Avatar photo

Ghost Rider is one of Marvel’s most enigmatic and terrifying antiheroes, known for his otherworldly powers and eerie appearance. As a demonic entity imbued with the power of Hell, he faces off against some of the most malevolent and powerful villains in the Marvel Universe. From demonic lords to ancient spirits, these formidable foes push Ghost Rider to his limits, testing his strength, willpower, and sanity.

In this article, we’ll take a closer look at some of the most powerful villains Ghost Rider has faced over the years, ranking them according to their strength, cunning, and overall impact on the series. Whether they’re hellish demons, cursed souls, or twisted madmen, these characters have left a lasting impression on Ghost Rider and his fans, cementing their status as some of the most formidable villains in the Marvel Universe . Let’s take a look at the 12 most powerful Ghost Rider villains.

12. The Orb

The Orb

The Orb, originally named Drake Shannon, was born with a giant eyeball in place of his head. He was ostracized and abandoned at an early age, even by his own mother. He came into contact with Ghost Rider (Danny Ketch) when he was hired to work on his stunt shows. He was eventually manipulated by Archangel Zadkiel and tasked to be a thorn in Ghost Rider’s backside generally. Ghost Rider was not the one who eventually defeated him; however, it was Plantman. This led to bizarre events that led to the Orb acquiring cosmic powers.

11. Deathwatch

Deathwatch

Deathwatch is a demon who, in the mortal world, can take on the identity of a notorious crime boss, Stephen Lords. Deathwatch and Ghost Rider crossed paths numerous times. At one point, Deathwatch ordered the murder of Daniel Ketch’s sister. The whole animosity between Ghost Rider and Deathwatch was mostly revolving around Deathwatch thinking of ways to lure Ghost Rider into the open so he can eliminate him. Eventually, Deathwatch’s mortal form was killed by the mystical chain, and he never managed to retrieve the full extent of his powers.

10. Kingpin

Kingpin

Kingpin is a well-known villain from the Marvel Universe, and by now, you should be used to the fact that he appeared on numerous “villains” lists over the years for multiple superheroes (and, in this case, antiheroes.) Kingpin doesn’t have any special superpower except for the fact that he is a criminal genius. Still, he made it to this list due to, at one point, attempting to manipulate Ghost Rider to do his bidding in collaboration with Lady Bullseye.

Exhaust is a lesser-known villain originally depicted as a parasite from Hell. Classified as Shadow Demon, Exhaust managed to possess Johnny Blaze in collaboration with Blackheart. After Johnny Blaze promptly got rid of him, Exhaust actually gained a physical form of its own- the catch being that form was a doppelganger of Ghost Rider.

8. Robert Blackthorne

Robert Blackthorne

Robert Blackthorne has an extremely interesting story. He was originally a member of a satanic biker gang but managed to worm his way into the devil’s ear and eventually made a deal and sold his soul. He sought power, and due to that, he and his gang all became prominent and powerful men. However, as a twist of fate would have it, the sacrifice they used for the ritual included John Blaze. John Blaze also sold his soul to the devil and became the Spirit of Vengeance, aka Ghost Rider. 

Both Ghost Rider Movies in Order

Robert Blackthorne realized what kind of danger he was. As a powerful United States vice president, he even hired Avengers to watch his back. Eventually, he sold his soul yet again to the devil, becoming Ghost Rider himself. He was killed when Punisher shot him in the head. 

7. Eddie Brock

Eddie Brock

Villain turned hero Eddie Brock got into conflict with numerous Marvel Characters over the history of its existence. One of them is, likewise, Ghost Rider. Eddie Brock battled with Ghost Rider (and numerous other superheroes) in his final confrontation before he departed to San Francisco and eventually served as its protector. 

6. Null the Living Darkness

Null the Living Darkness

Null was a paradoxical entity created by the negative emotions of a race seemingly incapable of negative emotions. The race in question was populated by angelic beings called S’raphh’s that originally lived on Earth’s Moon. After the extinction of the race, Null made his way toward Earth, where he unleashed chaos. Null is, in theory, unstoppable. However, he can be contained by goodness. Eventually, Null was defeated by Ghost Rider, and after that, he made Earth-712 his new home. 

Lilith

Lilith and Ghost Rider clashed numerous times. Even though she, like Ghost Rider, has ties to Hell, she was originally a villain of Doctor Strange. After she was accidentally released, Doctor Strange formed a group known as Midnight Sons and employed Ghost Rider’s help in taking Lilith down in an attempt to defeat her. After Ghost Rider became the King of Hell, following the defeat of Zarathos, Liltih attacked him again due to her desire to rule Hell as queen. 

4. Nightmare

Nightmare

Nightmare, over the years, served primarily as Doctor Strange’s villain, this powerful entity has a dimension of its own, and while there, it can be considered among the most powerful characters in Marvel Universe. Nightmare had dealings with Ghost Rider as well.

At one point, Nightmare attempted to invade the dreams of less mentally stable superpowered beings, and that’s how Ghost Rider got onto its radar. Nightmare forged an unholy alliance with Zarathos in a weak attempt to gain control over Ghost Rider completely, the plan failed, however, and Johnny Blaze managed to regain and keep control over himself.

3. Blackheart

Blackheart

According to his origin story, Blackheart was conceived when Mephisto was drawn to a place called Christ’s Crown, where numerous gruesome acts had been committed. The intense evil present there combined with Mephisto’s power to create a being that was supposed to embody all of the worst aspects of human nature.

Ghost Rider vs. Thor: Who Would Win in a Fight and Why?

As Mephisto’s prodigy, Blackheart was designed to be a formidable opponent for the heroes of the Marvel Universe. He has faced many characters over the years, including Ghost Rider, Spider-Man, Daredevil, and the Avengers. One of Blackheart’s most significant feats was when he used the power of Ghost Rider to temporarily overthrow his own father, Mephisto, and attempt to claim control over Hell.

2. Zarathos

Zarathos

Zarathos was the demon who merged with Johnny Blaze to become the Ghost Rider and had immense powers that even scared Mephisto. Zarathos was the source of Ghost Rider’s powers, he was the source of his rebellion against Mephisto, but after a while, the two likewise clashed. After being trapped with Centurious, he teamed up with Lilith to attempt to rule the world, creating a powerful and terrifying duo in the Marvel comics.

1. Mephisto

Mephisto

Mephisto is by far the most powerful villain that Ghost Rider has ever faced. He is also by far the most influential demonic character in Marvel Universe who had the most influence on Ghost Rider’s storylines. Mephisto was the original demon that made a deal with Johnny Blaze, unleashing upon him the ancient and powerful Spirit of Vengeance.

An intelligent caveman named “Ghost” from 1,000,000 B.C. was the lone survivor of a Wendigo attack. It was during this confrontation that Ghost was approached by a snake and was given a Spirit of Vengeance, making him the 1,000,000 B. C. Ghost Rider. Although he lost the battle (and his Hell Mammoth) to the Wendigo, B.C. Ghost Rider joined the Stone Age Avengers to battle the Fallen in MARVEL LEGACY (2017) #1.

The next Ghost Rider (that we know of) was a Sioux chieftain during the 11th century. Going by the name Hellhawk, he was part of the 1,000 A. D. Avengers, and, according to some dialogue in AVENGERS (2018) #24, had a rivalry with the Puritan Avenger/Ghost Rider Noble Kale. Hellhawk was killed by Necrosis, on orders by Belasco, to keep all Spirits of Vengeance out of Limbo. The message was definitely received.

Danny Ketch

In ghost rider (1990) #1.

Blaze hasn’t been the only Ghost Rider in the present era! When he gave up his powers in 1983, a new person stepped in to fill the hellish void. Danny Ketch is Blaze’s long-lost, younger brother, and unlike his predecessor, would get along well with his Spirit of Vengeance. Adding to an ever-growing resume, Ketch was also one-fourth of the NEW FANTASTIC FOUR, along with Joe Fixit, Spider-Man, and Wolverine.

Ghost Rider  #1

Alejandra Jones

In ghost rider (2011) #1.

After FEAR ITSELF, Alejandra Jones was introduced as a new Ghost Rider. One key difference was that Jones trained for the role; when the time came, her mentor performed a ritual to turn her into the demonic being. Jones was later trained by Blaze, but after some wild occurrences, he took back most of his power. Furious, Jones used her remaining abilities to protect her village, up until her death in ABSOLUTE CARNAGE.

This Frank Castle's earlier life seemingly mirrors that of the Frank Castle of the Prime Marvel Universe . [3] [6]

Thanos Wins [ ]

During the heroes of Earth 's last stand against Thanos , the Punisher was hit in the head by the debris of a building the Hulk was thrown into and died, his soul being subsequently sent to Hell . Willing to give anything in order to punish Thanos for slaughtering his planet, the Punisher signed a demonic deal with Mephisto and became the latest Ghost Rider. When he returned to Earth, however, Thanos was already gone and everything on the planet was dead. The Ghost Rider spent the next countless years alone, roaming endlessly and undying with no one to kill or love. After even Mephisto fell silent to his calls, he began to lose his mind. [3]

Thanos Vol 2 16 Textless

When a badly injured Galactus arrived on Earth seeking help against Thanos, unaware that the population of Earth had already been killed by him, the Ghost Rider offered the dead planet to him in exchange for the chance of punishing the Mad Titan as his herald; an offer that the Great Devourer accepted. Together they roamed the cosmos on a quest to halt Thanos' systematic annihilation of every living being in existence, which led them to become legends. Their story lasted centuries, but came to an end once they finally confronted Thanos, who beheaded Galactus as he approached to battle. The undying Rider was offered by Thanos the chance to see more evil than he could punish in a thousand lifetimes, and thus became his servant. [3]

At the behest of King Thanos, the Rider used the Time Stone to drag a younger Thanos to the future [4] so he could help his older self in winning the love of Death by killing the Fallen One , the one being who managed to elude him. [7] Unbeknownst to the Rider, King Thanos didn't need his younger self to kill the Fallen One; he needed him to kill himself in order to finally be by Death's side. [8] After the Fallen One used Mjolnir to smash the Rider to bits, [9] the time-displaced Thanos realized his older self's true motivations and went on to prevent this future from ever happening. [8]

Baby Thanos Must Die [ ]

Frank was retrieved from his dead timeline by a Odin of an alternate reality [6] and rewarded with Valhalla , [10] but he didn't fit in with the rest of its inhabitants. Seeing that Frank didn't want to be there, Odin returned his powers to him and offered to send him to any time and place he wanted. Frank chose to be sent back in the time to the day Thanos was born so he could kill him before he grew up to become a monster. Upon using his Penance Stare on baby Thanos, Frank realized he wasn't evil yet and decided to take him under his wing instead as to change his future. [6]

Cosmic Ghost Rider Vol 1 5 Textless

Knowing Galactus was to devour Markus-Centauri at that point in time, Frank traveled to the planet to try and convince the Devourer of Worlds into helping him, but he refused to do so after accessing Frank's memories. With the Watcher bearing witness, an angry Frank vowed to raise Thanos on his own, consequently creating a timeline where Thanos grew up to become something worse. The Guardians of the Galaxy of said timeline tried to change their future to the best by killing Thanos, but Frank (and, later on, baby Thanos) killed them all. They were subsequently greeted by Thanos' future self, who sported the same clothes Frank used as the Punisher. [11]

The future Thanos showed Frank the authoritarian world he had built on his example, including a past version of himself living with his wife Maria . Realizing the consequences of his intervention in his life, Frank killed the future Thanos and returned his baby self to the past, erasing the alternate timeline. Death appeared before Frank to confirm that his actions had nonetheless instilled the baby Thanos with the bloodlust that would make him her agent. [12]

Destroying History [ ]

By his own admission, Frank spent the following years on Earth interfering with the lives of its heroes until he tried to save his own family from their deaths. Uatu intervened, putting history on the right track and using the Infinity Gauntlet to make everyone - including Frank himself - forget his actions. He spent years imprisoned in the Raft until he pieced his memories together and was freed through Uatu's indirect intervention. Frank also claimed that he later killed the Watcher during his fateful encounter with Nick Fury following the robbery of his citadel and one of his eyes. [13]

The Final Gauntlet [ ]

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 5 3 Textless

Some time afterwards, Frank sensed Thanos' death at the hands of his daughter Gamora . Soon after discovering his beheaded corpse, he was approached by Eros , who had come to collect it and his brother's will. [14] He was present at the gathering held by Eros to show Thanos' will, which revealed that he had placed his consciousness into another living being before dying. As those gathered discussed what to do with this new information, they were attacked by the Black Order and sucked into a black hole . Frank was rescued thanks to Beta Ray Bill and recruited into the Guardians of the Galaxy by Peter Quill . [15]

After clashing with Groot and Bill, he left the group and joined the Dark Guardians in their quest to hunt down Gamora as the most likely host for Thanos's resurrection. [16] They tracked her down using her former lover Nova and clashed with the Guardians of the Galaxy to take her. [17] When they were ready to execute her, however, they were attacked by the Asgardian goddess Hela and the Black Order. Hela easily took down Frank using her power over dead beings, leaving him a flaming skeleton. Hela then revealed that Starfox had been Thanos' chosen vessel all along. Thanos' consciousness asserted itself in Starfox, and he left with Hela and the Order. [18]

Frank was also forced to come with Hela. During the Guardians and Dark Guardians' assault on Knowhere to stop Thanos' resurrection, Hela was knocked off a platform, causing her control over Frank to weaken. Star-Lord attacked Frank, but Frank was in no shape to fight and told Star-Lord that without Hela's power, he could no longer hold himself together and eventually collapsed into a pile of bones. Frank was then transported into Hell, where he was greeted by its ruler Johnny Blaze . [19]

Challenge of the Ghost Riders [ ]

Blaze later forced Frank to possess Avengers Mountain and attack the Avengers when they tried to exorcise Robbie Reyes . [20]

Revenge of the Cosmic Ghost Rider [ ]

Leaving the Earth behind, Frank traveled the cosmos to punish villains for their sins. This got him in trouble with the Shi'ar Empire and he ended up subdued by the Imperial Guard . Due to his crimes, Frank was sent to an alien prison located in an asteroid which was ran by the Shi'ar. When some of the other prisoners began beating him up, he transformed into the Cosmic Ghost Rider and started to kill them. This, however, freed a mysterious creature imprisoned there that drained the Rider of his power, leaving him nothing but a skull. Due to the danger the creature posed, one of the guards activated the prison's self-destruct program, destroying the prison and seemingly the creature as well.

Months later, some space pirates arrived and salvaged what remained of the prison and its prisoners, including the Rider's skull. Frank then awakened and killed every member of the crew in order to rebuild his own body, until only Camille Benally was left. After destroying the entire ship, he used his Penance Stare on the girl, but found out she was actually innocent. [21] The duo fought various criminals throughout the universe, eventually coming into conflict with the Cosmic King , who threw Cammi into a wormhole. [22] Enraged, the Cosmic Ghost Rider tried to destroy the Cosmic King to no avail, as he proved to be too powerful. Once the Rider was able to get the upper hand, the Cosmic King offered Frank's long lost soul, which the King had stolen from Mephisto , back to him. Frank accepted the offer, [23] then killed the Cosmic King.

When Cammi arrived, having briefly traveled through time because of the wormhole, she revealed the Cosmic King was actually possessed by an "ancient space demon parasite," which originally wanted Frank as its next host, it being the same creature Frank accidentally freed from the Shi'ar prison. The Mephisto from Frank's home reality arrived soon afterward, wanting to retrieve the soul he rightfully owned. Since Frank had already reclaimed his soul, he claimed Cammi's instead. [24] Fighting his way through Hell, Frank eventually returned to the Hotel Inferno and confronted the Mephisto of the Prime Marvel Universe. Mephisto refused to give Cammi's soul back, but offered a deal exchanging it for Frank's soul. He accepted, became the Cosmic Ghost Rider once more, this time in service to the Mephisto of the Prime Marvel Universe, and revived Cammi. Sadly, the "ancient space demon parasite" that had possessed the Cosmic King immediately seized Cammi and turned her into its next host. The demon then drained Frank's powers yet again, forcing him to drain the lifeforce of various Brood to rebuild himself months later so that he could begin his quest to free Cammi once more. [25]

Frank eventually found himself chasing some thieves into a black hole . As he fought them, they all ended up inside the black hole, causing him to be fractured into two Cosmic Ghost Riders. The newly created Cosmic Ghost Rider went on his separate way, while Frank had no recollection of what had happened. [26]

In the ensuing month, Frank decided to leave the life of Cosmic Ghost Rider behind and opted to work in tavern on an alien planet owned by Marlow and his daughter Axelle . Unfortunately, he was attacked by bounty hunter Kral Dravitt who was after him. During the fight, Marlow was killed, [27] causing Frank to take out the bounty hunter and rescue Axelle. While they were preparing to get away, Monark Starstalker , another bounty hunter hired by the Shi'ar to hunt Frank, ambushed them which forced Frank to resume his identity of Cosmic Ghost Rider. [28] He and Axelle were able to escape but felt that he needed to go to Fueling Station X987. There he met with Valkyrie who revealed to him the existence of a second Cosmic Ghost Rider, someone Frank had seen in his dreams and was probably the cause of his powers draining. [29]

Spirit of Vengeance : As the Ghost Rider, Castle has the following powers:

  • Hellfire Manipulation: Like all Ghost Riders, Castle is able to manipulate and project hellfire as well as to infuse objects and vehicles with it. [4] He has demonstrated the ability to unleash omnidirectional hellfire blasts that incinerate almost everything around him. [3]
  • Superhuman Strength [30]
  • Superhuman Durability [4]
  • Penance Stare : Castle possesses the supernatural ability to cause any individual who stares into his eyes to see and feel every bit of pain they have ever inflicted on anyone in their entire lifetime for all eternity. [7]
  • Immortality: Being a Spirit of Vengeance makes the Rider immortal. He has lived for millions of years and has not aged in the slightest. [4] The only way for him to die is to inflict a sufficiently powerful injury. [9]
  • Remote Possession: While he was overshadowing the Bull Celestial carcass the cosmically charged Ghost Rider could possess other things through his ghostly proclivities. Such as the various Iron Man armor's in it's armory. [20]
  • Mystical Chain Projection: Castle can manifest a mystical chain that is capable of growing in length, cutting through almost anything, and engulfing enemies in flames through contact. [6]

Power Cosmic : Like all the other Heralds of Galactus before him, the Rider wields the Power Cosmic. Presumably, all of his physical capabilities have been enhanced; to what extent, though, hasn't been revealed. So far, the additional powers he has demonstrated thus far are:

  • Interstellar Travel: The Rider has ability to travel interstellar distances via his Hell Cycle. [4] [3]
  • Energy Projection: The Rider can fire devastating blasts of cosmic energy from his hands. [30]
  • Cosmic Penance Stare: By infusing his Penance Stare with the Power Cosmic, the Rider can incinerate any sinner he uses it against, regardless of whether or not said sinner feels any remorse. [30]
  • Telekinesis: Castle demonstrated potent telekinesis by near-instantaneously dismantling an entire space-ship. [21]

Seemingly those of the Punisher of the Prime Marvel Universe . [3]

Mental Illness: The countless years the Rider had spent on Earth alone had caused him serious mental issues. [3]

Paraphernalia

Punisher's Suit [6]

Ghost Rider's Chain : Chains forged from the bones of Cyttorak that are practically indestructible as not even someone as strong as Thanos could break them. [4] The chains can also be used a whip. When combined with the Rider's super strength, they are capable of ripping through opponents. [33]

A pair of firearms. [4]

Transportation

  • Cosmic Ghost Rider is based off DC Comics Lobo . [34] Ironically, Lobo himself was inspired by the Punisher. [35]
  • In the last issue of Cosmic Ghost Rider when Frank asks Death if Thanos becoming her agent is inevitable, she confirms this and then implies through her comment, "And I choose many Francis Castle", that Frank is also one of them.

Screen Rant

One x-men hero has a stronger version of ghost rider's greatest power.

Ghost Rider's strongest attack has the power to make even the strongest god-tier beings quiver in fear, but one X-Men hero has a better version of it.

There are few attacks in the Marvel Universe more terrifyingly detrimental than Ghost Rider ’s Penance Stare, but one X-Men hero is able to top it by effectively eliminating the hellish technique’s one and only shortfall.

The Penance Stare is an attack within the arsenal of anyone who becomes a Ghost Rider as it perfectly captures the cosmic purpose of the Spirit of Vengeance. Anytime Ghost Rider has a sinner in his clutches, he can gaze into their eyes and burn their souls with their own past sins. If Ghost Rider does the Penance Stare to a murderer, then that murderer will feel the pain of everyone they’ve ever killed. This usually puts people in a catatonic state as their souls writhe in eternal agony within their bodies, but other times the attack doesn’t work at all, even against someone as obviously villainous as Red Skull or Thanos. Unfortunately, the Penance Stare doesn’t have any impact on those who have no shred of remorse for the things they’ve done, even passively. So, if someone is truly evil to their core and actually enjoys the atrocities they’ve committed without the slightest hint of wavering in their sadism, then they are ironically immune to Ghost Rider’s soul-burning attack–a shortfall that one X-Men member effectively corrects.

X-Man’s Penance Stare Works on Everyone, Unlike Ghost Rider’s

In X-Man #3 by Jeph Loeb and Steve Skroce, Nate Grey aka X-Man and his team of mutant heroes are being attacked by Apocalypse’s deadliest assassin, Domino. This issue takes place within the alternate timeline of the Age of Apocalypse , which means the world is much crueler than Earth-616 and some heroes/antiheroes like Domino have opted to use their powers for evil rather than good. Domino, for instance, is a particularly challenging foe, as she has the power to manipulate probability to work in her favor in any given situation. Basically, her power is manufactured luck–so when it would be ‘lucky’ for her to murder a room full of targets, that’s exactly what she can make happen. However, Domino underestimated the power of one target in particular: Nate Grey. Nate Grey is essentially this universe’s version of Cable, who is able to use the full extent of his god-tier mutant powers as he isn’t constantly distracted by fending off a techno-organic virus. Right when it seems like Domino is going to win and succeed in killing everyone Nate cares about, X-Man uses his telepathic powers to infiltrate Domino’s mind and make her feel the pain of everyone she has hurt–which resulted in putting Domino in a permanently catatonic state.

X-Man Is a Mutant Spirit of Vengeance

While X-Man isn’t able to burn the souls of his victims the way Ghost Rider can with his Penance Stare, the pain they feel is essentially the same, as is their resulting physical state upon their defeat. Plus, Nate’s version doesn’t discriminate against true psychopaths as earlier in this very issue, Domino admits to truly enjoying inflicting pain on others. Domino isn’t some hapless victim of Apocalypse, forced to do his bidding against her will–she loves killing people for her all-powerful boss. Based on the rules set by the likes of Thanos and Red Skull, this version of Domino would be immune to Ghost Rider’s Penance Stare , but not X-Man’s.

Even the process of inflicting this attack is exactly the same, as X-Man forces Domino to ‘look into his eyes’ before he makes her feel the pain of all her past victims. All-in-all, the two attacks are identical, with the only difference being that the version used by the X-Men ’s strongest hero is actually stronger than Ghost Rider ’s Penance Stare.

Actor Christian Oliver, 2 daughters die in plane crash

  • Oops! Something went wrong. Please try again later. More content below

Actor Christian Oliver has died in a tragic plane crash in the Caribbean alongside his two daughters.

Oliver, known for his roles in “ Speed Racer ” and “Valkyrie” was 51 years old.

Deadline reports that the small plane they were in crashed into the ocean off a Caribbean island on Thursday. The plane’s owner and pilot, Robert Sachs, also passed away in the accident.

Oliver, whose real name is Christian Klepser, and his daughters Madita, 10, and Annik, 12, were the only passengers on the flight according to TMZ .

Authorities say the flight took off from the J.F. Mitchelle Airport, known as the Bequia Airport, which serves St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and was headed to St. Lucia.

“Shortly after takeoff, the aircraft experienced difficulties and nose-dived into the ocean,” the Royal St. Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force said in a statement obtained by Deadline. “Fishermen and divers from Paget Farm went to the scene of the incident in their boats to render assistance.”

Local reports say that the last communication from the plane was when the pilot radioed the tower, which was not long after takeoff. The pilot was reportedly having issues with the aircraft and was going to turn back.

All four bodies have been recovered.

The cause is currently under investigation.

Tributes have been posted to social media in honor of Oliver from his colleagues of his last film “Forever Hold Your Peace.”

“This is our 5th film together.  @christianoliverofficial  and me produced this one, and this is our last day of filming! We talked about producing a film together for years and finally did it! Thank you for being a great colleague, actor and friend,” wrote director Nick Lyon to Instagram .

Actress Bai Ling, who played his lover in the film, also took to the platform for a heartfelt tribute.

“He was so. nice, (worked) so hard and such a brave #actor and a beautiful gentle person,” she wrote in part alongside one of the last photos the two took together.
