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. [1]

Discovered by Quake [ ]

TG Robbie Reyes

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. [1]

Helping Gabe [ ]

RobbieReyes-S4E1-Ending

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.

ReyesBros-S4E1

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.

RReyes-CrowBarAttack

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.

DaisyRidesHellCharger-Fire

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.

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.

Ghost Rider kills Frederick

Reyes burns and kills Frederick

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.

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 .

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]

Despite holding up his end of their dead, Reyes chose to go with Coulson and Mackenzie when they get an alert about an Inhuman asset who was currently in danger.

RReyes-Transformation-S4E4

Ghost Rider reveals itself to Hellfire

Reyes joined S.H.I.E.L.D. as they traveled to a storage unit where Daisy Johnson and Jemma Simmons were being attacked by Hellfire , who had betrayed them to join the Watchdogs . 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.

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.

RReyes-Quinjet-S4E4

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. [3]

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]

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.

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.

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 . When Reyes questioned where his uncle was, Mackenzie made it clear that he did not know, noting that he had left them alone together. To Reyes' horror, it was discovered that Lucy Bauer had found and kidnapped Morrow during the chaos of the riot and they had no idea where they had gone. 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.

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 [ ]

However, before long, Jeffrey Mace discovered their location and attempted to have them all put into his custody due to the damage that could be done to S.H.I.E.L.D. 's reputation if it was discovered that they were aided a known fugitive and murderer. Reyes confronted Mace about if he could find Eli Morrow , but Mace was not interested in that mission anymore despite Phil Coulson and Leo Fitz 's objections.

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. Despite Fitz's insistence to Director Mace that he could not escape, Ghost Rider quickly proved them all wrong by smashing the doors apart and stepping outside in a now furious rage.

Ghost Rider furiously attacks Jeffrey Mace

Targeting the man keeping him from vengeance, Ghost Rider then attacked Director Mace, only to discover the Director had incredible strength and durability. Ghost Rider was launched across Zephyr One but continued fighting against the Director, who insisted upon being the one to battle him. Before long, Ghost Rider managed to pin Mace against a staircase and began hitting him repeatedly, attempting to beat him to death and refusing to stop even when Coulson tried to pull him away, throwing Coulson back in his fury for vengeance against Director Mace.

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]

Destroying Lucy Bauer [ ]

Reyes is confronted by Lucy Bauer

As Reyes made his way through the Roxxon Power Plant with Phil Coulson and Melinda May , they discovered that they could not communicate with Zephyr One from inside the base due to losing signal. As they continued forward, they were soon confronted by Lucy Bauer , with Reyes promising that he would deal with her. Reyes told Bauer that his uncle was Eli Morrow , noting that he was Robbie not Gabe Reyes as his eyes burned red.

RReyesKillingLucy

Reyes burns Lucy Bauer to a violent death

Bauer explained that Joseph Bauer had hired the Fifth Street Locos to kill Morrow and the Reyes brothers should not have been harmed, explaining that Morrow had transformed her into this ghostly monster during his attempts to play god, although Reyes refused to believe her stories. Although Bauer attempted to infect Reyes by walking through him, he was unaffected and grabbed her arm, promising to make her pay. As Bauer noted he had the same fire in him that Morrow had, Reyes promised that his fire was worse before engulfing Bauer in flames as she screamed in agony.

RReyes-RunningFromBlast-TGS

Reyes is consumed by a blast of energy

With Bauer finally dead and the threat she posed against the world seemingly over, Reyes attempted to return to the Quinjet while Coulson and May found and rescued his uncle and reclaimed the Darkhold . However, as Reyes ran through the Power Plant's hallways to freedom, he was chased down by a blast of incredible energy from the center of the plant, which soon engulfed not only Reyes but also Coulson and Leo Fitz before they could escape, seemingly destroying all evidence of them as the Power Plant disappeared of all life, leaving only silence remaining. [4]

A New Deal [ ]

Reyes tries and fails to talk to Eli Morrow

In the wake of the blast, Reyes explored the corridors until he finally came across Eli Morrow ; however, when Reyes attempted to attack Morrow for lying about Lucy Bauer , he discovered he passed straight through his body and that Morrow was now unable to hear his voice. Reyes then witnessed Morrow using his own newly found powers to massacre an entire S.H.I.E.L.D. unit by impaling all of them with his carbon shards before calmly walking away, leaving a solid wall of carbon behind him to ensure no other agents could follow him as he escaped.

Reyes locates Phil Coulson and Leo Fitz

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.

RReyes-FeelingTheCold

Reyes feels a terrible cold through his body

Reyes went with Fitz to listen in as Jeffrey Mace contacted Jemma Simmons to inform her of Fitz's situation. While Reyes complained of serious pain in his stomach getting worse, Fitz listened to Mace's conversation and realized Mace and Burrows had sent Simmons on a secret mission with Ellen Nadeer and was now unable to reach her. While Fitz worried about Simmons and threatened to hit Mace when he was able to get back to Earth's dimension, Reyes collapsed in agony as he experienced unbearable cold, claiming he needed to get sunlight or some kind of warmth as he was currently dying.

RReyes-SpiritSuckedOut

Reyes feels the Spirit of Vengeance leaving

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 [ ]

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.

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.

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]

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 .

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.

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.

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]

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.

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.

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.

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]

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.

MTNB Ghost Rider

GhostRiderKillsHugo1

  • 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

Biography [ ]

Zarathos [ ].

Zarathos was a demon who fought the ancient Spirits of Vengeance, and corrupted a number of their overseers which were called his "Fallen". Although Zarathos promised to increase their power, but he was actually using their powers to further augment himself. After gaining enough power and worshippers, Zarathos challenged Mephisto for ownership of his realm, but he was tricked by the demon by having Centurious. Due to the Centurious lacking souls, Zarathos' powers were useless, and his followers abandoned him when they realized they couldn't beat Mephisto.

After defeating Zarathos, Mephisto would forcibly bond him to mortals a mockery of the Spirits of Vengeance. He was contained inside a mystic relic known as the Soul Chamber, but he was once released by the Beyonder in an attempt to tempt Spider-Ma into allowing the death of the Kingpin. On one occasion, Mephisto made a deal with a mortal named Johnny Blaze, and had Zarathos bond to Johnny when Roxanne Simpson attempted to stop him. It was later revealed that the angel Zadkiel was called by Roxanne, and decided to place the spirit of vengeance into Johnny. Zarathos hid inside Centurious until he was freed by Lilith, and joined her in trying to take over Earth. The two were opposed by the Midnight Sons, and was destroyed by the team and the destruction of the Fallen.

Incarnations [ ]

Johnny blaze [ ].

Johnathon "Johnny" Blaze is the son of Barton Blaze and Naomi Kale, and is the older brother to Barbara and Daniel. Johnny and his family spent their early years in the Quentin Carnival, but when his father died in a stunt accident, his mother took his siblings and left. He was then adopted by the Simpson family, and became close to Craig "Crash" Simpson's daughter, Roxanne. Johnny became close to Crash, who taught him to ride a motorcycle and made him a member of his stunt show. When he was fifteen, Crash's wife Mona was mortally wounded when Johnny was nearly killed when practicing a dangerous stunt. On her deathbed, Mona asked Johnny to quit riding, and he swore to her that he would.

Over the next five years, Crash became frustrated with Johnny since he refused to take part in the show or do any stunts. Despite this, Johnny continued to practice at night, and honed his skills as he started a relationship with Roxanne. When Crash revealed that he was dying of cancer, Johnny turned to the occult and summoned Satan himself to make a deal. Unbeknownst to Johnny, he actually summoned Mephisto, who had cheated Naomi Kale of their deal for Johnny not to become the Ghost Rider. Johnny made a deal with Mephisto to cure Crash's cancer in return that Blaze served him when he called, but Crash died immediately afterward in a stunt accident.

Mourning the lost of his adoptive father, Johnny honored Crash by making the jump, but had to accept that the devil was coming to collect his soul. Mephisto would have succeeded if Roxanne hadn't intervene and drove Mephisto away, and if Zadkiel hadn't came to put the spirit of vengeance into Blaze. Despite Mephisto being driven away, Johnny later turned into a skeletal being with his skull on fire, which would be known as the Ghost Rider. Johnny didn't understand what happened, but came to understand that an entity had bonded with him and he would transform when around evil.

Johnny was eventually killed and sent to Hell, where he managed to escape but brought Lucifer along the way. Though Johnny returned to Earth's plane intact, Lucifer did not, and exploded into shards that would possess 606 bodies. Once Johnny learned about Lucifer's plan to have him kill every possessed body so he could form on Earth, he and the Ghost Rider agreed to work together to stop him. When confronting the last bodies of Lucifer, he learned that Zadkiel was called by Roxanne unknowingly, and that he the angel had played a part of Blaze receiving Zarathos.

Danny Ketch [ ]

Daniel "Danny" Ketch is the son of Barton Blaze and Naomi Kale, and the younger brother to Johnny Blaze and Barbara Ketch. Danny and Barbara were given to a widowed woman named Francis Ketch when they were young, as Naomi wanted to rid them of the family curse. Years later on Halloween night, Danny and Barbara went to a graveyard where they stumbled upon a confrontation between two gangs. One gang was led by Deathwatch and the other was made up of people that belonged to the Kingpin, and the two gangs began to fight each other. Deathwatch became aware of Barbara when she cried out, and she was shot in the chest with an arrow by a henchman.

Danny grabbed his sister's body and ran away to a nearby junkyard, and hid there until he noticed a motorbike with a glowing gas cap. Danny touched the gas cap with his blood-strained hand and transformed into the Ghost Rider, due to him having his sister's blood on him. The Ghost Rider proceeded to torture and fight Deathwatch's henchman, and later turned back into Danny. Barbara was taken to the hospital, but was killed by Blackout, who had learned of Danny's secret identity. Danny and his friend, Jack D'Auria worked together to fight Deathwatch to avenge Barbara.

Robbie Reyes [ ]

Roberto "Robbie" Reyes is the son of Alberto and Juliana Reyes, and is the brother to Gabe, who lived in California. Both their parents died, and the two lived in a corrupt neighborhood called Hillrock Heights, where gangs would fight. Robbie started to work as a mechanic in East Los Angeles, and Gabe looked to him as a hero. Eager to move him and his brother to a safer neighborhood, Robbie entered a street race to earn fifty thousand dollars so he could move out of Hillrock Heights. Unbeknownst to him, the car he used for the street race was inhabited by a ghost, and the ghost possessed Robbie when he was nearly engulfed in fire that was started by his pursuers. Robbie transformed into the Ghost Rider, and gave chase and managed to take out a handful of his attackers, but some got away.

The Origin of Ghost Rider and Three Iconic Riders

Ghost Rider, a character from Marvel Comics, is a supernatural being that has captured the imagination of fans worldwide.

In this blog, the Dcmarvel explore the origin of Ghost Rider and examine three of the most iconic riders: Johnny Blaze, Carter Slade, and Robbie Reyes.

The Origin of Ghost Rider

Over 20,000 years ago, the original Spirits of Vengeance engaged in a conflict with a soul-snatching demon named Zarathos. The Blood, a powerful group, created the Medallion of Power to secure victory. However, they found out that a part of Zarathos was also trapped inside the Medallion, which led them to divide the powerful relic into pieces. The Blood entrusted the spiritual bloodlines of two families with the Medallion’s fragments, and a Blood named Caretaker was assigned to safeguard and preserve them. When someone gets the power of ghost rider, that means they have the power of Spirits of Vengeance

Johnny Blaze: The Original Ghost Rider

ghost rider marvel origin

Johnny Blaze is the most well-known and iconic Ghost Rider. He made his first appearance in Marvel Spotlight #5 in 1972. Johnny’s origin story, as described above, has been retold in various forms over the years.

As Ghost Rider, Johnny has many supernatural abilities, including superhuman strength, the ability to generate hellfire, and a healing factor. He also rides a motorcycle that is imbued with mystical powers. Johnny has appeared in numerous comic book series and featured in video games, television shows, and movies.

Carter Slade: The Phantom Rider

Carter Slade: The Phantom Rider

Carter Slade was the first character to take on the mantle of Ghost Rider in the 1940s. However, he was later renamed the Phantom Rider to avoid confusion with Johnny Blaze’s Ghost Rider. Slade wore a white costume as the Phantom Rider and rode a white horse. He did not have the same supernatural powers as the later Ghost Riders, but he did possess excellent horse riding and shooting skills. Slade appeared in some Western-themed comic book series before being reintroduced as a Ghost Rider in the 1990s.

Robbie Reyes: The All-New Ghost Rider

Robbie Reyes: The All-New Ghost Rider

Robbie Reyes is the most recent character to take on the mantle of Ghost Rider. He made his first appearance in All-New Ghost Rider #1 in 2014. Reyes is a young man from Los Angeles who becomes Ghost Rider after coming into contact with a mysterious, supernatural car. Unlike the previous Ghost Riders, Reyes does not ride a motorcycle. Instead, he drives a car that can transform into a phenomenal vehicle. Reyes has been described as a more modern, street-level version of Ghost Rider.

The character of Ghost Rider has a rich and complex history. From Johnny Blaze’s tragic origin story to the more recent adventures of Robbie Reyes, Ghost Rider has captured the imagination of fans for decades. Whether riding a motorcycle or driving a supernatural car, Ghost Rider remains one of the most influential and beloved characters in the Marvel Comics universe.

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.

Origin of the Ghost Rider last edited by aphillips17 on 05/13/23 09:44PM View full history

Johnny Blaze's first appearance! The world has never seen anything like the mysterious new Ghost Rider -- and neither have you!

Johnny Blaze, the Ghost Rider, rides through the streets of New York City and accidentally witnesses two men killing another. Wanting no part of what's happened, he rides on, but is then chased by the killers. Upon trapping him in an ally, the men are shocked to see Blaze's flaming skull. The Ghost Rider points his finger, causing flame to erupt on the ground. The men make a run for it, and Blaze rides back to Madison Square Garden, where he transforms back into his human form. He thinks back to try and remember what happened, hoping to find some answers in the past.

Johnny's father, Barton Blaze, died in a motorcycle accident when his son was very young. Johnny was then adopted by Crash Simpson, another stunt rider that ran his own cycle show with his wife Mona and daughter Roxanne. Johnny grew into adolescence, and had followed his step-father's footsteps by taking up cycle riding. When he was fifteen, his motorcycle caught fire during a practice session. Though he attempted to save his family, Mona Simpson is killed in the bike's explosion. Before she dies, she makes Johnny promise her that he'll never ride in the show due to the danger, which he agrees to. Five years later, Johnny is discovered riding in secret by Roxanne, who tells him that she is in love with him. Later on, Crash tells the two that he has cancer,and that the show's performance at Madison Square Garden will be his last, if he lives to even see that.

Determined to keep his step-father from dying, Johnny researches some occult books, finally using them to summon "Satan" (actually the demon lord Mephisto, in one of his many forms). In exchange for Johnny's soul, the devil will spare Crash Simpson from the cancer that's killing him. Three weeks later, Crash tells Johnny that he plans to try and break the world's cycle jump record at the Garden. Johnny knows he'll be fine, due to the deal he made with Satan. When Crash attempts to jump it, he doesn't make it, and dies in the resulting accident. Furious at what happened, Blaze suits up, mounts a bike, and does the same stunt... and makes it, breaking the world record. That night, Satan returns to claim Johnny's soul, claiming that he only said he'd spare Crash from the disease and nothing else. As Mephisto prepares to take Johnny to Hell, Roxanne enters and banishes the demon with the pure essence of her soul. She tells Johnny that she read his books behind his back, and learned how to send the devil away. The next night, however, Johnny begins to burn with fever, until his head suddenly transforms into a flaming skull. Every night since, he has undergone the transformation into... the Ghost Rider!

This issue is an interesting beast. On the surface this story has your standard first issue tropes to it.

Wow ... don't know what to say about this one. To be honest, I wasn't all to familiar with the Johnny Blaze Ghost Rider. I read a few of the books as a kid, but mostly I read the Danny Ketch comics in the 90's and of course there was the movie. So it was quite a shock to see that the book opens with Ghost Rider not only riding by a murder, and not seeming to care, but also running away from the guys who did it. They begin to chase him so they can stop him from identifying them. That is right. Th...

In this reality Peter Parker's Uncle Ben never died, and helped Peter to train as a hero with his new spider powers, becoming the Amazing Spider, a famous and popular super hero who also became a rich and successful scientist, having his own company called " Parker Technologies ".

With his resources and with the motivation of Ben, the Amazing Spider used transportation technology to bring Spider-Men from other universes and absorb their powers to increase his. After bringing the Spider-Man of Earth-616 and making him believe he arrived to this universe by accident, the Amazing Spider was weakened by the feedback of the dimensional portal.

Peter Parker (Earth-11638) from Amazing Spider-Man Annual Vol 1 38 002

As the Amazing Spider

Spider-Man brought him to his lair, the Web, under his mansion, and supplanted him while he recovered from his condition, realizing that this universe was a "perfect" version of his. After visiting Parker Technologies, Peter realized the Amazing Spider already knew about him and that the Ben Parker of this universe was alive, and decided to visit him, who knew his story because he was an ally of the Amazing Spider, both talked about the differences of this reality and their lives until Ben gave Peter a tea with a sedative.

Peter woke up in the Web, where he was attached to a machine which would absorb his powers and give them to an already recovered Amazing Spider. The Amazing Spider revealed that he and Ben brought different Peter Parkers from other realities in order to grow in power to defend his universe; when Spider-Man questioned him, both started fighting, and finally the Spider was convinced that what he did was not heroic.

When Ben was about to plug a distracted Spider-Man into the machine, the Spider stood in the middle and had his powers absorbed by the machine, apparently killing him. [1] It was revealed that he was put in a coma, but his spirit was trapped in Hell where he felt he deserved his punishment. [2]

He supposedly got his powers in the same way as Spider-Man of Earth-616 , but in order to become the strongest hero he also built a machine to capture his alternate reality variants and absorb their life-force into himself. He killed countless Parkers this way and in result became so strong that he managed to defeat Thanos and even Galactus . He however, became addicted to the process of life-draining, and could not stop. [1]

The full range of the powers he had is unknown, he demonstrated the following:

JOHN "JOHNNY" BLAZE GHOST RIDER

While traveling cross-country with his girlfriend Roxanne, Johnny Blaze came across a group of bikers that seemed friendly enough, buying the couple beers all night long. After closing, Blaze found out their hospitality came with a price. He was murdered, the blood drained from his body as an offering to Satan. The bikers went on to become some of the richest and most powerful men in America, and one even went on to become the Vice-President – Bobby Blackthorne.

Satan offered Blaze a chance for revenge, and Blaze sold his soul to make sure Roxanne's life would be spared. Nearly twenty years later Blaze has returned to claim the lives of the bikers who killed him all those years ago and send their souls to Hell. Once Blackthorne got wind of this, he ordered Nick Fury to kill Ghost Rider. Fury assembled a team of operatives, including the Punisher and the first Hulk, but it would take more than fancy weaponry and brute strength to take Ghost Rider down.

As each biker was killed, Blackthorne feared for his life and made another bargain with Satan. Blackthorne was transformed into a second Ghost Rider, but that didn't deter Blaze. The two Ghost Riders fought until they changed back to their human forms, and Blackthorne got the upper hand. Blaze was beaten and about to be killed a second time, but the Punisher assassinated Blackthorne. Punisher told Blaze he was on the hit list too, but Blaze was confident Punisher wouldn't kill a man who was avenging two deaths. Blaze was right and Punisher let him leave without incident.

Satan was true to his word, and Roxanne is living a normal life with her husband and children, and as long as Blaze continues to deliver souls to him he'll have no cause to cancel the deal.

Cosmic Ghost Rider's Tragic Origin Is Straight Out of a Horror Movie

Thanos #16 reveals how Frank Castle went from being the Punisher to a Ghost Rider and herald of Galactus.

SPOILER WARNING:  This article contains major spoilers for Thanos #16 by Donny Cates, Geoff Shaw, Antonio Fabela and Clayton Cowles, on sale now.

It can be tough for newer characters to gain a following in the world of superhero comics, but that wasn't the case with Marvel Comics' Cosmic Ghost Rider. Introduced in Thanos  #13, the Spirit of Galactic Vengeance immediately became a fan-favorite character, with much of his buzz the result of his chaotic attitude and mystery identity.

While we had our own theories on the Cosmic Ghost Rider's identity , he was finally revealed to be the former Punisher, Frank Castle . So, how did Frank go from being a gun-toting vigilante to the right hand of King Thanos? The answer to that question spans eons, and has all the makings of a science-fiction horror movie.

Three Deals With Three Devils

Seeing as Thanos is the star of this comic, it's not surprising to find Frank Castle's saga begins with the Mad Titan. Unfortunately for Earth's heroes, Thanos finally succeeds in defeating them, the Punisher included.

In Frank's final moments, he let out one final wish for the opportunity at vengeance upon Thanos into the universe. And with that, the first of our devils -- Mephisto -- answered the call, turning Frank Castle into the Ghost Rider.

The only problem with being a Spirit of Vengeance is you need victims to avenge, and there weren't many left after Thanos' reign of destruction. This left the Ghost Rider to lose his mind as he roamed the Earth, until Galactus paid a visit. He, too, was a victim of Thanos, and came searching for help from those who once got the best of the Devourer of Worlds. With those heroes all gone, the Ghost Rider was the only person left to offer his services.

The second deal was that Galactus make Frank his new herald, with the caveat that only once Thanos is defeated can Galactus eat Earth. And that is how the Ghost Rider became a Cosmic Ghost Rider.

However, Frank's sad, tragic tale doesn't end there. Together with Galactus, they mounted an attack against Thanos -- a fight which culminated in the Devourer's beheading.

After his endless string of conquests, the Cosmic Ghost Rider presented Thanos with the one person he couldn't kill, something that intrigued the Mad Titan. Seeing as how Frank also couldn't defeat Thanos, that left the two at a stalemate, allowing Thanos to make an offer Frank couldn't resist: Join him, and bear witness to more evils than he could ever punish. Frank's third, and final, deal with a devil was made, turning him into the Black Right Hand of King Thanos.

It's actually quite sad and not a little bit surprising to see the downfall of Frank Castle unfold in this manner. It's not a stretch to see him become one of the many hosts for the Ghost Rider, but getting involved with an interstellar being like Galactus should be out of his comfort zone. Then again, once you start making deals with Mephisto, all bets are off.

For fans eager to learn even more about Frank Castle's new alter ego, they have a Cosmic Ghost Rider miniseries  this summer to look forward to. Hopefully, it will fill in the gaps on what Frank was up to during his time as a Ghost Rider and herald to Galactus. Of course, we also have to see what becomes of the Cosmic Ghost Rider as he teams with both Thanos' against the future God of Thunder in  Thanos #17, which goes on sale March 21.

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.
