TNTM: New Ghost Rider joins Spirit of Vengeance

Doctor Strange is putting together a team of the world’s most powerful magic users from throughout all time.  He needs their help to battle a new and extremely powerful villain called the Forgotten.

One of the mystical group he is recruiting is Kushala, aka the Demon Rider.  She had her debut in “Doctor Strange and the Sorcerer Supremes” #1.

Kushala is more than just a hero from the 1880s Marvel Universe. She is also the Native American incarnation of the Ghost Rider.

“She is a new character of Apache descent,” said series artist Javier Rodriguez.  “My inspiration comes from the tribes of New Mexico. They have a dance that is very powerful on every visual level. That ‘Devil Dance’ aesthetic and the geometric symbols mix perfectly with Kushala’s flaming skull and horse.”

“She is the Ghost Rider of the 1880s,” editor Nick Lowe expands. “She is a Native American woman and she gets really terrifying in Doctor Strange and the Sorcerers Supreme when she turns into her Ghost Rider, so we wanted to make sure she had her own unique name as well, so Demon Rider is what we ended up coming up with for that.”
World War Hulk

Kushala is interesting to me for several reasons.  She is an Apache, a sorcerer, a warrior, and a demon from the 19th century. The Spirit of Vengeance is a very Kushala
powerful character.

The only thing keeping it from doling out justice to wrong-doers left and right 24 hours a day is the human host.  The human part of the psyche keeps the unbridled vengeance from becoming an unstoppable force.

You saw this in the World War Hulk story-line the Johnny Blaze part of Ghost Rider forces it to travel to NYC to stop the Hulk from destroying all the super-heroes.  Doctor Strange tells Reed Richards that Ghost Rider’s power is boundless and he is almost godlike.

I also like Kushala because her origin is not from some large metropolitan city on either the East or West Coast.  Far too many of Marvel’s characters hail from the big cities.

It seems as though you can’t walk around the big cities in Marvel without bumping into either a super-hero or super-villain.  A little hint for all you super-villains, if you want to avoid being caught just commit all your crimes in rural America.  Your odds of success go up astronomically.

TNTM Ghost Rider on Agents of SHIELD season 4

People have been wanting Agents of SHIELD to get a little darker and edgier.  They have also been asking for recognizable Marvel characters to make appearances on the TV show.  Those people are getting what they asked for.

Agents of SHIELD will be moving to a later time slot and they will be bringing fan favorite, Ghost Rider, onto the series.

This isn’t the Ghost Rider possessed by the Spirit of Vengeance that pops into your mind right away.  You won’t be getting Johnny Blaze or Danny Ketch tooling around on their flaming motorcycles meting out justice.  This will be the All New Ghost Rider.

This Ghost Rider is a mechanic named Robbie Reyes.  The Spirit of Vengeance does not possess Robbie.  The ghost of his evil serial killer uncle, Eli Morrow, bonds with him.  Eli’s ghost bonded to his car, an awesome Dodge Charger, at death.  An unfortunate string of events caused the ghost to bond with Robbie.  The ghost gives Robbie powers similar to those of the original Ghost Rider.

Why use Robbie Reyes

The Johnny Blaze and Danny Ketch characters have already been defined by years of comic book stories.  Robbie Reyes is a relatively new version of Ghost Rider.  The writers can do a lot to mold this character and further develop him.  If there is one thing fanboys hate, it’s when writers change fundamental aspects of a character or do anything else to “retcon”.

Agents of SHIELD has had some bright spots throughout their first three seasons.  Slow, plodding story-lines have followed those bright spots.  Every time I am ready to write the series off and delete it from my DVR they pull another rabbit out of their hat.  I hope they do Ghost Rider justice (no pun intended) and develop him into a formidable and likable character.
