TNTM: Ghost Rider Rides Again

People have been fascinated with the character of Ghost Rider ever since his first appearance in Marvel Spotlight On #5.  

Who could blame them?  He has a cool flaming skull head, rides a kick-ass motorcycle, and has an awesome studded leather jacket.  Marvel tried to push him into the limelight with two self titled movies, but the character didn’t seem to catch on.  They are giving Ghost Rider another big push with a Hulu series Marvel’s Ghost Rider and his own comic book, Ghost Rider.

Both of these will be written so you can pick them up with no prior knowledge of the character or mythology surrounding him, but it’s always better to know so here we go.

Ghost Rider is the name given to many people throughout history.  These people embody the Spirit of Vengeance (except Robbie Reyes, I’ll get to that later).  The Spirit of Vengeance works for Mephisto and it’s sole purpose is to exact vengeance upon the guilty.

As I mentioned, there have been Ghost Riders all the way back to prehistoric time (Avengers of 1,000,000 BC story-line).  There are far too many to cover them all in one article.  I will delve into the ones associated with the comic book (Johnny Blaze and Danny Ketch) and the Hulu series (Robbie Reyes).

Johnny’s path to becoming Ghost Rider started when he learned his surrogate father was stricken with life-threatening cancer.  Blaze turned to the occult to save him. His studies led him to a spell which supposedly could summon Satan himself.  Johnny was unaware that he had, in fact, summoned Mephisto. Desperate to save his father, he sold his soul to Mephisto in return for the cancer to be cured.  Mephisto came to claim his prize, but was unable to when Johnny’s girlfriend proclaimed her love for him, which drove Mephisto away with the purity of her emotion.

Mephisto is not one to give up easily.  He bonded Blaze him with the demon Zarathos as an act of revenge for not being able to obtain his soul. This transformed him into a Ghost Rider.  While Johnny still had his soul, he was forced to punish the wicked and evil upon Mephisto’s demands.  Blaze was not completely lost in the transformation however, and would also help the innocent when they were in danger.

Danny Ketch gained Ghost Rider status as a result of fleeing from gangsters who attacked him and his sister.  He hid in a junkyard where he found a motorcycle with a glowing gas cap.  When he touched the gas cap he was transformed into the Ghost Rider. This Ghost Rider was nearly identical to the previous, although his costume was now a black leather biker jacket with spiked shoulder-pads, grey leather pants, and a mystic chain he wore across his chest, which responded to his mental commands and served as his primary melee weapon. His new motorcycle resembled a futuristic machine and the front of it could lower to serve as a battering ram.

To make things a little weirder, we learn that Johnny and Danny are actually brothers.  This comes into play in the upcoming Ghost Rider comic book as Johnny takes over Hell and Danny ends up working under him as Ghost Rider on Earth.  You can imagine there is just a bit of sibling rivalry taking place.  The comic book is due to hit the shelves sometime in October.

There is a new Hulu series set to air in 2020 called Marvel’s Ghost Rider.  This series centers on the newest Ghost Rider, Robbie Reyes.  This is a spin-off from the Marvel’s SHIELD TV series (This show has been cancelled).  As I mentioned above, Robbie Reyes is NOT a Spirit of Vengeance.

Robbie “borrows” a 1969 Dodge Charger that is possessed by the spirit of his evil satanic serial killer uncle, Eli Morrow.  Robbie and Eli fight for dominance over Robbie’s body. Robbie agrees to permanently bond with Eli and sate Eli’s thirst for murder, but only by killing people with evil souls.

Robbie has exhibited some of the same powers as other Ghost Riders such as the penance stare and ability to bond with his vehicle.  The big difference is Robbie is sharing his body with a serial killer entity rather than a demon out to exact revenge.

There are a ton more people who have carried the mantle of Ghost Rider.  These three are just the ones that will be showcased by Marvel in the near future.  If you are looking to get more steeped in Ghost Rider lore, I suggest any of the stories written by Warren Ellis, Garth Ennis, or more recently Jason Aaron.  Ghost Rider is a really cool character with a lot of evil vs good dichotomies.  I can’t wait to see him get his moment in the spotlight.

Video: TNTM – Unboxing SideShow Collectibles X-23 Premium Format statue

If you watched the 2017 Logan movie based on the Marvel Comics Wolverine character, you were introduced to a young Laura Kinney. She is one of the Weapon X test subjects named X-23.

The Weapon X program wanted to clone Logan, but all attempts were unsuccessful due to a damaged Y chromosome. The decision is made to replicate the X chromosome and produce a female clone. There were 22 failures at producing a viable sample to combine with an embryo. The 23rd time was a success.

Laura was raised in captivity and groomed to be a ruthless and skilled killing machine. She has a heightened healing factor like Wolverine, but she only has two retractable claws in her hands. She does however, have a retractable toe spike in each foot.

Her claws and toe spikes have been coated with adamantium, but she escaped before they were able to fuse the metal to her skeleton.

Laura/X-23 is highly trained in the use of long range weapons and explosives. She is a formidable hand-to-hand combatant with intensive training in numerous armed and unarmed martial arts techniques. Laura is also highly educated and so far has displayed fluency in French and Japanese. Her intellect has been described as being “off the charts”.

The X-23 Premium Format Figure stands 25” tall, as Laura Kinney leaps into the fray on top of a severed Sentinel hand base while a mechanical arm reaches up to grab her. With a quick SNIKT, she’s ready to tear up her enemies with dual metal knuckle claws and her signature toe claw exposed.

The polyresin X-23 Premium Format Figure wears a sculpted costume with yellow and dark blue paneling detailed to mimic realistic fabric-like textures. Her costume also features matching gloves, a black belt with a red and gold “X” buckle, and boots detailed with “X” treads.

TNTM: Captain Marvel #8 introduces new superhero

Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers) has had a rough go of it lately.  She was trapped in an alternate realm with a few other heroines. She managed to break free, but that joy was cut short when the press outed her as a half Kree warrior.

In the new “Falling Star” story-line a new superhero steps in to help Captain Marvel in the midst of a big battle with some alien bad guys.  This new super powered goodie introduces herself as, Star and she looks very familiar.

She holds a strong resemblance to a younger version of Carol Danvers.  That of course is by design.

Captain Marvel artist Carmen Nunez Carnero had the following to say about the familiar look of this new superhero.  “The idea for Star was that she should be like a younger version of Captain Marvel. Somebody for the public to empathize with and see as a new, better Super Hero. Regarding the look, we worked on it a lot—especially the colors that should be elemental to her design. Since her name is ‘Star,’ of course that element should be prominent on her uniform, but it shouldn’t look similar to Captain Marvel or Captain America. After many tests, we finally decided on a classic look—soft lines, bright colors, facemask to preserve her anonymity. The motif that I like most on the suit is how I could integrate the star as part of it, giving shape to her shoulders. “I hope this character becomes a staple of the Marvel Universe, because Star has a lot of potential, and she’s going to give us really unique scenes with Carol.”

star

Writer Kelly Thompson said: “Star is this mysterious new hero that’s showing up in New York in our ‘Falling Star’ arc. She’s sort of ascending as Carol is suddenly struggling and ‘descending,’ and it creates a lot of weird parallels and insecurities for Carol.  Normally this kind of thing wouldn’t phase Carol at all but in CAPTAIN MARVEL #8, she finds herself quite suddenly in a very low place, so seeing someone, a young blonde someone that sort of reminds her of herself, being perceived as her replacement is hard to take in stride. It feels like one more hit when you don’t have many hits left to give. I expect and hope for Star to be around the Marvel Universe for a long time. I don’t want to say too much or give too much away for the upcoming story, but she’s got a ton of potential just waiting to be explored.”

Captain Marvel #8 has sold out and is slated to go into second printing.  It sounds like they plan to do more development on this character.  She might even stick around for a while.  Who knows, we may just see her get her own title.  If you haven’t snagged your copy yet, run to your local comic shop before they are all gone.

Official Description

CAPTAIN MARVEL #8
(W) Kelly Thompson (A) Carmen Nunez Carnero (CA) Amanda Conner
CAPTAIN MARVEL: FALLING STAR! From the moment she returned to full-time Avengers duty in New York City, Captain Marvel’s life has been nonstop…and slightly weird. But she’s about to take on a brand-new threat – and a very old one! When her Kree heritage is exposed to the world in dramatic fashion, Carol goes from most beloved hero to public enemy number one overnight – and it’s pushing her to the darkest edge. Can she save the day even while the world turns on her? Does she want to?

Video: TNTM – Marvel Comics debuts Superhero team inspired by AXE Body Spray

I wish I were making this up.  AXE Body Spray has teamed up (by that I mean paid lots of money) with Marvel to create an all new superhero team.

All we know so far is the team is made up of five freshmen from the Future Minds School of Science and Technology based in Chicago.  These five students; Damien Garcia, Lyssa Jordan, Danny Li, Emily Everheart, and Tarell Taylor, use their skills and know-how… along with some high tech Wakandan technology, to become the superheroes; Burner, Windchill, Kid Vanish, Override, and Double Time.

If that isn’t enough for ya, the name of their team is…”The Fresh-men”.

According to the trailer, it appears they will be assisted in their crime fighting by the Avengers. There is no mention as to what media the Fresh-men will be published in, but the promotion is tied to the Marvel Unlimited subscription service that gives members unlimited access to over 25,000 issues of Marvel’s classic and newer titles, delivered digitally through your desktop web browser and the Marvel Unlimited mobile app.

Vlog+Story: TNTM on House of X, Powers of X preview

I posted yesterday about the upcoming X-men story-line that is supposed to bring the mutants back into prominence in the comics.  Jonathan Hickman draws upon the old X-men stories to bring us House of X and Powers of X (pronounced ten).

Yes, I know it is strange to say one as “X” and the other as “ten”, but Hickman has promised the reasoning will become apparent when the story unfolds.

I am kinda anxious for this story as they are promising we will see lots of the old mutants as main characters or at least in cameos.  There are some really interesting X-men we haven’t seen for a while.  Kinda makes you wonder if some of the characters that are presumed dead will be returning.  I only hope this X-men series delivers on all the hype they are building for the story-line.

The video below explains a little bit about what they are planning to do with our Merry Band of Mutants.

Press Release

Marvel Comics is proud to present House of X and Powers of X! These two intertwining series form an all-new redefining event for the X-Men. In this all-new trailer, learn about these earth-shaking issues from Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski, Senior Editor Jordan D. White, and writer Jonathan Hickman!

“House of X and Powers of X are two stories that act as one story. They absolutely are separate, but by the end they collide together and coming out of that is the new paradigm for the X-Men universe,” explains Hickman.

In this epic story starring almost every single mutant in the Marvel Universe, Jonathan Hickman takes the reins of the X-Men and will revolutionize everything you know about mutants. Shocking secrets will be revealed throughout Marvel history that will affect every member of mutantkind, especially the X-Men. Follow this incredible story and witness the most important scene in X-Men history!

“If you have been a fan of X-Men in any era, there is something in here for you,” promises White.

House of X #1 arrives on July 24th and Powers of X #1 arrives on July 31st in comic shops, on the Marvel Comics App, and on Marvel.com!
