Biography [ ]

Early life [ ], family struggles [ ].

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

Origins of Ghost Rider [ ]

The Good Samaritan 1

Reyes is caught stealing the Hell Charger

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


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.


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 [ ]


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 [ ]


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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 [ ]


Reyes waits to meet his brother

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


Reyes spends his day with Gabe Reyes

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

Questioned by Quake [ ]


Reyes arrives at work and greets Canelo

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


Reyes searches for his seeming stalker

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


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.


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.


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.


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 [ ]


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.


Reyes discovers Daisy Johnson 's reason for guilt

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


Reyes chases down a team of scientists

When Johnson noted that they had stolen some kind of a weapon from the Pasadena Momentum Laboratory within Pasadena , Reyes taped up Johnson's mouth and running to the Hell Charger . Just as Reyes drove down the road, Johnson broke free and managed to leap onto the roof of the car as Reyes sped through Los Angeles . To shake her off, Reyes summoned the power of Ghost Rider, roaring as he did so, and caused flames to burst out of the car which forced Johnson to jump off while he continued to drive through the roads and towards the lab as fast as he could. [5]

Hunting Ghosts [ ]


Ghost Rider saves Leo Fitz from Frederick

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

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]


Reyes speaks to Daisy Johnson

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


Reyes and Daisy Johnson discuss Ghost Rider

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


Reyes saves his brother from street punks

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

Uprising 6

Reyes questions where Daisy Johnson is

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

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

Let Me Stand Next To Your Fire 7

Reyes is spotted by Alphonso Mackenzie

As Reyes pulled up to South Ridge Penitentiary to visit his uncle Eli Morrow , he spotted two S.H.I.E.L.D. agents who were just leaving, however Reyes locked eyes with Alphonso Mackenzie who then recognized him from their earlier encounter when Reyes had killed the ghostly Frederick at Momentum Labs . Reyes took off driving the Hell Charger when he and Mackenzie recognized each other, with the two S.H.I.E.L.D. agents giving chase as Reyes drove through the streets of Los Angeles in a desperate attempt to escape.


Reyes is knocked out after the car chase

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.


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]

Fighting Hellfire [ ]


Reyes is given new orders from Phil Coulson

Reyes was given a ride in a Quinjet as he returned to Zephyr One to find Phil Coulson and Alphonso Mackenzie getting their weapons ready. Reyes questioned if they were going after the book , noting that it had taken him a while to catch up with their plane, but they then explained that something else had come up. 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.


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.

Let Me Stand Next To Your Fire 23

Reyes drags Hellfire out of the wreckage

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


Reyes learns of Lucy Bauer and the Darkhold

With Johnson and Reyes in S.H.I.E.L.D. custody, Coulson convinces the two vigilantes to put their fight with the Watchdogs aside and focus on the greater threat - the Darkhold , an ancient grimoire that had been hunted by the Red Skull , Daniel Whitehall and even Nick Fury , and now Lucy Bauer was also currently searching for it. Fortunately for them, the person who could help them find it, Joseph Bauer , just came out of his coma before telling them that right now S.H.I.E.L.D. needed their help in order to finally stop Bauer's plans with the dangerous book. [3]

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


Reyes learns Phil Coulson is not using him

Reyes listened as Phil Coulson discussed the power of the Darkhold with Alphonso Mackenzie and Melinda May , with Coulson noting that they could not trust Jeffrey Mace with this information, but felt Reyes could be useful to their new investigation. Coulson suggested their next move would be to speak with Eli Morrow although Reyes insisted his uncle would not speak with S.H.I.E.L.D. , although Coulson explained he planned on bringing Marrow out of prison.


Reyes has a private talk with Daisy Johnson

Although Reyes insisted that he should join any mission involving his family, Coulson refused ordered him to stay on the plane. Furious about this, Reyes stormed off to an isolated part of Zephyr One where he found Daisy Johnson , who explained that if he was to leave he would be stuck in Utah . Reyes and Johnson argued about his methods before she revealed that she was trying to keep her distance from her former comrades out of fear of getting close to them, which she had been since Lincoln Campbell 's death, with Reyes noting he could see why.


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]

South Ridge Penitentiary Riot [ ]


Reyes and S.H.I.E.L.D. arrive at the prison

Once Leo Fitz had arrived on Zephyr One and provided the agents with the Ghost Infection Antidote , they loaded into the Containment Module which took them to the ground where split up into two teams, Daisy Johnson and two S.H.I.E.L.D. agents went to find Phil Coulson while Mackenzie and Reyes searched for Eli Morrow , who they assumed the ghosts were targeting, noting that the guards would likely be infected.


Reyes encounters Santino Noguera in jail

Once inside, Reyes struggled to contain Ghost Rider upon seeing so many criminals and murderers in their cell. When Reyes then recognized Santino Noguera as a member of the Fifth Street Locos , stepping over to Noguera, Reyes almost lost control upon seeing a member of the gang that had once almost killed himself and his brother . Mackenzie pulled him away and promised Reyes that he'll put him down if he loses control of his powers, but Reyes assured him he would not be using his power and he needed to keep his secret hidden from his uncle.

RobbIe Reyes-Lockup

Reyes kills Vincent with a chain

As they stepped into the boiler room, Mackenzie and Reyes were both cornered by the two ghosts following Bauer, with Mackenzie then shooting Vincent with his Shotgun-Axe with no effect. Reyes armed himself with a chain and ripped Vincent in half, dropping it as it now burned red hot. However, Hugo then appeared and infected Mackenzie with the psychosis by walking through him and smiling at the effect, only for Reyes to use his own powers to burn Hugo and destroy him. Mackenzie gave himself the antidote as he saw Reyes' face distort into a terrifying demonic shape.


Reyes frees Eli Morrow from his prison cell

As the situation within the prison deteriorated into a riot , Reyes and Mackenzie found Morrow and explained that they were breaking him out of prison. Mackenzie used the Pick-Lock Device to break open his door and they made their way out, despite Morrow being unhappy at S.H.I.E.L.D. 's involvement under it was explained that Bauer had gained powers and was in possession of the Darkhold . With the situation getting worse, Mackenzie ordered Reyes and Morrow to go on without him so he could help some trapped members of the prison staff. [2]

Murder of Santino Noguera [ ]


Reyes furiously confronts Santino Noguera

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

Ghost Rider in Prison 1

Ghost Rider murders Santino Noguera

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


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 [ ]


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.


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 [ ]


Reyes and Quake are found by 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.


Ghost Rider furiously breaking himself free

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.


Ghost Rider stops attacking Jeffrey 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.


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.


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 [ ]

Trapped between realms [ ].

Deals With Our Devils 1

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.

Deals With Our Devils 10

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.


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.


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.


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 [ ]


Reyes tries to communicate with Quake

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

Deals With Our Devils 11

Reyes confronts the Spirit of Vengeance

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


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.


Reyes manages to return to the Earth plane

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

Attack on Eli Morrow [ ]


Reyes speaks with agent Alphonso Mackenzie

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

The Big Guns

Yo-Yo Rodriguez , Robbie Reyes and Quake

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


Reyes searches around for Eli Morrow

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


Reyes attempts to turn into Ghost Rider

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


Reyes is impaled twice by Eli Morrow 's power

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

Self-Sacrifice [ ]


Reyes mocks all of Eli Morrow 's new powers

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


Reyes is checked on by Phil Coulson

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


Reyes transforms back into Ghost Rider

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


Ghost Rider finally burns Eli Morrow to death

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

The Return [ ]

Through the gateway [ ].

Ghost Rider returns

Ghost Rider returns from Hell

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

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

Attacking Aida [ ]


Ghost Rider attacking the Superior

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

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

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

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

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

World's End 29

Reyes confronting Aida

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

Reyes discussing the Framework

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

Return to Hell [ ]

Ghost Rider Returns Hell

Ghost Rider returns to Hell

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

Personality [ ]

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

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

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

Powers and Abilities [ ]

The Rider Takes Over

Reyes transforming into Ghost Rider


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

Ghost Rider creates a ball of fire


Ghost Rider burning Hugo down to ashes

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

HellCharger Attack Aida

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

Introducing Robbie Reyes: The All-New Ghost Rider Omnibus

The Ghost Rider has been one of the most prominent spooky antiheroes of mainstream comics since way back in 1972, and it’s hard to imagine a Marvel Universe without him creeping around its edges and popping in for the occasional crossover. Though Johnny Blaze was the original and Danny Ketch was his predecessor, there are countless other Ghost Riders that have never been explored at length.

When Marvel’s All-New line was in its planning stages, they approached writer and artist Felipe Smith to create a new Ghost Rider with the stipulations that he had to be young and he needed to drive a car rather than a motorcycle. Out of these sparse guidelines, Robbie Reyes was born. A Ghost Rider with a unique powerset and a troubled relationship with the spirit of a serial killer that he has been bonded with, Reyes brought a whole new edge to the Ghost Rider mythos in Ghost Rider: Robbie Reyes – The Complete Collection , while keeping the visual and thematic appeal of the character fully intact.

Meet the (All-New) Ghost Rider

Robbie Reyes is a young man trying to juggle the demands of high school with that of his under-the-table job as a mechanic. On top of this, he has to provide for his disabled younger brother Gabe, caring for him the way a parent would. When Robbie feels at his lowest after seeing his kid brother beaten up by bullies one day, he decides to “borrow” a car from the auto shop where he works to compete in a street race. Hoping to score big to pay for his brother’s care, Robbie ends up in a car chase with who he thinks are police, but turn out to be men working to retrieve mysterious bags of pink pills that were hidden in the car for none other than Dr. Zabo, perhaps best known as his alter ego Mr. Hyde. Robbie is killed, and the Ghost Rider rises up in his stead.

The arc that introduces us to Robbie Reyes (and his demonic serial killer counterpart Eli Morrow) is very violent, which causes some dissonance because it’s ostensibly aimed at a younger audience than some of the other horror-adjacent Marvel books. Gabe suffers multiple violent attacks and Robbie is shot to death. There are allusions to a young woman being roofied at a party and there’s casual bone snapping in fights. The tone changes as the series goes on, but there is some pretty visceral stuff in here.

The upside of some of the more hyperviolent moments of the book is that it shows us a very different Ghost Rider than any that we’ve known before. Unlike Blaze or Ketch, Reyes physically died to become the demon, and his connection with his Spirit of Vengeance is rocky and unpredictable—even by Ghost Rider standards. Eli tries to play with Robbie’s head by insisting that only extreme violent acts like setting the city aflame will cause real change, making him a perfect counterpart to the troubled Robbie. That’s how it is that with very little textual explanation of Robbie’s situation, we still get an excellent sense of who he is as a person. Though he distrusts others and turns his heart cold to suffering in order to focus on providing a better life for his brother, he is ultimately driven by the desire to step up and be a better person.

Ghost Rider, Meet Ghost Rider

One of the more entertaining parts of the second half of All-New Ghost Rider is, of course, the team-up with Johnny Blaze. Johnny kicks off the meeting with the standard superhero fight, but tells Robbie that he senses great evil in him. He does his research and is actually the one who reveals to Robbie that his demon, Eli, was a monster in his own life who has now learned how to inhabit the bodies of others.

Though Robbie and Johnny meet in a standard hero vs. hero brawl, they end up as friends, and they have an interesting dynamic. Johnny’s celebrity-driven early years and subsequent disillusionment with fame must seem like something out of a movie for Robbie, who lived a life of poverty and trying to make ends meet. Whereas Johnny made a deal with the devil out of his own misguided good intentions and naive worldview, Robbie’s bottom line was survival in a world that set him up to fail. Indeed, when Johnny asks him if he was sure he didn’t sell his soul to the devil, Robbie retorts that only an absolute fool would do something like that, to which Johnny has no response. Regardless of their comical personality clash, Johnny makes it very clear that he’s always around if Robbie needs him, noting, “You’re one of us.”

From beginning to end, though, All-New Ghost Rider is the story of Robbie’s relationship with Gabe. He forgets Gabe a couple of times due to Ghost Rider hijinks, and when Gabe witnesses Eli possess his brother and become violent, he immediately knows something is wrong. Gabe temporarily becomes a monster, but Robbie, helpless and confessing that he would never hurt Gabe on purpose and will always try to be a better brother to him, is able to talk him down.

Better Together

Here we pivot to Ghost Rider , a five-issue series that revolves around an unlikely team-up with All-New Wolverine, Honey Badger, Totally Awesome Hulk, and, of course, All-New Ghost Rider. This could have been an ongoing Champions series and I would have bought every issue because this cast is just plain fun and their chemistry as friends is through the roof. Amadeus Cho’s never-ending quips and monologues are the perfect match to Robbie’s brooding cynicism, while the sister team of All-New Wolverine provide violence, optimism, and down-to-earth pragmatism. The villain of the story is an out-of-control absorbing creature, and its general chaotic nature gives the heroes ample opportunity for truly delightful character growth. Smith’s at his best here as he gets to exercise his dialogue-writing skills in a way the All-New Ghost Rider format didn’t fully allow for. This is a hugely underrated book.

robbie reyes ghost rider ethnicity

This omnibus doesn’t collect all the Robbie Reyes stories (for instance, Ghost Racers and the online-only X-Mas Special are both absent), but it does collect Smith’s work on the character. As Reyes becomes more in control of the Ghost Rider, Smith seems to click with him better and better. Meanwhile, the incredible art teams helped accentuate the genuinely fresh feel of these stories. Tradd Moore’s sleek linework gave us some incredible car chase scenes while legendary Cassandra Cain-era Batgirl artist Daimon Scott adds his flair for hand-to-hand combat and cityscapes to his issues of the book. Felipe Smith’s covers for the Ghost Rider miniseries have an incredible sense of fluid motion while the interiors by Danilo S. Beyruth makes for a classic “meet the gang” style superhero story.

This book is truly incredible, and it injected a ton of life and energy into the Ghost Rider franchise when it was most desperately needed. Swapping out tried-and-true staples for a new approach was a prudent move, and these stories manage to perfectly capture everything that makes Ghost Rider fun while giving a highly charismatic protagonist in Robbie. The fight scenes become only more interesting with the car as we learn that Robbie can quite literally become one with it, and the stylish art sells even the most chaotic parts of the story. Even for long time Ghost Rider fans like me, this book was nothing short of a breath of fresh air, making Robbie Reyes easily one of Marvel’s most exciting new characters of the last decade.

Angry, impetuous, quiet, pragmatic, but above all else… an older brother. At the age of eighteen Robbie Reyes is the sole caretaker of his disabled little brother, Gabe . Balancing school, homework, a part-time job at Canelo’s Auto & Body, overall care of his little brother, and a infamous low-key street racing gig, Robbie’s day to day schedule is always hectic and unforgiving. It should come as no surprise that when a street race competition promises to lighten the stress of Robbie’s responsibilities in the form of fifty thousand dollars, to move Gabe to a better neighborhood, that Robbie would jump on the challenge.

As skilled a driver as Robbie Reyes is, he could not have foreseen the intervention of Dr. Zabo ’s hired paramilitary cartel. Hitting a dead end, Robbie gave himself up. With his hands on his head and knees to the ground, Robbie Reyes was mercilessly shot dead nine times before he hit the cement. The group confiscated seven duffle bags from the trunk of the “borrowed” Nineteen sixty-nine Dodge Charger carrying valued cargo in the form of Pink pills; a defective DNA manipulating capsule designed to dramatically increase the users strength, size, stamina, appetite, and aggression, created by Dr. Zabo.

Unbeknownst to anyone, the car is in fact haunted. Brought back to life by the Spirit of Eli Morrow , Robbie’s face catches fire, his flesh melts and Robbie Reyes is suddenly transformed into the Hellfire blazing, chain wielding, car riding, leather wearing, supernatural being… the ALL-NEW GHOST RIDER!

Robbie Reyes was co-created by Felipe Smith and Tradd Moore . He made his first appearance in All-New Ghost Rider #1 , May 26, 2014. According to quotes by Tradd Moore, Robbie's Ghost Rider appearance was intended to evoke a "sleek, techno vibe while also being grim and intimidating" the idea apparently sparked some interesting rhetorical questions as Moore was quoted "In my head I was thinking like, 'What if Death joined Daft Punk? What if Satan became a Power Ranger? What if Speed Racer went to hell and came back a slasher villain? What would that look like?"

A talented young mechanic with a penchant for anything with an engine and electronic music, but above all else he loves his little brother Gabe . All Robbie Reyes wants in life is to protect his disabled little brother. Gabe is bullied by Robbie's classmates, Guero and his friends. When Robbie stands up for his little brother, he is held at gunpoint and beaten up for their trouble. Guero and friends even take Robbie's shoes and Gabe's wheelchair.

It comes as no surprise later that night Robbie Reyes would enter an illegal street race worth fifty thousand dollars in hopes of winning so he and Gabe could move to a new neighborhood. The 1969 Dodge Charger he borrows from his place of employment, Canelo's Auto & Body, however, has stolen contraband in its trunk; Pink pills created by the new cartel leader, Dr. Zabo . His paramilitary cartel hunt down an unassuming Robbie Reyes and shoot him dead nine times before he hits the cement in a hail of automatic gunfire and set the car on fire while collecting Zabo's defective Pink pills.

That car however... is haunted by a spirit named Eli Morrow . Morrow brings Robbie back to life, embedding himself in Robbie's psyche, giving Robbie the power to transform into the Hellfire blazing, chain wielding, car riding, leather wearing, supernatural being... the All-New Ghost Rider! Together they avenge his untimely death, and Robbie wakes up in his bedroom none the wiser; as if all was a nightmare. But when a local gang leader by the name of Grumpy who's managed to steal a large quantity of Zabo's defective pills tries to reclaim his Dodge, members of his gang attempt to shoot Robbie down again for trying to take the car out for a second joy-ride. Only this time is different, the All-New Ghost Rider emerges, gets rid of the thugs and Robbie demands answers from the Spirit.

Dr. Zabo and his growing Urban Alliance look all over Los Angeles to find the last of his defective Pink pills. Once they make a deal with a young man, Guero and his friends, to join their ranks and earn good money in exchange for information on the whereabouts of his pills... the results are catastrophic. An all-out war breaks out over Robbie's neighborhood between Grumpy's local gang and Zabo's cartel. After getting his little brother, Gabe to safety, a hesitant Robbie uses his new powers to fight off Zabo's men and save the neighborhood.

Later that night, still disguised as the supernatural racer, Robbie beats up Guero and his crew and takes back Gabe's wheelchair.

As it turns out, Morrow was not such a good guy when he was alive. It's discovered he was a former hit-man for the Russian Mob, not only that, but he was a serial killing Satanist! He's escaped eternal damnation through Satanic rituals to once again walk among the living and resume his killing spree. Robbie Reyes is his host of choice, and Robbie's been struggling to win back his body and mind ever since while trying to balance the responsibilities of his unforgiving day to day schedule.

Meanwhile, since their last defeat, Dr. Zabo has regrouped. Armed with a new and improved Blue pill possessing all the strengths of the Pink pills with none of the aggressive side-effects, Zabo is ready to make his move over the Eastern territory gangs of Los Angeles. He assembles his Blue Hyde Brigade ; a force of unified crime made up of young, impressionable teens gangsters, hulked out on his new Blue pill, but loyal and obedient to a fault; a group whom Guero and his friends eagerly become members of. With his new army, Zabo gains the full cooperation of every syndicate in L.A. aside from the Russian Mob, a fact he is not pleased with. Dr. Zabo concocts a plan, a deal, they take care of the All-New Ghost Rider and the Russian Mob joins his Urban Alliance. Frightened with his last ordeal with the All-New Ghost Rider, Russian Mob Boss Yegor Ivanov accepts, but has no idea Zabo has no intention of saving Ivanov's life.

Unbeknownst to Robbie, original Ghost Rider Johnny Blaze has ridden into town. Unsure if Robbie is friend or foe, the two clash. Later Johnny Blaze instructs Robbie how to take control of his Ghost Rider abilities, and Robbie manages to keep Morrow's spirit at bay, but not without a terrible cost. Robbie and Johnny fight back Zabo's Blue Hyde Brigade and Robbie is declared a part of the Ghost Rider family but... his little brother Gabe may never trust him again.

Great Power

A year has passed and Eli Morrow is fed up with Robbie’s struggle to fight the rage and unquenchable bloodlust that plagues their bond every day. Eli needs a new partner, someone docile, someone manipulatable, someone who will help him avenge his own death, someone like the now emotionally distant Gabe.

The blooming relationship between Robbie and fellow classmate Lisa , disgusts Eli and he makes one last attempt to infuriate him with deep seeded, startling revelations. Not only is this satanic serial killer Robbie’s uncle, but he implies he may have had something to do with his parents disappearances and pushes the fact he had a hand in Gabe’s learning disabilities that plague his little brother every day. Robbie is pushed over the edge, but still he manages to fight off Eli’s need to murder. Eli however, isn’t finished with Robbie.

Through disturbing means, Eli takes Gabe and manipulates him against Robbie. The Spirit of Eli Morrow will see his death avenged, and Yegor Ivanov dead by any means possible, even if he has to use Gabe to do it. Robbie knows Eli’s plan and attempts to stop Gabe from following through, but without the Spirit of Eli Morrow, he is weak. In the end, it’s Robbie and Gabe’s unquestionable love for one another that saves the day this time. Robbie avenges Eli’s death by taking the life of Yegor Ivanov to Hell and by doing so, eternally bonds the Spirit of Eli Morrow to his soul, forever. Robbie makes a deal; “Find me the worst scum on the planet. Find me those who torture, kill and rape. Find me the foulest, darkest degenerate souls to walk the Earth… people like you, Eli Morrow… and I will gladly destroy them. But I will kill no one else.” - All-New Ghost Rider #12 - Great Power Part 2

From which Eli Morrow simply replies, you’ve got yourself a deal.

Avengers Mountain

Robbie having nightmares

Robbie was "chosen" to be a part of the new Avengers. In true Avengers fashion, they were tricked into coming together to take on a Dark Celestial invasion that was started by Loki , for the purpose of bringing together a roster of Avengers. After pushing back the invasion, Celestials left the corpse of one of them, The Progenitor , to act as their new North Pole headquarters, Avengers Mountain .

Many of the issues they faced could be traced back to Mephisto and his machinations to stop the heroic legacy powers from existing. Among these include the Spirit of Vengeance, which he currently is. Mysteriously, Robbie was connecting to the mutliverse and witnessing Mephisto's killings of the first Spirits of Vengeance from other Earths. These "dreams" also included the deaths of other first legacy heroes.

This made Robbie an "Omni-Avenger" and was tracked down by a Deathlok looking into Mephisto's attack on the multiverse under orders from Avenger Prime. He forcibly recruited Robbie to travel the multiverse and build an army of superhumans to take on Mephisto.

The All-Rider

No Caption Provided

Robbie arrived on Earth-818 with Deathlok where they started searching for more Avengers on a supposedly hero-less Earth. While trying to save people, they were taken prisoner by The Black Skull (a variant of Red Skull bonded with a symbiote) and tortured by the Ghost Goblin ( a variant of Norman Osborn possessed by the Spirit of Vengeance). In this dire circumstance, Deathlok reveals to Robbie that he is the All-Rider, the Multiversal Spirit of Vengeance, capable of turning any vehicle into a hell-ride.

They are rescued by a variant of Tony Stark, one that had developed Ant-Man tech to aid in his archeology. He led his own version of the Avengers, who banded together to stop the Black Skull and any of the variants he had recruited to help him stay in power on this Earth. After freeing this Earth, Robbie and Deathlok needed to move on, and to stop any Earth's from looking like his, this variant of Tony Stark volunteered to join them, touring the multiverse to test and gather variants of The Avengers.

After assembling their Avengers army, Robbie faces off against the Mulitversal Masters of Evil, including Doom Supreme. His attempt to use the Penance Stare on the this sorcerer supreme nearly killed Robbie. It did, however, burn out his All-Rider power making him useless to his new army.

The God Quarry

Sorcerer Loki brought more and more Avengers to The God Quarry to defend the quarry from a Mephisto kaiju and an army of Doom variants. Robbie was eventually reunited with his old teammates. Brandy Selby, who had been turned into an elderly woman by her power, shared enough of her power to reignite Robbie's All-Rider power.

Fixing the charger in the dead cosmos

Mephisto's plan was to break through the barrier of the quarry and release the raw power leftover from the previous cosmos to destroy this one. To fill the hole, Robbie used his newly regenerated power to re-assemble a Doom variant that was a planet-like space station. He rode it into the hole, which was then pinned shut by a swarm of Mjolnirs delivered by the Goddesses of Thunder.

Unfortunately, this was a temporary solution. The hole needed to be welded shut from the other side. Robbie volunteered after making Captain America promise to take care of his brother Gabe. He rode his Hell Charger to the other side and welded the hole with his hellfire. Believed dead, the Avengers returned to their homeworld where they mourned his loss. However, Robbie was still in the dead previous cosmos trying to repairing his car so that he could return.

Unlike Johnny Blaze , Danny Ketch , Alejandra , and many more in world history, Robbie Reyes is not actually a Ghost Rider . Robbie Reyes is not inhabited by a Spirit of Vengeance, but rather the Satanic human Spirit of Eli Morrow. Thus he suffers from a darker need; the need to extinguish life. Robbie has still found a way to do good and fight alongside Johnny Blaze who's dubbed him part of the Ghost Rider family, making Robbie an "honorary" Ghost Rider, or an All-New Ghost Rider. Thus, Robbie has developed some powers similar to a Ghost Rider and some very different ones as well.

Spirit of Eli Morrow

A Hit-Man for the Russian Mob, a sadistic serial killer, a devoted Satanist... and Robbie's uncle. Eli W. Morrow escaped eternal damnation through Satanic rituals to once again walk among the living and resume his killing spree. Embedded in Robbie’s psyche, Eli feeds off his anger and despair, and in exchange gives Robbie the great power to change into the All-New Ghost Rider ( All-New Ghost Rider #9 - Legend ); a Hellish monster similar to a Ghost Rider with supernatural strength, speed, durability, regeneration, unlimited stamina and spewing Hellfire generation. Robbie is not actually a Ghost Rider, dubbed as an "honorary" Ghost Rider, he possesses unique powers and anomolies found in his bond unlike previous Riders. The ornate facial scarring, the discoloration in Robbie’s right eye, all of which respond directly to his emotional state. If Robbie, however, gives in to his despair, and lets his negative feelings dominate, Eli Morrow can take over completely. A change displayed in pale skin and a fiery glow in both eyes ( All-New Ghost Rider #8 ). Because Robbie is the first Rider of his kind, it is unknown how his powers will evolve, but Eli claims they get stronger everyday ( All-New Ghost Rider #4 - Engines of Vengeance ). Together their powers could be limitless.

Through the process of bringing a freshly dead, compatible spirit back to life, the Spirit of Eli Morrow could inhabit and empower unassuming hosts at will. Now however, that Robbie Reyes has avenged Eli Morrow's death, their souls are eternally bonded. Eli can no longer jump from host to host and Robbie can never be rid of Eli Morrow's presence ( All-New Ghost Rider #12 ).

Intermediate Transformation

Unlike a traditional Ghost Rider, Robbie Reyes doesn't need to completely transform to use a fraction of the All-New Ghost Rider's abilities. Eli Morrow can give Robbie access to limited strength, speed, and durability. When this transformation occurs Robbie's ornate facial scarring will illuminate and he may or may not exhibit Hellfire breath or steam ( All-New Ghost Rider #7 ).

A supernatural and very versatile flame mostly associated with the Ghost Rider. This flame is known to burn the soul of its victims, but has been used to melt away the physical, and even heal the body of its host. Robbie Reyes particularly doesn't appear to use Hellfire intentionally, but rather primally; the more Robbie gives into his rage, the more collateral damage his Hellfire seems to cause, to the point of spontaneous ignition to the motor vehicles in his nearby vicinity during an explosive transformation into the All-New Ghost Rider.

A mystical weapon, the chain follows the innate intentions of the Rider whom wields it. Virtually indestructible, infinite in length, and capable of chainsawing it’s ensnared victims to pieces, the chain of the All-New Ghost Rider is a deadly weapon not to be underestimated. The ends of the chain vary between hooked flails, knives, crowbars, or ball-ping hammers.

Shadow-Shifting/Teleportation/Hellfire Portals

Unlike previous Riders, Robbie’s Rider can manipulate his physical being from one shadow to another shadow. There doesn’t appear to be a limit to where Robbie can go other than he needs a shadow to get there. The Hell Charger is linked to his ability to port from one place to another; possibly acting as a hub ( All-New Ghost Rider #3 ). Exhibited with a spark of unexplainable electricity, Robbie can vanish and reappear short distances, effectively teleporting. It should be noted the charge for the teleportation does take a moment and he cannot instantaneously teleport from point A to B ( Ghost Racers #4 ). The Spirit of Eli Morrow can manifest Hellfire Portals out of thin air for long distance travels. It should be mentioned these portal due take time for Eli to create, and the transportation isn't instantaneous. Eli also doesn't always know where they're going, mostly opting to use Hellfire Portals as a way of escape and a means of creating distance ( Ghost Racers #2 ).

Eternal Damnation

Robbie's All-New Ghost Rider can summon the chains of Hell to condemn the foulest, darkest degenerate souls to walk the Earth, body and spirit to eternal suffering in the very pits of the netherworld ( All-New Ghost Rider #12 ).

When in close, the Spirit of Eli Morrow can consume the souls of his victims entirely. Their bodies wither away to nothing as the soul is forcefully pulled from their mouths and into the All-New Ghost Rider's agape jaws ( Ghost Racers #4 ).


No Caption Provided

When imbued with the mystical powers of the All-New Ghost Rider, Robbie’s black 1969 Dodge Charger is transformed into the HELL-CHARGER! Impervious to conventional munitions, capable of instantaneous self-repair, Hellfire generation, incredible ramming power, ghosting through matter, and supernatural camouflage to appear like alternative vehicles; the Hell-Charger is an unstoppable monster of a machine on any street. If that wasn’t enough, this haunted ride acts as a storage, housing any number of Hell-blazing weapons for the Rider’s usage and a central hub for Shadow-Shifting. Aside from the Hell-Charger, the Spirit of Eli Morrow has shown to be capable of possessing other modes of transportation, though unlike a traditional Ghost Rider's version of this ability, they don't take on a Hellfire imbued appearance but he can command their functionality all the same ( All-New Ghost Rider #12 - Great Power ). It stands to reason, the Spirit of Eli Morrow may be somehow intimately linked to the 1969 Dodge Charger he transforms into the Hell-Charger, but can still "borrow" other modes of transportation.

Penance Stare Reaction

It is important to note that the All-New Ghost Rider's reaction to a conventional Ghost Rider's Penance Stare is dependent on who is in control between Robbie Reyes or Eli Morrow. If the Satanic, Serial killing Spirit of Eli Morrow is in control, the Penance Stare has the ability to temporarily though painfully repel him into a kind of hibernation state within a tired Robbie ( All-New Ghost Rider #9 ). If Robbie Reyes is in control, the Penance Stare of Carter Slade has found Robbie to be pure of soul, though not without causing temporary fatigue ( Ghost Racers #4 ).

Other Media

Agents of s.h.i.e.l.d..

Gabriel Luna as Robbie

The MCU version of Robbie Reyes appears in Season 4 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. , portrayed by Gabriel Luna.

In a departure from the comics, this version of Robbie is slightly older, and dropped out of high school. His skull also appears less mechanical, making him resemble the past Ghost Riders like Johnny Blaze. The creators of the show have said this was intentional, as they wanted to combine different aspects of the various Ghost Riders from the comics. Like the comics, Robbie is still a mechanic and still works to support his brother Gabe.

In the Season 4 premier, Ghost Rider is introduced as a brutal and famous killer who stalks the streets of Los Angeles. Unbeknownst to Quake , who has resolved to track the Ghost Rider down, all of his victims are sinners (such as a corrupt detective and a teacher who was molesting his students) who the demon inside him felt deserved to die. Quake eventually tracks Robbie to the junkyard where he works, and he quickly grows suspicious, thinking that she is a villain who is there to kill him. A fight ensues, and he manages to overpower her after transforming into Ghost Rider. However, he lets her go after realizing she is not a sinner, apparently using his powers to sense her innate goodness.

Ghost Rider

Daisy later confronts Robbie at work, leading to him tying up and gagging her. He learns that she is investigating a power company that has ties to the Darkhold , and heads off in his car. He arrives at the company in time to rescue Leo Fitz from a supernatural entity, destroying the creature in the process. He later offers Daisy a ride and tells her that he may be connected to the entities that were unleashed by the Darkhold.

Robbie's origin is given later in the series, where it is revealed that one night, Robbie and Gabe were attacked by a group of local gang bangers. Robbie was fatally wounded, and with his last thoughts, he begged someone, anyone, to save Gabe. After dying, Robbie was visited by a mysterious voice, who asked him if he wanted to avenge his death and kill the men who'd hurt his brother. Robbie agreed, and was resurrected as the newest Ghost Rider.

He agrees to work with S.H.I.E.L.D. to find the Darkhold, which leads to the revelation that Robbie's beloved uncle Eli is the true mastermind behind everything that happened, and that the gang who killed Robbie were actually trying to kill him. During the final battle, Robbie stays behind to kill Eli, causing him to become trapped in another dimension.

Robbie manages to escape the dimension he was trapped in due to Aida's work with the Darkhold building herself a real body. He returns and the Ghost Rider is on a mission to destroy Aida and take the Darkhold back to where it came from. As soon as he escapes through the portal he gets his old car back and finds Aida, her robot bodyguards try to stop him but he destroys them with ease and proceeds towards Aida who uses her new powers to attack Robbie. Aida uses her electricity powers the same as Lincoln Campbell's on Robbie, it pushes him back before he transforms into the Ghost Rider and her powers have no effect on him, he jumps at her with a swing of his blazed chain but she teleports away before he can hit her making the rider angry.

He reunites with his friends at shield, Daisy and Coulson and tells them how he got out of where he was sent and that the demon in him hates Aida and that he can track her as the rider is drawn to dark matter. They realise that Aida is afraid of Robbie and he can hurt her so that she can't heal when they see her again after the attack on Talbot, where she teleports away at the sight of him.

The team lure Aida to the base where she thinks that she is safe due to Robbie's absence, she confronts Coulson, who then reveals himself to be the Ghost Rider as Robbie passed the spirit to him. She fights the Ghost Rider who ends up winning fairly easily and disintegrates her. After this the deal the rider made was that he would go back to Robbie once Aida was dead. With Robbie know in possession of the Darkhold he used his new abilities he learnt whilst away to create a portal using his chain and takes the Darkhold back to where it came from.

Ghost Rider: Robbie Reyes Was the Best All-New, All-Different Marvel Hero

The Robbie Reyes Ghost Rider is a rarity among legacy superheroes, striking a balance of success that even Miles Morales hasn't achieved.

Ghost Rider isn't just a singular character in the Marvel Universe. Instead, it's a horrifying mantle that's been associated with numerous individuals throughout history. One of these is Robbie Reyes, who came about in an era where many of Marvel's premier heroes were being replaced by successors. Unlike many of them, however, Reyes was actually well-received.

From his backstory to his relationship with his predecessors, Robbie Reyes had several narrative elements that other "mantle swap" heroes lacked. This allowed him to cleanly co-exist with the other Ghost Riders, which is an element of superhero legacy that's almost impossible to achieve. This also made him more successful than perhaps the biggest legacy character in the Marvel Universe.

The Origin of Marvel's All-New All-Different Ghost Rider

Created by Felipe Smith and Tradd Moore, the Robbie Reyes Ghost Rider debuted in the first issue of his eponymous 2014 comic series. This was during the "All-New, All-Different" era of Marvel Comics, in which many of Marvel's most iconic heroes shared the spotlight or were outright replaced by new characters. Like some of the Ghost Riders before him, Reyes suffered a cruel fate when he was thrust into the life of a Rider. Living in the gang-ridden area of East Los Angeles, he met his end when mercenaries shot him in a car he used to enter a race. This competition was meant to win him the money to move himself and his young disabled brother out of town, but the event ended up changing Robbie's life forever.

Instead of dying, Robbie was bonded with the ghost of Eli Morrow, who's revealed to have been Robbie's homicidal uncle. Empowered into a very different version of Ghost Rider, Robbie used his new car and powers to defeat those who tried to kill him and bring peace to his violent neighborhood. All the while, he wrestled with Morrow's bloodthirsty desires and developed new, uncontrollable abilities. This saw him go far beyond his local haunts, fighting alongside the Avengers and other Ghost Riders in pursuit of both justice and vengeance.

Robbie Reyes' Relationship With Other Ghost Riders

Unlike Johnny Blaze and Danny Ketch, Robbie Reyes doesn't ride a motorcycle in his paranormal form. Instead, he drives a sort of ghostly Lowrider, with even his design as Ghost Rider reflecting a car's fins. While his design is distinct from his predecessors, his head still resembles a sort of skeletal helmet. These aesthetics aren't the only differences, however, as the very nature of Robbie Reyes' empowerment is distinct from the two other most popular Riders.

As mentioned, Robbie Reyes is bonded with the ghost of his evil uncle. With Johnny Blaze and Danny Ketch, they were instead bonded to the demonic entity Zarathos , with Blaze notably making a deal with the devil himself before this happened. For these reasons, those two are driven by revenge, with Zarathos being the literal "Spirit of Vengeance." Although later stories sometimes had them in conflict, Blaze and Reyes are respected allies, with the older Ghost Rider teaching his colleague how to control his powers. This more benevolent relationship is part of why Robbie Reyes has had few detractors from even the most ardent fans of old-school Marvel.

Robbie Reyes is a Better Legacy Hero Than Miles Morales

Robbie Reyes achieved the almost impossible balancing act of being both an integral part of his resident mythology and independent of his predecessor. He's quite different from the other Ghost Riders, while still being firmly in the same "world" as them. This means that both Ghost Rider experts and newcomers can enjoy his stories. Likewise, his being far away from and largely unrelated to Ketch or Blaze means that they can act independently of him. Having extensive "families" of nearly identical superheroes can be a big problem in terms of narrative, especially if these heroes live in the same city. Thankfully, Reyes can spread his wheels far away from the other characters in the mythos. His coexisting with Blaze also marks a major difference between him and other legacy characters.

For instance, Miles Morales isn't the only Spider-Man to ever be a part of Marvel's alternate Ultimate Universe . He only came about after the death of his world's Peter Parker, and the same goes for the version of Miles Morales seen in the two animated Spider-Verse movies. Conversely, most of his villains are foes that Peter already fought beforehand, meaning that he's fairly dependent on the first Spider-Man in most of his incarnations. For this reason, it's hard to truly spin him off as his own hero, especially since even his hit movies are multiversal adventures involving several other Spider-People .

RELATED: Ghost Rider Learns a Harsh Lesson About Hell – And Why He Should Stay The Hell Out

On the opposite end of this spectrum is Kamala Khan, a.k.a. Ms. Marvel. Though she's the "sidekick" of the Carol Danvers Captain Marvel , the two aren't really related at all beyond Kamala being a fan of Carol. Her powers are much different, and they stem from her originally being written as a member of the Inhumans . This means that she's only nominally a "Marvel," and her real origins tie to her to one of the publisher's most contentious property ever. Given that she's had a lot of solo success in spite of Carol and the Inhumans, it's easily arguable that she'd be better served with no connection to either of them.

Thankfully, Robbie Reyes avoids both of these issues, and part of why he's "gotten over" so well with fans is his mostly amicable relationship with the other Ghost Riders . A major issue of the All-New, All-Different era was that too many characters' introductions felt almost derisive toward their predecessors, who just so happened to be heroes that fans had come to love for decades beforehand. When juxtaposed to the somewhat "flawless" portrayals that some of these newcomers were given, it didn't engender them to long-term success. So far, however, Robbie Reyes has been one of the more liked heroes from this time period, namely because he's steeped in classic Marvel Comics tragedy. He's both a good man in a bad situation and a just man wrestling with a monster inside, echoing what made heroes like Spider-Man and antiheroes like Hulk and Wolverine so successful. He may never come to truly replace Johnny Blaze or Danny Ketch, but with his own niche somewhat carved for him, that's absolutely fine.

'Agents of SHIELD' Robbie Reyes Ghost Rider analysis

Robbie Reyes Ghost Rider_Gabriel Luna Split - H 2016

When Agents of SHIELD decided to tackle fan-favorite Marvel character Ghost Rider in season four of the ABC drama, the show’s producers had a choice: go with Johnny Blaze, the most well-known iteration of Ghost Rider, or a lesser-known version.

Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb and executive producers Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen  decided to go with option B and cast  True Detective alum Gabriel Luna as the newest version of Ghost Rider, Robbie Reyes. Casual fanboys know all about the original Ghost Rider, Johnny Blaze, thanks to the two live-action Ghost Rider movies starring Nicolas Cage, and most of the comic books are about the stunt motorcyclist who sold his soul to who he thought was the devil. So why is Robbie Reyes coming to SHIELD  in the fall?

“Truthfully, Nicolas Cage turned us down,” Whedon jokes to The Hollywood Reporter. We moved on as fast as we could,” Whedon  told THR with a laugh before confessing Robbie’s  backstory  was too attractive to pass up.

“At the end of the day, SHIELD is really a show about family,” Loeb tells THR . “I know that it looks like a show about a bunch of spies that are running around on a big, giant plane that are saving the world every week, but it really is about a group of people who come together because they have no one else in their lives. When you watch the show from that point of view, you really understand that Coulson  (Clark Gregg) is a father figure, and these people around him are people he needs to look after and make sure they’re OK.”

Since Robbie was introduced into the Marvel canon in 2014, his story has focused on his family history as he lives with and takes care of his developmentally disabled brother Gabe and will do anything to keep both of them away from the gangs that run East Los Angeles.

“Robbie’s story, in its inception, is the story of an older brother who’s looking after his younger brother, and then how the world of the Ghost Rider changes that dynamic,” Loeb says. “That’s true of any Marvel hero. We begin in a place where it’s something we can all relate to, and then something extraordinary happens to them, not that they’ve ever asked for it. What we’ll find out along the way is Robbie’s journey now that he has the burden of being the Ghost Rider, what that does and more importantly how that affects our cast at SHIELD .”

'Agents of SHIELD's' Ghost Rider 101: Everything to Know About Robbie Reyes

To hear  Tancharoen tell it, the fact that there is so little source material on Robbie compared with Johnny was also a big factor in their choice.

“People are familiar with Johnny Blaze. Robbie Reyes is a new iteration of the character,” Tancharoen tells THR . “There’s not a lot of material on the character so it gives us a lot of room to have our take on it. And also, just the fact that he is a young kid who grew up on the streets of East L.A., we liked that backstory . We like seeing a character like that in the mix of our team.”

“Most people, when they think of Ghost Rider, just think of the flaming skull, so we can really pick and choose what we do,” Whedon adds. 

And because Robbie’s story includes the opportunity to add more diversity and inclusivity to their show, Whedon and Tancharoen promise that they will dive into Robbie’s family history and his dynamic with his brother “fairly early on.”

Agents of SHIELD returns for season four on Tuesday, Sept. 20, at its new time, 10 p.m., on ABC.

Publication history [ ]

Robbie Reyes first appeared in All-New Ghost Rider #1 (March 2014 ), created by writer Felipe Smith and artist Tradd Moore.

When Marvel Comics was getting retooled as All-New, All-Different Marvel , editor Mark Paniccia approached writer Felipe Smith on creating a newer and younger Ghost Rider. Among Paniccia's suggestions were that this new Ghost Rider drive a car instead of a motorcycle, an idea that excited Smith. [2] Another big difference between this Ghost Rider and its predecessors is that Reyes doesn't have a floating head, or a human skull, Smith says. "He's an amalgam of a flaming car and a human being. He's not wearing a helmet, and his head isn't a skull: this Ghost Rider is designed so his look simulates the lines of the classic muscle car he was racing the night he died." [3] Tradd Moore was brought in to sketch ideas based on Smith's concept.

He also, more recently, appears on Ghost Rider (2016), Marvel Legacy and Avengers (2018) #1. [4]

Fictional character biography [ ]

Four on the Floor Part Four-TV Variant

Felipe Smith ’s TV variant cover art to Ghost Rider (2017) #4.

Robbie Reyes is a high-school student working as a mechanic at an auto body shop who lives with his developmentally disabled brother Gabe and seeks to get away from the dangerous, gang-riddled streets of East Los Angeles . To that end, he enters a street race, hoping to use the prize money to move themselves away. He is gunned down by mercenaries trying to retrieve pills that caused the transformation of Calvin Zabo into the supervillain Mr. Hyde, which had been left in the trunk of the 1969 Dodge Charger he "borrowed" from the auto body shop for the race. He is revived as a demonic being with a flaming, helmet-like head. He drives off in the car, now similarly ablaze. [5]

Later, the spirit bound to the car introduces itself to Robbie as the ghost of a man named Eli Morrow , who says he had been killed by gang members. Eli offers to help Robbie clean up his neighborhood in exchange for Robbie helping him avenge his death. [6] Robbie becomes a local hero whose fame catches the attention of Johnny Blaze, who travels to Los Angeles to confront the new Rider. Eli is later revealed as Robbie's estranged uncle, a Satanic serial killer who kidnapped and murdered at least thirty-seven people in rituals before being fatally shot by police in 1999. A possessed Robbie later encounters Johnny Blaze, who uses the Penance Stare on Eli's spirit. [7]

Eli was also the one who pushed Robbie's mother down the stairs while she was pregnant with Gabe, causing Gabe's disabilities. [8]

In addition to confronting Mr. Hyde and his criminal underworld, Robbie and Eli fight for dominance over Robbie's body. Robbie eventually permanently bonds with Eli and agrees to sate Eli's thirst for murder, but only by killing people with evil souls. [9]

He appears in The Unbelievable Gwenpool along with Hawkeye , both working to stop a ceremony being held by dwarves using a mystical space rock. Gwenpool appeared in his trunk's portal via her friend Sarah "The Terrible Eye" and the police arrived, prompting them all to flee. He had claimed the gem with Gwen's ghost friend Cecil inside and left it in his car, where his possessing spirit was apparently attempting to turn Cecil on Gwen. When that fails he shrugs it off and decides to just go back to corrupting Robbie. [10]

Following a vivid nightmare involving an ancient gathering of heroes that include a previous Ghost Rider, Robbie awakens in South Africa with no memory of how he got there. He is attacked by Star Brand , who seeks to keep him from finding a buried Celestial . Robbie defeats Star Brand by using the Penance Stare, an ability he previously had no idea he possessed, but somehow accidentally kills Star Brand as well. [11] Robbie then joins a new team of Avengers formed by Thor, Iron Man, and Captain America to fight off the Celestial Final Host. Sometime later, word of Star Brand's death somehow reaches Odin . The long-time ally of the original pre-historic Star Brand thought that Robbie killed the current Star Brand purposely. Robbie explains to the All-Father of Norse Gods about his accidental murder of the latter Star Brand when his Penance Stare first awakened, thus easily winning forgiveness and making friends. [12]

Powers and abilities [ ]

Robbie differs from previous Ghost Riders, mainly because he is not possessed by a Spirit of Vengeance or any similar demonic entity. Rather, he is possessed by the spirit of Eli Morrow, a deceased serial killing Satanist who worked for the Russian mob as a hit-man. Despite this, he has abilities similar to his predecessors; he possesses superhuman strength, speed, agility, stamina, and durability potent enough to challenge Thor or Captain Marvel, [13] as well as the natural Rider's capability of conjuring natural and hellish flames. [14] He wields a supernaturally strong chain weapon, and can banish people to Hell or outright consume their souls. [15] [9] [16] Unlike previous Ghost Riders who rode on motorcycles, Robbie drives a 1969 Dodge Charger R/T which he refers to as the Hell Charger. The Hell Charger is linked to the Ghost Rider, allowing Robbie in his Ghost Rider form to instantly teleport to and/or merge with the car. It also acts as a warp hub which he can shadowmeld with in order to warp things (himself or others) over varying distances using shadows. [17] The Charger can also be driven remotely, and Robbie's Ghost Rider form can pass harmlessly through it, allowing it to drive into foes. The car's trunk , when opened, acts as a portal through Hell, allowing the Ghost Rider to transport anything, including people, to any location. [18] Robbie, through his Hellcharger, can create portals out of hellfire in order to take himself anywhere he can think of while Eli can change the shape and appearance of their ride. [19] [20] Eli is shown to able to take control of Robbie's body whenever he feels that he isn't up to the task or when Robbie gives into negative emotion, which is signified in his human form by a pallid skin tone and both of his eyes turning orange. [7] During his battle with Star Brand , Robbie discovers that he possesses the Penance Stare, which allows him to force anyone who makes eye contact with him to experience all of the pain and suffering they have ever inflicted on others. [21] His Ghost Rider form can also evolve into a stronger, more demonic form when Robbie is sufficiently angered, though this transformation is harder to control and more destructive. [22] Recently while battling corrupted Celestial's Robbie later realized he'd entrenched a simple tractor with his rider properties. Similarly to Daniel Ketch; Robbie's rider transformation changes everything within reach alongside him as well. [23] The vehicle can also contact the spirits of the deceased as it was able to enlist the aid of Tony's dead father Howard Stark to ask for information. [24]

Other versions [ ]

Secret wars [ ].

During the 2015 Secret Wars storyline, a variation of Robbie and his brother Gabe live south of Doomstadt on Battleworld . Robbie and several of his friends are arrested by the Thor Corps when patrol bots discover that Robbie possesses an "igniter spirit." He is taken to the Killiseum and forced to participate in Arcade 's Ghost Races. Dubbed "The Hell-Charger" to distinguish himself from other Ghost Riders, Robbie loses his first race, but makes a deal with his spirit Eli to win every race onward becoming popular with audiences. [25] Robbie later kills a monster that was created using his friends. Realizing the severity of his new life, Robbie escapes as Eli could not be controlled by Zadkiel . Robbie discovers that Gabe was kidnapped by Arcade and forced to race in the races. [26] Robbie returned to the Killiseum where he defeats Zadkiel and frees the other racers. Afterwards, Eli kills Arcade and the Ghost Riders decide to become the Spirits of Vengeance. [27]

Venomverse [ ]

During the 2017 Venomverse storyline, a symbiote version of Reyes appears, calling himself Host Rider . This version is now little more than a puppet being controlled by Morrow and the symbiote, who had united against him, and has been recruited into a resistance against a species that take over symbiotes and their hosts called Poisons. He is eventually assimilated by the Poisons, who is then killed by an alternate version of Carnage.

  • Robbie Reyes appears as a recurring character in the live-action Marvel Cinematic Universe series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. ' s fourth season , portrayed by Gabriel Luna . [28] While Robbie is driving with his brother Gabe, they are attacked by a street gang called Fifth Street Locos, who mistook Reyes for his uncle Eli Morrow. Gabe is paralyzed while Robbie's injuries are fatal. However, a "good samaritan", Johnny Blaze / Ghost Rider , rescues Gabe and revives Robbie by giving him the spirit of vengeance. [29] As Robbie only saw Johnny in his Ghost Rider form, he believes that he sold his soul to "The Devil" and goes on to hunt down members of the gang to exact revenge as well as other people he believes "deserve it". [30] He later comes into conflict with rogue S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Daisy Johnson , but eventually allies himself with her and S.H.I.E.L.D. to combat Lucy Bauer and her fellow ghosts after discovering he is capable of exorcising them. [31] Robbie later confronts his uncle over his crimes and drags him into another dimension.

[35] In later interviews, the actor stated he hopes Norman Reedus would portray Johnny Blaze in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. [36] On May 1, 2019, it was announced that a television series based on Robbie Reyes's incarnation of Ghost Rider would have premiered on Hulu in 2020, with Luna reprising his role. [37] On September 25th, 2019 however, Deadline reported that the series was no longer moving forward. Hulu cited this happened due to a "creative impasse", but will potentially shop it around. [38]

Spirits of Vengeance (Earth-616)

  • View history

The Spirits of Vengeance were a team of benevolent beings who protected mankind during ancient times. Their exact origins are a mystery, as some have claimed that they were the vestiges of " God 's power" bonded to human hosts and calling themselves Ghost Riders , while others have claimed them to be demons in the service of Mephisto . [3] There have been different sorts of Spirits of Vengeance around the world based on each region's customs, beliefs, and religions. Keeping them under control was the archangel Zadkiel , whose sole purpose was to keep the Spirits' purportedly true origin a secret. [1]

Stone Age [ ]

The earliest known occurrence of a Spirit of Vengeance indwelling a human occurred in 1,000,000 BC, when a young boy belonging to a mammoth-riding tribe of early humans bargained with Mephisto to obtain revenge against a Wendigo who had slaughtered his people. [4] [5] At some point afterwards, the Rider joined the Stone Age Avengers and defeated Zgreb the Sorrower , a corrupted Celestial. [6] When the First Host arrived, the Rider fought alongside his allies to repel them. [4] Following this, the Rider and his allies opposed Mephisto and other threats to the nascent humanity, such as time-travelling conquerors. [7]

Purported Origins [ ]

According to Sister Sara , following the Great Flood that wiped out almost the entire human population ended, God created a rainbow signifying his promise to humanity that he would never smite his wrath upon the face of the Earth . However, he continued to witness mankind committing countless misdeeds and ungodly actions, which eventually infuriated him. The Spirits of Vengeance, vestiges of God's power bonded to human hosts, were designed to fight off the thriving supernatural and satanic threats, as well as purify sin and wreak havoc on the guilty for their mistreatment towards the innocent and undeserving. Over the generations, the Spirits pursued their cause to purge the unrighteous.

The archangel Zadkiel was put in charge of monitoring the Spirits of Vengeance and keeping the truth of their origins a secret throughout the millennia; [1] with one purportedly false origin story being that they were an order of benevolent demons opposing by the devil Zarathos - who is often counted among them due to his similar powers and appearance; connected to the Ketch and Blaze bloodlines through the Medallion of Power . [8] Regardless of their origins, there have been dozens - if not hundreds - of Spirits of Vengeance throughout the centuries, many of them found in what became the United States of America. [1]

The Last Stand of the Spirits of Vengeance [ ]

During this event, most of the Spirits of Vengeance population disappeared due to the corrupted motive brought by Danny Ketch , which was given to him by Zadkiel, whose plan was to collect all of the Spirits' power to break down the walls of New Jerusalem and wage war on Heaven . [9] After the walls were felled, the Spirits rained down from the sky and were returned to their rightful hosts. and to others such as Vengeance . [10]

War of Damnation [ ]

When Mephisto brought Hell to Las Vegas via the Hotel Inferno , he bonded Doctor Strange , Falcon , Captain Marvel , Thor , Hawkeye , Black Panther , and Kaine to Spirits of Vengeance, turning them into Ghost Riders under his control. [11] [12]

After Johnny Blaze became the King of Hell , he recalled the Spirits of Vengeance possessing his allies and summoned every Ghost Rider that the Hell-Lord had ever created to take revenge. [13]

According to Sister Sara, the Caretaker , the Spirits of Vengeance were the divine wrath of God, while according to others they are demonic entities that serve Mephisto and others who sit upon the throne of his Hell . [3] Regardless of their muddled origins, their powers are "boundless" and "god-like" -- capable of doing incredible feats and competence as explained by Doctor Strange making them one of the strongest and most powerful supernatural entities to exist but are only limited due to the human host lack of imagination. The host itself acts as a "built-in safety lock" to prevent the Spirit from exacting its full potential. If the Spirit is controlling the Ghost Rider, the results would be biblically catastrophic and the human host can only influence the Spirit's decisions. If the host is in control, it would not be as powerful as the Spirit. Nevertheless, the Ghost Rider is still very powerful even in its weakest state. [14]

Vessel Possession: The Spirits do not require any human host to bond with. They're capable of enduring for themselves rather than needing a vessel to live. However, as immortal and benevolent weapons, they must possess a human host through various means in order to thwart any evil presence. The Spirits are considered to be ruthless against impurity and will torture the host for preventing it to fight off wickedness. This could cause several psychological and spiritual predicaments. If the act of prevention does occur, it will lead to either the Spirit having absolute control or losing the host's humanity succumbing to an incurable monstrous state. [ citation needed ]

  • Host Empowerment: Any human being possessed by a Spirit of Vengeance will be granted unimaginable capabilities. Some of its abilities are visibly demonstrated due to how the host utilizes its powers. But because of the lack of imagination and knowledge, the majority of the Spirit's powers aren't in use and will only be seen if the user is familiar and imaginative with it's feats. [ citation needed ]

God-like Capabilities: Like other overpowering figures, the Spirits have various capacities that challenges those of godly-powered individuals. [ citation needed ]

  • God-like Speed: They are extremely fast entities vastly accelerating that almost couldn't be seen through the human naked eye. [ citation needed ]
  • God-like Durability: Their durability greatly exceeds their Ghost Rider counter parts. The Spirits are invulnerable to almost any form of attack from earthly to cosmic. [ citation needed ]
  • God-like Reflexes: Their reflexes surpasses even the fastest being to the point where their actions are invisible. [ citation needed ]
  • Superhuman Strength : If in full control, the Spirit can lift objects and other materials to incalculable levels, and even when not in full control it bestows great strength upon its host. [15]
  • Superhuman Durability : The Spirits are impervious to any physical attacks making them difficult characters to kill. However, when come in contact or inflicted by a weapon of heavenly origin, this will greatly damage the Spirit. [ citation needed ]
  • Superhuman Stamina: Due to their mystical nature, the Spirits have unlimited superhuman stamina. [ citation needed ]
  • Superhuman Agility: The Spirit's grants it's user's with heightened movements, reflexes and coordination. [16]
  • Immortality: The Spirits themselves are immortal beings. They can live for an eternity and cannot be killed unless a weapon forged from Heaven decapitates them. Since the Spirit is a weapon of Heaven itself, it is possible that it can kill its own kind. [ citation needed ]
  • Spirit Transferal: If a situation occurs where the host is killed by any physical means, the Spirit will detach itself from the current deceased host and will seek out a new body to inhabit. [10]
  • Regenerative Healing Factor: Their supernatural origins grants them the ability to regenerate any damaged or loss limbs through the mystical energies they possess. [ citation needed ]
  • Empathic Reading: They possess the ability to read the heart and souls of individuals they encounter and determine whether or not they are innocent, guilty, and in need of punishment. This is most evidently done when becoming the Ghost Rider. The human host as well can without transformation can detect innocence and evil. [ citation needed ]
  • Identity Tracking: Mostly seen in Ghost Riders, they can detect the individual's identity by simply looking at their souls. Other figures without souls can be detected by sensing their presence. [ citation needed ]

Sin Manipulation: The Spirit's main purpose is to cleanse sin. They can control and be empowered with the negativity released from the world. [ citation needed ]

  • Sin Perception: A sub-power to reading a character's heart and soul, they can also tell, sense and smell what kind of sin or crime the individual committed whether it be a small sin such as petty theft or great one like murdering a person or being cruel to a loved one.
  • Sin Eating: Also known as Sin Removal. They can remove a person's immoral acts to the point where the individual loses their humanity. [ citation needed ]
  • Negative Energy Augmentation: Not only can the Spirit's remove or absorb an individual's transgressions, they can also be strengthened by the negativity released. This could be both sins, from the smallest of actions such as slapping one's wife to committing unforgivable crimes, and negative emotions a person is currently experiencing like misery and depression. [ citation needed ]

Soul Manipulation: They can manipulate the very life giving essence of each being. They can do a number of things: [ citation needed ]

  • Soul Reading: They can read a person's soul to determine whether they are innocent or guilty and tell what kind of sin they commit. [ citation needed ]
  • Soul Consumption Empowerment: Through consuming the souls of other living entities, the Spirit's can be strengthened to increase their powers and become more intimidating. [ citation needed ]
  • Soul Mutilation: Through different means of mutilation, they can destroy the soul from within the individual's body. [ citation needed ]

Elemental Manipulation: All Spirits can control elements, whether earthly, supernatural or cosmic; and use it to their advantage. [ citation needed ]

  • Nature Manipulation: The Spirit of Vengeance can manipulate the forces of the world to their whim. They possess many abilities granting them dominion over the earth, sea and sky which they can impart upon the hosts of whom they possesses, i.e. making the earth crack open and swallow people or create impaling stalagmites, conjuring the weather to create and summon down lighting as is the case with Alejandra Jones. The Spirits can also, through their proxy, expel a host of ravenous locusts which burn and consume the flesh and spirit of those their set upon from his mouth. [ citation needed ]

Magic Manipulation: Whether it is divine or malevolent, angelic or demonic; the Spirits can control, project and generate mystical energies that empowers them and can utilize it in a multitude of ways. One of the Spirit's known magical elements to control is hellfire, a demonic element that can do physical and spiritual damage. [ citation needed ]

  • Necromancy: They have the power to control the dead. They can resurrect the deceased and use them to as form of communication to the world of the living by simply returning their souls from their bodies. [ citation needed ]
  • Possession: As mentioned, they can use the deceased as a form of communication to warn their enemies. [ citation needed ]

Immunity/Resistance: The Spirits are immune to almost many of conditions such as infections. They're highly resistant to such conventions that apparently, reality warpers seem to give them no complications. [ citation needed ]

Demonic Transformation: As the Ghost Rider, the Spirit will reveal itself through the process of transformation. The reason it appears to be a flaming skeleton is because of its purpose to unleash unholy vengeance. It's nether worldly appearance strikes fear unto those who look at it. Most of the Spirit's powers are more evident through the Ghost Rider.

  • Hellfire Infusion: They can imbue any object and materials with hellfire. [18]
  • Hellfire Forgery: In addition to infuse hellfire to objects, they can alter its appearance into something more sinister. Also, they can even create their own piece of equipment made out of the fire. [ citation needed ]
  • Hellfire Constructs: They can structure walls and wings made out of hellfire. [ citation needed ]
  • Hellfire Telekinesis: They can control any object infused with hellfire and do multiple things through their mind. [19]
  • Hellfire Attacks: They can project hellfire through their eyes, mouth, hands and chest. They can create balls, shoot a laser-like beam, spew out massive waves and perform omnidirectional explosions resulting to devastation. [ citation needed ]
  • Hellfire Weather: In some cases, The Rider can bring forth paranormal weather conditions whenever they travel. They can even rain down from the sky a destructive fire storm. [20]
  • Biblical Representations: Other Riders have demonstrated to unleash creatures in the form of a plague found in biblical scriptures such as locusts. [ citation needed ]
  • Vortex Creation: They can even construct portals that lead them to other places. [ citation needed ]
  • Cloning: A sub-power to constructing various objects, they have the ability to craft duplicates of themselves. They will act similarly to their creator. When killed, they will burst into a puff of hellfire. [10]
  • Spirit Absorption: By simply touching another individual possessing the Spirit, they can absorb its essence leaving the host paralyzed or killed by the effect. [21] [2]
  • Size Alteration: Not only can they alter their own size, they can even change the size of other materials as well. [ citation needed ]
  • Penance Ability: All forms of Spirits of Vengeance / Ghost Riders have an ability to strike penance on its victims. It can be in the form of a physical attack such as a fist or a piece of weaponry. One of the most known penance abilities is the Penance Stare , a traumatizing ability where it locks it's victim's eyes to theirs and incapacitates them physically, mentally, and spiritually. It can be focused on certain sins, for example Wolverine was once given the Penance Stare focusing on his sins committed during a single day during World War I. [23] Various circumstances can allow one to resist the Penance Stare such as having multiple eyes, [24] lack of regret, [25] or having suffered great emotional or physical pain. [26] The Venom symbiote has twice proven immune to the Penance Stare, and attempting to use it backfired and incapacitated Johnny Blaze. [27]


Anything they can imbue their hellfire with is a weapon. Their most known weapon to use is a mystical chain capable of growing in great lengths, control the movements with the Rider's mind and penetrate almost anything it breaks. [ citation needed ]


  • The exact nature of the Spirits of Vengeance has been subject to numerous retcons, something that has even been acknowledged in-universe. [3] In Ghost Rider Vol 2 the Spirit of Vengeance bonded to Johnny Blaze was retconned into being a powerful demonic entity called Zarathos , who had been enslaved by Mephisto . [28] Ghost Rider Vol. 3 established that Zarathos was not an actual Spirit of Vengeance, and that the actual Spirits of Vengeance were demons who had been his enemies and were linked to the bloodlines of Johnny Blaze and Daniel Ketch through the Medallion of Power . [8] Ghost Rider Vol. 6 and Heaven's on Fire retconned the Spirits of Vengeance into being angelic in origin - vestiges of God 's power bonded to human hosts after the Great Flood . [29] However, the origin story of Prehistoric Ghost Rider contradicts this, and alongside Damnation depicts the Spirits of Vengeance as demonic entities nominally under the command of Mephisto or whoever sits upon the throne of his underworld . [5] [30]
  • Despite not actually being Spirits of Vengeance, Zarathos (who empowered Johnny Blaze and Alejandra Jones), Noble Kale (who empowered Daniel Ketch), and Eli Morrow (who empowered Robbie Reyes) are often referred to as such, [31] [32] and bestow their hosts with nigh-identical powers. [33] [6] In Avengers (Vol. 8) #22 , Eli Morrow is revealed to not actually be the source of Robbie's powers, which come from an actual Spirit of Vengeance that possessed him at the same time Eli did.
  • The race known as the Skull Men have a similar appearance to the spirit of vengeance, but there is seemingly no known connection. [34]
