Ghost Rider Origins and Evolutions
Marvel Entertainment recently announced that the spirit of vengeance will be roaring onto Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. this season and before he makes his debut in the series, it’s time to revisit the long, twisted, and sometimes convoluted history of the Ghost Riders in our latest Origins and Evolutions feature!
Created by Roy Thomas, Gary Friedrich, and Mike Ploog in 1972’s Marvel Spotlight #5, the Ghost Rider we know today has gone through many forms and many human hosts in his time on Earth (and even long before). What ties all of the Ghost Riders together is their thirst for revenge, especially for those who can’t exact it themselves. They don’t call him the spirit of vengeance for nothing. With all the enhancements of your typical superhero plus the command over hellfire, unending chains, and a demonic mode of transportation, he gives new meaning to hell on wheels.
Gabriel Luna will roar into the lives of Agent Coulson and the team as a junkyard mechanic who can turn on a dime into the terrifying Ghost Rider. Will Robbie be a friend or foe to S.H.I.E.L.D. – as well as the world, itself? Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns on Tuesday, September 20 in its new timeslot, 10:00 PM ET on ABC.
