Johnny Blaze’s long ride as Ghost Rider will reach its end (again) as a new Ghost Rider debuts next year in Ghost Rider: Final Vengeance.
Yes, his 50-year ride comes to an end … minus all the years when he wasn’t Ghost Rider, which was from 1983, when the original series ended and Blaze became demon-free, until the early 2000s, when he was demon-cursed again. So maybe more like 30 years, with a nice gap in between runs when he was living the good life with his wife Roxanne and their kids?
Anyway, this time someone new is going to become Ghost Rider. No, not Danny Ketch, or Robbie Reyes … or that guy who rides the mastodon, or Ghost Rider 2099, or Cosmic Ghost Rider, or the one who was also sorcerer supreme … ah, hell, just take a look at Greg Capullo’s variant cover:
Here are the details from Marvel:
Who is the new Spirit of Vengeance? Johnny Blaze was bonded with the Spirit of Vengeance. Unwilling to be a monster, Johnny used this demon from Hell to do good as the Ghost Rider. But heroism isn’t what the Rider was meant for. So who will be the new Spirit of Vengeance? And what will it mean for the Marvel Universe?
Only writer Benjamin Percy and artist Danny Kim know that answer, but I’m sure we’ll all find out soon enough. Look for Final Vengeance on March 13.
