    Huh, a Ghost Rider thread about all of the current Ghost Riders, that's not to bad. Although I still miss Robbie's old thread.

    On another note, a guy by the name of ORB, who is one of the Ghost Riders worst enemies, wrote the appreciation thread? That's just hilariously ironic.

    written a while ago, but reposting

    *************************
    Ghost Rider - How would you write him?
    seeing as they green lighted the sequel, I think it would be a good time to bring this up.

    how would you write ghost rider?

    what do you like about the character?

    Key themes you would use?

    Villains you would use (either from his rogues gallery or marvel as a whole).

    johnny blaze or ketch, or a different spin.

    ****************************

    Personally I would treat him like an old school horror movie monster that even other heroes and villains fear.

    He shows up, tanks insane amount of damage and is always in pursuit.

    he is the spirit of vengeance and a primal force of nature, on par with man-thing in that regard.

    and most of the time, it's from his target's perspective.

    you don't emphasize with the rider, you fear him....even when he's the good guy.


    *****************************

    In contrast, when you use his human side, I would show it as a man possessed. I really liked the carne side of the character and it could be played up a contrast between the lovable carne and the unstoppable spirit of vengence.

    I would keep him in the south west U.S. for the most part, cause it really helps flesh out the marvel universe as a whole.

    And make it a dark western. I really liked that feel.

    *****************************

    As for other characters:

    I really liked his roady from the movie and think having somebody similar as part of his supporting cast would help inject some humanity into the series as a whole.

    There is this RPG, known as deadlands that could be an endless source of demonic monsters with a western theme. With some retooling, they could be considered part of his "rogues gallery".

    after all, ghost rider verses the el diablos could be absolutely amazing if written right.

    I don't mind the new series at all. I look at him as a new character "Called" Ghost Rider...but in my opinion, He is not "THE" Ghost Rider

    I only give that title to Johnny and Danny

    I'm not even bothering with the new series. No bike, no Ghost Rider.

    driving a car can be considered a "Ride".

    I guess it can be but the bike is one of the most prominent aspects of the character.

    I like Johnny Blaze but Danny Ketch was my favorite when that came out in the 1990's. The new series with Robbie Reyes looks good.

    The first comic I ever bought was Ghost Rider #9. I still have it.

    As a fan of Alejandra who I felt the fans shortchanged(gave up too soon/didn't try) and Marvel slighted(hey, Circle of Four should've focused in her book) I'd ask that the OP add one of her covers into the opening post of this thread. Here is one of my favorites.
