Devil Grip hired Mouse to perform some tasks for him, but when Mouse discovered the truth about his operation, he fled. Devil Grip caught up with Mouse in a cemetery. About to kill the boy, Devil Grip was confronted by Ghost Rider, who had just encountered the hurt and bloodied Mouse in his human form of Dan Ketch. Grabbing Ghost Rider, Devil Grip began to boast about his strength. Ghost Rider then took the opportunity to give Devil Grip his penance stare, immobilizing the villain with the memories of his previous victims.
