Ghost Rider Johnny Blaze Respect Thread

Ghost Rider Danny Ketch Respect Thread

Ghost Rider Alejandra Jones Respect Thread

Ghost Rider Vengeance Respect Thread

Ghost Rider Nick Cage Live Action Respect Thread

This respect thread will be ongoing as I read more of Reyes comics. This only includes his two graphic novels of All New Ghost Rider and Ghost Racers.

Ghost Rider misconceptions are quite the norm on battle forums and in general comic discussions. So here is the break down on the abilities, powers, and limits of Ghost Riders shown thus far.

No Caption Provided

Robbie Reyes is the current host Rider in comics, and a unique one at that. Thing about Robbie is he is not like a normal Spirit of Vengeance in that his power is not related to god. It is in fact related to hi murderous hit man of a uncle name Eli who possessed and bonded with Robbie. Granting Spirit of Vengeance like power, which Robbie uses for good. A new and interesting concept that has a lot of similarities with other Ghost Riders, yet many differences.

No Caption Provided

Blaze explains the difference between a true Ghost Rider and Robbie Reyes. A Ghost Rider is an supernatural entity possessing another via deal with heaven or hell. Reyes is possessed by a serial killer spirit, which is why he has Ghost Rider like abilities.

During the Ghost Racers arc, Zadkiel explains Reyes is not a true Ghost Rider. Zadkiel explains he has little influence over Reyes unlike the other Ghost Riders.

Penance Stare

This is arguably Ghost Rider's most powerful attack. This attack allows Ghost Rider to look into your mind and soul, and bombard you with the pain and suffering you caused others. Many people are ignorant to how this works, thinking guilt and sin is a factor. It does not matter.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2

Reyes showed a long range Penance Stare that dropped Starbrand. Stated to work as, "Feel all the pain you've ever caused others. Sent right back at you! Burning right into your soul!"

@sirfizzwhizz: Starbrand is pretty new with his powers. For being so young, and probably a liberal since he was going to college, Im sure all of his liberal tears made him explode over the planet he nuked during Insurrection, but my money is going to be on Connor's when he returns.

How has Reyes faired against Punisher?

@sirfizzwhizz: What are your thoughts on Robbie being able to penance stare, despite not being empowered with a spirit of vengence like other riders?

They never fought to my recollection.

However Cho Hulk and the Goop Monster (Combine Powers of Chulk, X-23, and Silk) was no match for Reyes.
