The Ghost of Springdale High was a notorious cat burglar named Fred Caskey and was hired by a man named Otto Clase to retrieve a strongbox containing important information after the bones of Alex Bow was discovered inside a school wall. Madeline Naylor and Justin Baldwin were linked to the victim and was hounded by the media and the police. Robbie Baldwin wanted to help his parents and would encounter the Ghost of Springdale High on the school campus one evening. The Ghost wasn't able to get what he came for due to the Masked Marvel's interference. The Ghost reappeared at the high school the next night and was able to find the strongbox in its secret location. The Ghost subdued the Masked Marvel when he came to investigate and choked out Baldwin. The Ghost freaked out when he ran into the cleaning crew and ran back toward the Mask Marvel's location. Baldwin was recovering when the Ghost kicked him and the Masked Marvel started to bounce around the room. The Ghost tried to escape through a window on his feed line but the Masked Marvel tackled him. The Ghost of Springdale High got tangled up on his feed line and apprehended by the cops. Baldwin's parents were cleared of any wrongdoing regarding Alex Bow's death and Caskey turned in the strongbox as evidence to avoid murder charges. The box revealed kickbacks and massive fraud in the construction of the school addition involving Otto Clase. Alex Bow worked for the contractor and police speculated he was killed when he learned about the kickbacks. Police went to the home of Otto Clase and discovered he had committed suicide by poisoning himself.   


The Ghost of Springdale High was created by Roger Stern and Steve Ditko in 1988 and first appeared in Speedball # 4.
