Johnny Blaze is a stunt motorcyclist who use to work in carnivals alongside his father Barton Blaze. Who died in an accident while performing a stunt when Johnny was too young. His mother abandoned him. Johnny was then adopted by The Simpsons family.
The new beginning
The family consisted of Crash Simpson his wife Mona and daughter Roxanne. Crash also ran a stunt show like Johnny’s father. Johnny decides to follow his father’s footstep and started motorcycle riding. When he was fifteen his motorcycle caught fire during a practice session. Mona Simpson dies in that bikes explosion before she dies she asks Johnny to make a promise to her that he’ll never ride in the show due to the danger which Johnny agrees to. After a few years, Johnny is seen secretly riding with Roxanne who confesses her love for Johnny.
After some time Crash tells them both that he has cancer and he will be doing his last show. Eager to save his stepfather Johnny summons the demon Mephisto and offers his soul to save his stepfather. His stepfather is cured just in time so he could die in a crash attempting a world record.
The Spirit of vengeance arises
At that very night, The Devil comes to collect Johnny’s soul. Roxanne intervenes and saves Johnny’s soul using The Holy Bible. She succeeds but enraged with what happened the Devil instead bonds the demon Zarathos to Johnny’s soul cursing him to become the Ghost Rider.
Ghost Riders Abilities
After becoming the agent of vengeance Johnny gains Immense superhuman strength. In the presence of evil Johnny transforms into the Ghost Rider. To aid him is his trustworthy hellcycle, he also uses an enchanted chain fused with hellfire. Johnny also gains immortality and the power to travel between interdimensional realms. These are nothing compared to the Ghost Riders ultimate weapon The Penance Stare. Which makes the guilty feel all the pain they’ve ever caused burning inside them.
Later the mantle of power is passed to Danny Ketch. Who happens to be Johnnys long lost brother. Johnny becomes his mentor along with the caretaker. After that, it is seen that Johnny cannot escape the curse and rides as the Ghost Rider again.
