Why does Ghost Rider always look fucking awesome but lack a lot of "classic" or really famous stories? Is it the fact that he's a flaming skeleton in black leather outfits riding a motorcycle while swinging a burning chain? I think it's just because he's a flaming skeleton in black leather with a fire-chain on a motorcycle.
The problem is that there’s only two real directions to take him in, but they’ve tried to keep him more or less in the middle as a regular ‘spooky’ part of the larger Marvel universe, same as Son of Satan or Morbius. It ignores that he is A FLAMING SKELETON-HEAD MAN ON A FLAMING MOTORCYCLE FROM HELL. That’s either the most hard-R gory grindhouse shit imaginable, or an unabashed comedy, and while Jason Aaron’s run kind of winked in both directions it couldn’t fully commit. Ideally, we’d either be getting Ghost Rider: MAX by Garth Ennis and Gabrielle Dell’otto, and it’d be the bleakest, bloodiest, grimmest Marvel comic on the stands, packed to the brim with screaming gangsters and disembowelings at the business end of a chain, or Ghost Rider by Christopher Hastings and Ryan Browne, in which he’d be fighting disco-dancing chainsaw-wielding t-rexes in the Savage Land and feuding with his landlord over the smoke alarm in his apartment constantly going off. I’ve heard positive things about the current Ghost Rider who drives a muscle car, but from what I’ve heard it plays it straight, and therefore necessarily completely misses the point of having A FLAMING SKELETON-HEAD MAN ON A FLAMING MOTORCYCLE FROM HELL.
((Look, I know you’re not in the best mood with me, so I went ahead and got something for you.))
Fisk seems uninterested “Yeah, what’cha got this time?”
((I saw that Pip and them were picking out outfits, so I asked for Pip’s opinion on what he thought you’d like to wear. He came up with this, hope you like it ^^.))
Fisk had seemed to quickly grab the outfit and go to the bathroom, face red in embarassment as she went to change. “You did right in asking for his opinion..” Then the door was slammed shut and Mun sighed in relief.
