Ghost Rider

Ghost Rider 002Now here's a Marvel character that people seem to have forgotten about. I guess he was lost amiss the river of bad comics during the 90s. Sad, the concept behind Ghost Rider was actually kind of cool. Basically it's another story of a guy selling his soul to save someone else (for naught). Because of this bargain, whenever there's innocent blood spilled (within the vicinity) the guy's skin melts off and he becomes a skeleton fire demon thing riding a flaming motorcycle in order to avenge innocent victims. Kind of a neat little twist on The Legend of Sleepy Hollow's Headless Horseman. I think Garth Ennis (Preacher, The Punisher) is writing a new series for the character and they're making a (most likely bad) movie starring Nicolas Cage.

I liked Nick Cage in National Treasure.

Totally different beast though. Good comic book movies tend to be a rare thing with all the crap being churned out today. I doubt Cage can save this movie.
