Ghost Rider #49
Issue(s): Ghost Rider #49
Meanwhile, the Hulk goes to Cypress Hill cemetery to investigate something detected by the Pantheon. We see that Danny Ketch's skull in the cemetery has begun to glow.
Badilino also goes to the cemetary, and when he sees the Hulk he ridiculously assumes that he's working for Mr. Hellgate.
While they fight, agents of Hellgate arrive. They've been sent to retrieve Vengeance. The Hulk is a complication, but they're afraid of Hellgate's wrath if they fail.
Note that the agents talk about Rak and Dread as if they're still alive.
Of all the ways that Vengeance might attack the Hulk, i never would have expected a kick to the nuts.
The Hellgate agents were originally just going to sit back and watch the two fight each other, but they're supposed to capture Vengeance alive, so one of them jumps in when the Hulk says he's going to kill him (the other chides him, saying the Hulk was just posturing). The attack from the agents convinces Vengeance that the Hulk isn't working for Hellgate, and convinces the Hulk that Vengeance is a good guy.
Everybody wants to be She-Hulk nowadays.
The goons are of course easy to mop up, but we don't see what happens to them after they're defeated. The Hulk says he's going to have some Pantheon agents investigate the "shadow side" at the cemetery to ensure that Doctor Strange sealed it up properly, and then he invites Vengeance to come to a bachelor party that he's headed to. Vengeance declines.
Unbeknownst to everyone, Danny Ketch's skull continues to glow and then burst into flames.
Have to love how next issue is promoted:
Die cut and foil stamped AND featuring the "death of another family member"?!?! *Drool* You know i can't resist that!
Quality Rating: D
Chronological Placement Considerations: The Hulk says he has a bachelor party to get to. It's not specifically said to be Rick Jones' so we could pretend it's just someone at the Pantheon if absolutely necessary, but that's obviously not the intention. So this should go directly before Hulk #417. Ghost Rider is resurrected next issue but it doesn't continue directly from the scenes here.
Continuity Insert? N
