Characters Appearing: Alicia Masters, Franklin Richards, Ghost Rider (Johnny Blaze), Human Torch, Invisible Woman, Mr. Fantastic, Thing
Marvel Two-In-One #80
Issue(s): Marvel Two-In-One #80
Then the Thing runs into the Ghost Rider, who's become a lot more demonic and unhinged since the last time they met.
Despite clearly being a danger to himself and others...
...the Thing helps GR get out of town.
I like how there's been a seemingly coordinated effort in books where Ghost Rider has guest appeared - Marvel Team-Up #91, Defenders #96, here, and soon Avengers #214 - to emphasize the fact that he's become more of a demonic character.
Quality Rating: C-
Chronological Placement Considerations: Ghost Rider's appearance in New York this issue doesn't fit into any logical trajectory from his solo book, so i've just let it fall at publication date. I figure Johnny Blaze gets around.
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: Adventures of the Thing #2
This issue reads like a callback to MTIO #1, when Ben met Man-Thing/Ted Sallis and they went up against the Molecule Man, and where Ben realizes that whatever problems his rocky form might cause, there's always someone in worse circumstances. "There but for the grace of God" indeed.
