Characters Appearing: Ghost Rider (Danny Ketch), Mr. Hyde, Noble Kale, Werewolf By Night
Ghost Rider #55
Issue(s): Ghost Rider #55
Danny Ketch has apparently been working as a bartender, and he gets an offer to work a special event for four times his usual pay in a shady area.
Also at the event is Dr. Calvin Zabo, aka Mr. Hyde.
Jack Russel (the Werewolf) is also at the event. Which turns out to be more than just shady.
Jack transforms first, trying to stop the butchering. But Hyde is able to subdue him.
So Danny has to save him as Ghost Rider.
However, Hyde flees. Ghost Rider chases him. Werewolf By Night stays behind and to torture the club owner (whose name was Morphine, but he never appears again and doesn't seem to be powered).
Ghost Rider seems to catch up with Mr. Hyde but we don't see what happens.
It's not much of a story (definitely feels like back-up filler material to me) but Ellis' narration is at least well written and i like seeing Werewolf By Night and Mr. Hyde. I do feel like there are two competing versions of Mr. Hyde in the Marvel universe: the creepy horror version that appears in this title (and maybe Hulk #368) and the more traditional super-villain version who happens to be (more or less) concurrently appearing in Captain America. It's understandable that Mr. Hyde might be used in both ways, but i wish it wasn't at almost the exact same time.
Quality Rating: C-
Chronological Placement Considerations: Since it's not shown exactly what happens to Hyde, i guess it doesn't matter if he appears here before or after Captain America #434.
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A
Dreadful coloring job.
