Ghost Rider #57
Issue(s): Ghost Rider #57
The fact that he never appears again probably has more to do with the fact that he's incredibly lame than him being intended as a one-off villain. I could see a ghost character as a regular villain for Ghost Rider (especially one that was a former stunt motorcyclist with the civilian name "Shocks Marley"!).
Johnny Blaze, meanwhile, has gotten a job with the people that the Apparition wants vengeance on...
...so he has to transform into Ghost Rider to protect them.
And for once that doesn't result in his new girlfriend, Nora, leaving him.
But the Apparition does wind up killing her.
Ghost Rider subsequently kills the Apparition.
But hey, he's a ghost, so it's not like he couldn't have come back.
Don't worry. With next issue we're back to lame super-villains that have managed to stick around.
Quality Rating: C-
Chronological Placement Considerations: Flagg Fargo is seen briefly on television but i don't know if it's a live broadcast so i haven't listed him as a Character Appearing.
Continuity Insert? N
