Everybody knows the story of Ghost Rider, born when Johnny Blaze sold his soul to the devil in exchange for saving his father’s life. Bonded with a demon, blah blah blah, Nicolas Cage movie, what a cool visual!

This isn’t him.

This is actually his younger brother Danny Ketch, who took over the mantle in the 1990s with a much-chunkier flame-cycle. Danny is also the reason his G.I. Joe counterpart was never named in the Marvel Comic, instead making a running joke of his being a sneaky Stealth Fighter pilot and no one remembering his name, as Marvel didn’t want to create market confusion with a licensed character. The joke ended up being more memorable than either the Joe or Danny… Sorry, Ketch-fans.

About Author

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
