You can’t keep a good motorcycle riding, demon-possessed super hero down for long.
After cancelling the latest Ghost Rider series abruptly with its fifth issue in March this year, Marvel might be kicking the tires on another launch featuring multiple flame-headed protagonists and their fire-spitting vehicles.
As reported by comic book blog Bleeding Cool, Marvel has filed a trademark for a title called “Spirits of Vengeance.” The site notes that trademarks could be filed to deter competitors from taking similar names, but the House of Ideas previously published a comic with the same name in the ‘90s.
The previous comic had Blaze and Ketch teaming up in the wake of the Rise of the Midnight Sons storyline.
Marvel also published a comic featuring all of the Ghost Riders during the Secret Wars event, called Ghost Racers. That comic saw the Riders forced to compete against each other in races for the amusement of the Battleworld denizens with the villain Arcade serving as their master.
After two failed movies with Nicolas Cage and the rights returned to Marvel Studios, the character debuted on television last year in Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The Robbie Reyes version returned for the season finale, making a temporary swap with Coulson who was able to wield the Spirit of Vengeance to eliminate the big bad.0comments
Time will tell what Marvel’s plans are for the characters now, if there are any, but there’s a good bet that we can expect some huge comic book news in July when the nerd world descends upon San Diego Comic-Con.
