Holy Crap, Ghost Rider Is Awesome

From the comments section of my last post concerning the absolutely essential Champions Classic v.2:

Did this Champions trade have the issue where Ghost Rider goes all sick-house on Kamo Tharn's monster squad?


Yes, other Chris. Yes it did.





When even Boisterous Bill Mantlo can't form the words to describe how totally badass something is, that is some serious business.




BONUS FEATURE: More Fun With MODOK!




Get out your hoverchair and do the MODOKAWAY. And Lean Back. Lean Back.

Jesus H. Crisp, those panels of Ghost Rider are awesome. Easily my favorite moment from the Champions series. Thanks for showing the love, Messer. Sims!

Nothing phases MODOK, not even tipping.
He's hardcore.

Geez, I don't ever recall seeing Ghost Rider's skeletal structure before.

I almost feel kinda dirty.

Really, though....what's going on there? I assumed G.R. had a "normal" human body under the jumpsuit, with only his skull exposed (and flaming).

Guess not.

I thought that too, because he has muscle structure.

Still, leaping off the bike for a mid air beatdown is still cool, even with the stature of a girl.

It seems to be a pattern...

Ghost Riders body that is, when ever you see it he's about to do something awesome.

He does it again in Vol. 2 of his series.

The Champions appear in Essential Godzilla, but they are(unsurprisingly) totally ineffectual. It is Godzilla, after all.

Hey, I have that issue of Godzilla...and yes....they were pretty useless.

Except for Hercules!

Herc planted himself under Godzilla's foot, then tossed Godzilla on his ass...taking out a mile or two of buildings in the process!

Also, "VASHTOOM" is the sound of M.O.D.O.K. falling? I tought that, like countless other big metal things falling, it would sound something like "CLANG" or "KLUNG"; but this it M.O.D.O.K. falling, so it has to be extra awesome, so it goes "VASHTOOM".

VASHTOOM is actually the sound of the explosion that's causing MODOK to be tilted, not the sound of the tilting itself.

You know what would really be cool? A MODOK version of Ghost Rider. Just imagine MODOK, but instead of a giant head, it's a giant flaming skull! On a wee flaming motorcycle!
