Ghost Rider #18 *SPOILER*

So, ol' Flame Head is an angel!

They did say it was an important issue. Finally, the reason why he catches bad guys instead of being a bad guy.

So, what do people think? Does this legitimise GR, or is this a massive mistake on Marvel's part?

i think its a bad idea. and the demon turning into an angel thing has been done by todd with spawn.

I don't read Ghost Rider so it doesn't have any real importance to me, but it seems silly.

Maybe he's a fallen angel, trying to redeem himself. But even so, I could care less.

It seems silly to me as well. While the idea of a demon as a good guy always seemed incongruous to me, this does seem of a bit wrong move.

Seems there's no love for Ghost Rider on the forums so far.

Poor Ghostie

I wanted to like this Ghost Rider series. I liked the first issue with his escape. Then the second and third didn't do anything for me. I just kept forgetting to pick it up each month and just gave up. I did get the WWH crossover but didn't even read it.

The WWH tie in was the only thing I read.

I've read all of them so far. I wouldn't say they were bad, just not brilliant either. The angel thing is really just daft though. It flies against what we've learned so far and for what? Another opportunity to paint angels as jerks. It does seem like they have a real angel prejudice in his stories recently.

I don't get why they'd want to turn him into an angel. Just seems so off of what he's about.

I wanted to read the Sleepy Hollow storyline since Sleepy Hollow is like 2 miles from my parents' place in Illinois. I was curious if there were any accurate landmarks.

I had a big Ghost Rider period at the beginning of the last series when he fought Blackout, Deathwatch and the Lilin. Good stuff. Don't know about this angel crap, seems unnecessary to me.

I love him being an Angel.

I've been reading the current issues, I think it would be best if he wasn't an angel.

Him being an Angel is the best desicion Marvel Comics has EVER made!

And your reasoning for that is...?

I was raised in a Religious Family growing up, Now that I'm on my own, I still follow through with my "traditions", One of which..........No Demons in the house. Er-Go, GREATEST MARVEL IDEA EVER!

Quoted for truth.

Midnight Sons era Ghost Rider was awesome.  So was original Blaze.

This stuff? Not so much.
