#1 Posted by Octagon Enigma (2121 posts) - - Show Bio

Okay, has anyone read Ghost Rider 2099? I just read an issue, and I couldn't make heads or tails of it. From what I picked up, Ghost Rider's no longer connected to Mephisto in any way, he's Japanese, he's a cop, and his mom is some sort of druggie. What??? I've said it once, I'll say it again, if it ain't broke, don't fix it!!! Anybody else got any comments about that liitle fiasco of a series?

I think I bought like the first 2 or 3 issues. Then I stopped. I've blocked it from my memory. All I remember is the cover to issue #1.

Ghost Rider 2099 isn't the Ghost Rider we know, he's literally from the year 2099, as were all the characters in the 2099 titles.

I know that, but they completely distorted what Ghost Rider was. In that series, he was like some sort of technological mutate that, for some reason, no one saw was different from everybody else. It was truly just a bunch of messed up sh*t.

It seems probable, since Doom is super genius and all that jazz.

GR2099 Was about a bad seed kid ( Kenshiro "Zero" Cochrane) living in Transvers City during the time of 2099. He had stole some important info which he and his gang were hunted down for and killed. The person who hired the assassination of the gang was an employee of the corperation named D/Monix, which was Zero's father. Zero was able to download his consciousness into cyber space before dying where a strange artificial entities known as Ghost Works. The gave him a mechanical body, with holiraphic tech, and other shit as he tries to bring down the corperation that killed him and free the city from it's lies.
