@seekquaze: dude your whole post is base on no undertanding of Ghost Rider. His power does not "vary" he simply has two modes of power. Human control (Blaze, Ketch) which is the weakest the Spirit of Vengeance control (Zarathos, Nobel Kale) which is the strongest.
Deacon was protected by Angel Zadkiel who manages Ghost riders and fought only human control Blaze. Thor fought the Spirit Control Zarathos and was lmao stomped. That simple.
Two levels of power? Then his power varies. Fact is over the years sometimes Ghost Rider is shown to be an unstoppable force and other times not. In the early 2000s or so he was given a massive push and power upgrade. That has downgraded some to where the likes of Punisher have defeated him without weapons from heaven.
And there is no indication Zadkiel made the Deacon immune. Only the Deacon was not effected because of he felt no guilt or something like that. He is not the only mortal character to shrug off the penance stare. Both Venom and Punisher have as well.
