New-ish Ghost Rider, meet new Hulk
Yes, it’s still Robbie Reyes, and yes that means Ghosty still drives a car. Though with his version of the character on the Agents of SHIELD TV show, you really shouldn’t have expected anything else. Still, it’s good to have some iteration of old flame-head back in the Marvel U… even if he’s not riding a bike. I guess.
There’s plenty of reasons to get up for this one though. For starters, it’s kicking off its run with a bang. A Hulk-sized bang. Though, remember that this is a different Hulk than the classic savage we all remember best. Not that that matters too much. Ghosty v Hulk is a fight that should be a solid one for fans of both heavy-hitters.
Also, there’s that hip-hop variant cover. While it probably means nothing, it’s awesome to see both Blaze and Ketch again. Makes you wonder too, whether there might be room for more than one Rider in the Marvel Universe. Hey, it seems to be heading that way in the MCU, so why not?
