Powers and abilities
The Ghost Rider is a human who can transform into a skeletal superhuman wreathed in ethereal flame and supernatural powers. The motorcycles are more likely than normal and can not perform as well. The Ghost Riders are virtually indestructible and notoriously hard to insulate themselves, as they usually do so in their body.  It is possible that they are genuinely immortal, it is said that God created them and only God can destroy them.  Despite being composed of bone and hellfire, the Ghost Riders possess tremendous superhuman strength, enough to easily pick up a truck and hurl it across a road. It has been stated that Johnny Blaze as Ghost Rider can press around 25 tones (50,000 lbs) (or more as seen in World War Hulk ). 
Each Ghost Rider also has specific abilities to him or her.
- Johnny Blaze
- Originally when Blaze turned into Ghost Rider, his body changed. In his new incarnation, this is different and his clothes take on a different appearance with a spiked leather jacket and chains. As Ghost Rider, he can cause his motorcycle to transform and surround itself with hellfire or he can create a new cycle of pure hellfire. He is also capable of projecting hellfire as a weapon. Hellfire “burns the soul” without leaving the body. In his new incarnation, Blaze is now possibly the most powerful hero on Earth. During “World War Hulk”, it was stated by Doctor Strange that Ghost Rider might be as powerful as “Green Scar”and could possibly defeat him. During this series, Dr. Strange states that Ghost Rider protects only the innocent, which none of the Illuminati are. In recent comics Blaze ‘s Ghost Rider has been given the “Penance Stare” and mystical chain, both of which were specific to the Danny Ketch Ghost Rider. Blaze also uses a shotgun and discovered that he can discharge Hellfire from the weapon when he first encountered Ketch. He also has new abilities, including hellfire breath and the ability to produce chains or his throat or chest. He is also capable of incorporating realms.
- Danny Ketch
- When Ketch turned into a ghost rider, his clothes changed with him, taking a spiked leather jacket with chains, gray leather pants and spiked gloves. Likewise, his motorcycle underwent a radical transformation, changing from a high-tech motorcycle (this transformation was not strictly limited to the motorcycle he found in the cemetery as he was able to see the Ghost Rider / Wolverine / Punisher: Hearts of Darkness “). Along with flaming wheels that allow the bike to nearly fly across surfaces, the bike included a shield-like battering ram on the front. As the Ghost Rider, Ketch on a mystical chain. It could grow in length, alter direction while in the air, stiffen into a staff or spear, and separate into several links which can strike like shrapnel and then return to their original form. Daniel’s most famous power was Penance Stare. By locking eyes with a target and mentally focusing, the Danny Ketch Ghost Rider was able to make the best of the world. Some beings have exhibited resistance to this ability, such as Venom and Carnage have their alien symbiote “costumes” that are not technically have eyes; and Madcap who is so masochistiche claims to enjoy the experience. In the 1994 Fantastic Four animated series, this ability was shown to be powerful enough to bring down the mighty Galactus, as Ghost Rider forced Galactus to feel the bread of all those who had died as a result of his feeding on their planets. As Ghost Rider put it “A billion souls”. This display of power, though, appeared to be a rewrite for the animated series, as the original storyline in Fantastic Four issue 243, has Doctor Strange casting a spell that causes all of the souls of those visited upon him, at once. Originally, this incarnation of the Ghost Rider could only be summoned if Danny was present when innocent blood was spilled, at which time Danny had to touch the gas cap of his motorcycle for the transformation process to occur. Later, he was able to summon the Ghost Rider without touching the gas cap but still needed to wait for the innocent blood to be spilled. Later still, he was able to summon the Ghost Rider by willpower alone.
- Robbie Reyes
- The ghost of Eli Morrow that uninhabited Robbie’s body is not, according to Johnny Blaze, a true Spirit of Vengeance. Regardless, he gives Robbie several abilities to that of other Ghost Riders, including the power to manifest and control chains ending in thin knives or sickles.  The Morrow’s ghost Rider, which allows him to get his Ghost Rider, allows Robbie in his Ghost Rider. It can also be driven remotely, and Robbie’s Ghost Rider can pass harmlessly through it, allowing it to drive into foes. The car ‘s trunk, when opened, acts as a portal, allowing the Ghost Rider to transport anything, including people, to any location. Though it is initially unknown if Robbie’s Ghost Rider form possesses the divine powers of his predecessors, he eventually displays the ability to use the Penance Stare during a battle with Star Brand .  Elderly woman is a young woman who plays with a teenage boy and plays with her boyfriend. His Ghost Rider also displays the ability to change to a more powerful and powerful form when Robbie is fully angered. 
Other Spirits of Vengeance
Michael Badilino , a former member of the New York City Police Department , is one-third of an “Organic Medallion of Power”; the other two are Ketch and Blaze (the Medallion itself was never explained in any true detail). He possesses powers more in line with those of the Zarathos version of Ghost Rider, though he also possesses the Penance Stare and his motorcycle appeared to share features with the Noble Kale version. His appearance is distinguished by a deep purple skull, broad fangs from his upper jaw, and backswept curved horns on the top of his skull.
In his superhuman form, Badilino was called Vengeance , and initially attempted to kill the Ghost Rider, believing him to be Zarathos. Vengeance later became the ally of Ghost Rider and Johnny Blaze. Vengeance would also take over the role of the Ghost Rider and even semi-seriously referred to by Spider-Man after the apparent death of Ghost Rider in battle with Zarathos and Acolytes The Fallen. Vengeance killed himself, along with the villain Hellgate, by triggering a massive explosion through his Hellfire, the source of the mystical flames that encompasses the bones of both Vengeance and Ghost Rider.
Vengeance reappears in the last four issues of Ghost Rider vol. 2, involved in Blackheart’s plans to kill Noble Kale. Vengeance aids the Ghost Rider in the ensuing battle, destroying Blackheart and ruling Hell during Ketch’s absences.
