it's a four-way tie between the sentry, gladiator, ikaris, and hyperion - all the characters that are essentially superman

If/when they bring Ghost Rider into the MCU, I hope it's the guy who did it on Agents of Shield.  I thought he was great.

Ghost Rider? As long as he has his car? That shouldn't count if it is because of his car.

Marvel has countless teleporters who can cross any distance instantly.

Marvel didn't "confirm" shiat. This entire article is extrapolated from a single quote in a comic, uttered by Deathlok. The article says that as well.

However, if what Deathlok says is true, then all Ghost Riders can make their vehicles the fastest thing in the multiverse.

Seriously, someone wrote a whole article just so they could get "Marvel", "Ghost Rider", and "The Avengers" into a friggin' search engine.

I was gonna say, by the time Ghost Rider knows where to go, the Vanisher is already there. . .

The speed escalation in comics has always been absurd. Eventually there's no difference between teleportation and superspeed. If Ghost Rider can reach anywhere in the universe before Strange fully steps through one of his portals, there's really no difference between the functions, other than possibly allowing someone or something else through it.

Like Flash talks about being able to perceive events happening in less than an attosecond. Neat brag, but that's farking insane!

kdawg7736: Ghost Rider? As long as he has his car? That shouldn't count if it is because of his car.


He's Ghost Rider, not Ghost Walker.

That, and his powers give the car the ability to do that, the car just doesn't do it for anybody.

Nah, it's the whole crazy-ass "Savage Avengers" story line. Now there are thousands of Deathloks, thanks to Ultron, and the one not under control is friggin' Miles Morales. (No, really.)

Yeah, my Marvel pull list is maybe 4/5 books now. ASM, Shulky, DD, maybe the new Deadpool (#1 was ok, but more brood nonsense looks like), Genis-vell, Ant Man (which I don't read, but pull out of habit). I could drop any of them and not miss them.

You got a fast car
I got a job that pays all our bills
You stay out drinking late at the bar
See more of your friends than you do of your kids
I'd always hoped for better
Thought maybe together you and me'd find it
I got no plans, I ain't going nowhere
Take your fast car and keep on driving

This bullshiat is why I absolutely detest DC's Legion of Superfriends. The implications of the Flash alone mean an end to human suffering, to say nothing of the rest of the Gods and Demigods that make up the rest of its pantheon.

The car Ghost Rider is stupid. The motorcycle Johnny Blaze version with the more bone-like skull is the one that they should bring into the MCU. The Robbie Reyes version is just so pathetic.

That looks like it's a Dodge Charger, which is the car Nicolas Cage drove in Drive Angry. And what is another role that Nicolas Cage played? That's right: Ghost Rider. We've come full circle.

Why does anyone bother to waste their time on these arguments? They're not real. They're drawn dreams and wish-fulfilment. And this particular example is no more damn stupid than anything else these characters do on a regular basis.

Yeah, that's modern CBR, unfortunately. I did a few months' work for one of its sister sites back in 2020, and it's all about that publish-or-perish mentality. For every one article on there that's got some original coverage, there are 20 pieces of low-effort digital noise written by somebody who's earning peanuts.

It's not a shock when it's stupid; it's a surprise when it's decent.

Given the amount food the Flash needs to consume to fuel his superspeed, and the fact that his costume doesn't have a functional rear exit, it's safe to say that he's usually full of sh*t...  I suspect this statement is no exception.

DC should use its next Crisis reboot (are they doing them annually now?) to bring the power levels of everyone way, way, way down. It's gotten all Dragon Ball Z over there.

Flash wears underwear made out of goes fast and can travel time and has a lightspeed punch that basically creates a little supernova where it hits but doesn't smash his human hand up and this is the absurd part?

Flash makes no sense in that argument. Is he treating guns as sentient beings? Superman isn't saying arrest anyone with a gun, but just get rid of them like if he could just swipe all the nukes and through into the sun. Flash basically went reddit strawman in an attosecond with his leaps in logic.

Actually light propagates at a fixed rate, so he should be faster than his headlights.
