The Origin of the First Ghost Rider
Today’s issue of Avengers, Avengers #7, provides readers with the Origin of the First Ghost Rider written by Jason Aaron and art by Sara Pichelli.
So we take a break from the interesting first arc with a look at the origin of the first Ghost Rider, who happens to be a member of Odin’s Avengers 10,000,000 BC which we first saw in Marvel Legacy #1.
The first GR, grew with a tribe of cavemen, but unlike his tribe, he’s smarter, knows how to write and speak.
This kid doesnt know who his father was and got basic training from his mother. Unfortunately for him and his tribe, a stranger appears, takes over as alpha and leader, and they get to talk.
We find out who.or what the guy was but for now, we see the kid, now called Ghost, almost dying in the cold and encountering a talking snake..
Snake offers vengeance for the family that was lost and all that and in the end, Ghost takes on the offer by saying the snake’s real name.
As the boy burns, a pair of mammoth’s kill the snake and “adopts” Ghost.
Five years later, Ghost gets his showdown with the mysterious man…
… Who turns out to be the first Wendigo…
They fight for awhile and when the Wendigo gains the upperhand, Ghost Rider creates his first skeletal whip.
Still outmatched, the Rider is saved by his mammoth who plummets to the cliff along with the Wendigo.
This victory also leads Odin and Lady Phoenix to add Ghost Rider to this team they were trying to build.
