List RulesVote up the Ghost Riders that make you want to throw up the horns and bang your head.

Spirits of vengeance appear in all manner of mythology, but Marvel Spirits of Vengeance are specifically associated with one figure in particular - the Ghost Rider. Ghost Rider powers are typically derived from a mortal host bonding with a Spirit of Vengeance, a hookup that is usually facilitated by Mephisto, a Comics Code-friendly version of the Devil.

This adaptable origin story has led to a multitude of Ghost Riders over the years, and Marvel Comics' talented artists have used the character’s fiery power set to depict some seriously heavy metal imagery. One doesn’t need the Penance Stare to take a good hard look at these beautiful renditions of badassery.
