"Hell hath no fury like a flaming skeleton on a motorcycle."

The Ghost Rider is a character created by Marvel Comics in the early 1970s, an empyrean/infernal creature made of a human spirit and a Spirit of Vengeance through a contract with Satan, dealings with an immortal vengeful spirit, or a supernatural entity. Ghost Riders tend to seek out vengeance for sins rendered. Notable Ghost Riders include Johnny Blaze, Dan Ketch, Alejandra and Robbie Reyes.

Marvel had previously used the same name for a very different character, a masked western hero - although that character is part of the same continuity, he's generally been distanced from the other versions (and was retroactively renamed the 'Phantom Rider'), so isn't treated as part of the same franchise.
