The problem here, of course, is that the Ghost Rider needs a vehicle to ride. Generally, after the mammoth, they moved onto horses (the Wild West version of Ghost Rider, Carter Slade, rode one), and then motorcycles and cars, which were much more efficient than animals were.

Other versions include:

I mean, I can't picture anyone not thinking that's awesome. Though I also admit I did a Double Take when I first read it, and then when I clicked the link and saw it was for real, I was like C'mon! Are you kidding me!?

But yeah, that's awesome. Ghost Rider deserves all the respect.

The downside to Thanos being dead is that now Squirrel Girl can't defeat him, which means Galactus can't call him a tool.

This conversation about dragons has made me remember that Kitty Pryde's signature sidekick is a small dragon named Lockheed, and that's something the X-Men movies never did. I want the MCU to give Kitty Pryde her dragon.

Cyclops also once outsmarted Dracula & his vampire invasion in an epic convoluted plan I recall.

I've always wondered, how in the world does a girl who can phase through walls have a dragon for a pet?

I think the X-Men went to an alien planet and she found an egg, it hatched, and she raised Lockheed as its mommy. That or the Savage Realm, I'm not entirely sure.

It was later revealed that Lockheed was actually a agent of SWORD, the equivalent of SHIELD but for space affairs, and he was keeping a eye on the X-Men.

Lockheed was always criminally underused imho. He's a very powerful fighter despite his small size — the Brood are shit-scared of him for good reason. In Whedon's Breakworld arc, Implacable Man Ord is scared of Lockheed because Lockheed nearly roasted him alive in their first meeting.

Welp, the logical conclusion is that Kitty becomes the next Ghost Rider with Lockheed as her ride.

Having Lockheed show up in the first MCU X-Men would immediately distinguish it from the Fox Men. Yes, the comics are crazy and that’s why we’re here.

...But we haven't seen dragons in the MCU yet, so I'm not sure if they can just throw them at us. Maybe through Eternals or Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings?

It's a shame the IM movies were made when the MCU was still in their "grounded" phase. Otherwise we could have had Fin Fang Foom.

Well, with Iron Man, it could be said that the madness started here, but with Captain America, Captain Marvel, Ant Man and whatever else gets brought to light, looks like it wasn't so big a deal.
