Doctor Mid-Nite and Ghost Rider



Marvel never did get around to using Ghost Rider on their Netflix shows, which means there's nothing preventing them from bringing him back elsewhere.  He's another character that would do well on the Disney/Marvel streaming service.  Maybe even a Midnight Sons series featuring Johnny Blaze alongside some other of Marvel's occult characters like Man-Thing, Son of Satan and Blade.

Was there something wrong with the version of Ghost Rider we got on Season 4 of AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.? We actually saw both of them, when we found out that Robbie Reyes was "gifted" by Johnny Blaze.

In all honesty, Ross, I don't see that happening with _any_ of those characters. Disney would find their corporate headquarters being picketed by the Far Christian Right in a "New Yawk" minute! :-(

Yeah, we got a faceless cameo from Johnny, but Robbie was the Ghost Rider on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and seems to remain so. I don't mind that at all; it preserves the Ghost Rider movies for those few of us who enjoyed them, while saving the masses who didn't from having to deal with all they didn't like. A Disney+ show featuring Robbie -- or possibly one with Man-Thing -- would be fine; as for Blade, I'd rather see him as a guest star before getting his own.

As for Doctor Mid-Nite, I'm still hoping to see him in a consult with Doctor Strange. ("I came as soon as I got your message! But do you need me as a physician, or sorcerer?" "Both! My patient is Hellboy!")

Nice to see a little Mike Parobeck art. He really got a crappy deal when DC editorial buried his JSA series. He did some of the squarest jaws in an industry known for them.

Nice one! It's always great to see the mighty DOCTOR MID-NITE. One of the most underrated characters in comic book history.

@Wolfhammer: you mean, the Golden Age Charles McNider version? Or the Modern Age Pieter Cross version?

I would like to see a sequel to this using Danny Ketch as Ghost Rider and Pieter Cross as Dr. Mid-Nite.

I liked Mike Parobeck's art as well. It got the job done without being over busy like some art today with pages looking like they were designed to sell original art.

With apologies to Iggy and Bowie.... calling Dr. Midnight! Calling Dr Midnight!
