World War Hulk
Incidentally, contrast this with Doc Samson's earlier display of the same thunderclap technique. Samson only managed to upend two civilians and a parked car, this, this is several order of magnitudes more powerful.
The Ghost Rider is a Marvel powerhouse. In spite of his mystical nature the Spirit of Vengeance is a very physical being. Here he collapses an entire skyscraper over the Hulk.
No go. The Hulk manages to get ahold of Ghost Rider and he throws flamehead away like a used match. Ghost Rider lassos him with a chain like so.
The plan is simple and at the same time it is a piece of buffoonery: Drag the Hulk out of New York using his mystical bike.
Notice the little 'he he' dialogue balloon coming out of the hole? That's the Hulk. And it's because he did this.
I now vote that Johnny Blaze relinquish control of the Ghost Rider persona to the smarter being he's sharing it with. If the train fiasco doesn't do it this should.
What you see above is the impact between a flaming Ghost Rider and an enraged Hulk.
Let's take a break to hear an expert assessment of the Ghost Rider's powers.
Now some further information.
Okay, so what we have is Johnny Blaze, the control, the safety valve, is out, the uber-powerful Ghost Rider is in. So what happens next?
Preceded by the biggest display of hellfire I've ever seen in a comic the Spirit of Vengeance comes riding in.
Then goes riding out.
What is happening?!
The next two panels show two things.
First, the impressive visual of the Ghost Rider riding through a tank.
Second, the narrative box featuring the voice of Stephen Strange. The complete commentary goes: "The Ghost Rider only avenges the innocent, which we, all of us, are not.
The Illuminati did trick the Hulk into exile. Like elites everywhere they justified the wrong act by pointing to the greater good. But a wrong act is a wrong act. if there was any doubt before, the judgment of the Spirit of Vengeance should lay all doubts to rest. Reed's reaction is the most heartbreaking.
Whew! Let's go visit Ben and Sally, maybe we can get a cup of coffee from the Frontline offices.
No go. We join the pair while they're riding around the city. Check out Ben's comment.
So that would mean Sally Floyd and Ben Urich belong to the crazy group.
Sometime later Sally is on observation duty at a rooftop and sees something flying her way.
It's Luke Cage
Now we can place the time, Luke Cage got thrown out of the Avengers-Warbound fight.
Next, Sally is witness to Daredevil rescuing a little girl.
That Daredevil red just jumps out of the page.
Ben is a witness to the Fantastic Four-Warbound fight.
Hey, a fellow Thing fan.
Here's the effect of the FF defeat on the ground.
With the fall of the first family of heroes, fittingly, New York blacks out.
Poor Danny, all of New York is on "holiday" but he has to work. But, of course, he's a cop and there is a crisis. Unfortunately, Danny's work involves a diplomatic touch.
Smiling on the outside and complaining on the inside is a hard skill to master that can lead to a stroke and a shorter lifespan. Unfortunately, most of us do it, everytime we get up in the morning to do our 9-to-5. By the way, we are now beginning a second story included in the Frontline comicbook.
This is funny.
Here's Danny and his partner.
The mystery they must solve is the death of ARCH-E-5912. From hence to be known as Archie.
I hate that this happened because Archie was a cool robot design that I would have very much liked to see in battle. I'm baffled that this is happening because this is war and war has casualties and do they really need to play detective with Archie instead of simply declaring him as a fatality of a war that the Warbound started?
Here's the poor robot now
So Danny agreed to an alien concept called 'judicial servitude' and he's finally learned what this is about.
Do you recall a day at work when something happens and your blood pressure suddenly became way too high? Danny is having that moment. The pressure is absolutely on. On the plus side Danny: dead men don't have problems. It's a bad joke but it's also true.
