I knew this would be ranked among the best
3 November 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the episode where we get to learn of Ghost Rider's origin. I agree with many people that it's one of the best that the series has ever created. Of course, it could always get lower. A lot of people such as myself were thinking that Mephisto was going to appear directly in this. He doesn't really, but we do get see another version of Ghost Rider give him his powers. Now, I'm not that familiar with the comics, so I don't know how faithful this is. Anyway, it's wonderfully done. We also get some great stuff with Lucy the ghost. Ghost Rider's brother really shines here too.

As usual, we get some other scenes with the many other characters and it's really done well. It might take awhile for this to get really get, but it's well worth it. It's just a great looking episode and we get some great personal insight into the Marvel mythos. At first, it seemed like Ghost Rider was just a gimmick, but they work him in wonderfully. It's so great to see this series capture the Marvel spirit! It just gets more creative! ****
