Fans were surprised on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. tonight when they were treated to an appearance by fan favorite character, Johnny Blaze. During the origin story for Robbie Reyes’ transformation into his own Ghost Rider, we learn it was Blaze who gave Robbie his powers.

After Robbie and his brother Gabriel were shot up, Robbie gets launched out of the car and prays for his brother’s safety. Robbie claims to pray to anyone listening and Blaze answers his call. We get to see a shot of Blaze’s motorcycle, as well as Blaze’s flaming skull, which looks far different than Robbie’s.

In the comics, Reyes is inhabited by a spirit named Eli, while Blaze is inhabited by Zarathos. On the show, we only see Blaze granting Reyes his powers, so it appears they each share the same demon. We may learn more about Robbie’s full origin later in the season, but for now, it seems the devil Robbie had been referring to all along was simply another Ghost Rider.

Clark Gregg also took to Twitter to confirm the “original Ghost Rider” in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which of course could only be Blaze.

With the confirmation of at least two Ghost Rider’s existing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, do you hope we get a Ghost Rider Netflix series? If so, Robbie Reyes, Johnny Blaze, or both? Let us know in the comments down below!

      Yeah that sucks but at least there is Dr. Strange to watch between now and then! So my Marvel fix will be sated for awhile!
