Ghost Rider

Ghost Rider is the name of several comic book series published by Marvel Comics, and of several fictional characters in the Marvel Universe.
The original Ghost Rider was a masked gunfighter in the American Old West who battled frontier injustice while dressed in a luminescent white costume. The original version was created by writer Ray Krank and artist Dick Ayers in Magazine Enterprises' Tim Holt #11 (1949). After the trademark to the character's name and motif had lapsed, Marvel Comics debuted its own near-identical, horror-free version of the character in Ghost Rider Vol. 1, #1-7 (Feb.-Nov. 1967), by writer Gary Friedrich and original Ghost Rider artist Ayers.
With the introduction of the first motorcycle-riding, supernatural Ghost Rider (see below), this Western character's name was changed — first to the unfortunate Night Rider (a name that also refers to members of the Ku Klux Klan), and then to Phantom Rider.
