Marvel’s new Ghost Rider has an awful problem that Hulk only shares in the MCU’s Avengers: Infinity War – he has morphing issues.
Warning: SPOILERS for Avengers Assemble: Alpha #1
Latest Marvel Ghost rider He has seriousness the structure problem who Avengers: Infinity War – and the consequences are equally deadly. While Ghost Rider and the Hulk have little in common (they rarely cross paths in the comics), both must transform from their human form to access their superhuman abilities. in Avengers Assemble: Alpha #1readers are re-introduced to the woes of Bruce Banner’s transformation via an entirely different source: Robbie Reyes.
The Hulk has a long history of mismanaging his transformations from Bruce Banner. In the first few versions of the superhero, Bruce Banner could only transform at night (and his Hulk body was gray, not green). The Savage Hulk, the most famous version, transformed whenever Bruce became incredibly angry (in the MCU, this once represented Bruce’s heart rate exceeding a certain threshold) and only then did Banner learn to control his transformations, albeit to a point . By contrast, Ghost Rider can always control when he transforms – just not anymore.
in Avengers Assemble: Alpha #1Written by Jason Aaron, Brian Hitch, Andrew Corey and Alex Sinclair, the three teams of Avengers – the 616 Avengers, the Multiracial Avengers and the team from Earth’s ancient history – settle their differences when countless Mephistos attack the Quarry God of the multiverse. Ant-Man (here, Tony Stark) drives with Robbie Reyes, the All-Rider, urging the latter to summon his powers. Unfortunately, Robbie is having a hard time. “I can’t do it, You-Man. I can’t change. I can’t become Ghost Rider!” he says, as Mephisto’s army is pounding out the car windows.
Ghost Rider can’t turn when he needs to most
in Avengers: Infinity War, Bruce Banner only transforms into the Hulk once during the opening sequence, and is stuck in his human form for the rest of the movie. Obviously, Robby Reyes has the same problem, except for the universe on the line. It’s worth noting that Reyes, in this continuity, is a little different from classic Johnny Blaze and his The Ghost Rider avatar: he every rider, He is considered one of the most powerful superheroes in the multiverse. Furthermore, there is no real indication as to what caused his shifting problems, and this leads to two possibilities:
Either Reyes’ powers were taken from him or he lost them in some way, or something is preventing him from transforming. With so many Ghost Riders (the Prehistoric Ghost Rider in battle with Captain America at the time), there are probably only so many of them in one reality (not to mention the All-Rider along with other Riders). If this is an issue with Ghost riders Mental fortitude, he could learn a thing or two from the structurewho merged his personalities once (and the same thing could happen again).
