The Wrong Side: Ghost Rider vs. The Avengers

In this feature, I examine comic book fights that were particularly notable in the wrong side winning (or at least that the fight wasn’t won the “right” way). This really isn’t a big deal, of course, as it doesn’t really matter if the “wrong” person won a fight. But it’s fun to talk about!

If you want to suggest a fight for future inclusion in this feature, drop me a line at bcronin@comicbookresources.com. Don’t suggest a fight in the comments!

The original supernatural Ghost Rider really didn’t fight Spider-Man much. They met each other a number of times, but they were all team-ups.

Their only slight fights came in Marvel Team-Up #58 (by Chris Claremont, Sal Buscema and Pablo Marcos), where Spider-Man tries to keep Ghost Rider from using his hellfire on the Trapster and fails completely…

And when Ghost Rider is brainwashed in Marvel Team-Up #91 (by Steven Grant, Pat Broderick and Bruce Patterson), where Ghost Rider acquits himself pretty well against Spidey…

So how about Ghost Rider versus the Avengers?
