Ghost Rider (Magazine Enterprises)
Real Name: Rex Fury
Search for 'Ghost Rider (Magazine Enterprises)' on Amazon

The Ghost Rider was the supernatural successor to The Calico Kid. In the same way that Dick Grayson was Robin as a kid but Nightwing as a full adult, Rex Fury was initially The Calico Kid before taking the mantle of the Ghost Rider.

The basic gestalt of the Ghost Rider was that he would appear to his enemies as a ghost (through the clever use of flowing clothes, a cape, and some phosphorus). If his appearance didn't scare a confession out of his enemies, then his use of unusual guns, whips and other 19th-century weapons hopefully would.

Though he was pretending to be a ghost, his adversaries, especially in later stories, tended not to be playing around. They actually were ghosts, vampires, werewolves and the like.

Spectre, also illuminated artificially through the use of phosphorescents.

This character was ostensibly an American original. He was the first character to fully meld the horror and western genres. His stories tend to read like particularly scary episodes of The X-Files set in the Old West. Unfortunately, the attempt at actual horror stories would be the cause of the character's demise. He was targeted by the Comics Code Authority consequent to the same House hearings that had killed the mainstream superhero titles. He ceased publication a mere five years after he was introduced.
