Ghost Racers #1-4

Post by Col_Fury » Tue Aug 08, 2017 3:40 am

GHOST RACERS #1 (August 2015)
By Felipe Smith & Juan Gedeon

APPEARANCES:
Arcade, Robbie Reyes (“Hell Charger,” “Mechanic from Hell,” also in fb), Alejandra Jones (“Nicaraguan Hellfire,” also in fb), Johnny Blaze (also in fb), Danny Ketch (“Danny Boy,” also in fb), Carter Slade (“Satan Stomper,” “Undead Thoroughbred”), Eli (also in fb), Gabe Reyes, Zadkiel
a MODOK (in fb), some Venoms (in fb), some zombies (in fb)

FLASHBACK:
Robbie Reyes becomes famous in the Ghost Races.
SYNOPSIS:
Robbie Reyes wins again the Ghost Races. The losers are punished and Arcade plots Robbie’s downfall.

NOTE:
Alejandra Jones is called both “Jones” and “Blaze.” Obstacles are put in the path of the race to make it more exciting (think Deathrace 2000), some of which are zombies and random Venoms.

GHOST RACERS #2 (September 2015)
By Felipe Smith & Juan Gedeon

APPEARANCES:
Robbie Reyes (also in fb), Gabe Reyes (also in fb), Arcade (also in fb), Chief Zadkiel (“Guardian Angel,” also in fb), Dan Ketch (in fb), Zero Cochrane (“Viro Mutilator,” also in fb), Alejandra Jones (“Black Magic Menace,” also in fb), Knuckles O’Shaughnessy (in fb), Eli (also in fb), Shark Rider, Venus Compiler (“Racetrack Reaper,” “Gambler’s Ruin”), Carter Slade, Vengeance, a Gorilla
Captain (Steve Rogers, the one from Planet Hulk, in fb)
A lady Thor (in fb), Frog Thor (in fb)

FLASHBACK:
Robbie Reyes is a normal kid in Doomstadt until his brother opens a fire hydrant. Robbie takes the fall for the misdemeanor, is branded a criminal and thrown in jail. Since Zadkiel senses an Ignition Spirit in Robbie, he’s put into the Ghost Races instead of the gladiator arena. When Robbie loses he race he’s tortured along with the other losers. Robbie and he ghost inside him vow to never lose another race.
SYNOPSIS:
The now famous Robbie doesn’t realize Arcade is betting against him, and is rigging the race so Robbie loses. When the race starts, Robbie is shocked to see his friends stitched together as a giant monster. He tells Eli to break them out of the race. When they vanish, Zadkiel super-charges the other Ghost Racers so they can find Robbie.

NOTE:
The gladiator games are fought by criminals from different domains (same as Ghost Racrs; they’re charged with crimes). Some of the Ghost Racers SEEM to be from Doomstadt (Robbie is (for sure) at least), but there are indications that other racers are from different Domains. For example, there’s the Undead G-Man in INHS:ATNR (not that he’s in the Ghost Races) who is also a “Spirit of Ignition.” It’s a pretty safe bet that, say, Zero Cochrane is from 2099, and Carter Slade is from the Old West. It wouldn’t surprise me, though, if more Ghost Racers came from Doomstadt if they’re arresting people for fooling with fire hydrants.

GHOST RACERS #3 (October 2015)
By Felipe Smith & Juan Gedeon

APPEARANCES:
Gabe Reyes (also in fb), Robbie Reyes (also in fb), Eli, Zero Cochrane (also in fb), Dan Ketch (also in fb), Carter Slade, Alejandra Jones (also in fb), Vengeance (also in fb), a Gorilla (also in fb), Zadkiel, Arcade, Lisa
a Lady Thor, Frog Thor

FLASHBACK:
The Ghost Racers remember what life was like before they became Ghost Racers.
SYNOPSIS:
The Ghost Racers chase down Robbie, but eventually they all calm down and realize they’re being manipulated by Zadkiel. Hey let Robbie go, and then are tortured by Zadkiel. Robbie goes home to ind his brother missing, and sees on TV that he’s the newest Ghost Racer.

GHOST RACERS #4 (November 2015)
By Felipe Smith & Juan Gedeon

APPEARANCES:
Robbie Reyes, Eli, Lisa, Gabe Reyes (“Baby”), Arcade, Zadkiel, Dan Ketch, Vengeance, Zero Cochrane, Johnny Blaze, T-Rider Rex (“Big Boy”), others, Venus Compiler, Carter Slade, Alejandra Jones, a Gorilla

SYNOPSIS:
Robbie returns to the races, frees his brother and gives the other Ghost Racers a pep talk. They turn on Zadkiel and Arcade; Robbie de-powers Zadkiel and the others kill Arcade. They leave Doomstadt to cleanse Battleworld of the wicked and corrupt as the SPIRITS OF VENGEANCE.

NOTE:
Any appearance by Arcade will obviously have to happen before this. You know, since he gets his eyes burned out and all murdered and stuff here.
