Spawn and Ghost Rider is among many popular crossover topics within the comic community, mainly because of their similarities. Both characters wield supernatural powers originating from Hell through a pact with the Devil(Mephisto/ Malebolgia). Later through trial and error of their ways, both characters broke free from their hellish influence and used Hell’s power to free their own souls. They have major differences that determine the outcome of such a battle. Let’s dig in…
Al Simmons was recruited to become the general of Hell’s Army. As general, his power would come second to his master Malebolgia. Spawn’s supernatural powers stems from his symbiotic armor. The armor is a living organism which is infused in Al Simmons’s nervous system, allowing him to control the symbiotic armor with his thoughts, conscious or unconscious. The armor is filled with necroplasm, which has a functioning concept like Green Power Ring. The armor responds and morphs to the will and imagination of Al Simmons. On Earth, Spawn’s magical powers are in limited supply, so his symbiotic armor feeds off evil or dark energy.The bigger the source, the more power it can consume and use without depleting its own power reserves. Battling Ghost Rider would be perfect for Spawn because Ghost Rider’s powers and abilities are supernatural and evil in origin. This battle would keep Spawn fully powered enough to use his magical abilities at maximum potential.
Johnny Blaze was destined to become agent of evil as the Ghost Rider. The Rider’s existence becomes possible from the union between Johnny Blaze and Zarathos. Zarathos is a demonic being in servitude to Mephisto as Violator is with Malebogia. This union is also similar to the Phoenix Force bonding with Jean Grey thus creating Phoenix and Dark Phoenix. Johnny Blaze can revert back and forth as the Ghost Rider at will, when before, was in the presence of evil. With demonic power at his disposal, Ghost Rider can control the mystical fire of Hell, which he channels through weapons or vehicles, making them supernaturally more powerful than before. Seemingly with no limit to his power, Ghost Rider is considered one of the most powerful beings in the Marvel Universe.
Ultimately this battle comes down to the men who are hosts to the power, Al Simmons and Johnny Blaze. Al Simmons’s training and service to his country made him an excellent assassin. Johnny Blaze is a stunt performer, where his mental focus is on surviving death-defying feats than any physical combat training. Spawn has evolved to his higher form, Omega Spawn. This results in unlimited power on both the mortal and immortal planes, making himself third in power next to the power of Heaven and Hell. Ghost Rider is considered one of most powerful in his universe, but his god like potential is not fully realize because of the combat mentality of his mortal host. Would Ghost Rider stand a better chance against Omega Spawn when united with the Venom symbiote and the Red Hulk, or will he fall just as hard under the might of Omega Spawn??
