The Phantom Rider (previously known as Ghost Rider) is a superhero in the Marvel Universe during the 1800's and the first character to be known as Ghost Rider.

OriginEdit

After being nearly murdered by a gang of cattle herders looking to frame Native Americans for attacks, schoolteacher Carter Slade is revived by the medicine man Flaming Star.  Flaming Star convinced Carter that his near-death experience was a sign that he was destined to fight injustice, which he then went onto do as the Ghost Rider.

OriginEdit

Carter Slade was born and raised in Ohio in the mid-19th century along with his brother Lincoln (Carter's parentage has yet to be revealed).
