Ghost Rider Vs Spawn

Ghost Rider Vs Spawn

Major grudge match here. And a personal struggle for me as two of my favorite characters face off for bragging rights. I know there are soo many ways each side can win, so in place of logic, I’ll just pick a side knowing that it can go either way.

My pick: Spawn

Who do you think would win?

    Buddy, I couldn’t care less for your anger, and even your “forgiveness”. Since you seem incapable of letting things go, I’ll simply take my leave.

    “this month will see the release of the mini event titled “Heaven’s on fire”.”

    Now THAT sounds like something worth reading.

    i am capable of letting things go and i did not wanted to start in this argument in the first place and i did not want you to care for either anger or forgiveness but i could say that it does not matter if you care or not this would not of started if you came into the discussion and bring in uneccessary humor which i did not want i will take my leave too i did not want to argue in the first place

  4. nick August 16, 2009 at 7:59 pm -      #104

    lets not take this any further and put it behind us because it leads to pointless and uneccessary argument or debate in the future

    “Now THAT sounds like something worth reading.”

    oooohhh yes!

    @ Matapiojo
    Wow, took me a while to finish this post…but wow….now i do fear the return of Rob. Mata, bles your soul, you tried so valiantely to show Rob the errors of his way, and yet still, the darkness blinded him. Your argument was precise, and actually had real facts behind it (unlike some person…..).

    I am not saying Spawn isn’t powerful, but when you have someone who can be on the same turf as Thor, Hulk, and esc. who know he is pretty strong.
    People clearly underestimate the power of the penance stare on Spawn.

    You should be made a saint, or just a Spirit of Vengance (what ever makes you happy).

    “You should be made a saint, or just a Spirit of Vengance”

    THAT WOULD BE EPIC!

    Although I doubt fate would ever grant me with any sort of power, much less as much as a Spirit of Vengeance.

    It would be wholesale slaughter…

  8. nick August 18, 2009 at 1:10 pm -      #108

    Ghost rider is no doubt is one of the most powerful beings and he is a great hero also a more less demonic ant-hero unlike Spawn who is completely demonic but still retains a good side i guess i can agree with Pondering fool. Everyone has good and bad in them.

    ok mata, i gotta commend you an L-W for sticking to your guns against alot of this ignorent dribble, i dont think i could for that long

  12. Terror August 18, 2009 at 2:06 pm -      #112

    Been a while since I’ve been here! But thought I’d chime in. I saw a post made earlier by LW claiming that Spawn at his most powerful is not a match for Shost Rider?

    A few points you guys might want to remember:

    At his most powerful, Spawn became the KING of Hell. That’s right, he took Satans place. He had UNIVERSAL level power, and could manipulate reality with a mere thought. If he didn’t like you, he could wish you into the heart of a star 5,000,000 lightyears away.

    So I ask LW, or anyone else making such claims, what does Ghost Rider have that can compete with this? Ghost Rider is cool and all, but he is a second tier character, he’s rarely considered even a knat by celestial level beings. Spawn on the other hand, had the power to snap solar systems and galaxies out of existence.

    Perhaps many here are confusing “Spawn at his most powerful” with movie Spawn, or the First Age?

  13. AkumaTh August 18, 2009 at 2:21 pm -      #113

    @Terror: Ghost Rider defeated Satan as well, each time being more powerful then the previous one. Too boot, Ghost Rider is a weapon of heaven, meaning his attacks would do more damage to demonic beings, ala Spawn, more then any other creature.

    Add to that, Ghost Rider had the power to defeat the Hulk, who took the rest of the Marvel Universe and beaten Sentry to a standstill. Imagine that much power but twice as damaging.

    Pretty much, no matter which Spawn you use, Ghost Rider was built to defeat him.

  14. Matapiojo August 18, 2009 at 2:28 pm -      #114

    I agree that at Spawn’s most powerful, he would dominate the match.

    Contrary to what you may think, Spawn’s peak is not his reign over Hell. Fueled by the powers of the Mother, Spawn was a powerful god that was an equal (and perhaps superior) to both God and Satan. Scorched the earth, and subsequently re-created it.

    Wrath of God Incarnate or no, the Spirit of Vengeance is not near that level. Conjecture points at him being god-like in power, but that isn’t a fact at this point. Should the match take into consideration the characters’ peaks, the victory will be for the demon without question from this debater.

    However, following the Debating Rule #1 ( BankGambling.wikispaces.com/Debate+Guidelines ), Spawn is not even a match.

  15. Terror August 18, 2009 at 2:48 pm -      #115

    @Terror: Ghost Rider defeated Satan as well, each time being more powerful then the previous one. Too boot, Ghost Rider is a weapon of heaven, meaning his attacks would do more damage to demonic beings, ala Spawn, more then any other creature.

    Ok Akumath – So you are asserting that Ghost Rider can defeat a being who can wipe out Galaxies, and was more powerful than Satan and God? Huh – Please back that up… Ghost Rider couldn’t even stop Hulk! Ghost Rider was useless against the IG, IE, CC, and other celestial level powers, yet you claim he can defeat a being who can remake the Galaxy? Waiting for proof….

  16. Terror August 18, 2009 at 2:50 pm -      #116

    Mata – I agree with you. At his lower operating levels, Spawn is great, but not as powerful as Ghost Rider at normal operating levels. My comment was aimed at LW’s faulty statement, and some of the others making sweeping statements.

    Ghost Rider is a great character, and I especially appreciate the creative powersets he was giving. Makes him for more interesting than the copycat “cape wearing” set.

  17. nick August 18, 2009 at 3:05 pm -      #117

    You make a good point and i gotta say well done for presenting the proof Spawn can stand up to Ghost rider but i had a change of opinion and had to say they are equally matched but i personally myself give the winning edge to Spawn. Thank you for placing hope in Spawn but Ghost rider is really powerful in huge areas, in one of my comments which i believe is comment .82 it describes and gives positive and logical facts about Spawn`s true potential which was hard and very doubtful to realize or come upon in that basic comment all details are listed and placed in order to good understanding on how Spawn has the same level of chance of becoming the clear winner, both Spawn and Ghost rider have fought major enemies in their days but the point being is that Spawn`s enemies are hugely powerful in alot of cases and same goes for Ghost rider but when Spawn was at his most powerful i have to say i completely agree with you Terror because Spawn was able to defeat and tear apart Zera and her Avatar which is a huge task to completely accomplish its like clarifying that Spawn was completely invincible in which i studied and researched in the past i have found out that in the Armageddon arc Spawn completely wiped out a whole entire army of demons and angels and sent them back to where they came from, but believe me Ghost rider is not a pushover or a softy hes just as tough and willing as Spawn but it depends under certain circumstances, Ghost rider as you can say is wildcard!!

    Ghost rider villains
    Zadkiel
    Lilith
    Mephisto
    Black Heart
    Lord of Nightmare

    Both Ghost rider and Spawn are really powerful
    if they were to team up that would also be epic
    Oh yeah Terror just letting you know Todd Mcfarlane (creator of the Spawn series

    sorry for the long post

  18. nick August 18, 2009 at 3:15 pm -      #118

    Terror is correct Spawn can wipe out Galaxies and cleanse the universe also he defeated and tore apart Zera and her Avatar if Spawn was at his state when he ate the fruit from the tree of life he will destroy or eliminate Ghost rider but if he completely became the King of hell i do not know how the match will turn out or what outcome might reveal itself but Spawn can summon and command armies of hell and target Ghost rider so Terror has a excellent point although i do not know if Spawn can dominate Ghost rider in that state the reason being is because Ghost rider has certain tools and properties to survive and put up a good match if in the discussion of Spawn getting powers from the tree of life he can mop the floor with Ghost rider any day.

  19. AkumaTh August 18, 2009 at 3:32 pm -      #119

    @Terror: While not canon, Ghost Rider has defeated Galactus.
    www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hx8ob0BAkOs

    So I’m sure he could topple them if given the chance.
    “After attempting to urge the Hulk to stop, Ghost Rider engages the Hulk. Their battle is monitored by Doctor Strange and Mister Fantastic. Dr. Strange believes that the entity that supplies Ghost Rider’s mystic power is possibly capable of defeating the Hulk, stating that his powers are limitless, and only inhibited by the human side of the Ghost Rider, even going as far as to call his powers “godlike”. However, as it is Johnny Blaze, not the fully powered demon Zarathos who is engaging the Hulk, the Hulk easily defeats Ghost Rider. After Johnny is knocked out, Zarathos himself emerges and rides off because, as Dr. Strange says in the end of the issue, Ghost Rider protects only the innocent, which none of the Illuminati are.”

    Limitless. That pretty much matches Spawn at his best. The only reason you do not see it is because he has a limiter in Johnny Blaze. Spawn has a limiter as well; Al Simmons, who’s regret would make him not use said power for complete control. Who, might I add, was the reason he lost said powers.

    Besides, what about the Mother, the person who gave him this power. Isn’t she the top God then since she did give Spawn all this? I say that makes Ghost Rider’s creator the same tier since he acts like her in the Marvel Universe, except less direct. That’ll also put Spawn’s God and Satan in the same tier as the Mythological Gods of the Marvel Universe.

  21. nick August 18, 2009 at 4:02 pm -      #121

    In terms of logic and possibility probably Spawn may not be able to defeat Ghost rider in lower states of power due to the fact Ghost rider has the tools and the right properties and force to oppose and defeat Spawn also Ghost rider is a weapon of heaven and Spawn was drafted by hell.

  22. nick August 18, 2009 at 4:06 pm -      #122

    I agree with you Mata i do need punctuation on my recent and past comments, i do apologize for making these mistakes.

    “Ghost rider villains
    Zadkiel
    Lilith
    Mephisto
    Black Heart
    Lord of Nightmare
    God of the dead
    Lucifer

    Spawn villains
    Urizen
    Lucifer
    The Violator
    The Redeemer
    Angela both foe and ally
    The Freak
    The Curse”

    What I find particularly interesting about both these characters is that they have a similar set of antagonists.

    Both characters are manipulated and menaced by upper tier entities, whom they have defeated in the past, yet they are plagued by far lesser villains whom are a bit more popular with readers.

    I think that the stories loose a bit of flair when (taking Ghost Rider’s latest volume for example) the first arch was focused on him being tricked by Satan who then gets subsequently stomped and returned to hell. This epic arch then is followed by a lesser plot that has the rider deal with a cannibal, crazy nuns, and a zealot bully.

    Huh? Did I miss something?

    Isn’t a being capable of defeating a full-powered Satan supposed to defeat these lower tier characters with a snap of his fingers?

    The last volume was very similar with GR taking on upper demonic baddies as Mephisto, Blackheart, and Lilith on occasion, but the more common villains were more along the lines of Blackout, Deathwatch, Centurious, and Hellstrom.

    Spawn is no different. How are we supposed to conceptualize in our minds that this engineered weapon of hell can succeed over incredible powers as the Redeemer, Urizen, and the combined might of God and Lucifer when we see him constantly defeated by the Violator, The Curse, and the god-awful Freak?

    Do not even get me started on Overtkill or Cy-gor…

    GET A CLUE, WRITERS!!!

    I agree with you Mata i do need punctuation on my recent and past comments, i do apologize for making these mistakes. But how does the activation of punctuation policies work directly it does not only correct or punctuate my mistakes does it?

  25. Terror August 18, 2009 at 4:26 pm -      #125

    Akuma:

    You’re arguing semantics: limitless… As goofy as it sounds, there are varying degree’s of limitless in comics. Hulk is constantly referred to as having “limitless” strength and power, yet is he a universal threat? Nope… Not even close.

    Limitless power contained within a very limited vessel is quite the handicap. I mean heck, toss Hulk into space and for all his vaunted strength he is as helpless as a baby.

    See, Zarathos is powerful indeed, but is he Living Tribunal level of power? Nope, just a tiny dot in the grand scheme of things when compared to the LT and his master. Yet Spawn at his highest level of power could remake reality as he saw fit, and exceeded god and satan in power….

    So let’s make sure we put things into the proper context when talking about “limitless” power. Sentry, Hulk, and dozens of other beings who are peons when compared with the true celestial have had the same term applied to them.

    Also, for the comment above about Ghost Rider using the stare on Galactus? Uh, let’s not use non-canon, as it basically defeats the whole point of using the arguemnt: “Hey, this was retconned, and never really happened – But let’s look at what happened but didn’t…” Doesn’t make for a convincing argument.

    Not to mention, even if it WERE canon, Galactus is no where near the power of god. Not even close. Powerful and god-like yes, but a drop in the ocean when compared to god. So how would Ghost RIder, a STREET level being who rides around on a motorcycle, approach and force a stare upon a being who can snap his fingers, and make the whole galaxy vanish into thin air?

    See how ridiculous that sounds? Spawn had the power to make his body the size of the whole darn galaxy – a few hundred thousand light years across when it suited him… Sooooooo, how’s a flaming skull with a motorcycle going to stare down a being who’s body is the very fabric of reality he’s riding on? It’s just not even in the same league.

  26. nick August 18, 2009 at 5:45 pm -      #126

    @Mata if this is to correct me i thank you for that and if you mean by get a clue Writers in reference to me i do remind you that i do not want to begin another foolish argument as what occurred before.

  27. AkumaTh August 18, 2009 at 7:13 pm -      #127

    @Terror: Well arguing about that is rather pointless because Spawn currently does not have that power and the rules of this site (thank you Matapiojo for reminding me) state unless otherwise suggested, it’s the current incarnation.

    Currently, Spawn is back to his old self give or take, so Ghost Rider has him defeated. If he was that form, it would take more research since Spawn’s world plays on a different set then Marvel’s.

    Maybe suggest that version of Spawn Vs Ghost Rider for a future Duel.

    And Galactus survived the big bang, I’m pretty sure that gives him that diety status.

  28. nick August 18, 2009 at 8:21 pm -      #128

    Good and reasonable point

  29. Kenny C. August 18, 2009 at 9:30 pm -      #129

    I say we take the most powerful version of each character and debate that.

    As for my view… several mind-controled chain weapons are better than two!

  30. nick August 18, 2009 at 10:23 pm -      #130

    If it were to be Spawn at his true and most powerful potential i will have to decide Spawn due to the fact when he gain power from the tree of life he was able to perform a enormously huge feat, such as sending two opposing armies to their destinations which is where they began, and he was able to defeat Zera and her Avatar which is not a simple or weak task.

  31. AHEM August 18, 2009 at 10:46 pm -      #131

    Just because Spawn could match the God/Satan in his universe doesn’t necessary mean he could beat Ghost Rider if the true power of the Spirit of Vengeance was unleashed. The “God” in Spawn’s canon had limited power(otherwise it would have been impossible for Spawn to surpass Him or for there to even be a serious war against Him in the first place), which doesn’t fly in the Marvel Universe, where “God”(The One-Above-All) is actually Omnipotent, Omniscient, Omnipresent, etc. While Ghost Rider wouldn’t be able to face off against Spawn’s greatest form if he limits himself to a physical body, the presence of a being like Spawn being near him would tempt the Spirit of Vengeance inside him to unleash it’s full power(as happened after GR fought the Hulk), and thus be on the same playing field as Spawn at his strongest.

    But that’s only if we consider the strongest incarnation of Spawn. At his most basic level, GR stomps him. Weapon of Heaven > General of Hell.

  32. nick August 18, 2009 at 11:45 pm -      #132

    @Ahem: Interesting and logical assumption i have to agree and pass on this one but can clarify that Spawn is also as nearly capable of unleashing his true power and if you claim that when the Spirit of Vengeance unleashes its true power then i guess i would see it as a even match but you supported your reason and used it for your advantage which intrigues me. I guess both Spawn and Ghost Rider are on the same level based on this new and former argument i have to say they are equally matched and have the capability of exceeding their hidden potential which is most likely to put into terms and basic logical statements or theories. As what i can understand from my standpoint and opinion i can enlighten or shed some light that your comment is really helpful in supporting Ghost rider and gives true and original facts on how Ghost rider(or in this case the Spirit of Vengeance itself) has that same amount of potential to come to the same level of Spawn and i have to say you are correct and i give praise to your comment rather than just negatively criticize it, go completely against it or act like a persistent fool and keep bickering on how you are wrong.

  33. nick August 19, 2009 at 1:03 am -      #133

    I guess the new and really interesting new upcoming-ongoing series Haunt will be released or ready by October 7th(this comic book is created by the creator of the Spawn series Todd Mcfaralne and Robert Kirkman who created the Walking dead series and Invincibles series).Art\layouts will be handled by Ryan Ottley and Greg Capullo personally one of my favorite comic book artist who worked on many issues of Spawn in the past. The Spawn series will although still be in the works and new issues have appeared and are out soon in this recent situation Spawn 194 is already out and 195 will also make its appearance this month i cannot wait for the new upcoming issues of Spawn and the new and very interesting series called Haunt which will be really something worth reading.
    If anyone is a fan of the Darkness well here`s a new upcoming special issue!!

    1 – Haunt is yet another example of how much of a Hack McFarlane (like most of the Image founders) is. Tell me how Haunt is not a combination of Spawn and Spiderman…

    I think that this problem persists only through Rob Leifeld and him. Most of the others steered clear of their almost-copyright-infringement ways.

    The only possible redeeming factor that story will have is that Robert Kirkman is penning it. That man turns anything he touches to gold. The premise of the story sounds ok (much like Spawn’s did back in the day), but McFarlane’s influences are far too obvious still.
    ————————————————————–
    2 – “if this is to correct me i thank you for that and if you mean by get a clue Writers in reference to me i do remind you that i do not want to begin another foolish argument as what occurred before.”

    The post pertaining the respective villains of GR and Spawn (#124) was not directed at you in any way shape or form. I simply quoted your examples (which were correct) to put my observation into context.

    While his comment came afterwards (“So how would Ghost RIder, a STREET level being who rides around on a motorcycle, approach and force a stare upon a being who can snap his fingers, and make the whole galaxy vanish into thin air?”), I made that observation because I know Terror’s mentality towards the character is quite common, and in many ways preffered, across the entire fanbase.

    Many still think that GR is barely above street-level, and I was making a character comparison which I find interesting between these two beings.

    - Both are claimed to have boundless powers.

    - Both are rarely seen engaging beings above super-thug level, and most fans preffer it this way (I’m not in that group).

    - Both are constantly placed in the divine battlefield.

    - Both are severely handicapped by their humanities.

    See?

    Simple observations. Nothing more.
    ————————————————————–
    3 – I understand AHEM’s view on diety relativity. It is a point to consider, and its quite valid. However, stating that Marvel’s God is in fact TOAA is a bit innacurate. There has been nothing stated (to my knowledge) that they are in fact the same entity. It is indeed possible, but it cannot be used here as fact.

    Parting from that point, we can debate conjecture only so far. While we have only seen claims that GR’s power is limitles (by a reputable source), there has been no actual proof of a divine feat that places ‘ol Flamehead up in the Cosmic Tier. On the other hand, we did see Spawn re-rwitting the rules of reality.

    Arguing facts alone, I think its clear that Spawn’s peak is currently shown to be far greater. The strongest divine feat GR has done to date is conjure a Hellfire storm that purged an entire town from all demons without harming the human population.

    I happen to beleive that GR’s power is indeed “limitless”, placing him at the very least in Silver Surfer’s Tier, but there is a distinct difference between an informed opinion and actual fact. I hate to go against my home-boy, but its hard to argue against facts that are in black and white.
    ————————————————————–
    4 – Not sure what you meant by this:
    “As for my view… several mind-controled chain weapons are better than two!”

    Since I don’t know which you are trying to support there, I will leave that alone, but I would like to note that Blaze has projected multiple Hellfire-imbued mystical chains from both mouth and chest as a powerful attack.

    This power seems to be part of him projecting whatever weapon he wishes (though he has done only a handfull of examples to date). Here is a scythe he popped out of nowhere:
    ep.yimg.com/ca/I/wizarduniverse_2064_1591327088

    Flaming machete (same story arch):
    lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/wizarduniverse/ghost32.gif

    Ketch used a different approach to his weapons of choice, he would morph his one chain to have different properties. He would staraighten it to form a spear, split its links mid-swing (which mystically produced sharp edges) for a miltiple “shuriken” attack, and even used it as a staff to project a Hellfire scythe-blade.

    Both riders have displayed the power to lengthen or shorten the chain as needed, channel hellfire through it, and mystically controlled its actions from a distance or while statinary. While it is a bit speculatory, nothing points to all SoVs not sharing this sort of power over their crafted weapons.

    I’d say that in the chain department, the Spirit of Veangeance wins with flying colors.
    ————————————————————–
    5 – And finally, on this little nugget:
    “i give praise to your comment rather than just negatively criticize it, go completely against it or act like a persistent fool and keep bickering on how you are wrong.”

    ….subtle.

    Todd Mcfarlane is not a hack, as you claimed and bear in mind that Haunt is not a combination of Spawn and Spider man it may have similarities but once out you will know. But thanks for correcting me I give you gratitude for that, and if I misunderstood with the reference get a clue writers i do apologize. Haunt is totally different from Spider-man the reason being is because his powers may function in a way that looks like Spider-man`s web climbing and web using but Haunt is more supernatural and his properties are more as you can say brutal and complete tactic as for example Robert Kirkman did state that the story will be serious and the world be dark and gritty. I do however agree with you on Robert turning things into gold, because he knows how to make a good comic book and he knows how to get on time which intrigues me in many ways. I do not believe the philosophy that Todd mcfarlane completely got the idea of powers and character from Spider-man but i do agree that he might of borrowed the original design and created his own slick version of it.

    “Todd Mcfarlane is not a hack, as you claimed”

    Personal opinion is personal.

    Regardless, the similarities are too great for them to be ignored.

  39. Jwlynas August 20, 2009 at 11:00 am -      #139

    Haunt looks a little more like a blending of Spiderman and The Darkness than any Link to spawn… Mcfarlane not withstanding/

    But I’m sure the backstory will prove itself worthy of attention, Todds good at backstory.

  40. nick August 20, 2009 at 4:58 pm -      #140

    That`s partially true, he does look like a blending of the anti-hero and hero which is pretty good to hear and be aware of, I agree with you that the backstory should prove to be quite interesting and something to explore. Todd is excellent at creating a good and worthy backstory for his characters and integrates alot of depth into his creations which is something to praise and appreciate. The overall design of Haunt is quite creative and enjoying it shows that both Greg and Ottley put alot of nicely done art design for the character while Robert and Todd put alot of effort into character depth, backstory and progression of his creation.

    I am very excited i just purchased Ghost rider Heaven on Fire(1 of 6)
    Also purchased Spawn issue 194 and Darkness issue 76!!

  42. Matapiojo August 21, 2009 at 1:24 pm -      #142

    I’ve yet to go to the store this month. No doubt my copy is neatly packaged with all of my other subscriptions.

    I can’t wait to see GR duking it out with the new(?) Vengeance. It’ll be brutal.

  43. nick August 21, 2009 at 4:55 pm -      #143

    These comics or issues that i just have acquired are very exciting and cool to read

  44. Pondering Fool August 25, 2009 at 1:16 pm -      #144

    @Matapiojo

    Though off topic by a bit, imagine this. Three words: Spirits of Vengeance

    Marvel’s bad boy, and Spirit of Vengeance, Ghost Rider vs DC’s heavywieght, and Spirit of Vengeance, Spectre. Now that would be an awesome match

    - pondering fool

  45. Matapiojo August 25, 2009 at 5:05 pm -      #145

    I think that would be rather unfortunate for ‘ol Flamehead. Spectre would dominate that match.

    Neat fight, though. This sort of encounter could be the thing that forces the Rider to completely take over his human host’s body.

    Rather spectacular, really.

  46. TRUTH August 25, 2009 at 5:40 pm -      #146

    (New account this is Nick now known as TRUTH) this battle could be interesting and something to really to see and explore.

  47. Nick2 August 25, 2009 at 5:55 pm -      #147

    Ghost rider and Spawn are both have huge and really successful franchises

  48. Nick2 August 25, 2009 at 5:56 pm -      #148

    @TRUTH if that was to make fun of my me in my absence then you are foolishly mistaken

  49. TRUTH August 25, 2009 at 6:09 pm -      #149

    @Nick2:I dont know who do you think you are but in reference to you was correct i am going to see if you improved your knowledge and if you have lighten up a bit so do not think of it as a little mind game but a test, because i have read all your comments and got to say you base things on facts and logic but you integrate personal opinions and favoritism as well, making it quite a interesting theory or point.

  50. Nick2 August 25, 2009 at 6:15 pm -      #150

    Interesting TRUTH you were able to analyze my comments but you do not know on how to clarify things that i have successfully explained so you should not even go there!

  51. Nick2 August 25, 2009 at 6:19 pm -      #151

    Well i gotta to state that you have actually improved but you do not have a CLUE!! On how to explain yourself in some areas so if I were you i will get my facts double checked!!

  52. TRUTH August 25, 2009 at 6:28 pm -      #152

    @Nick2: I give praise to you for me improving but there was no need to state that and i do not have to get my facts double checked you know WHY? Because i basically understand on what i am trying to explain, you on the other hand sometimes do not so if i were you i would not go straight to judgment unless if necessary!

  53. Nick2 August 25, 2009 at 6:40 pm -      #153

    @TRUTH:I am not foolish and can realize that you are the one who began this and have to say you are clearly wrong and I do recall that i did say you have to get your facts double checked and i have meant that for a good reason which you cannot notice so do not even bother questioning me when you do not a basic understanding!!

  54. TRUTH August 26, 2009 at 1:40 am -      #154

    I might have began it for a good reason and have to clarify you have no right to judge me and i have the complete right to question you in many ways.

  55. Nick2 August 26, 2009 at 1:50 am -      #155

    Interesting point TRUTH but i do not recall on me judging you and you i do not think you should question me and you do not have any true facts that i am judging you,you are utilizing your personal opinion.

  56. Matapiojo August 26, 2009 at 8:36 am -      #156

    You two somehow make me think of the classic Attari game, Pong….

  57. Nick2 August 26, 2009 at 4:28 pm -      #157

    @Mata:Your absolutely right and we are also basically competing thanks to TRUTH challenging me but he made a awful and a unacknowledged mistake which leads to his complete downfall!

  58. TRUTH August 26, 2009 at 4:32 pm -      #158

    I also agree with Mata and got to say i would not embrace a complete downfall it is not on my schedule and have to say Nick2 lets see if you can keep up because I think you are succumbing to your downfall which is easy to point out in many reasonable ways thought possible!

  59. TRUTH August 26, 2009 at 4:34 pm -      #159

    @Nick2 was that in reference to my last comment because i think its pathetic but i agree with Mata as well so do not think you are the only one who can seek reason

  60. TRUTH August 26, 2009 at 4:39 pm -      #160

    You know neither of us have the upper hand but, I do like to personally clarify that I am going to succeed in the near future because my comments are excellently standing on their own,and also make great use of reason and truth so I may justify that you are challenging but i do think you are the one who is succumbing to your own silly downfall!!

    Interesting you were able to connect your arguments and transform them into something bigger and something really accommodating which is interesting to see but for you I can say that you are pathetic in some of your recent comments and they do not relate to me. If you think of it in different scenarios so if I were you I will be questioning myself on what foolish attempt i made earlier so i can stand up back on my feet and try not to look like a insolent fool which you proved to be!!

  63. Nick2 August 26, 2009 at 4:45 pm -      #163

    This comment just posted is for TRUTH

  64. TRUTH August 26, 2009 at 4:47 pm -      #164

    @Nick2: Interesting comment even though i think you are the one who needs to get back on their feet because my comments do not need to relate you because they are something that is established unlike you who pretends to be that when he has the time!

  65. Nick2 August 26, 2009 at 4:50 pm -      #165

    @TRUTH: You are carelessly lost, so if I were you i will come back when your I would come back when you are ready to post something acknowledging that can stand on its own without me to tell you to fix it!!

  66. TRUTH August 26, 2009 at 4:53 pm -      #166

    @Nick2: Unlike you I can analyze arguments and understandings before jumping in there and acting like a inexplicable idiot!

  67. TRUTH August 26, 2009 at 4:57 pm -      #167

    @TRUTH: You are making yourself the idiot and making a fool of yourself the reason being is because that was DAMN ROB`S job the one who got into arguments with Mata and barely stand up on his feet unlike Mata who could always make decent comments which form together to make a huge and welcoming extraordinary DEBATE!! So do not go there with me you are the fool because unlike Rob i do not rush or foolishly respond with careless comments that have no need whatsoever to be there.

  68. Nick2 August 26, 2009 at 4:59 pm -      #168

    So TRUTH you carelessly took my past response and predicted what i was going to say you are pathetic

  69. TRUTH August 26, 2009 at 5:04 pm -      #169

    @Nick2: I did not predict this i just posted something randomly which is hugely possible to be the comment that you were going to post because i analyzed your comments properly and studied your comebacks so this is not really of a surprise but you have to agree with this i do formerly agree (that it is Rob`s job) to knowingly jump back and use pathetic comments that do not target a way to create a reasonable debate with strong information and a ton of source integrated material which should be used to counter or comeback.

  70. Nick2 August 26, 2009 at 5:09 pm -      #170

    @TRUTH:Interesting I guess that is something to really agree with and i have to clarify that you have finally posted something interesting and something to actually read carefully but analyzing comments and studying the future response is not only the way to counter, my way is so gather basic information and source material and create something pretty neat and tough to counter i also use my personal opinion to prove that i am not ignorant on backing my up facts and it also proves on how i am truly capable of pulling something off.

  71. TRUTH August 26, 2009 at 10:38 pm -      #171

    @Nick2: You made a valuable and well formed together statement or response but i do have the right to justify that the way i counter is something to really acknowledge and be proud of due to the fact it makes a excellent explanation and gives a way to express my facts rather than just being a cocky fool!!

  75. TRUTH August 26, 2009 at 11:45 pm -      #175

    @Nick2: Thanks for letting me know but I think it was too eager of you to confirm that anyway I cannot wait for the first issue of Haunt to release and that scheduled date is October 7th this year, this comic looks pretty neat and original with a interesting story twist and plot. Greg Capullo should do excellent with the breakdowns and comic layouts and thanks to the skilled penciling detail of Ryan Ottley this comic will be able to standout and prove to be mind blowing as it looks from my perspective, and Todd will be great on inking the covers for the issues although his inks are not mind blowing or astounding their quite original and unique, also a great addition to the team for this new ongoing comic book series is Robert Kirkman the original creator of the popular and hyped series Invincibles and Walking Dead. Who will specifically assist in the storytelling and progression of the characters which is something to be excited about here comes a new interesting COMIC BOOK!!

  76. Nick2 August 26, 2009 at 11:55 pm -      #176

    @TRUTH: I totally agree with on the Haunt comic book it looks remarkable and mind blowing and thanks to the huge and friendly collaboration of Todd Mcfarlane, Robert Kirkman, Greg Capullo, Ryan Ottley, this comic book should be a 78% guaranteed successful and hugely noticed comic series. The main thing that hypes me and brings my attention the most is the collaboration of a excellent and well known comic book team of artists and writers who should bring something unique also, remarkable to the table!! Even the story seems pretty decent and well formed to explore, it seems that some of the story was told by Todd and Robert who informed CBR and others that the story begins with a pair of brothers who despise each other one a priest and the other a secret agent who has been murdered and haunts the other and finally both unite and form a supernatural entity of some kind and have to solve mysteries and fight dark forces who prove a major threat to the world!

  77. TRUTH August 27, 2009 at 12:03 am -      #177

    @Nick2: Your absolutely right about the upcoming Haunt comic and i have to say we share something in common despite strong arguments, the thing we share in common is the excitement of this comic book, not to be of a annoyance to you or be nosy but i was curiously wondering on what goal that you want to achieve in life i guess mine for now is to be a mechanic or to even accomplish my dream of being professional actor.

  78. TRUTH August 27, 2009 at 12:13 am -      #178

    @TRUTH: I do not why you let your curiosity overwhelm you but I guess I can accept this question and i have actually three major goals that I want to accomplish in life with strong effort and motivation the first being is a professional comic book creator, writer or even illustrator for a company or my own company . Second being is to be a game designer for a gaming or electronic company such as Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo in addition or conjunction with my game designing dream I would also love to own or form a major and huge video game studios where I publish and develop my own games but make sure they have good quality and are very enjoying to play! Last but not least is being a actor something that you want to accomplish as I can recall.

  80. @TRUTH August 27, 2009 at 12:20 am -      #180

    @Nick2: I only gave you my email remember to only send messages that you do not want to post but i guess you changed your mind and yes that was in reference to your email remember your still being tested and i have to say i hope you accomplish your dreams.

  81. Nick2 August 27, 2009 at 12:24 am -      #181

    Well thank you that was very kind of you and I am well aware of the continuing test but let me clarify that i did not want to really talk about my future goals in this forum and you go ahead and post the message i sent you here, well its not a big deal but i will delete you from my email this was only for this occurrence only anyway i am sure you know of that.

  82. TRUTH August 27, 2009 at 12:25 am -      #182

    Uhmmm I am so confused now…….I remember posting my suggestion, and then came back a few days later. What the heck are TRUTH and Nick 2 talking about? I don’t really see any relevance, but maybe that is because I am very ignorant at night……..

  84. TRUTH August 27, 2009 at 2:54 pm -      #184

    @Pondering Fool: I tested Nick2 and we were competing, which is no more unless the circumstances change, but to let you firmly know we were discussing about things on different terms and I rarely know who you are even if i analyzed your comments and checked them I do not think your ignorant at all depending maby on your mood or the time of day as suggested earlier by you but you seem very clever and understandable in your comments I vaguely apologize if i got somethings wrong or misunderstood but I am making this very clear on what you were trying to question Mata on so you could understand what the discussion about me and Nick2 is about or points to it was confusingly like a competition.

  85. Pondering Fool August 27, 2009 at 3:30 pm -      #185

    @ TRUTH

    Thanks mate for the explanation and the complements. Glad your, competition is over (unless you wanted it to continue, than, i am sorry for your loss). And welcome to BankGambling and hope you have a good time on this awesome sight.

    @Pondering Fool: Well thank you I greatly appreciate that and I am excited to be here also, meet you guys because I have to state or clarify that it has been a welcoming and a wonderful experience so far and I do not doubt that this excitement will grow, you are correct that the competition is indeed over and dealt with. I am clearly satisfied for your thanks and gratitude and can say that I have come to several understandings which are neither negative or confusing but a reasonable and well thought out understanding which is something to be proud for!

  87. Nick2 August 27, 2009 at 5:27 pm -      #187

    I Agree and confirm that test is over and I cannot wait to purchase Spawn 195 and the following Ghost rider issues for the new miniseries which is something to keep on track. But here comes a new hero or supposedly a new anti-hero who will deliver a lot of hype and generosity and that is Haunt, its just so unique and something worth getting, also getting hyped for!

  88. Nick2 August 27, 2009 at 5:44 pm -      #188

    @TRUTH: You know what of been another test or maby not too much of a test but a debating comparison ,I do say that I think we should compare the Ghost rider and Spawn villains not for a huge discussion but just for excitement to get to know the characters a little bit more.

  89. TRUTH August 27, 2009 at 5:46 pm -      #189

    @Nick2: It could be exciting but it depends on the situation.

  90. Nick2 August 27, 2009 at 7:26 pm -      #190

    I will unknowingly start by stating that i think a enjoyable battle would of been Zadkiel vs. Mammon two huge antagonist of both anti-heroes and have hugely similar goals if you can agree.

  91. TRUTH August 27, 2009 at 7:39 pm -      #191

    @Nick2: I simply do not who would win but I clarify that I think it would be a draw due to the fact I do not want to judge on who becomes the winner and I have to true facts on which one`s power is greater than the other.That being said the battle is not completely decided or determined.

  92. TRUTH September 2, 2009 at 8:03 pm -      #192

    Disney has acquired Marvel for the price tag of $4 billion which I think is not so bad if you think of the positives which i will not showcase today.

    It was a tad random, but besides that, I think Mata pretty much defeated the opposition. Glad to see Ghost Rider getting the BankGambling award. Really want to see Ghost-Rider vs Spectre (DC spirit of Vengeance). Guess I am off to the battle request page.

    spawn and ghost rider are very much equal in means on a hell based character
    in a case where ghost rider tries to use the penance stance on spawn wont work cause i believe the basis of the penance stance was burning guilt of conscience of the soul amplified by the heat of hell and which just like ghost rider spawn has no soul
