MARVEL TEAM UP #58 (1977)

Spider-Man and Ghost Rider fight The Trapster, and Ghost Rider reveals a new power set–heat tornado–that I’m pretty sure he never used again.

Also, he shows a lot of concern for his buddy Spider-Man…

…Who is being way too easily defeated by Trapster.

Also, I don’t know if people know this, but Ghost Rider does impressions.  Here he is pretending to be Popeye.

Ghost Rider is what he is, and what he is isn’t very nice…

This is another use of Ghost Rider’s flame we haven’t seen before–it makes Trapster overcome with dispair.  This feels a little similar to the Penance Stare that the Danny Ketch Ghost Rider will have in 20 years.
