(Ghost Rider/Blaze: Spirits of Vengeance#22 (fb) - BTS) - Children Inc. had established itself as a charity that helped underprivileged children, advertising on TV and scoring donations, including from Johnny Blaze and Roxanne. However, the charitable facade covered international child trafficking and abuse that was eventually uncovered by Cardiac. Meanwhile, the kidnapped Timmy Woods, a young friend of Blaze's, ended up a captive there.

(Ghost Rider/Blaze: Spirits of Vengeance#22) - Blaze sought to help Miranda Woods find her son. Clara Menninger had psychic visions that directed Blaze to Children Inc. There he demanded to speak to someone senior. Cardiac's sudden attack brought out the organization's well-armed security personnel, who fired on Cardiac and demanded Blaze leave. Blaze enlisted the aid of Badilino, who transformed into Vengeance when the two arrived at Children Inc's headquarters. Cardiac's continued destruction led the two to the sub-basements, where they encountered and fought "killer robots." Cardiac, Vengeance and Blaze destroyed them, with Cardiac then showing the two the locked rooms holding children. Blaze and Vengeance evacuated the children, including Timmy, while Cardiac completely demolished the building into fiery rubble.

Blaze initially refers to the organization as "Child Inc." even though he's walking through the foyer to the giant plaque that says "Children Inc."
