level of superhuman durability, allowing him to survive being choked
out by Ghost Rider's chain. Given his large size, he presumably had
superhuman strength as well and was able to hurl Ghost Rider around
with little effort. Choam was also completely immune to Ghost Rider's
Penance Stare due to his nature as a reanimated corpse.

(Ghost Rider III#69) - When Ghost Rider disrupted Anton Hellgate's
operations, Hellgate ordered his men to retrieve Choam. Shortly after
meeting with Anton Hellgate, Choam was ordered to find and kill the
Ghost Rider. When Choam asked where to find Ghost Rider, Hellgate
assured Choam that he would point Choam in the right direction and all
Choam had to do was spill blood onto the streets and Ghost Rider would
come to him. Agreeing to Hellgate's orders, Choam went to Cypress
Hills, Brooklyn, where he rampaged until Ghost Rider showed up as
predicted. Choam commented that Ghost Rider had arrived sooner than
expected and that he had wanted to kill a few dozen people before Ghost
Rider got there. When Ghost Rider asked if Choam would kill just to
attract the attention of Ghost Rider, Choam replied that he killed
because he enjoyed it. Ghost Rider immediately subjected Choam to his
Penance Stare but Choam proved unfazed, prompting Ghost Rider to wrap
his chains around Choam's neck and strangle him. At first distraught at
having seemingly killed Choam, Ghost Rider was shocked when Choam got
back up and punched Ghost Rider in the face. Determined to defeat
Choam, Ghost Rider tied Choam up in chains and left him for police
