History: (Ghost Rider III#86) - Kirk Eden and his co-worker Jim Palmetto of Damage Control arrived at 321 Boerum Avenue in the Bronx to investigate the damage caused by a battle involving Ghost Rider several months earlier. Grumbling at the damage caused by superheroes, Kirk reminded Jim that, despite them being behind schedule, they had multiple complaints about Ghost Rider and had to file a full report on the damage caused by him. Looking for the superintendent of the apartment complex on Boerum Avenue, Kirk Eden showed his Damage Control employee badge to Carlie Colon, who admitted that he could get any badge like that at the local bodega. When Jim whined about the Bronx, Carlie grabbed him and got angry due to it taking Damage Control three months to get to their case. Kirk quickly calmed Carlie down and apologized for Jim, prompting Carlie to also apologize and claim that she had been moody ever since the incident. Her mention of the incident prompted Kirk to begin interviewing Carlie about the incident, asking if it involved Sentinels in any way since the government had funds set aside for Sentinel damage. He then began asking her questions about Ghost Rider and Carlie informed Kirk that Ghost Rider only showed up to help people. When Kirk asked if Carlie had seen Ghost Rider in person, she replied that she hadn't up close and directed the Damage Control agents to Little Luz's Bronx Girl Bodega. When they arrived on the scene, Jim once again complained and said that their job only involved evaluated the damage site. Kirk explained that if their was some force preying on the neighborhood, it was their job to make sure steps were taken to prevent it and told Jim to go interview the nearby children while he investigated the Bodega. Showing his ID badge inside and asking if Luz Santos could answer some questions for him, Kirk Eden was once again told that anyone could get a badge like his. When Kirk asked Luz about Ghost Rider, she claimed he was the Devil and was after her pure, virginal flesh. A skeptical Kirk was then informed by Juanito Carlito Candido that there was someone who had experienced Ghost Rider up close and directed Kirk to visit the former criminal Toother. Finding Toother at St. Jude's Church, Kirk removed his hat and went inside to interview Toother. Toother managed to tell Kirk that Ghost Rider had cleansed the sin out of him before walking away, chanting "I will sin no more" and begging forgiveness. After meeting with Toother, Kirk Eden became convinced that Ghost Rider was a true threat to the neighborhood and was soon distracted when the apartment complex caught on fire. Panicking, Kirk watched on as Jim phoned an emergency and they both witnessed Ghost Rider appear and rescue children trapped inside. Having witnessed Ghost Rider's heroics, Kirk told Jim that before they did anything against Ghost Rider, he would need to have a closer look.
