Real Name: Unrevealed - probably Johnny Blaze

Identity/Class: Extradimensional (Earth-8377) human possessed by a demon  

Occupation: Unrevealed 

Group Membership: None

Affiliations: His unidentified ghost steed

Enemies: Unrevealed 

Known Relatives: None 

Aliases: None

Base of Operations: Unrevealed

First Appearance: The Daredevils#8 (August, 1983)

Powers/Abilities: Ghost Rider presumably possesses the same powers as his Earth-616 counterpart, except that instead of riding a flaming motorbike, his chosen form of transport is a flying ghost of the "Casper" variety.

History: Instead of riding burning motorcycles, Ghost Rider literally rode a ghost that resembled a bedsheet with a face on it. As he raced across the night sky, he seemed somewhat happier than his Earth-616 counterpart, his skull-face apparently grinning rather than grimacing.

Comments: Created by Lew Stringer. A one-panel What If?-type joke, there's very little known about this version of Ghost Rider; given his costume, he's presumably Johnny Blaze, maybe with similar origin and powers except for his choice of steed and demeanour.

For the sake of simplicity, we're assuming that all Lew Stringer's one-shot What If?s share a single reality, Earth-8337 (the Stringerverse or Marvel Lewniverse, if you will), excepting any cases where he might reuse a character and depict them in a fashion contradictory to their prior usage.
