superhuman powers but was presumably a skilled reporter (although her

History: (Ghost Rider VI#8 - BTS) - Melanie Brockton reported on the recent rash of Sleepy Hollow, Illinois murders.
(Ghost Rider VI#9 - BTS) - Still covering the
murder story for the news, Melanie Brockton visited Sheriff Harry
O'Connor, who warned her that the Sleepy Hollow curfew applied to
everyone in town. Brockton quickly asked O'Connor how the curfew would
affect the town's Halloween trick-or-treating festivities and O'Connor
sternly asked if Brockton was serious. He then reminded her that until
the murderer was caught, the curfew would stand, regardless of
festivities, warning the public that there would be serious
consequences for anyone seen out after curfew.
