First Appearance: Iron Man and Power Pack#1
Powers/Abilities: The Ghost is a brilliant
inventor and engineer, as well as a master of espionage, but is
distrustful of corporate machinations. He relies on a technological
suit that has phasing circuitry, allowing him to pass through walls, as
well as become undetectable to many forms of scanners, including
becoming invisible to the naked eye. These are activated by mental
commands. However, the special suit cannot maintain both forms
simultaneously and utilizing these powers seems to drain energy as he
uses them only in short bursts.
Weight: 175 lbs.
(Iron Man and Power Pack#1 (fb) - BTS) - The Ghost had developed a reputation as a master of corporate espionage and robbery, with multiple attacks on Stark Industries' base in New York using a technology-based phasing and invisibility suit. This resulted in Stark upgrading security to include disruptors. Meanwhile, Puppet Master employed the Ghost to steal Stark's cyber-neural interface chip.
(Iron Man and Power Pack#1 (fb)) - The Ghost
infiltrated Stark Tower in invisibility mode, bumping into Pepper
Potts, before arriving at a robotics research lab. Lifting the
interface chip triggered the security alarm, which identified him
immediately and lockdown was initiated with disruptors breaking his
suit's phasing circuitry. Seeing the inert Ultimo robot in the
same lab, he reactivated it as a distraction. The Ghost escaped in
invisibility mode as the giant robot smashed an outer wall and rampaged.
(Iron Man and Power Pack#1) - The Ghost decloaked
from his invisible form on a rooftop to pass the prized interface chip
to the nefarious Puppet Master, who could control people using
specially crafted miniature dolls. Instead of paying for the chip with
money, the Puppet Master gave the Ghost his own doll, effectively
ensuring his freedom. Instead, this enraged the Ghost, who demanded
money and he punched the Puppet Master, who retaliated by snapping the doll in half. The
Ghost screamed in agony.
Earth-616 version created by David Michelinie (writer), Bob Layton (pencils & inks). Earth-5631 version adapted by Marc
Sumerak (writer), Marcelo DiChiara (pencils & inks).
His physical stats are taken from his Earth-616 counterpart due to their distinct likenesses.
I'm guessing breaking the doll in half effectively
broke the Ghost's back, or induced such pain, but this is a
kids-oriented book, so we won't go there.
