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.

Eyes: Blue
Hair: Brown

History:

(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.

 

 

 

 

Comments: 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.
