Robbie Reyes is a mechanic who has the ability to transform into Ghost Rider after being possessed by the Spirit of Vengeance. As the primary caregiver for his disabled younger brother, Robbie hadn't encountered many other Super Heroes nor spent much time away from home prior to joining the Midnight Suns. Today, we're excited to share a high-octane introduction to Robbie and a look at how he was recruited to the team in our latest Marvel's Midnight Suns Prequel Short.
"Robbie Reyes of Midnight Suns is very similar to the Robbie you know from the comics," explains Firaxis Games Narrative Lead Zach Bush, who authored this Prequel Short. "He's raising Gabe, his younger brother, and after the struggles he's been through to find some stability, he doesn't want to throw it away for someone else's fight."
Hell on Wheels is the third of five Prequel Shorts that explain how and why the Midnight Suns heroes have united to oppose Lilith. If you missed them, be sure to check out the first Prequel Short, in which we learned of tragic events surrounding the birth of the Hunter; and the second, which shows how Scarlet Witch was able to recruit Magik to the Midnight Suns below. And be on the lookout for next week's Prequel Short featuring Blade: The Daywalker.
