Marvel Comics will reveal the origin of the very first Ghost Rider in the pages of Avengers #7, featuring a flashback tale to 1,000,000 BC from writer Jason Aaron and artist Sara Pichelli.
The prehistoric, woolly mammoth-riding Ghost Rider debuted in 2017’s Marvel Legacy #1 as a member of the 1,000,000 BC Avengers, alongside Odin and new takes on the Black Panther, Iron Fist, Phoenix, Starbrand and Agamotto.

“Fans have been intrigued by the Avengers of 1,000,000 BC and the story they represent since Jason first introduced them in the Marvel Legacy one-shot last year,” Executive Editor Tom Brevoort said in a press release. “So this issue represents the first peeling back of the onion to reveal a little bit more about who they are and what they’re about. And it’s a cool and affecting story all by itself, even if you know nothing about the Avengers of 1MBC.”
The members of the 1,000,000 BC Avengers will be featured in one-and-done stories illustrated by guest-artists, which will help bridge the gap between story arcs and offer more background on the superheroes that make up the prehistoric version of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
