Johnny Blaze gives up his soul to keep his father alive, but the plan goes astray and he was deceived by the devil. After Johnny’s father, Barton Blaze, dies in a motorcycle accident despite the trade that was made. Johnny Blaze takes off from his small town and disappears from the lives of everyone he once knew. He leaves Roxanne, his long-term girlfriend, to disappear into nothingness. Johnny’s fear is that his stolen soul will come back to haunt him and those he loves if he doesn’t disappear. Sometime later Johnny emerges as a man on a mission to avenge his father’s death through motorcycle racing. He is known for high-flying, extremely dangerous stunts that no other rider is willing to try. That’s the plot that fuels “Ghost Rider” as Johnny Blaze meets back up with his former lover and then the man who stole his soul for an interesting proposition that will surely change the course of history forever. Mephistopheles, meets back up with Johnny and offers to release his contract. He’ll happily give Johnny back his soul if he becomes the Ghost Rider. The goal is to defeat Mephistopheles’ son who wishes to create a hell on earth or die trying. Mephistopheles’ son, Blackheart, is attempting to take on human form by processing the souls of 1000 humans. If he succeeds in his plan a hell on earth will be created and there is no one that could stop it once it begins. Johnny accepts the offer, but there is so much more to the story than he ever realized. Johnny’s girlfriend Roxanne, a news reporter, gets mixed up in the action and Ghost Rider proves harder to tame than Johnny could have ever imagined. The film is an adaptation of the comic book series presented by Marvel. The store remains largely untouched, although modernization was created to put the film in the current time period. Johnny’s time spent in Eastern Europe; where he disappeared to after his father’s passing, for example, was never mentioned in the series. Roxanne plays are much larger role in the film than the comic book series had originally planned for. The production studio insisted on a love-story angle to complete the plot of this film.
