Abilities: The Ghost has a passion for building electrically-based devices. His self-designed battle suit permits him to become intangible or invisible at will, although he can't do both at the same time. When intangible, he is visible but transparent; glimpses of him in this mode is what started rumors of a "ghost" that haunted troubled industrial plants. In addition, he possesses a number of electricity-driven weapons resembling guns that fire concentrated bursts of energy.
Favorite quote: "You're ruthless, Spymaster! I respect that!" (Iron Man 220, when Spymaster tries to shoot through a hostage to get to the Ghost. The Ghost's respect, however, did not extend to showing Spymaster any mercy...)
Heroes He Keeps Running Into: As an industrial saboteur, the Ghost is the natural enemy of Iron Man, the personal bodyguard of industrialist Tony Stark.
People Who Think He's Not So Bad: Although he is hired on a regular basis by less-than-scrupulous industrial agents, the Ghost is known as a loose cannon. He doesn't take orders well and has refused to terminate assignments even when full payment was offered. No one trusts him. No one should!
Most Despicable Act: The murder of fellow baddie Spymaster, followed by the murder of one of Stark's security guards. Spymaster's death was especially gruesome and devious. The Ghost gave Spymaster one of his own intangibility circuits under the guise of saving him, but removed the circuit when Spymaster was half-way through a wall. Chilling, utterly chilling.

"You take the credit; I take the cash. That's the way creativity works!"
"I don't take checks."
