The edition, written by Ed Brisson with art by Juan Frigeri and paints by Jason Keith, begins with Ghost Rider Mephisto roaming the streets of New York - just as the King in Black comes to mind. Ghost Rider now has two fights on hand: Lilith and Knull's symbiote dragon. Knowing that Ghost Rider will be constantly torn between the ruler of Hell and a hero, his allies, including his brother Danny Ketch, convince him to let Mephisto return to rule Hell. Her logic is that Mephisto is a known great and therefore easier to work with, while Lilith is fierce and unpredictable, which makes her more difficult to defeat.

While Ghost Rider and the logic of its allies may seem reasonable, the most recent revelations are across the Marvel Universe, especially in avengerto question this step. Marvel has made it clear that Mephisto is up to something. He was directly responsible for resuscitating Agent Phil Coulson, corrupting him, and then blaming him for the hyper-nationalist Squadron Supreme of America, a team that is a direct rival of the Avengers. Mephisto's influence on Coulson also gives him unprecedented access to the American government and the American military, which he could then use for the Avengers. Whatever he is up to, it was bad enough getting Konshu, Moon Knight's god-like benefactor, into action as well - a move that also led to an attack on the Avengers. It is clear that Mephisto has an ax to grind with the most powerful heroes on earth, and now Ghost Rider has enabled him to carry out his plans.
