During a time when Mephisto was manipulating Johnny Blaze, aka Ghost Rider, into believing he was the biblical Satan, he also either posed as, or changed one of his demons into a mysterious savior who resembled Jesus.[1]

After foiling a plot by "Satan" to take John's soul, this entity told John he was "A Friend"[1], and appeared in his life a number of times. While John believed he may have been Jesus, it was later revealed by "Satan" that it was yet another manipulation on his part to try and steal Blaze's soul[2].


The full extent of this entities abilities have never been revealed, as it was a manipulation created by Mephisto, if the "friend" had any powers to begin with are questionable at best. He appeared to be able to repel Satan and presumably perform miracles.

The Friend was never identified as God or Jesus Christ in the comics, although the resemblance was intentional and obvious. Behind-the-scenes concerns from editorial altered Tony Isabella's script so that the Friend was explicitly called out as a phony by the Devil in later issues. [3]
