The most unlucky little girl in the world.

Let's just say you're a little girl. And say you are alone and in danger.

And say that the only super hero around to save you...is Ghost Rider.

Like, seriously, how terrified would you be if you saw this lunging at you?

I'm trying to think of a more horrifying hero to encounter as a child and no one else springs to mind. I guess the Hulk would be kind of terrifying but he isn't a man whose skull is constantly ablaze. Oh, Morbius the Living Vampire, yup that would have made me cry. He cannot close his mouth and he's got those horrible, horrible eyes. Maybe the MODOKed up version of the Avengers too. I'll have to pull out the Handbook and see if anyone else qualifies.

Well...she's going to need a fresh diaper, that's for certain.

If anyone was going to save me from a skull-headed biker, though, I'd want it to be a second skull-headed biker whose head was on fire.

I'm pretty sure she wouldn't understand she was being saved though. All she knows is that this dude's head is on fire and he's leaping at her. I'd take Captain America any day.

Hell, I'd take Bizarro.

... who should be rated as a Super-Hunk.

It depends. I don't know how they usually draw Ghost Rider's speech balloons: is he saying this out loud?
