History Edit

Years ago, motorcycle stunt rider Crash Simpson scheduled a venue at the Garden where he was going to break the World Record for long-distance cycle jumping. Simpson had recently beaten advanced stages of cancer and felt that he could accomplish anything. What he didn't realize, was that his foster son Johnny Blaze, had sold his soul to Satan to cure Simpson's illness. Although the Devil saved Crash from terminal illness, he was not obligated to make sure that he stayed alive. Crash attempted the stunt, but couldn't bridge the distance and was killed. Johnny Blaze, in a fit of anguish and fury, hopped onto his own motorcycle, and executed the maneuver, thus breaking the World Record. Blaze's life would soon change forever, as he paid the price for his bargain with the devil by becoming the Ghost Rider. [3]

In the late 1990s, a giant mutated reptile began rampaging all throughout New York City. Police and military combated the menace, which the media named "Godzilla", and believed to have destroyed it by nuking it in New York Harbor. That wily 'Zilla managed to sneak away however, and burrowed itself underneath Madison Square Garden. A nebbish scientist named Niko Tatapoulos, his on-again/off-again girlfriend Audrey Timmonds, a French secret agent named Philippe Roaché, and cameraman Victor "Animal" Palotti found themselves inside the abandoned Madison Square Garden, where they found dozens of 'Zilla eggs. Unfortunately for them, they were trapped inside as the eggs began to hatch. The reptiles grew to human size at an extraordinary rate and began chasing them all throughout the building. They all managed to escape, though several of Philippe's agents became monster chow. As they left the Garden, papa Godzilla made his presence known, and burst through the roof of the arena. [4]
