Satan's Servants
Angels from Hell!
The servants of Satan are a gang of satanist motorcyclists who ride the night looking to cause trouble to anyone who crosses their path. They were humanly very muscular and very skilled with their motorcycles. They were originally lead by Curly Samuels (Crash Simpson) who was working for Satan and ordered to capture Johnny Blaze. Satan’s Servants were lead to the Ghost Rider to cause him trouble, but were intimidated by his powers. They tried a second attempt by trying to capture his love interest Roxanne Simpson first, but were defeated once again when the Ghost Rider appeared and were taken by the police.

However, in the following issue Johnny Blaze finds the gang members back in their hideout and not in jail. After all that chaos they created at Madison Square Garden motorcycle show.

“Hey, dig the crazy glowing helmet! What’s he doin’… Trying to win a beauty contest?!”
