THE GHOST RIDER (1950)
The very first Ghost Rider series was actually not produced by Marvel Comics, but was instead created for Magazine Enterprises in 1949!  Rex Fury was a character created by Raymond Krank, Gardner Fox, and Dick Ayers in the pages of "Tim Holt Magazine", and the character eventually evolved into the white-garbed original Ghost Rider.  Rex Fury rode as the Ghost Rider for several years until the Comics Code Authority forced Magazine Enterprises to close its doors, eventually allowing the character to fall into the public domain.  Marvel Comics would take the character's design and creator, Dick Ayers, for their own version of the Ghost Rider in 1947, changing the character's identity to Carter Slade.
