MARVEL TALES #255 (1991)

I like this short story a lot. Trapster, in a mental ward, sees visions of The Spirit of Vengeance after having been burned by Johnny Blaze. He starts out catatonic but ends up being so threatened by the visions that he believes Ghost Rider is actually coming for him in the hospital, and so he excapes and flees.

We the readers are led to believe that being touched by hellfire has driven him insane, but in the last panel we see that Wizard was using a “memory inducer” to get Trapster to escape.

Excellent use of an 8-page backup.
