This summer, Marvel Studios is releasing Ant-Man and the Wasp, the first MCU film to be released following the June main hit-movie Avengers: Infinity War

Do not forget, Ant-Man and the Wasp hits theaters on July 6. Keep on reading Nexter.org to know more about Ghost, a new cool villain from Marvel.

Ghost truly is a mysterious character

Ghost is a Marvel Comics villain, created by writer David Michelinie and artist Bob Layton in 1987 for the pages of Iron Man #219. Ghost is a skilled programmer and engineer who, disenchanted with corporate greed and corruption, builds a suit that makes him invisible, intangible, and stealthy in order to take down large corporations and wreak havoc. What’s clear is that Ghost has infused his body with a unique microchip technology that he invented, and now has a “cyberpathic” connection to computer networks, making him a world class hacker.

However, even the character’s real name likely won’t be revealed.

Ghost can walk through walls

Ghost has the ability to turn himself and things he touches invisible or intangible (but never both). This allows him to walk through walls, as well as creep into buildings unsuspected. After fighting (and being defeated by) Iron Man, Ghost upgraded his suit, giving him the ability to mask sounds (including his heartbeat).

Of course, Ghost’s technical wizardry makes him one of the fiercest hackers in the Marvel Universe, giving him access through even the toughest firewalls out there. He’s also skilled in firearms and explosives.

The MCU’s Ghost is a woman

In the latest Ant-Man and the Wasp trailer, we get to see Ghost phase and steal tech while giving Ant-Man a thorough ass-kicking. We also see Ghost’s face, and recognize her as Hannah John-Kamen, who’s been having a moment this year in Hollywood.

Her role as Ghost will no doubt be her biggest yet of 2018, and has us excited for the moves Marvel is making with the character on-screen.

When Entertainment Weekly asked Ant-Man and the Wasp director Peyton Reed about making the MCU’s Ghost female, he offered up a very practical answer: “The Ghost character could be male, female, anything, so it just seemed more interesting to us [to cast a woman].”

Ghost’s superpowers

Like the Wasp and Ant-Man, Ghost doesn’t necessarily have any superpowers per se. She just has above-average combat skills and a suit that utilizes crazy technology. In the Ant-Man and the Wasp movie Lego sets, Ghost has some kind of blue energy projectile that the official box info calls “Ghost’s 2 Power Blasts.”

Over in the comics, Ghost can phase through objects or engage cloaking to turn invisible, but he can’t do both at the same time. It’s unclear if the MCU Ghost will also be able to cloak herself, but it seems probable. The suit also allowed the comics Ghost some measure of technopathy and the ability to interface directly with technologies which made for some pretty extreme hacking skills.

Her motive 

So far, Ghost’s origins and motives in Ant-Man and the Wasp remain a total mystery, but we’re bound to find out the truth as we get closer to the film’s release.
