The Crimson Mage Azaziah separated Johnny Blaze and his demonic alter-ego Ghost Rider. Blaze then attacked Azaziah, attempting to destroy his mystic globe, the source of his power. Azaziah triumphed and upon knocking Blaze unconscious, recited an incantation that allowed him to posses the body of the Ghost Rider. Using the power of the Ghost Rider, Azaziah intended to control the "Pearl of Christendom", also known as the Vatican.

Azaziah soon embarked on a reign of terror at the Vatican and surrounded it by hellfire, and then burned his way into the room containing the Pope himself. When Blaze arrived in Italy to stop Azaziah, he stole a local's motorcycle and used it to jump over the flames. Unfortunately, Blaze landed on his leg, which also caused great pain to the Ghost Rider's leg given their supernatural connection. Sensing that Blaze was near, Azaziah managed to capture Blaze and shackle him to the wall. As Azaziah managed to summon the mystical scimitar of Ra-Mon-Beth in his attempt to take the life of the Pope, Blaze managed to break free of his shackles. Blaze quickly grabbed the scimitar and cut the Pope free. Blaze then stabbed Azaziah in the heart with the scimitar. As Azaziah died, his connection with the Ghost Rider also killed Blaze as well.[1]
