Synopsis for "Manitou's Anger... Tarantula's Sting."

Transported back to the Wild West, Johnny Blaze ends up meeting the Phantom Rider, the Ghost Rider spirit from that era. The two work together to stop the Tarantula and his men from committing a heist, and after battling the Manitou once more, Johnny as the Ghost Rider uses his hellfire to make the Tarantula and his men surrender to the sheriff.

Returned to his own time prior to Ed Pollard setting off the explosion to destroy the dam, Ghost Rider manages to throw the bombs into the sky causing them to harmlessly explode and save the town below.
