The mysterious force that will rewrite Marvel history this spring has been revealed - and it's Cosmic Ghost Rider, riding through the timestream in a new limited series by writers Paul Scheer and Nick Giovanetti, and artist Gerardo Sandoval.

Scheduled to beginin March, Cosmic Ghost Rider Destroys Marvel History will send the fan-favorite character to the past where he'll mess with Marvel's timeline. Interestingly, Cosmic Ghost Rider himself, co-created in Thanos #13 by Donny Cates and Geoff Shaw, is a bit of rewrite of Marvel history, as he's an alternate future version of Frank Castle who has become the Spirit of Vengeance.

Marvel has done similar stories before, including Punisher Kills the Marvel Universe and Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe, though those stories have generally pitted their heroes against physical enemies rather than the metaphysical concept of time.

This is not the first Marvel Comics work for Scheer, primarily known as an actor and comedian, and Giovanetti, primarily a video game writer - they co-authored a story for 2015's Deadpool Bi-Annual #1.

Cosmic Ghost Rider Destroys Marvel History #1 is due out on shelves March 6, 2019 with the series scheduled to run for five issues.

Here's the solicitation, along with the cover for the first issue:
