Back in August Infinity Ward announced a Modern Warfare 2 based comic called MW2: Ghost. Well now, just a matter of weeks before the much awaited game (and comic) hit the shelves, we can bring you a preview of the first issue.

DC/WildStorm – “In anticipation of the sequel to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, WildStorm brings you a no-holds-barred, brutal tale of the mysterious Task Force 141 soldier known as Ghost.

Learning the motivation behind his mask and moniker is the tip of the iceberg in a story spanning the globe from the United Kingdom to war-torn Afghanistan to the drug war in Mexico.

Believe us, this will be talked about for years to come! Award-winning creator David Lapham (YOUNG LIARS, Stray Bullets) is joined by artist Kevin West in a shattering 6-issue tour-de-force epic!”

    Wait, so, Ghost isn’t Sgt. Riley? Or is he speaking of himself in the third person because Riley is ‘dead’?

            Finally, someone who understands! Gaz is alive because the bulett scraped the back of his head. You can see it in the Revenge is Like a Ghost MW2 trailer. Ghost may be alive, because he was shot in the shoulder w/a bulletproof vest, and wasn’t set on fire.

            well, technically Ghost is dead, because if you note that he has three exit wounds and four entrance wounds when he is tossed into the pit alonside Roach. And he is set on fire but you can’t see it because Roach dies shortly after. I’ve played the game a gazillion times bacause I’m trying to unlock all the acheivements.

            As for Gaz, he really was shot in the head at the end of Modern Warfare. Sorry love, I liked him too. Only Gaz was able to get away with being downright cheeky with Price. If you watch the ending carefully you can actually where he was shot, right to the back of the head, so even if he lived, he wouldn’t have lived very long. The back of the head has the part of your brain that controls your breathing and heart beat so if a blow to the back of your head can be deadly how much damage would a bullet do. ew… mental picture.

        My friend and I were looking for the real truth about Ghost’s death…We went on game spot official site,and this is what Robert Bowling(creator of MW2) said:”Ghost is not one person.It’s a team(group) of special soldiers which are named GHOST.”
        That’s enough to understand everything,and I think that everything becomes clearer when you read this words.I know that all this might be VERY funny,but we will see who will laugh when the game comes out…

      @Grim Joker, No Ghost isn’t Sgt.Riley, but he says the mask is the tribute to his old friend Sgt.Riley, and Riley is dead, that’s why he has the Simon and Riley part in his name: Simon “Ghost” Riley, the ghost of simon riley

    I thinking along the same lines as Grim Joker.I think maybe Ghost might be Riley and that Riley is ‘dead’ and he is now Ghost.He’s just talking about himself in the third person.I did think that it was maybe Gaz from MW1 and that he had somehow survived like a lot of people thought and that he just wears the mask to hide his scars since both are being voiced by the same actor.

      @Nate, I agree with this because Simon Riley is IW name for Ghost… but b.c He’s SAS and he was “killed” metaphoiclly speaking during training he is now Ghost… think about this… a ghost is the spirit of a dead man, so what Nate and Grim stated I believe to be true… besides Ghost is buried in this takeover by the cartel and diggs himself out.

    Ye that’s why now i’m pretty sure it’s not him.I mena it would be impossible to survive a point black shot to the head with a desert eagle.I know people want to believe he is still alive and i was one of them but we all need to face the fact that he is dead.If he’s not then i will lose faith IW cos the games would lose their realism then.Plus check out the close ups of Ghost on page 2 and Riley on page 4.They have identical features same eyebrows and same eyes.It’s gotta be Riley.Maybe the backstory connection between Soap and Ghost is both of them served together before joining the SAS or both of them passed selection together.

            yeah but he was shot in the forehead. the back of your head really is s different story love. the damage even if it didn’t go down to the spine would be enough, even with all the hacks, you can see it hit, now, let’s see the average bullet can travel about 20 yards a second, that’s more than enough force to penetrate the skull and hit the cerebelum, where the controls for the eyes are, then pass through the medula, goodbye control of breathing,digestion,blood flow,and body temperature. Even if he did survive, he’d be a vegitable and be on machines all his life. The Medulla isn’t all that big and even the sligtest damage to it is irrepairable. This is the human brain we’re talking about here, its cells don’t grow back like the rest.

    I think ghost is Gaz from MW1, they’re voiced by the same actor and i don’t think Infinity Ward would use him again if they ween’t trying to hint to the audience. Even though he was shot in the head, it may not have hit the brain and he may have survived. That explains why he wears a mask because a shot to the head would leave an unsightly mark.

    Okay, this debate needs to stop, now. Gaz was on the bridge at the end of CoD4 and was shot point blank with a Desert Eagle. Now the bullet seemed like it grazed the back of his head, but at the angle he shot, if somehow the blood loss didn’t kill him, the bullet also drove into the top of his spine, which is well enough on its own to kill him, and if it didn’t, he’d be parylized for life. That alone means it’s impossible for them to be the same person. I believe the term “Revenge is like a ghost” was used at that particular time, because Price’s right hand man and Soap’s friend just died in front of them, making them lust for revenge, see the connection? Also, it’s stated that during the events of CoD4, Gaz was about 35 and during MW2, Ghost was about 32, which means during CoD4, Ghost had to have been 27 or 26. Gaz is dead, he was awesome, but you’ve gotta face the facts. Sorry people.

    When Roach and Ghost are killed, Ghost gets shot in the stomach, and only Roach gets burned. Robert Bowling revealed that Ghost still lives on to fight again.

    Okay I’ll throw in my 25c (I say 25 because I want it to matter more then 2)
    Look, I agree this does need to end, but it won’t end with you people who keep saying (Come on lets face facts) because this game is a GAME! Roach survived: Being hit directly by a Mortar, Being shot in the gut by a .44 Magnum, then finally died after being lit on fire. Soap has survived a s**tload too (Boat Crash, Stab to the chest, Kick to the face) all around the same time as well as a blow to the head against a car. Lets not forget he survived the explosion and we all thought price was dead too at the end of MW1. How many times in the Call of Duty series have the characters survived the impossible?

    Yes, Gaz was shot in the back of the head with a Desert f**king Eagle, a gun that would rip him in half, but what about Zachaev who was shot confirmed by a .50 Cal? I’m on the side that Gaz is Ghost, here are some of the reason’s I agree with and saw myself.

    -Same Voice Actor (but thats common)
    -Works with Soap
    -He uses a gun similar to the G36c which is the gun that Gaz always used.
    -A High up in the Task Force
    -Price did call him Gaz, but it looked like Ghost (in the subtitles, come on you don’t just hear what you want to hear if you listen he says Gaz)
    -The Mask is a clue, he always wear’s the mask or something to cover his face (during SEALS op)
    -He leads the Multiplayer and Spec Ops mission’s, same as Gaz.

    These are just a few, look at the facts? What facts? Its a video game! If your shot in real life your gonna go down, your not gonna start having blood build up in your eyes, even on Veteran its not fully realistic. Gaz is cool, but thats not why he’s alive, its because him (just like Soap and Price) is a main character of Infinity Ward.

    Thats my opinion, agree or deny it, but just stop the pointless arguement.

    Well the truth is that I believe that Zakhaev was not looking when he shot gaz (from the memory) but before Zak kills him Gaz is a smart guy and moved his head so when he got shot he would live.

Next in mw2 sheperd shoots roach n ghost but sheperd shoots ghost in the chest so he may survive but the shadow company guy pour oil on both of them then sheperd trows the cigar at them and burns them showing the point of view of roach burning so ghost burns too. But I’ve got one last question wat happened to the snipes were they sheperds men 2? So I heard that mw3 is coming out and it’s going to be about this dude named keshon holmes or something like that so it’s barely going to be about price n soap or there might not be any price and soap

      @TF88, yeah but lieutenant general Shepard orders his men to pour oil on only roach not ghost because if you look closely he only lights Gary “Roach” Sanderson on firer with his cigar smarty

      @TF88,
      that thing with keishon luice is just a made-up thing. cod 8 (mw3 or not) is being worked on by a new studio called sledgehammer (something) and IW might be working on another cod title (possibly 9 )but we will only see everything next year. also cod 7 (waw2) will be released around the end of this year.

    Actually i don’t think Gaz is dead. I was noclipping behind when he got shot and the bullet actually hits his shoulder blade.

      @CallofDutyWiki, Gaz probably is dead but i saw the bullet in CoD4 when I noclipped and it skimmed his head and hit near his neck… i didnt read up about it but i secretly thought ghost was gaz… i still dont get how Price survived tho… lemme guess… russian military hospital or something.

    gaz is dead i wouldn’t want to believe it in the first place too but he got shot on the back if you use the noclip cheat before he was shot by zakhaev you can clearly see it wasn’t in the head it was in the back i don’t really know but infinity ward announced that gaz is dead no one knows for sure if gaz really is ghost but like the others said a 50.cal bullet at the back can surely kill you its like getting hit with a barrett sniper rifle in the back or like the sniper rifle you used to assasinate imran zakhaev in the mission one shot one kill so it could affect the other parts of the body and if gaz did survive that shot he will also die because of blood lost

      @Josh,
      I have had enough. Ghost is not gaz and I have good reasons. Firstly in modern warfare gaz is presumably higher ranked than soap. If gaz turned into ghost surely soap would know about it and ghost would be higher ranked than soap in mw2 but soap is a captain. Although ghosts rank is not stated he seems to be under soaps control such as in the gulag where soap orders him to take control of the security. Gaz took a bullet to the head. Desert eagle and kapow dead. I know that characters have wackily survived in the past but that would be insane to survive. Besides ghost probably just wants to wear the balaclava to intimidate the enemy and look cool.

      This is not a great reason but in the museum in mw2 in the first roo
      with the favela if you go up to soap you can see that he ha sas printed on his chest gear even though he is in 141 and ghost does not have that. Btw press square at the information desk. It makes the characters come alive and chase after you.

      Btw why would shepherd have roach burned but ghost not it does not make sense. Addy is jshepherd64 for psn.

        @Jim, Your right the game doesn’t state his rank but he’s according to Wiki a Lieutenant and second in command under SOAP. which makes sense…. I think that changes after Price comes back tho.

    omg you guys listen i love mw2 i wish Gaz was i alive and i think he is but I may never know for sure. It is like 2:06 where i am so i had all this time read this but this has been going on since like the day it came out in 09 well wake you game addics (sry cant spell) it is a freaking GAME. the reson he has the same voice is probly buchit cut and they couldnt afford anyone ever thing about that. AND one more thing the reson some of you seen the shot to gaz on the shoulder or the neck or back. WELL HOW THE HELL COULD IT BE TO THE BACK? AND IT IS A CHEAT IT WAS NEVER MENT TO BE SEEN LIKE THAT DAAAAAA. NOW GET A GOSH DAMA LIFE and thats the truth and the truth hurts.

    I just thought of this. Ghost wears a mask because when he was Gaz he was shot in the head, and if messed up his face really bad so he uses the baklava to cover his face. BAM.

    For everyone who thinks Ghost aint Gaz, all ya have to do is listen to the obvious similarities of the way they talk (an im not talking about them havin the same voice actor), ther lines like “Lets do this!” (they both say that in pretty much the same kinda situation) or the way its always the taking the piss out of comand (example: COD4(on the bridge when comand says they cant send anyone ) gaz says “useless w****r!” or “Oh, he’s got to be taking the piss!? We just busted our arses to get to this LZ and now they want us to go all the way back down?!” and in COD6 in takedown ghost says: Bollocks the skies are clear send a chopper over
    and then: Commands got their head up their arse we’re on our own.
    Its just the way their like aggressive wen they talk its the same kind of script.
    They’ve just got so much in common, and about the hack, IW could have made an accurate shot in the head if they wanted to, it was obvious someone would want to hack the game to figure out the truth, so I think they didn’t accurately put the gun to Gaz’s head, just so that people would wonder about this kind of thing, it makes the anticipation for the continuing game even higher, and although the anticipation would have been pretty much the same, i bet when they saw that vid on youtube about gaz not being dead got a couple of extra sales. And plus by people making webs here an there for discussions about this only widens the publicity about the game, in fact for a lot of people its an obsession, trying to figure out weather gaz is dead or ghost is gaz, etc.
    And also like in COD4 gaz plays the second in command part, ghost plays second in command most of the MW2 game. So bottom line is its a GAME, and people created it to make cash, and a good way to make it more popular is to keep people wondering, and like i said before that creates more anticipation about the games plot and there for more sales are made and more cash is made.

    Why do people think hes Gaz? Gaz got shot and KILLED in MW. He will not come abck to life because he got his brains splattered on the game. im sure he sounds like Gaz because he may be the same voice actor because money is tight and he was good at it so they made him play another role, alot of games and tv shows do it. Gaz wasnt even a big role in MW he was just some douche on your team that lasted the entire game. Ghost is Riley, people need to be able to understand these clues they give you so you know its him.

    OK You guys Ghost is Sgt.Riley and Gaz is not GHOST if you read the comic is said the the girl ask that he was Riley and Riley’s face is completely deferent from Gaz

    We All know and love Gaz and ghost but trust me gaz is dead and even if the bullet let say Zakaev missed and only scraped the back of its head and did not go through or penetrated the skull. if he did survive he would probably retired or in a coma.

    As for Ghost sadly he to is Dead look at the wound that he receive from a pointblank shot from a .44 magnum when he is tossed, and even he survive and didn’t not get burned. Shepherd’s men the shadow company will still be there for a very long time mopping up the area, collecting other intels , and looking for Russian soldiers and TF-141 survive insuring that know one will know what really happen more than enough time for ghost to lose to much blood and does not have a way of getting out of that place.
