Real Name: Rex Fury

A western gunslinger who had a dual identity. Not named (or disguised) at first, the persona he presented while just walking down the street was comparatively more spineless and unassured than the one he used while battling crime.
Though he was Rex Fury, he never revealed that name to anyone initially. It was only when he dumped the name "Calico Kid" that he would reveal he was, in fact, Rex Fury, a federal marshall.
But it was at this same time that he start using an entirely new superhero persona, The Ghost Rider. Whereas Fury was bound to uphold the letter of the law by day, Ghost Rider could find supernatural justice in the middle of the night.
One of the ironies of this character is that he was always depicted as being a traveller—he was always going from town to town. If that was the case, then one wonders why he bothered with the "Clark Kent" act, since he ostensibly had no constant friends or family to protect.
