Powers and Abilities

Blackout is a mutant that can manipulate light areas into complete darkness. This darkness would serve as a tool to surprise his victims in the dark. His darkness manipulation can stretch out hundreds of yards. He also had implanted steel fangs and claws which he uses as a weapon. When he was reborn by Lilith, the fangs and claws became real. He has super-human strength and speed. Though he is weak against Hellfire, and had a chain jabbed into his skull, he was still able move to safety. And even thought he was reborn a demonic vampire, little is known on how powerful his vampirism is. It is not known if he can infect others by biting them. As a hired assassin, Blackout was also very talented when sneaking up on victims.

He also seems immune to Deathwatch's telepathic powers.

FILM: Blackout is a villain in Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. He is played by Johnny Whitworth. This version is not faithful to the comics he has the same appearance and the powers to fight Ghost Rider. He's turned like this by the Devil to complete his job and steal Nadya's son, Danny.

He starts out as a Merc known a Carrigan. He works for the devil to capture Danny. He first fights Ghost Rider and knocks him out with a grenade launcher. The second time he fights Ghost Rider he is s defeated and is near death with a boulder crushing him. The Devil then gives him supernatural powers and brings him back to life. He later finds Danny and kills a group of monks. He brings him to the devil for the ritual. He finally fights Ghost Rider on a moving truck and his thrown underneath the truck running him over.



Due to his demonic heritage, Blackout possesses a variety of superhuman powers.

Superhuman Strength: Blackout possesses superhuman strength, one of the more common powers possessed by demons or beings with some degree of demonic heritage. At his peak, Blackout can lift about 2 tons.

Superhuman Speed: Blackout can run and move at speeds that are beyond the natural physical limits of the finest human athlete.

Superhuman Stamina: Blackout's advanced musculature produces less fatigue toxins during physical activity than the musculature of a human. At his peak, he can exert himself at peak capacity for several hours before the build up of fatigue toxins in his blood begins to impair him.

Superhuman Durability: Blackout's body was somewhat tougher and more resistant to physical injury than the body of a normal human, possibly a by-product of his superhuman strength. Blackout's body could withstand the rigors of great impact forces. He could withstand impacts, such as falling from several stories or being struck by someone possessing a lower level degree of superhuman strength, that would severely injure or kill a human being.

Superhuman Agility: Blackout's agility, balance, and bodily coordination are enhanced to levels that are beyond the natural physical limits of the finest human athlete.

Superhuman Reflexes: Blackout's reflexes are similarly enhanced and are superior to those of a normal human.

Superhuman Sight: Blackout's eyesight is heightened to a degree well beyond that of a normal human. He can see with perfect clarity at much greater distances than a normal human. He retains this same level of clarity at night, even to the point of being able to see perfectly in near-total darkness.

Darkness Creation: Blackout, befitting the name he uses, is able to psionically extinguish any natural or artificial light source within his immediate vicinity.

Supernatural light sources like Ghost Rider's hellfire are not affected by Blackout's power.


Blackout is a formidable hand to hand combatant and is also experienced in wrestling techniques. He is also a highly trained acrobat, which he uses in combination with his great agility to use a unique freestyle type of fighting that he combines with his more conventional fighting skills.


Blackout's skin is extremely sensitive to light. Exposure to direct sunlight causes his skin to burn rapidly.
