Ichabod Crane
Real Name Ichabod Crane

Ichabod Crane is a character from The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. In the story, Crane is killed by the Headless Horseman.

When Rick Jones first saw Ghost Rider he used Crane's name in reference to the story by comparing the superhero to the legendary horseman.


Jone's reference is baseless in the story itself. It comes from The Walt Disney Company's film The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad. That film featured the Horseman using a flaming pumpkin to attack Crane. The book itself does not feature fire in any significant way. This film also inspired Green Goblin's Pumpkin Bombs.
