Penance Stare this is spite.
Hmm everybody thinks ghost rider stomps.. I must defend hao! even if ghost rider still stomps X3.
As you see in this wiki:
Penance stare has limitations, and the examples are:
If this is hao asakura with great spirit, i don't see how ghost rider can get close to him enough to get eye contact.
As you can see " Can be reflected back. " Hao can probably reflect it back.
"Some targets may be immune." Who knows, hao may be immuned because he can also soul steal, even if ghost rider can get close enough since it may only work for a limited time, hao's fire spirit will own ghost rider in that time.
Yeah i know he is durable and he has also taken blows from WW Hulk and taken little to no damage, but hao burns the souls of his enemies and erases them from existence..
so.. Fire spirit will just eat him, with great spirit hao might even stomp this.
And if you think his hell fire can beat fire spirit, maybe it can.. But with great spirit, fire spirit is unbeatable.
