Ghost Rider: Danny Ketch #1, 2008
Shoba may have passed on to the next life, but her Spirit of Vengeance lived on in Heaven. When Daniel and his brother, Johnny, chose to fight Zadkiel, Shoba and her flaming pachyderm were called on to help defeat the rogue angel. Her work wasn't completed with Zadkiel's defeat, however, as Kid Blackheart led the charge of his father's forces into Heaven. Shoba helped oppose the forces of Hell and liberated the holy city once and for all.
Daniel didn't know much about where his powers came from, but an agent of Zadkiel changed all that. The minion showed Daniel he wasn't alone. There were other Spirits of Vengeance out in the world, and Verminus Rex was stealing their powers for himself. Shoba was next on his list, and Daniel was stunned when he witnessed her transformation into a Ghost Rider. Daniel, much like a drug addict, had been given small doses of the power he once held to make him pledge his allegiance to Zadkiel, and this time was no different. Ketch used the excuse of helping Shoba to get another fix, and his request was granted. Unfortunately, Daniel was sloppy, too engrossed in his quest for power instead of focusing on the big picture, and Shoba was taken prisoner. Daniel searched for her night after night, but it was Shoba that found him again once she escaped Rex's dimension. Wounded beyond repair, the entity inside her threatened to take control, and Shoba begged Daniel to rescue her. He wasn't sure what to do, but like a parasite, Ketch leeched her powers into himself. Shoba's human half had been saved, and she thanked Daniel even as she passed away in his arms.
