Space Ghost's costume is a white bodysuit, black hood, yellow cape, belt with red buckle, silhouette of hood on red triangle on chest, and red wristbands with yellow buttons. 1.3 What are Space Ghost's super powers? Space Ghost's powers come directly from his costume and power bands. These are the powers of the costume and power bands that I have seen in the original episodes. Costume: belt which has "inviso button" that renders him invisible and also generates a protective force field around him, communicator located in silhouette on chest, viso penetron beam (from eyes), the power of flight, the ability to survive underwater, and protection from outer space. Space Ghost also has the power of teleportation. By concentrating and focusing all of his will Space Ghost can change each atom of his being to pure thought and energy and teleport to another location and reassemble himself. Power Bands: reversing force ray, hypno force will power, destroyer ray, force ray, super power, destructo ray, pile driver ray, energy force, stun ray, heat force, megaton force, magna ray, heat ray, freeze ray, freeze force, heat intensifier ray, sonic vibro ray, whip ray, frost ray, freeze field, scatter ray, power rays, anti-matter ray, electro shock ray, battering ram ray, locking ray, hammer ray, megatron ray, energy ray, magnetic ray, laser beam, ice force field, force shield, force field, viso wall, super speed, hyperspeed, and the ability to create a time warp. These are combined powers from the power bands: heat and energy ray, force field and energy power, stun ray and force energy power, raising the power to 5 over 5. 1.4 How does Space Ghost get around? Space Ghost either uses his super powers from the costume to fly or he uses his spaceship "The Phantom Cruiser/Ghost Ship". Space Ghost is able to fly faster than the "Phantom Cruiser/Ghost Ship" with just his costume and power bands. "The Phantom Cruiser/Ghost Ship" is capable or reaching hyperspeeds. "The Phantom Cruiser/Ghost Ship" has several weapons: freeze mist, inviso power, heat ray, cold ray, stun ray, electro shock force field, and energy force. "The Phantom Cruiser/Ghost Ship" is also able to track a wide variety of frequencies through space, it has a "revitalizer" unit to repair damages, and is equipped with a radionic "interference" screen to filter out energy being directed at the ship's occupants. "The Phantom Cruiser/Ghost Ship" is also equipped with heat seeking missiles.

Space Ghost now lives on the Ghost Planet. The Ghost Planet is located between Earth and the rest of Space Ghost's patrol sector. The Ghost Planet Headquarters has living quarters, a vast communication and sensor room, a storage facility, and a hangar for the Phantom Cruiser. The Ghost Planet Headquarters has a defensive force shield and generates power from the interior of the planet.

I have found out that Alex Toth drew these pictures of Space Ghost without his mask on. These pictures are taken from a model sheet that he drew while designing Space Ghost. These pictures can be found in Toon Magazine Volume 1, Number 3, 1994. This issue also has pictures of early designs of Space Ghost. One included Space Ghost with a gun and holster and no power bands. (Thanks to Todd Marsh for this information.)

He has great powers, great allies, great villains, and a great ship. This makes for interesting stories and a great time. Top -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SPACE GHOST'S HISTORY -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2.1 What is Space Ghost's origin? I have researched through books, comics, and all the TV cartoon shows and I cannot find any indication of Space Ghost's origin. One book speculated that he was either a scientist who invented this great costume and power bands, or he was given the costume by the galactic patrol. In Space Ghost # 1 1967, Space Ghost mentions his old teacher teaching him the mysteries of the universe. Click to hear Space Ghost tell a little of his background.
