Black Bart [1] was a ghostly cowboy that tormented the people of Spittoon, Texas.

HistoryEdit

Black Bart became obsessed with attaining more power and set his sights on Spittoon. He issued an ultimatum for the townspeople to leave by Saturday, when he would return at high noon. [2] The townspeople believed that he wanted their gold mine, but the Ghostbusters learned that he really wanted a Spectral Well that would make him powerful enough to transmogrify into a full fledged demon, but would only work without the presence of humans. [3] [4] [5] The Mayor issued a reward for whoever could defeat Black Bart. Two townsmen, Dwayne and Wendall, flew to New York and recruited the Ghostbusters after ruining a bust at the airport. Bart was a very tough opponent until the Ghostbusters encouraged the people to stand up for themselves.

Black Bart returned aboard Black Bart's Train and called in reinforcements to tame the emboldened townsfolk. Fortunately, reinforcements also came for the Ghostbusters when a lost group of tourists from Wild West Tours mistook Black Bart's transformation into a demon as a special effects show. Because of this, Black Bart was weakened and he was captured by the Ghostbusters along with his gang. Peter confined him with the Proton Cannon atop Ecto-1.

PowersEdit

Black Bart was a very powerful ghost, able to fire balls of ectroplasmic energy out of his hands, which destroyed whatever they hit. He could also summon his ghostly gang, and control the weather, summoning lightning bolts to attack the Ghostbusters. He also was able to repel the Ghostbusters single blasts, but all four blasts concentrated into one beam was enough to drive him off.

ClassificationEdit

When Ray Stantz asked what class level Black Bart is, Egon Spengler answered he is a Class 7 or better. [6]
