Charles Foster Hearse [1] (also known as Charles Foster Hearse I) was the founder of the "Spooks Illustrated," "Boosweek," and "Popular Phantasmics" magazines. [2] [3]

HistoryEdit

Charles Foster Hearse I founded a publishing empire based on his love of the supernatural and occupied a locale named the Slime Life Building. [4] [5] Hearse was most famous for starting the magazine "Spooks Illustrated." He also amassed the world's largest collection of books on the supernatural, including "Rasputin's Spiritual Exercises" and "Rottweiler on Olfactory Manifestations." [6] [7] The collection was seen on a television series called "Haunts of the Rich & Famous." [8] He also loved snow and had the Hearse Castle surrounded by artificial snow. [9] Hearse used his fortune to bring a cathedral named San Simoleon back from a trip to Europe and placed it on his property. [10] [11]

In death, Hearse ironically became a ghost and haunted his castle. [12] His grandson Charles Foster Hearse III offered the Ghostbusters the title of "Ghost Hunter of the Year" to whichever one of them succeeded in capturing his grandfather's ghost by sunrise. [13] The Ghostbusters, after several failed attempts to trap Charles Foster Hearse I, realized that they were meant to be a team and that Charles Foster Hearse I wanted his sleigh Rosebud. He was last seen happily riding his sleigh in the snow as he dispersed. Since all of the Ghostbusters rid the mansion of the ghost, Charles Foster Hearse III decided that all of the Ghostbusters were worthy of being labeled "Ghost Hunter of the Year."

PowersEdit

Charles Foster Hearse I has the standard abilities of ghosts. He also displayed the ability to form a conglomerate from billiard cues and balls, possessed an Egyptian statue, and formed a giant snowball. He also rather agile and dodged the Proton Streams at every turn.

PersonalityEdit

Not much is revealed of Hearse's personality until he is given his sleigh back. When riding Rosebud, he is shown enjoying his ride with childlike delight.
