The demonic beings known as The Hidden according to the Caretaker (Carter Slade), were fallen angels cast down from Heaven after their battle with the archangel Michael and his fellow heavenly warriors. They all hide within the elements that creates life and brings destruction. They wait for the End of Days.
Centuries later, the Hidden were then disturbed and yet joined forces with Blackheart in his acquisition of the Contract of San Venganza and its power to create a new Hell on Earth. They were later stopped and fought by the Ghostrider. Each of the Hidden attacked the Ghost Rider with all of their dark powers and deadly proweress, but Ghost Rider managed to best their attacks and defeated them all before facing Blackheart.
