Hoping you can clarify when Wicked's Judgement from Ghost Rider would trigger on a beam attack. Can Ghost Rider pay to use this ability after each character is attacked? I ask this as a previous post about Wicked's Judgement on a rapid fire attack states that Rapid fire would trigger first and then Ghost Rider could use Wicked Judgement on the first attack dice pool, but after the second attack had gone through. However, is the beam attack considered to be resolved with each dice roll against each character and therefore Ghost Rider can use the ability after each attack or would he wait until all attacks are finalized and the specific attack sequence ends for him to use it based on the initial dice pool? Seems strange that an ability to rapid fire would mean that attack sequence has not ended yet, but a beam attack is treated as resolved after each attack, even though the overall attack has not been resolved? 

Had this come up in a game where Ghost Rider did this after each attack from Hulks Thunder Clap (which was targeting 4 characters including Ghost Rider) and ended up doing something like 14 damage to Hulk and knocked him out. 

Also, does wicked judgement need to happen before Spirit of vengeance? So can Ghost Rider use spirit of vengeance to gain one power to enable him to perform Wicked's Judgement if he only had one power before this point?

Beam attacks resolve differently than regular attacks. For a beam all targets are determined initially then the attacks against them are fully resolved one at a time. During step 14b of each of these attacks Ghost Rider’s Wicked’s Judgment may be used. 

Regular attacks with Rapid Fire essentially work the same way, but the Rapid Fire will resolve in 14a and create a whole new attack within that step. This means the whole sequence will repeat and there will then be two opportunities for Ghost Rider’s Wicked’s Judgment—14a of the second attack, then 14a of the first attack. 

Spirit of Vengeance has the same timing as Wicked’s Judgment so Ghost Rider’s controlling player decides the order to resolve them.
