Zayn Malik inspires new comic book character

Zayn Malik has inspired a new comic book character.

The One Direction star's "boyish expression" has inspired a new look for crime-fighter Ghost Rider, and the animations of the supernatural stunt-motorcyclist are a dead ringer for the 'Kiss You' singer.

Ghost Rider - also known as Robbie Reyes - features chiselled cheekbones, a mean scowl and Zayn's signature blonde-streaked hairstyle.

According to the Sun Newspaper, Editor Mark Paniccia told Illustrator and creator, Felipe Smith: "The guy from One Direction's name is Zayn Malik. I was picturing Robbie as a beefier version of him. Physically strong with a quiet, troubled, expression...kind of boyish."

Zayn will be pleased with the news as he is a big fan of comic books and his fiance Perrie Edwards, gave him an Incredible Hulk themed cake in celebration of his 21st birthday in January.

The 'Midnight Memories' hitmaker also has a cartoon inspired tattoo of the Little Mix star on his arm and the word 'ZAP!' written in comic strip-style font on his forearm.

Meanwhile, Perrie has said that accepting Zayn's proposal was a "no brainer" after the One Direction star got down on one knee last August.

She said: "I think you know yourself when the time's right and when you're with the right person. I'm not a typical girl that's partying all the time. I just want to be with someone and let that be it."
