Thing is, where I come from, that’s just short for Barry.
Are we really going to get Barry The Green Lantern?
No wonder he’s packing.
UPDATE: And yes, I’m told Baz is a popular Arabic name, that means Falcon. And he does have Arabic tattoos on his skin. But dammit, I’m not giving up. Everyone call him Barry The Green Lantern and it might just stick.

After teasing the new Iron Man creative team yesterday, Marvel is continuing the slow information drip with a new teaser for what we presume is a new Thor series.
Jason Aaron? Esad Ribic? I'll bite. I would expect more of these kind of teasers throughout the week.
Gary Friedrich, co-creator of Ghost Rider, has filed his appeal against Marvel Comics after their court win over the ownership of the character. The case concluded with an agreement that Gary Friedrich would have to pay Marvel $17,000 because he sold signed Ghost Rider work and represented himself as the creator of the character.
The appeal seems to focus on the belief that Gary Friedrich did not transfer his ownership to the company, and that the decision was based on this court assumption, and they were wrong to do so. Daniel Best, who puts up the files, adds that the existence of a Silver Surfer graphic novel from the late seventies that is copyright to both Stan Lee and Moebius, sheds doubt on assumptions made in the court case that there were no allowances made for creator ownership at the company at the time.
There is also the argument of duress, that Friedrich was made to eventually sign a Marvel contract with the threat that he would get no more work if he did not so. He signed… and then got no more work.
The upcoming animated adaptation of Frank Miller's classic tale, featuring the voice of Robocop's Peter Weller as Batman.
