Ghost Rider creator Gary Friedrich is so angry his head might actually catch on fire. Stating the rights to Ghost Rider reverted to him from Marvel back in 2001, he has named Marvel, Sony Pictures, Columbia Tristar, Relativity Media, Crystal Sky Pictures, Hasbro, Michael De Luca Productions and Take-Two Interactive in a joint lawsuit, suggesting they considered to exploit, profit from and utilize his copyrights.
His claims of negligence and waste are going to get any arguments from me regarding both the movie and the video game that accompanied it. A complete waste of an excellent character.
Apparently there have been arguments between Gary, Roy Thomas, and artist Mike Ploog as to the creation of the character. Back in 2001, Friedrich was quoted as saying, "I threatened on more than one occasion that if Marvel gets in a position where they are gonna make a movie or make a lot of money off of it, I'm gonna sue them, and I probably will. ... It was my idea. It was always my idea from the first time we talked about it,." (from Wikipedia)
