Act of Vengeance?
Less than a week before the release of Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, the character’s co-creator Gary Friedrich was ordered to pay $17,000 to Marvel Characters, Inc., following years of legal wrangling over the rights to the supernatural hero. Writer Steve Niles of 30 Days of Night fame has set up a donation page where fans can offer some financial support to the 68-year-old Friedrich.
