Indexer Notes

This version of Ghost Rider was co-created by Gary Friedrich, Roy Thomas and Mike Ploog. In 2012, the owners of Marvel Comics, Disney Corporation, won a court case asserting their rights to the character. Disney also won the countersuit by Friedrich, the ruling of which prevents him from promoting himself as the creator of Ghost Rider for financial gain.
