Artist Challenges Marvel’s Claim to Superhero

Walt Disney Co.’s Marvel Entertainment must go to trial to defend against a copyright claim by Gary Friedrich, who claims he created the comic book character “Ghost Rider,” a motorcycle-riding superhero with a flaming skull.

The case is Gary Friedrich Enterprises LLC v. Marvel Characters Inc., 12-00893, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. U.S. Judge Denny Chin wrote on behalf of a three-judge panel.
