Barry Goldman is desperate to get recognition and to revenge himself on the world for the wrongs it has perpetrated on him. He constantly sought out the occult, but got himself into too much trouble and was saved by the young Warden, JACK YOUNGBLOOD, who ridiculed him for being a loser. Goldman was humiliated and swore his undying hatred for Jack and has been trying to bring down ever since. In his never ending quest for power Barry sold his sold to the Black God of murder, CHERNOBOG. He sacrificed his own mother and sister to the Slavic deity becoming a high priest who wielded far more power than one would expect from a petty loser like him. He eventually gained command of Chernobog’s chosen vessel, RYAN DELMONT, but when the THE UN-MAN was born out of Barry’s missteps and devoured Delmont’s power leaving him a physical wreck whose body was back under the control of CASIMIR SOKOLOV Chernobog was not pleased. Goldman no longer has the Black God’s favor while Sokolov’s stock has steadily risen.
