The Baron of York was an underground figure encountered by Green Lantern.
A scientist, calling himself Baron of York due royal genealogy, killed his own brother, a gang boss, and became the new boss after convincing the rest of the criminals that he was the only man that can find and control Solomon Grundy. Grundy was previously hit by a train while fighting Green Lantern and appeared to die. The gang came to the place where Grundy was killed, and the scientist, knowing that the monster was only pseudo-life, composed of rooted undergrowth and leaves, administered concentrated chlorophyll to his corpse. Green Lantern and Doiby Dickles arrived and began to fight the criminals, but weren't able to stop the revived Grundy who became green due the chlorophyll. Afterward, Grundy and the gang began a crime spree across America. When the group came to New Jersey, Grundy stopped and asked the Baron his plans and how he was involved. After the Baron bluffed about Grundy being worshiped and served, the monster killed him and assumed his role as gang boss.
