Confirmation comes from an article detailing DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns upcoming visit to the Arab American National Museum in Detroit to mark the character's debut. The story in the Detroit Free Press (via Newsarama) describes the hero the "first Arab-American Green Lantern," and also marks the first DC confirmation of the character's name — 'Baz'.
