Just thought of this...in Amazing Spider-Man #280....we also see that Mary Jane is working as a model at Kingsley's business (though she thinks she is interacting with Roderick Kingsley...it is actually twin brother Daniel that she talks to). This is the second time (ASM #250 is the first) that readers are shown Daniel (but we are lead to believe that he is Roderick who is talking to the Hobgoblin). That same issue Mary Jane meets the Hobgoblin in civilian clothes and knows him (leaving readers to wander how Mary Jane knows him)...This all became much clearer years later when 'we' were let in on the fact that Roderick has a twin brother.
I think I made Hobby's backstory as confusing as possible...if not, let me know and I will try harder!!!
