Yay! This thread has nothing whatsoever to do with OMD/BND!

Here's some Hobbie related questions for you:

1) What's your favourite all-time Hobgoblin story (you can choose any of them - Kingsley, Macendale, that female one from 2211 etc)?

2) What did you think of the Flash being framed storyline?

3) What was your initial reaction to ASM #289 (Hobbie revealed as Ned Leeds)?

4) If you're an old-time fan (or just an old fan) and were reading Spidey in the 80s - who did you think Hobgoblin was at the time?

5) If Stern's plan of the 'evil twin' Kingley was originally done in the 80s comics, how do you think you would have reacted to the revelation at the time?

6) What did you think of Hobgoblin Lives?

7) What's been best and worst Hobgoblin incarnation? (Kingley, mercenary Madendale, demonic Inferno Macendale, Demogoblin, souped-up clone saga era Hobgoblin, Bendis Secret War Hobgoblin, 2211 Hobgoblin... am I forgetting any?)

Loved the build up and mystery that led up to Hobgoblins death in ASM #289. It spanned many, many issues, but it was great running plot.

It was a great twist and made for some interesting conflicts.

I didn't like it at first. One of my favorite Spider-Man comics at the time was an ASM issue where Ned saved Spider-Man by jumping in front of Cobra's wrist-rockets-- made no sense to my child mind that he would save Spider-Man once and then later want to kill him. But, I got over it and my only regret was that there was no good Goblin around anymore.

At the time, I thought for sure it was Lance Bannon. Kingsley didn't even blip on my radar.

It would have had less impact because Ned was a more important character in my mind and that made the revelation more believably devestating for Peter.

> 6) What did you think of Hobgoblin Lives?
I thought it cheapened the original story a bit. I don't think it added much and seemed less credible to me.

Best: Original Hobgoblin (with mysterious unknown identity for added paranoia)
Worst: 2211 Hobgoblin (I hate time travel)
