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?)


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

Probably the blackmail storyline in ASM #249.

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

It was okay.

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

Ho-hum. (I only read it recently so I already knew it wasn't really him).

Didn't like Macendale's Hobgoblin in that story, actually.

> 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?

Pass.

> 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?

Goo-goo.

> 6) What did you think of Hobgoblin Lives?

A mostly credible and worthwhile explanation for the Hobgoblin's identity, but not that great a story. (And despite my misgivings for Macendale, he had become a worthwhile in his own right by this point, and it seemed a bit wasteful to kill him off the way they did.)

Ned Leeds had been so embedded as the Hobgoblin in the earlier "Rose confesses" story that it was hard to take his part of things seriously, with him pretending to be the Hobgoblin apparently even more than Kingsley did (making one wonder what the point of the story was at all). Perhaps they could have had Rose brainwashed instead.

Kingsley best. Ned Leeds worst. (If Ned doesn't count then Demogoblin was pretty poor too.)
