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

Well thank God for that.


> 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)?

My favourite was ASM #260-261 (I think that's the right issue nos) with Hobbie having kidnapped MJ, Liz and Harry and there's the huge warehouse fight. That was one of my first Spidey comics and always sticks in my mind.


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

At the time I really enjoyed it. Looking back, it doesn't really make much sense and seems to unnecessarily drag out the storyline.


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

Initial reaction was disappointment that it was Ned, but I was happy that it was finally over.


> 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?

Yes, old-time (or old) fan here. I thought it was either Ned or Lance Bannon.


> 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?

I think it would have been stupid and even more disappointing than the way it actually played out.


> 6) What did you think of Hobgoblin Lives?

Too long had passed since ASM #289. I think Stern should have left it alone. It was his choice not to tell DeFalco who Hobgoblin was supposed to be.


> 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?)

Kingsley definitely the best. Demogoblin the worst.


> Too long had passed since ASM #289. I think Stern should have left it alone. It was his choice not to tell DeFalco who Hobgoblin was supposed to be.

Did DeFalco really not know? It seemed to me he laid out the biggest of the clues in his own run (clues that were in fact never dealt with in the original storyline).
