> 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).

Stern told DeFalco that Kingsley was the Hobgoblin, but also said it was Tom's comic now and if Tom wanted someone else to be the the Hobgoblin, he could.

DeFalco's ultimate plan was to reveal Richard Fisk as the Hobgoblin, but that got scotched when Jim Owlsley fired him off Amazing.

All this was revealed two years ago at the Mid-Ohio Comic Con during a Spider-Man writers panel that included Stern, DeFalco and Peter David. I wish I would have recorded it, because it probably was the definitive history of the Hobgoblin identity mess.
















"The grassroots support from the SG message board has been fantastic. Those fans have managed to keep Spider-Girl alive. They never gave up on the title. Not even when Marvel canceled it and told me there was no hope of ever bringing it back. Spider-Girl lives because of her fans!"
