> > 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).
>
> No, DeFalco nor Owsley/Priest knew at all. Stern told nobody. So Peter David, Owsley and DeFalco all drew to one single conclusion - Ned Leeds. Except Owsley decided to throw people off the scent and kill Ned to surprise everybody. Which kind of worked well... I guess.
>
> To be fair, the clues that Hobgoblin was Kingsley were sparse and not telling (Kingsley thinking 'oh, I must visit my twin brother' or something is obviously what somebody who'd planned the ending would write for retrospective but it's not a clue somebody would pick up during the hunt). The biggest throw off was that Kingsley was meant to have been murdered whilst the Hobgoblin was on the prowl, similar to the Leeds throw off... There were far more red herrings to indicate Bannon or Leeds, which were deliberate.
>
> Now somebody else can help here... did Stern start using Leeds as a mark or was it just the work of DeFalco?

By the Mad Goblin. I think he used to post here off and on. Anyways, this article has any and everything you EVER wanted to know about Hobgoblin including the Kingsley revelation, etc.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Well, thanks for stealing two hours of my night! That series was just awesome! (I'm so glad I didn't have to write it!)

Seriously, if anyone is interested in the Hobgoblin, this series of articles must be read and appreciated.
