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?)

It's hard to pick just one: I'd go with his first appearance in ASM 238, just an awesome intro. Another was the poison/antidote story from an issue of PP:SM where Harry Osborne got poisoned and Spider-Man raced against the clock to find the cure. And then finally Hobgoblin Lives, simply because it allowed Stern to finish the story he had started so long ago.

One of the best uses of Flash in Spider-Man history. It was great.

I had heard about it at the time, but for some reason I could never track down that issue or the Wolverine/Spider-Man one-shot back then. If I recall, DeFalco was leaning pretty heavily in that direction so it wasn't a major surprise to me. Seemed a bit of a letdown that the mystery was over and it was Ned.

I could never settle on one character. I think I had it down to Jonas Harrow or Richard Fisk.

It's hard to say, since we don't really know how much longer he would've dragged the plot out, right? It may have gone another year... but I would've enjoyed it.

I thought it was great. I do think they dropped the ball with the character after that series wrapped up though.

For sheer mytsery and coolness factor, it's tough to beat the original Kingsley era from ASM 238-251. The early Macendale up through Gang War was prett good as well. When they went demonic with Macendale that's when the wheels fell off for me.

Hey why should Spider-Girl get all the love, bring back Kingsley in the regular books!!!!
