Quote:I'm just wondering if people prefer the original revelation or the Kingsley one. I recently bought and reread Amazing #289 (When Ned was revealed at that time to be The Hobgoblin.), and I kind of liked the issue. Macendale was the Hobgoblin that I read about until his death, so he was kind of "My" Hobgoblin. Looking back though, he wasn't all that great in the role. I definitely prefer the original Hobgoblin. From what I understand, a lot of people didn't really like Ned as the Hobgoblin (Including editorial.). I still think that it's a pretty good issue, but one thing that bothers me is that it said that Ned became the Hobgoblin to TAKE down criminals (Such as the Kingpin.), but then went kind of crazy. BUT, in the original issues, he was pretty cold and murderous from the beginning. When he kills his informant and then kidnaps and kills Lefty Donovan. I'm not sure how that can fit, so I think that Kingsley works better. We don't really know anything about Kingsley though, so, who knows? Anyhow, what do you guys think?
Not sure, as I didn't read a whole lot of Spidey comics back then, but I have a question: Did Roderick Kingsley appear in the Spidey comics back during the time that the original Hobgoblin was out there in the comics? If so, what did he do? And it was just the 80's, right?
Help make an "Evil Dead: The Game" tie-in and/or continuation comics from Dark Horse Comics or IDW Publishing:
Starz cancelled the show, Bruce Campbell has retired as Ash, and there's going to be a post-show video game called "Evil Dead: The Game", so help us with our petition for tie-in and/or continuation comics of it!
Also, I've made a .doc file for a posted flyer for the page. Please also print and post these pages at your LCS.
