    Kingsley did appear in the comics during the storyline of the Hobgoblin.



    Quote:
    Sometimes I think at the same time Hobgoblin was elsewhere such as meeting with the Rose. But Kingsley did have a twin brother and had already used a doppelganger to recreate and test the goblin serum so that he could perfect it.


You just mean how his twin brother posed as him while he acted as Hobgoblin back in the day, as shown in Hobgoblin Lives LS?


    Quote:
    I never accepted that Leeds was the actual Hobgoblin, Hobby gained strength equal to Spiderman from the goblin serum and was more then willing to kill. Even caught by surprise as he was, if Leeds really was the Hobgoblin he would have torn those normal human assassins to shreds.


Ned Leeds would really have done something like that, or do you mean while under Kingsley's control?

Yes Kingsley's brother did aid in the deception back in the day, I need to go back and reread those classic tales, so much better then the grist Marvel grinds out now.


If memory serves, per the Hobgoblin Lives mini, Kingsley wanted to retire as Hobgoblin and knew assassins were hired to kill him and set up Leeds to take the fall. Leeds wasn't juiced with the goblin serum he was just brain twisted and confused.

Macendale's constant failures as the new Hobgoblin prompted Kingsley's ego to seek him out and make Macendale pay.
