It's been almost 10 years since we've seen the original Hobgoblin, Roderick Kingsley. Last we saw him, he was sunbathing in the Caribbean. I for one, think it's time for a comeback. We need another goblin since Norman Osborn is off leading the Thunderbolts. Now's the perfect time for the Hobgoblin to return and lay a world of hurt on your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. But let's also see him return as Norman Osborn's enemy as well. That would make for some really good stories. They could have that his money is all gone, his brother (Daniel) is dead, and now he has nothing left to lose. With that said, have him return to get revenge on those who ruined his life (Osborn for taking over his company, Betty Brant for helping to expose him as the Hobgoblin, and Spider-Man for foiling him at every turn). Plus, we may also get to see the greatest goblin battle/story of all time, with Spidey in the middle of it all. I feel that Kingsley has the power to orchestrate one of the most brilliant schemes Spider-Man has ever seen: To not only destroy Spidey, his friends, and family, but his greatest enemy (Osborn), as well. I also heard some say that he could/should come back and infiltrate the Thunderbolts (Perhaps in disguise) to attack Osborn or turn the Thunderbolts against him. If he decides not to do that, perhaps he could form/lead a new team of villains to fight the Thunderbolts while he focuses on Osborn. I was thinking he could form a new Sinister Syndicate, Masters of Evil or something like that (Perhaps a new team name?).
Here's some possible recruits:
1.) Chameleon (To help infiltrate the Thunderbolts)
5.) (New) Jack O' Lantern
As you can probably tell, I'm a big fan of the Hobgoblin. He's on of my favorite Spidey villains. I feel that he's a really cool and under-used villain as of late. How about you? Would you like to see Roderick Kingsley return as the Hobgoblin?
