Something Can Stop the Juggernaut = Return of the Hobgoblin?

If the overall sales are tremendously high for Roger Stern's "Something Can Stop the Juggernaut", is it possible that we could see Stern bring back his most infamous creation (In a good way, folks!), the Hobgoblin? Retirement seems like something that would bore the hell outta Kingsley after so long (C'mon! It's been over 10 years!). And this seems like another opportune time for him to make his way back into not only Spider-Man's life, but at the forefront of the Marvel U.'s villains again. Norman Osborn's final hour (Siege) is upon us, and the Hood has been "Kingpin" for too long, in this writer's opinion. Time, for a coup, I say! Who's with me?!

i hope so i love the hob goblins

He's always appearing in top 10 Spider-Man villain lists, but somehow he's still not back yet.

i'd start reading spider-man if the hobgoblin was in them, right now it just seems like endless tie-ins i just don't want to jump into

@Sinister Blood:
Coincidentally, I am reading it because Hobgoblin's co-creator Roger Stern is writing a Spider-Man vs. the Juggernaut 3-parter.

Hm, interesting. But the original Goblins are better to me.

@InnerVenom123:
I dunno. I think the original Green Goblin and Hobgoblin are great but for different reasons. Green Goblin mercillessly killed Gwen Stacy, and Hobgoblin mercilessly framed Ned Leeds and got him killed. Those are just the tips of each Goblin's respective iceburg.

Haha, I figured as much, but it can't hurt to rally support. And yes, he always stood out from the other Goblins thanks to his awesome factor.

 yeah they should do that dues ex machina shit and cut back on all the goblins, i mean they're cool but you get to more than 2-3 and it's just ridiculous, look at the clone saga, kaine cool, ben reilly cool, spidercide wtf, or the symbiotes venom sweet, carnage sweet, all the other ones....wtf?    yes

@Sinister Blood: haha so true. i mean grey goblin? good green goblin? what were they thinking?

@zombietag:
Villains going good was a huge '90s trend (Venom for example) and Grey Goblin was just... just stupid.

I was never a big fan of Hobgoblin. Not that I disliked him, he was probably my least favorite of all the Goblins. Including Grey Goblin and Demogoblin.

@Nobody:
Do you mean Hobgoblin in general, or a specific wearer (Kingsley, Macendale, Leeds, etc.)?

@kingfrogger666:
You obviously haven't been reading, friend; there's been a couple, actually.

@kingfrogger666:
You obviously know nothing of the Hobgoblin. He puts many otherSpider-Man  villains to shame. Have you even read the original Hobgoblin issues by Roger Stern?

Just Hobgoblin in general. I've never been excited about a Hobgoblin storyline. Like I said, its not that I've disliked them.

yer, they suck the big one!!
Posted by The Hobgoblin
@kingfrogger666: Oh? And just who do you consider to be a "great" villain?
@Nobody: Ah, well that's fair. I do, however, also like the Green Goblin. I just have a great liking for ol' Kingsley. Not to mention it's been so long since he showed up.

I totally agree. Been waiting for Hobby's return for quite some time.

Far too long if you ask me. Hard to believe he was his number one foe for a time. If you asked a recent younger fan who he is, they'd look at you funny and say you mean the Green Goblin.

i think they should bring back the hobgoblin..............but with some one new under the mask like peters old roomate?? what happened to him? he went to jail for framing spidey what better way to get revenge then get some exploding pumpkins and a jet powerd glider. 
if they can do something like that and make a new hobgoblin it could be as interesting as the last.

@squiresmadnessmachine:
While I would prefer Kingsley under the mask, that is certainly a good idea if they decide to bring him back. Perhaps he is the new Hobby and this, as it has in the past, prompts Kingsley to exit retirement and attempt to finish him off.
