After a series of robberies at Osborn Manufacturing, a new foe musters their strength and gets equipped for serious mayhem. The Hobgoblin is here, and he fears no one!
Hobgoblin (introduced in Amazing Spider-man 238) systematically raids Green Goblin's hideouts using information gained from Norman Osborn's journals. When Peter Parker comes to know of this, he guesses the next spot where Hobgoblin will hit. Spider-man meets Hobgoblin for the first time and a fierce battle ensues. Hobgoblin, lacking fighting skills and strength to face Spider-man, is injured. He escapes after damaging some gas pipelines and thereby forcing Spider-man to concentrate on stopping a major gas leak and fire.
