Macendale wanted the strength and speed of the original Green Goblin but realized that in trading his soul for the power, he was made into a monster...For a long time, there was much conflict between Phillip Macendale and the demon that possessed him...So much that he couldn't stand the pain that occurred within...He went on to fight many a foe including Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Ghost Rider and Moonknight as the "Demonic" Hobgoblin and created a couple of allies along the way including Carrion II, The Rose, and was even part of the new Sinister Six, but there was a battle brewing inside of Macendale over his body and the demon was not happy!




The Demon had enough...In Web Of Spider-Man #86, the demon that was battling for domination over Macendale's human form tore itself apart from Macendale's body and a new entity was formed named Demogoblin...This Goblin showcased a religious fervor and would punish all those that he deemed sinners, which were many...He was all over the place taking part in the huge Maximum Carnage  multi-part storyline and fought many in his brief career including Spidey, Ghost Rider, Blaze, Moonknight and others but his biggest enemy was the Macendale Hobgoblin who abruptly put an end to whatever life Demogoblin had by battling him to the death in a church...It was a pillar that gave way and caused a major crash that killed Demogoblin while he was saving the life of a child who he deemed "pure of heart".
