Macendale quickly became known as formidable replacement for the "original" Hobgoblin even tangling with the Green Goblin...Hobby II, believe it or not, actually appeared just as much as the original Hobgoblin and became a HUGE Spidey villain appearing in every Spider-Man title.


 

Macendale appeared in other titles as well such as Dr, Strange, Moonknight, and in Darkhawk as Darkhawk needed some help from Spidey himself!...Hobby II was murdered by the Original Hobgoblin who was embarrassed by the second Hobgoblin, but the original came back strong and again the Hobgoblin is one of the most feared villains for Spider-Man.
