The original Hobgoblin, Roderick Kingsley, will be revisited in the upcoming series Symbiote Spider-Man: Alien Reality. Writer Peter David and artist Greg Land, authors of the original Symbiote Spider-Man limited series from earlier this year, reunite for a second title flashing back to Peter Parker’s time wearing the Venom symbiote.
“In the oversized, 40-page first issue, Peter Parker finds himself entrenched in battle with one of his greatest-ever foes – the Hobgoblin!” reads Marvel.com‘s description of the first issue. “But where did the Super Villain also known as Roderick Kingsley get his new powers…?”
In previous comic books, it was specified that Kingsley received his powers by recreating Dr. Mendel Stromm’s Green Goblin formula, creating a new version without many of the harmful side effects.
Symbiote Spider-Man: Alien Reality is scheduled to debut this December; the publisher hasn’t specified the length of the series.
