Spider-Man: Hobgoblin Lives #1
January, 1997

Appearances:
Spider-Man(Peter Parker), Mary Jane Watson-Parker, Betty Brant-Leeds, Jacob Conover, J. Jonah Jameson, Marla Jameson, Hobgoblin V(Jason Philip Macendale), George Vandergill, Sen. Robert Martin, Donald Menken, Daniel Kingsley, Hobgoblin II(Roderick Kingsley), Jonas Harrow, Joe Robertson

Synopsis:
Peter and Mary Jane chat about Jason Macendale’s upcoming Jury decision. Elsewhere, Betty wakes up from a dream. Meanwhile, Jacob Conover drinks his sorrows away. Elsewhere, Jonah and marla chat about the Hobgoblin. The next day, Jason is found guilty, and he blurts out to the press that Ned Leeds was the Hobgoblin before he was. Around town Sen. Martin, George Vandergill, Donald Menken, Donald and Roderick Kingsley, Dr. Jonas Harrow, Jonah, and Robbie Roberton react to the revelation. Later, the real Hobgoblin kills Macendale in his cell.

References:
This mini takes place along with issues of the regular series’ published at the time.(early 1997) Norman Osborn is back, Jacob Conover was recently fired, the clone mess is behind us, Peter & Mary Jane are living in Aunt May’s house, etc.

There are A LOT of FlashBacks to previous issues through this mini, but they’re all ‘reminder’ FlashBacks to catch everyone up to speed on the Hobgoblin plot. Nothing new, really. There are also a couple of revelations about the Hobgoblin, but the chronologies already reflect those, so I’m only going to be focusing on the current stuff.
