Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here's the archive of the moments posted so far!
Today we look at the introduction of one of the best supervillains of the 1980s, courtesy of Roger Stern and John Romita Jr.
Amazing Spider-Man #238 begins with Spider-Man chasing a group of four criminals.
He captures three of them easily enough, but one of them escapes into the sewers...
Spider-Man decides not to follow him...
The police even tell Spider-Man he did more than his share, so he's feeling good about himself.
However, the fourth criminal ended up discovering a hidden lair of the Green Goblin!
The con contacted a mysterious fellow to let him in on the secret. Once the news becomes public that the lair had been discovered (and blown up, to hide the fact that the criminal and the mystery man had looted the lair of all of its equipment), Spider-Man was not feeling too good, and his reaction to the news is coupled with our first meeting with the newest Spider-Man villain...
That's a great way to introduce a new villain!
"The" moment for me is the big reveal!
Man, it's hard to even remember the time that Hobgoblin was actually taken seriously as a villain, but it happened back then, honest!
