Alright.. now that I have time for this and not going to bed. Because unlike some people I don't do six hour marathon debates, no matter how tempting it was. This is a rare treat, even for me.

*looks up* Yep that is the actual Dan Slott and not some pale impersonator (though Dan if you do reply I have to ask you: You do post on /co/ don't you? Because there was a moment back then someone posted as you and their prophecy of this arc came to pass. No Betty Brant and no closure appearance of her owning some Hobgoblin ass. Which made me assume what was to come.) I always wondered if that was truly you. Still, I'm very curious what led you to this thread? I mean I'm touched. Actually literally touched. I have to honestly admit my respect for you returns abit because you don't stray or hide like others. You face criticism head on. I like that.

But damn am I disappointed you didn't touch on what I really really wanted to talk about above in your post. I mean that above was just a minor issue to me. I didn't even consider talking about the issue until pressed. And what the hell, I bit never in my imagination thinking you actually come. But you did and posted so eloquently, that I'll give you that. No bets, no retort, I'll give you that win. But also because that wasn't the point of this thread.

No, what this thread is about to me was and always is for me always boils down to the one question I have for you. THE QUESTION. You don't have to answer it via here, you can always PM me. And if you do, I will truthfully keep quiet the entire conversation. Even more I give you my word I will be utterly quiet on this particular subject for good and instead just continue with insane theories with others on CBR. And if you don't believe me I am a man of my word. This very arc is proof of that since I actually went and buyed a Spider-Man comic something I promised would only happen if Kingsley was brought back. If you PM me, I'll keep secret whatever you tell me. I think you know quite easily what the question I have, given the very name of this thread.

Why did you kill Roderick Kingsley the original Hobgoblin? You stated before in that interview in my very first post that the book was closed on him. It was, I give you that. What Roger Stern and Glenn Greenburg wrote was a fitting end to the character. Yet, you yourself reopened and then quickly reclosed the book, why? What purpose was there for that other than to be a shock moment?

To me it felt aw come on, "what was the point then in bringing him back in the first place?" Other fans share these exact same thoughts. You know this, no doubt in that Hobgoblin thread at CBR and the very Amazing Spidey bullpen with a similar fan had the same interests as my own.

Yet I just want the answer to this question that boggles me. It's the entire point of my meddling to get your attention and get this answer that I hunger above all else answered. If you do answer this. No more, I keep quiet. One less spurned fanboy to deal with.


Dan Slott, if you PM Zechs with "I killed Kingsley because he's a bitch," I will purchase two copies of every comic you write for the rest of your/my life (or until the industry implodes).

Who the hell cares when a character is created? 90's or not, a good character is a good character.

The Spider-Buggy's gone rogue and tries to attack Spider-Man after he has a battle with some villain. Spidey beats it but notices a man in a swimsuit running away from the scene. Over in DC Atlantis, Aquaman gets attacked by marine animals wearing rabbit ear mind-controling devices. He defeats them and finds out about Spidey's problems so he heads to New Year City. They compare notes until a pair of big-ass tits on wheels with machine guns and catapults and mace shows up.

Next issue, Spidey and Aquay batle the big tits. They struggle but Spidey makes a slingshot with his webbing and send him and Aquay into the middle of the big tits. They discover Big Wheel and White Rabbit controlling and beat up Big Wheel. End issue.


Next Watchmen right there.

If history has taught me anything, we'll be hating the 00's soon enough. We always hate the previous decade for all the flaws we didn't notice when we were living it. Give it just a little more time.

And there'll be a lot to hate. But for some reason, the 80s always got a pass. Except for one extraordinary year ('85) the decade was just as crappy as any other..

The whole appeal of Hobgoblin was the mystery... to both Spider-Man and the fans. That made him, in part and in my opinion at least, WAY cooler than Green Goblin. To reveal his identity to the readers is just lame.

the 90's really deserves it for the most part though. I mean when your two biggest Spidey stories are Maximum Carnage and the Clone Saga, it really reflects poorly on the decade. And let's not forget teen tony and the new "sexy" avengers.

Everybody wants to see it. Slott's currently pitching the story to Marvel and DC.
