Now that Goblin Nation has wrapped up, what are general thoughts on the storyline? My take personally was that it had an interesting premise( Given the fact that I'm a huge Goblin fan) but I felt it could have been better-especially with the lackustre ending we got. Some of the issues I had was that the threat of the Goblin Underground felt too contained as we never really felt the impact that the whole group had on New York aside from sticking it to Spock and several people affiliated with him. I mean this is a town that has the Avengers, SHIELD, FF and is basically home to most of Marvel's super characters and we never saw much of them for most of the run except at the end. Also, I didn't really care for the character assassination of Liz as it makes no sense that she would willingly help Osborn given the fact she hates him and has a bad history with goblins period-I do hope it's revealed that she was brainwashed or forced to help him very soon. And perhaps the biggest gripe is that Ock himself was not in the final issue as this was basically his book when he was posing as Spiderman.
The good stuff was that Superior Spiderman annual where we did get some insight to Phil which showed that he did have some redeeming qualities left with his concern for his uncle's safety, as I don't find Phil interesting at all as a generic Macendale goblin villain which he has been reduced to-hopefully at some point Phil can be redeemed though as the only things I see happening for him now is either getting killed or sent to the Big House.
Overall, I wish the event could have been longer and we got a more detailed look as to what impact the Goblin Underground had on New York during their rampage and that the other heroes were seen earlier in the story. Furthermore, I would love to have seen where characters like Roderick Kingsley or even the Kingpin were during Goblin Nation as they were laying low. Again, I liked the idea of Goblin Nation but I wish we could have gotten more as the ending didn't feel satisfactory.
