Bleeding Cool Notices That Marvel Has Goblin-Bent AXIS Cover

It's either a huge setback or a massive victory for the goblin community today - we're not sure which - as the Green Goblin has been replaced by the Hobgoblin on the cover for AXIS, the Marvel Comics blockbuster event comic of the century that follows the current Marvel Comics blockbuster event comic of the century, Original Sin. We first read about this on Bleeding Cool, where it was mentioned as an aside in an article that appeared, as far as we could tell, to be entirely about which versions of the cover Bleeding Cool noticed before other news outlets. I'm starting to think Rich Johnston derives some kind of sexual pleasure from pointing out he broke a story. It's like the way Jonah Weiland must ejaculate every time CBR uses the word "EXCLUSIVE" in an article. It's the only rational explanation for this nonsense.

But anyway, sure enough, buried amidst all the back-patting and horn-tooting was the fact that, without warning, ol' Norman Osborn was replaced by... whoever the fuck is wearing the Hobgoblin costume nowadays. Gwen Stacy? To punctuate this, the new cover features the exact same drawing of the Green Goblin, but re-colored.

The first cover, which we first noticed that Bleeding Cool said they noticed first.

Hey friend, have you heard the good news? Bleeding Cool noticed this cover first (after it was posted on USA Today)! Have you accepted Bleeding Cool as your personal lord and savior yet?

No one has asked him yet, but when Marvel Executive Editor Tom Brevoort finally addresses the change on his Tumblr, we're sure it will be in as condescending and persecuted a manner as possible.

"Hey, if I told you we always planned to swtch Greeny with Hobby,* you nerds would have just complained about that anyway," Brevoort will probably say in his venom-laced blog post before breaking out into a mind-blowing harmonica solo. "Don't let me stop comic book 'journalists' from generating clicks over this 'controversy.'"

*that's what he calls them

Tom Brevoort gives readers the runaround with his band, Blues Traveller.

So, to recap, first we were getting Green Goblin, now we're getting Hobgoblin, Tom Brevoort is a dick, and Rich Johnston notices everything first. Am I missing anything? God help me, how did I wind up in this business?
