Product Backstory
Successful fashion designer and millionaire Roderick Kingsley had built his empire through underworld ties and unethical practices. When one of his criminal associates, George Hill, stumbled upon an old secret lair of the Green Goblin villain, presumed dead, he relayed this information to Kingsley, who killed Hill to ensure the secret would be kept. Reading through the journals of the original Green Goblin, Norman Osborn begin_of_the_skype_highlighting     end_of_the_skype_highlighting, and examining his paraphernalia and weaponry, Kingsley found himself enthralled with the idea of becoming a costumed criminal. Forging a new alter ego, Kingsley created a costume and donned the persona of the Hobgoblin.

Within the pages of Norman Osborn's journals, Kingsley found valuable information, which he intended to use in blackmailing several key figures, including Osborn's son Harry and newsman J. Jonah Jameson. Inevitably, this drew him into conflict with Spider-Man, whom Kingsley saw as merely an afterthought and a nuisance. But when the web-slinger bested him several times, Kingsley became obsessed with beating Spider-Man and set out to reproduce Osborn's original strength enhancing formula.

In an attempt to avoid suffering the formula-induced insanity that plagued Norman Osborn begin_of_the_skype_highlighting     end_of_the_skype_highlighting, Kingsley decided to test it on small-time thug Arnold "Lefty" Donovan. Kingsley sent the formula-enhanced Lefty after Spider-Man, monitoring the thug's vitals from afar to check for abnormalities, but Spidey defeated him handily. In the hold of the web-slinger, Lefty threatened to compromise the real Hobgoblin's identity, so Kingsley remotely controlled the goblin glider to crash, killing the thug before Spider-Man could extract any information. Believing the test a success, Kingsley underwent the formula treatment and emerged with strength that surpassed even the original Green Goblin.
