Comic Book Spotlight: DEMOGOBLIN

Posted in Comic Books, Demons, superheroes on February 27, 2015 by chrisdsav

OK so I kind of did one of these last year when Amazing Spider-Man 2 came out and we covered The Gentleman.(don’t bother reading it that whole story line Sony created will go no where now that they cancelled Amazing Spider-Man 3 and the Sinister Six movie.)
SO now were going back to Spider-man once again with more of a Horror theme covering The Demogoblin
Created in Spectacular Spider-Man #147 by Sal Buscema and Gerry Conway.

After losing fights with Spider-Man and the Green Goblin in Amazing Spider-Man #312, Jason Philip Macendale Jr., aka the Hobgoblin, took advantage of the Inferno crisis. (a X-Men Crossover that spread throughout the whole Marvel Universe, the closest we have come to a Massive Horror crossover event in the Marvel Universe.) Following several demons back to their lair and confronting their demonic lord, N’Astirh. N’Astirh was so amused by this human he granted his wish and unbeknownst to Jason grafted a demon to his soul and transforming him into the Demonic Hobgoblin.

Demogoblin 1

Once again defeated by Spider-Man, Hobgoblin teamed up with Carrion to take out Spider-Man and they were both caught in a gas Leak explosion in Spectacular Spider-Man #163. Doctor Strange tried to help Hobgoblin but he was too far gone at that point, in Doctor Strange vol 2 #11 during the Act of Vengeance, Strange cast a spell and made Jason believed his face had returned to normal, this only further drove him to madness.

Demo Goblin 2
Several months later in Spider-Man #6 & 7 he kidnapped a bunch of people and really believed to be on a mission from God, kept an innocent child to him self while battling Spider-Man and the Dan Ketch Ghost Rider. At this point Jason was so far gone and the Demon had taken over.

In Amazing Spider-Man # 334-339 and Spider-Man# 18-23 Hobgoblin was involved in both the Return of the Sinister Six and Revenge of the Sinister Six storylines, he had replaced Kraven the Hunter who was one of the original members but had died during Fearful Symmetry Kravens Last Hunt. He was still on a path to kill all sinners and believed Doctor Octopus group was the way to do it.
Shortly after he tried to pick a fight with Moon Night in Moon Knight #33 thinking him a sinner since he used to be a Mercenary, makes you wonder why he never went after the Punisher? Of course why didn’t he kill him self as Jason use to be one as well…thats a sin right its very confusing.

Demo Goblin 3
In Ghost Rider vol 2 #16 and 17, the Hobgoblin kidnapped Francis Ketch, Danny’s adopted mother from her church. He believed he was once again doing God’s work hearing her cries to God to save the soul of her daughter Barbara, who had died a few months ago. Danny as Ghost Rider, and Johnny Blaze the original Ghost Rider and Spider-Man showed up to stop Hobgoblin. They rescued Dan’s mother and noticed a transformation, as if Jason was fighting to get control of his body back.

demogoblin 5
In Web of Spider-Man #84 the two beings trapped in Hobgoblin’s body started fighting for control the combination of Hellfire form Ghost Rider’s Dan and John and the constant fighting had taken its toll on Hobgoblin and the demon separated from Jason in Web of Spider-Man # 86. Now he was called Demogoblin. Now the Demon wanted to kill Macendale for all the sins he had committed and hunted him down eventually teaming up with the Spider-Man Doppelganger in Spider-Man #24 during the Infinity War story Line. (Another Marvel multi book cross over)

Demo Goblin 4

During a cross over with Ghost Rider/ Johnny Blaze Spirits of Vengeance and Web Of Spider-Man, Spidey had to keep Jason alive to stand trial for a murder he committed. While in the sewer he ran in to Blaze and the Rider and Venom as they were hunting Deathwatch who was trying to resurrect their leader. It was a lot of characters and Demogoblin and the Spider Doppelganger were there. They failed to kill Macendale.

Demo Goblin 6
Demo then found his way into the messed up serial killer Carnage family during the Maximum Carnage story which ran thru all the Spider-Man summer titles in 1993. (too many to list here). The Battle waged all over New York with hundreds dead and only thru the combined efforts of Spider-Man, Iron first, Black Cat, Venom, Morbius, Nightwatch, Cloak and Dagger, Deathlok, Captain America, and Firestar were they able to stop Carnage, Shriek, Carrion, The Dopple Ganger and DemoGoblin. The Spider Doppelganger was killed by Carnage and the DemoHobgoblin was captured but got away shortly after. He would encounter Venom and Morbius the Living Vampire again in the Venom Sinners Takes All mini series.

Demo Goblin 7
In Spider-Man # 46,47,48 The Hobgoblin wanted to put an end to his demonic half once and for all. Having obtained ultimate strength from Kraven the Hunter’s son The Grimm Hunter, Hobgoblin got into a fight with Demogoblin in a church and while the church was collapsing around them, Demo saw a young boy about to be crushed and risked his own life to save him by Spider-Man. In doing so his strength gave out and he was crushed to death.

Hobgoblin later tried to kidnap his own son was foiled by Spider-Man and was sent to jail. Eventually got a cybernetic upgrade from Norman Osbourne was defeated by Spider-Man and then killed in jail by the original Hobgoblin Rodrick Kingsley in Hobgoblin Lives # 1.

Why did I start this with a minor character in the Goblin saga? Mainly because I always thought he was the coolest of the Goblins. Is he dead?? Well he was a demon from HELL, can you really kill them? Doppelganger Spider-Man came back in the 2012 mini Series CARNAGE, and no one seems to stay dead in comics forever. We shall see.
Not The End?…..

The Fly: Outbreak

Posted in Comic Books, Monsters, news, SciFi on December 18, 2014 by chrisdsav

HOLY SHIT just in time for Spring in March when all the bugs return IDW launches a FLY comic book. The original movie was directed by David Cronenberg and is a great example of how a remake should be done.


Be afraid. Be very afraid… The story that began in David Cronenberg’s film update of The Fly continues next year with the five-issue miniseries The Fly: Outbreak, written by Brandon Seifert (Hellraiser, Witch Doctor) with painted interior and cover art by menton3 (Silent Hill, Monocyte).

Issue #1 will hit in March and will boast variant covers by Jason Edmiston and Lukas Ketner.

Years ago, a scientist had a horrific accident when he tried to use his newly invented teleportation device and became a human/fly hybrid. Now his almost-human son continues to search for a cure for the mutated genes. But a breakthrough turns into a breakout, and anyone exposed risks turning into a monster as well…

“To be totally honest, The Fly is one of the most disturbing things I’ve ever seen!” said Seifert. “It was really resonant for its time. And in the last 20 years or so, with all the advances in Genetically Modified Organisms, the film has taken on a lot of meaning it didn’t originally have. It’s really exciting to explore those elements in this miniseries — and great to have an amazing, super-distinctive artist like menton3 on the visuals!”

“Equal parts gory allegory and tragic love story, The Fly was perhaps David Cronenberg’s crowning achievement,” editor Denton J. Tipton said. “That’s a lot to live up to, but I believe Brandon and Menton are equal to the task. The script is sharp and poignant, and the art is visceral and haunting. No one is safe!”

Nothing spreads faster than fear… be part of the Outbreak in March 2015.
