- I don't understand it. I had the upper hand, I should have defeated him, but I wasn't able to force myself to do it. Next time, his life will be mine!
When Aldrich Killian bought the likeness of America's most popular superhero, Spider-Man, he decided that Spider-Man needed a new villain to keep things fresh, but rather than create a villain that might be able to defeat him, Aldrich decided to create one designed to fail in his attempted attack on Spider-Man.
The scientists at Killian Enterprises soon began working on creating an artificially intelligent android, using the technology they had created over the past years including Vibranium and Nano-fiber. Eventually, the body was done, and Aldrich was very pleased with its appearance. It was Killian himself who activated the Hobgoblin's mind in the end, and sent him after Spider-Man.
Hobgoblin soon found Spider-Man swinging through the city and he attacked him, catching him off guard. At first, Spider-Man thought he would be easily defeated, but Hobgoblin proved himself over and over, nearly knocking Spider-Man unconscious. When he was about to deliver the final blow, there seemed to be a force field the stopped him from killing Spider-Man. This gave him the opportunity to recover and take out Hobgoblin, gaining praise from the crowd, but before he could be arrested, he was called back to the lab by Aldrich, and he flew away, preventing Spider-Man from following him.
