The Alien Costume: Part 1 - S1-E8

Trivia: When Peter Parker is testing the costume changing capabilities of the symbiote, he suggests "that guy from Aerosmith," and materializes a suit similar to what Joe Perry from Aerosmith wears. Joe Perry composed the theme song for this show. (00:14:20)

More trivia for Spider-Man

Answer: In the comics, Hobgoblin's true identity was kept a mystery for a long time intentionally and while many fans deduced it was Kingsley, and creator Roger Stern was leaning that way, Stern left the series in 1984. In 1987 Hobgoblin's identity was revealed to be Ned Leeds and then Macendale became Hobgoblin. It wasn't until 1997 that Sterns wrote the mini-series "Hobgoblin Lives" and retconned Kingsley as the original Hobgoblin.


Answer: I could be wrong, but I believe the Hobgoblin in Marvel Comics around the same time this show was airing was also Jason Macendale. I have a Hobgoblin trading card from around 1992 or 1993, and it identifies him as Jason Phillips Macendale when listing his real name.
