If you haven’t yet checked out the brand new Superior Spider-Talk.com web site, I recommend that you do so right away. Now, that you’ve done that, please check out my inaugural edition of a regular feature I’m going to write for the site, “It Feels Like the First Time.” In this column, I’m going to take a look at significant “firsts” in Spider-Man comics, i.e., first appearances of supporting characters, phrases, images and/or general concepts that have gone on to play a critical role in the Spider-Man mythos. Today I look at the very first “fake” Hobgoblin, from Amazing Spider-Man #245.
