And by numeral number six, I of course mean Kraven. Did we really need to see him back? And I mean, you can't really do anything with him. The guy killed himself. He pretty much wore out his return ticket then. It's different from bringing back other characters like Norman Osborn or Aunt May, because their deaths did bring their stories to an end, but there essential parts of the ongoing Spider-Man mythos, and the way that, well, at least the way that Norman died allowed for him to come back. But Kraven died INTENTIONALLY, the rest died from a result of something. And Kraven already beat Spider-Man. That was the entire thing with his death. He won. He played out his swan song. Bringing Kraven back was a real waste, because unlike Norman, he's not a pivotal villian. In addition, we have about ten of his kids still around. But if they brought back Kraven after all these years, that gives me hope that they'll soon bring back Macendale, or Miles Warren.
I was so upset by Kraven's resurrection that I stopped reading the Spidey titles completely.
I'm hoping & praying that this new Hobgoblin isn't Ned Leeds back from the dead. Please let it be Bart Hamilton. (I don't read the Spidey books anymore but I read the interview with Dan Slott regarding the new Hobgoblin)
