    So, think about this. Roderick is the Hobgoblin, but he has an IDENTICAL twin brother. Sounds like a soap opera plot and trope doesn't it? Sounds kind of like a cheat. It seems that Stern (Roger, who created the Hobgoblin.) was getting around the whole Roderick being the Hobgoblin when the two of them were together in the same room at the same time (Which I believe is why Tom Defalco didn't want to reveal Kingsley as the Hobgoblin.)by using Daniel. So yeah, Daniel isn't really a "character" character, but isn't it kind of stupid and soap operary? Then again, I liked Macendale as the Hobgoblin (Overall.), so maybe I'm in the minority. And speaking of, did they ever give us a reason as to why Phil turned into a raving loon? I hear that the REAL Hobgoblin (Kinglsey.) is back. What's he up to? I hear that he was working as a mercenary (The Black Spider or Tarantula or something.), which seems more like Macendale's deal. I wonder if Slott brought him back because of all of the negativity surrounding his death. And it was pretty dam convenient that Phil was in one of his hideouts at that exact time. Anyhow-

Of all the soap opera tropes the evil twin one is always my favorite.

I like soap opera tropes honestly. Evil twins. Long lost bastard children who want revenge. Evil rich white family that practically owns the town. Rapidly aging children. Psycho Femme Fatale who keeps the lily white virginal romantic rival in a pit for months while she feeds her nothing but fisheads...I just love shit like that.

I love those tropes more than I do your typical comic tropes like clones, time travel, alternate futures, alien invasions etc.

I was named after Joshua Taylor because my mother was obsessed with Days of Our Lives.
