    Seriously? They are trying to walk back on the death of Ned Leeds?

    While the tale of his survival is plausible, I am going with Peter's feeling that it is too good to be true.

Indeed. It doesn't match.

Ned Leeds was easily killed by the Foreigner's agents precisely because Roderick Kingsley didn't administer the Goblin serum to Ned Leeds and, thus, never gave him any superhuman powers to begin with. The original Hobgoblin needed Ned to be killed in his stead.

Given that Nick Spencer is obviously a fan of Peter David, it would mean that Ned Leeds is reestablished as the 1st Hobgoblin instead of Roderick Kingsley.

But it is very unlikely because, after all this time, it would be far from a popular move with the readership.

The Ned Leeds clone recently died in Peter Parker's arms and, just before that, tried to warn Peter of an impending danger.

Whatever or whoever this "new Ned Leeds" is, he doesn't tell the whole truth.
