Whether Ned Leeds will indeed don the mantle of the Hobgoblin in future installments or if this remains a tantalizing “what if” scenario, only time will tell. Marvel enthusiasts can’t help but eagerly anticipate the next thrilling chapter in this iconic superhero saga.

“Another unused #spidermannowayhome idea that I’m thrilled made it into the “Art of” book. This was an early idea proposed where Ned gets a shot at riding the Goblin Glider during the final battle, a nice bit of fan service given Ned’s ultimate turn in the comic book universe. As serendipity would have it, Queens’ own Mets wear orange and blue, the colors of #hobgoblin, so I have Ned wearing the hoodie as another little nod. But just to show you how far we take research and character-building at #marvel #visdev, Ned’s wearing the number 50, an homage to Benny Agbayani, the Hawaiian-Filipino Mets left-fielder who would undoubtedly be one of Ned’s heroes, given their shared heritage.

“I painted the image in #Photoshop, and modeled and rendered the Glider in #Modo based my colleague @joshnizzi.art’s masterful update on the original. The classic Pumpkin Bomb in his hand was designed by my good friend.”
