Hobgoblin from Marvel Snap 001
In the Earth-616 Universe, the Hobgoblin mantle has been passed to many individuals, though former fashion designer Roderick Kingsley is the original, longest running and possibly best-known Hobgoblin.

Other characters who used the Hobgoblin identity in the main Marvel universe during Roderick's numerous bouts of retirement include:

  • Jason Macendale, Jr., a mercenary who started his criminal career as the original Jack O'Lantern; he took on the mantle after Leeds' death, but was later killed by Roderick. He was recently brought back to life by the Jackal.
  • Phillip "Phil" Urich, a mentally unstable hero-turned-villain who slaughtered Daniel Kingsley and operated as the Hobgoblin until he became the Goblin Knight and later the Goblin King. He was later killed by Norman Osborn. But brought back to life by the Goblin Serum.
