Jennifer D'Angelo was an ordained priest who worked at Saint Patrick's Cathedral in Downtown, Nueva York. She frequently encountered Spider-Man during his ventures into Downtown.[1] Although she was the sister of Dana D'Angelo, Miguel O'Hara's fiancé, she never met Miguel as "Miguel" prior to Dana's death, due to a falling out between the sisters.[2]

She also had a secret identity as "Goblin", a rabble-rouser in Downtown who intended to take Spider-Man's place as the defender of Downtown and its people. Goblin told Kasey Nash and the gangs Downtown that the S-Man was a corporate sellout working for Alchemax, and set out to prove it. Goblin had an alliance with Vulture to defeat Spider-Man.[3]

  • Goblin 2099's identity became a twisted mess due to Peter David's abrupt departure from the original Spider-Man 2099 series. David only intended Gabriel O'Hara to be a red herring for the Goblin identity, and planned to reveal Father Jennifer was the Goblin. When David left the title two issues before cancellation, a dialogue box was added in issue #44 during editing that deliberately shifted a conversation between Jennifer and Gabe to pin the Goblin identity on him.[4] The fill-in writer for Spider-Man 2099 #45 explicitly pointed the finger at Gabriel. This was later retconned in 2099: Manifest Destiny #1 where the characters established that Gabe was not the Goblin, but had been framed by a shape changer whose true identity remained unknown. However, 2099: Manifest Destiny #1 then was in turn retconed into merely a possible future of Earth-928 When David restarted to write Spider-Man 2099, he decided to use the "alternate reality escamotage" to restablish Goblin's identity as Father Jennifer.[5]
