Green Goblin #2
Issue(s): Green Goblin #2
And then, after the Misunderstanding, listening to Justice do his best Captain America impression, at which point the anti-establishment tendencies kick in and you decide you don't want to be part of the team anyway. He was only motivated to become a hero because a cameo by the Human Torch convinced him that chicks dig heroes anyway.
Later, he goes to meet one of his Uncle Ben's contacts for a story (mainly to impress Lynn Walsh), and winds up in a fight with the Rhino. And manages to win.
Tom DeFalco continues to surprise me with this series. Scott McDaniel's art is good too. It's more abstract than i'd think i'd like, but it works for me here.
I do feel bad for the Rhino. This same publication month, he was thrashed by the Hulk in a joke story. I get why being 'big and powerful, but also dumb' makes him a good choice for a high profile early win for a new hero, and i prefer that our hero fight a classic villain instead of some new 90s guy called Heavy Hytter or something. But i think the Rhino ought to get to, like, beat the crap out of Moon Knight or someone as compensation.
Quality Rating: C+
Chronological Placement Considerations: The MCP has the Rhino here after Hulk #435, but it seems like it could go either way.
Continuity Insert? N
