    Default Red Goblin: RED DEATH Announced

    https://www.marvel.com/amp/articles/...in-red-death-1



    "Publishing announcements are coming fast and furious out of San Diego Comic-Con 2019, and the retailer panel introduced several sensational stories that are coming to Marvel Comics! Just one of these stories is a look back at the reign of one of Spider-Man's most terrifying foes -- the Red Goblin AKA Norman Osborn, in possession of the Carnage Symbiote and the Goblin formula! The rowdy, raging Red Goblin will be revisited in RED GOBLIN: RED DEATH #1 by writers Pat Gleason, Rob Fee, and Sean Ryan with art by Pete Woods, coming in October!"


    Will this be cool? I'm pretty sure this is a one-shot. RED DEATH sounds pretty damn cool.
    Our main character, a socially awkward outcast, gains newfound confidence and arrogance before committing a string of horrid acts. He then wears a fancy suit and proceeds to dance like a maniac to music that isn't actually there playing around him.

    This is kind of random. Red Goblin was an isolated thing so not sure how much material you can get out of it, even with a one shot.

    Bonus points are Gleason writing it.

    It was the same name as the evil Batman Flash from DC Metal.

    I never liked the concept so this one is a hard pass for me.

    What turn u off to the red goblin? Also I thought it was a tie in to Absolute Carnage cause Norman should have a codex as well as Normie

    A cheap mashup of two characters who already worked well as separate entities. Red Goblin felt like nothing more than a gimmick, a monster of the month if you will.

    I mean, if they want Halloween books, I'd much rather take this over last year's mediocrity. OR maybe Lowe and co. wanna see if the concept has legs.

    To each their own. I have zero interest in the book if you do more power to you.

    Pretty disappointed. I was hoping Norman would be gone for a while and not have a major appearance again. I also wanted the Red Goblin to be an isolated one-time thing.

    But hey if we got a rematch where Spidey actually overpowers Red Goblin I'll let that pass.

    This doesn’t appear to be a return of Red Goblin; seems to be a revisit to his early days——an “Untold Tales” kinda thing. Not going to be set in current continuity.

    While I'm just going to come out and say it again for those in the back *RED GOBLIN DOESN'T WORK*

    I am willing to give it the benefit of the doubt for a one-shot (or whatever it is) trying to do that. Yeah Red Goblin would be a concept Marvel in the 90's would've laughed at, but they even joked about what would become Weapon H and that turned out well enough. Maybe the concept can be explored better here. It's not exactly grabbing me, but I'll pick it up on the off chance someone made it workable.

    TBH however, I'm more convinced that this is a sort of "synergy" thing and that someone has an idea for either the multiverse in a Miles film or the MCU. Someone over at corporate is taking notes though I'm sure.
