EDITOR'S OPINIONAlright folks here is another VC for another member of Spiderman's Rogues gallery however unlike the previous two this shall be a substantially smaller VC so this will be a somewhat longer review. Hobgoblin made his VA debut in the 90s Spiderman series in which he was voiced by Mark "The Joker" Hamill and lets just say there is a reason why I placed "The Joker" in between Mark's name like that. But to be fair there is a slight bit of difference and it does by all means work with the role as a violently insane super-villain such as the Hobgoblin. So basically say what you will about how this is a bit of a typecast for Mark Hamill but Mark's performance here while not as memorable as his work for certain other comic-book super-villains is a good memorable example of the voice-work in the 90's Spider-man series.
While the 90's Spider-man series is the only show with Hobgoblin so far (while yes one of Hobby's alter egos did appear on Spectacular Spider Man but Hobgoblin himself never had the chance to appear yet.) Hobgoblin's voice acted debut in Video Games was in the recent Spiderman Shattered Dimensions in which he was voiced by Steve Blum. Alright first of all yes I know this is the 2099 version but in all honest the only real substantial difference between the 2099 version and the original is looks and that's about it really. Anyways Blum does do a fairly good job delivering a gleefully wicked demonic performance for Hobgoblin and while its not completely different to his Green Goblin voice in Spectacular Spiderman I was pleasantly surprised on how it sounded different enough (well at least to me). Nevertheless while this performance may be for the 2099 version of Hobgoblin Steve's work would fit the original Hobgoblin as well. Overall while neither performance is the absolute best of both of these actors fine careers I will say that both of them did just fine for this VC.
