With the aid of the mysterious young hero known as Darkhawk, Spider-Man defeated the demonically possessed villain called the Hobgoblin. The Hobgoblin had been hired by mob boss Philippe Bazin to appropriate Darkhawk’s amulet, the source of his powers. As the battle raged, Spider-Man who had been alerted by news bulletins describing the conflict, joined the fray. Despite Darkhawk’s inexperience, the two heroes were able to drive the Hobgoblin off without his prize. At a crucial moment, Spider-Man prevented Darkhawk from killing their foe, leaving the neophyte hero with an impression of what a true hero should be.
