When Spider-man foils the getaway of a group of bank robbers, he fails to capture one robber. This thief discovers the hidden headquarters of the Green Goblin! Seeking to make a profit, he leads a mysterious man to the headquarters, who promptly realizes the potential held within and apprehends Osborn's equipment. Now with the location of other warehouses and evil intentions, the man reveals himself as the Hobgoblin! How will Peter handle being indirectly responsible for this villain's creation?
